The 2009 BMW X6 is a 2-door, 4-passenger crossover that BMW would prefer you call a Sports Activity Coupe. New options for 2009 include an automatic tailgate and heated rear seats. The BMW X6 provides two engine choices with its 3.0L 300-hp twin turbocharged 6-cyl or the larger 4.4L 400-hp twin turbocharged V8. Both variations of the X6 include xDrive AWD and the 6-speed sport automatic transmission standard. The BMW X6 standard features include driver and passenger front, side, and rear airbags, front dual zone climate control, keyless entry and heated front seats. Available options for the 2009 BMW X6 include 4-zone automatic climate control, privacy glass, navigation system, front ventilated seats, an iPod and USB adapter, a premium hi-fi system, 6-disc DVD changer, a rear view camera, Anthracite headliner, real time traffic information system, retractable headlight washers, rear seat entertainment and much more. The 2009 BMW X6 is closer to a large sports coupe than it is to a SUV thanks to the sporty suspension, brakes, tires and wheels, in addition to those two wonderful engine options. Gas mileage is 15/20 mpg for the I6 and 13/18 mpg for the V8.Read more Read less
The 2009 BMW X6 is mostly unchanged from its introduction last year. The Sport activity package has been dropped.
Attractive, edgy styling; typical BMW athleticism; excellent turbocharged power from either I6 or V8 engine; cargo space; standard electronic all-wheel drive.
BMW has a well-deserved reputation for building some of the best cars in the world, and the 2009 X6 looks to further that track record. For those looking for the sports car performance of a coupe but the versatility of a small SUV, the X6 is the ticket. With a choice of either I6 or V8 power (both twin-turbocharged), sport-tuned suspension, increased clearance and cargo room, and the safety and security of BMW's advanced xDrive all-wheel drive system, the X6 defines a market segment BMW dubs the Sports Activity Coupe.
