BMW Australia has responded to demand for its diesel engines with the introduction of a new entry model to the BMW X6 range: the BMW X6 xDrive30d.

The three-litre straight-six cylinder turbo-diesel engine has already proven successful across the BMW range, including the X5 where it accounts for well over half of all X5 sales in Australia.

Demand for BMW diesel technology has soared in recent times with the car maker selling more diesel than petrol engines in Australia in 2010 for the first time ever.

Priced at $109,900* the BMW X6 xDrive30d becomes the new entry model to the X6 range. (copyright image)

The X6 xDrive30d boasts 180 kW of power output and peak torque of 540 Nm enabling the new model to sprint to 100 km per hour in 7.5 seconds.

Like all other models in the X6 line-up, the X6 xDrive30d gets an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard, producing finely tuned gear shift ratios for increased comfort, dynamics and efficiency.

Dynamic Performance Control, which is unique to the BMW X6, is a standard feature on the X6 xDrive30d, giving the unusually-styled vehicle the agility and handling capabilities similar to a sports car.

The X6 xDrive30d also features a number of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies including Low Rolling Resistance Tyres, third-generation common-rail diesel technology and Brake Energy Regeneration, making it supremely efficient, without compromising power or performance.

The X6 xDrive30d also sees the introduction of a ‘five-seater’ option with a three-passenger rear seat now available across the X6 range for the first time. This fifth seat, incorporating a three-point safety belt, retains a centre armrest and the 60:40 fold-down split of the rear seats remains unchanged.

Despite its highly-competitive pricing, the BMW X6 xDrive30d offers high standard specification including 19”Star-spoke alloy wheels, Sport Seats, Sports leather steering wheel, Bi-Xenon headlights, and Nevada leather upholstery.

A number of innovations from the BMW ConnectedDrive suite of technologies are also featured as standard including Head-Up Display, Rear View Camera with Top View, Professional Navigation, Bluetooth and USB Audio Interface.

High-Beam Assist, Automatic Tailgate and Park Distance Control front and rear complete the value package standard on the X6 xDrive30d.

An optional Sports Package will also be available on the new model offering 20” light alloy wheels, a high-gloss shadow line and anthracite roofliner, all for $5,000*.

The BMW X6 xDrive30d is available now, with the first vehicles expected to arrive in local showrooms in the next week or two.

NOTE: * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
