The car that gave rise to the Acura ZDX, Honda Crosstour and, soon, the Mercedes-Benz MLC, is back for a second generation.
Often pilloried by the press as the car that answered the question no-one asked, the E71 BMW X6 was popular enough with the buying public — BMW says it sold 250,000 copies — to warrant a second iteration.
The F16 X6 comes equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, electric tailgate, 8-speed automatic, leather trim, dual-zone climate control, auto-dimming rear vision mirrors, and rear seats that split-fold 40/20/40.
Options include adaptive LED headlights, hands-free tailgate operation, touchpad for the iDrive controller, Bang & Olufsen surround sound system, surround view cameras, night vision, speed limit info, head-up display, automatic parking and internet connectivity.
