In addition to inventing its own class, the BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe® brings with it a host ofinnovative technologies. For example, power distribution is nominally 40% front axle, 60% rear, forbalanced handling. However, BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive technology continuously andundetectably transfers power forward and back between both axles, depending upon which hasgreater traction. And Dynamic Performance Control adds a secondary functionality of shiftingpower between the rear wheels. This helps maintain the sportier driving dynamics associatedwith rear-wheel-drive vehicles, so you get the best of both worlds: sporty road feel combinedwith pavement-hugging traction.

Daring designs20 21Daring designs: futuristic boats and the BMW X .The initial Wallypower sketch was a drawing of a Batman boat done by Bassani’s children.DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT:MISTER WALLY.A bold innovator in yacht design, Milan-born LucaBassani Antivari’s seminal concepts from the early s, initially derided, are now global design icons.Bassani’s boats are not different for effect.Their differences are their strengths.THEESSENCEOF COOLAT SEA.Ever since Luca Bassani Antivari breezed inwith his ﬁ rst futuristic -foot racing vessel,there have really been only two types of ultra-exclusive yachts: the traditional and the Wally.The latter is already an icon of our time,synonymous with cool, clever modernity.Bassani, , is a bold nonconformist whoexudes a surprisingly quiet certainty. Everygesture says, “I’m on exactly the right track.”The name of his Monaco-based company isalso surprising. You have to be fairly laid back toname your business after an American comicstrip character. But it all makes sense becauseBassani’s boats always surprise with theirunusual character and technical solutions. Forexample, the -foot two-master Wallygator IIhas an unusually wide stern and a specialanchor management system in the center.We meet in a north Italian boatyard, the barestructure of Bassani’s third Wally standinginverted in front of us. Bassani’s creations areaudacious, surprising and refreshingly different.It’s easy to think that Bassani is being provoca-tive on purpose with the daring simplicity ofhis boats. But Wally is not different for itsown sake. “Wally is a way of looking at things,”he says. “A way of considering what is reallyneeded on the water and ﬁ nding new solutions.”His debut motor yacht, the -foot, , -hpWallypower, surges from Monaco to Portoﬁ noin a short one and a half hours. Once there, youenjoy your aperitif – not on the stuffy afterdeck,but on the foredeck, cooled by the eveningbreeze – another of Bassani’s ideas. As for theprism-shape superstructure, that was actuallysketched by Bassani’s children. It was theirvision of a cool boat for Batman.Clearly, Bassani likes to get to the heart ofmatters in his own particular way. And when thischarming provocateur does anything, he doesit with utter conviction. The Wallypower standsas a design icon and even became a ﬁ lm starin the science ﬁ ction movie, The Island. It alsobecame the prototype for his motor yacht range,from the new -foot WallyOne to a -foot,four-cabin rocket capable of knots.It’s easy to see why Bassani enjoys his BMW X ,with its focus on driving pleasure and strongindividual presence. He can even imagine alighter version of the vehicle – one that uses thecomposite-ﬁ ber technology used on his boats.“Ultimately,” he says, “a car has to be like a boat:to give enjoyment, look good and drive well.Otherwise it doesn’t interest me.”
Interior design22 23On the road and behind the wheel, the X stands out. This Sports Activity Coupe®may be difﬁ cult to classify at ﬁ rst glance. But from behind the wheel, it is pure BMW.The leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering wheel swiftly transmits your everydriving input; steering wheel-mounted paddles make shifting through the gears amotorsport-inspired experience. Gauges and instrument dials, enhanced with elegantPearl Gloss trim, are easy to read; every control is conveniently placed within arm’slength. Covering the instrument panel in soft leather adds to the premium ambiance.Standard appointments include iDrive, which offers a variety of entertainment andcommunications options, six programmable memory buttons, and a hard drive with GB of space that can store up to , songs. Kneepads that give your legs abetter grip in tight turns add a unique touch. And the commanding seat positionreminds you: once you’re in the BMW X , you’re in charge of the road.A FAMILIARPERSPECTIVEINSIDE A UNIQUE VEHICLE.Get the latest information on BMW standard and optional features, packages and technical speciﬁ cations.Visit bmwusa.com, select the BMW model of your choice, and click on “Features & Specs.”
PURE BMWLUXURY. DEGREES OFLuxury every day. You have to hand it to the BMW designers: they truly understand the concept of comfort. The BMW X offersa spacious interior that seats up to ﬁ ve, with a surprising amount of leg- and headroom for both the front and back seats. And whilesome all-wheel-drive vehicles may favor utility over luxury, the BMW X impresses with a wealth of premium interior features, suchas supple leather upholstery and exotic Dark Bamboo Wood trim.

In this latest-generation direct fuelinjection system, the piezo injectors are positioned very close to thespark plugs. They inject fuel at high pressure, with extreme precision,for very efﬁ cient combustion.Double-VANOS valve timing. BMW’s VANOS valve timing system“steplessly” varies the points in the combustion cycle when valves openand close. Double-VANOS refers to the fact that it operates on both theintake and exhaust camshafts. Electronically controlled in response toengine speed, temperature and load, it reduces emissions, and enhanceslow- to medium-speed torque, as well as fuel efﬁ ciency.Valvetronic. BMW’s Valvetronic valve control system improves engineresponse and reﬁ nement, while also helping to reduce fuel consumption.The system helps the engine “breathe” better by providing fully variablelift adjustment of the inlet valves. -speed Sport Automatic transmission.

Advanced driving technologies34 35Every BMW vehicle is engineered to provide the most thrilling and precise connection to the road.This is achieved through innovative axle technologies that increase stiffness front and rear, whilereducing weight through the use of lightweight aluminum components. The BMW X ’s near-perfect / weight distribution offers strikingly well-balanced road feel, with responsive characteristicsvirtually unmatched by any competitor on the road today.THE FEELING OF DRIVING THE BMW X IS SIMPLYINCREDIBLE. LIKE THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND IT.The formula sounds simple: a near-perfect / weight distribution between the front and rear axles. Yet few other makes have ever been able toduplicate this balance. BMW’s engineers also have conjured similar triumphs in neutral steering properties, directional stability and traction control.A lightweight multi-link integral rear suspension and wide track improve the responsiveness of the dampers, providing a more comfortable ride.Here are some more advanced technologies that combine to make the BMW X such a powerful presence on the road.Active Steering. This system delivers greaterdriving enjoyment with even more direct steer-ing when cornering, and greater agility on twistysections of road. At low and moderate speeds,it takes just two turns of the steering wheel tomove the front wheels from far left to far right.When the steering wheel is turned the sameamount at higher speeds, the steering ratiogradually changes, providing greater directionalstability and more comfortable cruising.Dynamic Performance Control. WherexDrive all-wheel drive can send available powerfrom the rear to the front, Dynamic PerformanceControl smoothly apportions available powerbetween the rear wheels. When cornering,Dynamic Performance Control sends morepower to the outside rear wheel, enabling thevehicle to “turn in” with less understeer. Mini-mizing understeer (the tendency to plowthrough a turn) lets you make tight turns andcorner with conﬁ dence.Adaptive Drive. The Adaptive Drive systemcombines the two active chassis controlsystems: Active Roll Stabilization (ARS) andDynamic Damping Control (DDC). In corners,the vehicle’s body tends to roll, affectinghandling characteristics. ARS twists speciallydesigned two-piece anti-roll bars to generatestronger resistance to body roll, keeping thevehicle more level and providing maximumstability and agility. DDC, on the other hand,instantly and continuously adjusts the shockabsorbers from the softest to the ﬁ rmestsettings. The result is exceptional ridingcomfort and ﬂ uid handling at all times, duringchanges in vehicle speed, load or road anddriving conditions.Hill Descent Control (HDC). This featurehelps the BMW X drive down steep hills with-out having to “ride the brake.” By pressing theHDC button, the system keeps the X ’s speedunder control automatically. -speed Sport Automatic transmission.This transmission adjusts to your style – fromcomfortable cruising to very dynamic driving. Tochange gears, you can use the selector lever orsteering wheel-mounted gear shift paddles. InSport mode, modiﬁ ed clutch settings allow veryquick adjustments in engine speed, for minimalshift times. The close spacing of the eight gearsoptimizes acceleration, while also maximizingefﬁ ciency and comfortable shifting.xDrive. Even when driving on wet roads, overslippery leaves, snow and ice – regardless ofthe road surface quality – the xDrive intelligentall-wheel-drive system and Dynamic StabilityControl (DSC) give you road-gripping stabilityand outstanding traction. xDrive reacts immedi-ately upon detecting over- or understeer, andemploys an electronically controlled multi-plateclutch to redistribute drivepower between axlesin just fractions of a second.Get the latest information on BMW standard and optional features, packages and technical speciﬁ cations.Visit bmwusa.com, select the BMW model of your choice, and click on “Features & Specs.”
HIGH-TECH BODYGUARDS:ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SAFETY FEATURES.The X is equipped with BMW’s full range of state-of-the-art active and passive safety technologies. Active safety features, such as Xenon AdaptiveHeadlights, powerful engines and large brakes, help you see and respond to potentially dangerous situations. Should an accident prove unavoidable,passive safety features, such as airbags and an extremely stiff body, are designed to help protect you and your passengers. After a severe impact,a host of features spring into action: the doors automatically unlock, headlights and taillights ﬂ ash, the starter cable is disconnected from the batteryand the fuel supply is cut off. Should any airbags deploy, BMW Assist™ response specialists are automatically alerted and notiﬁ ed of your location.Safety features36 37Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). This system provides remarkabletenacity on slippery road surfaces. If it senses over- or understeer, itmodulates engine power and can apply brakes individually to help keepthe vehicle under control and going in the intended direction. Start-offAssistant, a feature of DSC, prevents the vehicle from rolling backwardon a hill for . seconds after taking your foot off the brake. The systemalso includes Brake Fade Compensation, which lets you use the sameamount of pedal force, even when the brakes are heated; Brake Stand-by,which pre-tenses the brakes for quicker action if you suddenly removeyour foot from the accelerator pedal; and Brake Drying, which periodicallybrings the brake pads into contact with the rotors to eliminate accumu-lated moisture when it rains.Airbags. Six airbags are designed to deploy only as needed in the eventof a collision: one front- and side-impact airbag each for the driver andfront passenger, and Head Protection System (HPS) airbags at the sidesof the front and rear cabin to help protect all occupants.Active Head Restraints. Mounted in the front seats, they reducethe risk of whiplash or neck/head/spine injury.

Only athigher impact speeds do structural supports begin to deform, dissipatingimpact energy to help protect occupants.Active Steering. This system adjusts both steering ratio and steeringforce in relation to driving speed. At low to medium speeds, a small turnof the steering wheel translates into a big turn of the front wheels. Youenjoy more agility in city driving, quicker turns on twisting roads, andeasier parking maneuvers. At higher speeds, a larger turn of the steeringwheel is needed to turn the front wheels, resulting in greater straight-linestability.Extremely rigid body.
