2017 BMW X6: Coupe Style That’s Impressive
There is a vehicle that offers you limited off road capabilities, a small amount of cargo and passenger space, and lacks sporty style but is still one of our favorites to drive on the road. This vehicle is the BMW X6 and it is a baffling model to be sure. This SUV has a tall ride height, but looks like a car that’s been lifted, much like the Subaru Outback. It does offer you the impressive AWD and sleek fastback style that makes it a vehicle you can enjoy driving on any road, and with the BMW badge at the front, you know the drive will be a majority of the appeal of this SUV.
When you want something that’s unique in its appearance and handling this is the vehicle for you. There are many options for you to choose from for the X6 which will make it easy for you to have this SUV set up the way you want it to be. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is a typical SUV and that the “6” means its larger and more spacious than the X5; it’s not and the X6 is built to give the driving fun you want and the control of the AWD you need.
For 2017 there are some changes to the X6 to give you more of what you want. This vehicle has an updated navigation system to make use of the iDrive 5.0 and adds the Anthracite headliner as part of the standard package.

The X6 is a vehicle that looks great and certainly will garner the attention you receive when you choose this as your regular drive of choice for the roads in your area.
Some of the standout features of this vehicle include the infotainment screen and the service you receive. The screen is a full 10.2 inches in size and looks great with the crystal clear appearance. You’ll be amazed at how clear and easy it is to enjoy the drive when you can see the directions on the screen without any issue at all. The service offered by BMW gives you four years or 50,000 miles of scheduled maintenance included on every model of the X6. This makes it easy to start your ownership the right way and have the service you need.
