Based on the X5 SUV, the X6 features standard all-wheel drive.
BMW calls this a sports activity coupe because it seats only four and is taller than traditional coupes.
A turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine powers most versions.
A 4.4-liter V8 is also offered.
The all-wheel-drive system can vary the torque from side to side to minimize understeer, similar to the system in the Acura MDX and RDX.
