New BMW X6 xDrive50i offers cleaner, faster drive

BMW has announced the launch of the BMW X6 xDrive50i which will go on sale in November priced at £53,930 OTR.

Fans of speed will be keen to learn of its unique twin-turbocharged V8 engine, capable of propelling the vehicle from zero to 62mph in only 5.4 seconds

An electronically-limited top speed of 155mph means that the car will be no slouch on the UK motorways.

The BMW X6 xDrive50i is 1.8 seconds faster from zero to 62mph than the flagship Range Rover Sport and it’s also greener. The BMW’s CO2 emissions figure of 299g/km is 75g/km cleaner than the Range Rover and it is also 4.8mpg more fuel efficient.

The BMW X6 also comes out on top when compared to the Porsche Cayenne GTS which is 1.4 seconds slower from zero to 62mph, 2.3mpg less efficient and, at 332g/km, it is 33g/km more polluting.
