ABS and ESC standard. Front side and head protection air bags standard. FCW, AEB, and BSW standard from 2019.
The X6 is based on the X5 SUV. It seats only four and is a coupe-like SUV. A turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine powers most versions. A 4.4-liter V8 is also offered. The standard 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. Styling severely hurts rear visibility and cabin access. A hybrid version and a high-performance M model are also available.
