The BMW X6.

The striking design of the BMW X6 is truly unmistakable. In the end, one factor above all else is absolutely crucial: What does driving this powerhouse actually feel like? The chassis of the BMW X6 sets new standards. BMW xDrive guarantees outstanding traction – whatever the weather, whatever the road surface. This is accompanied by excellent directional stability and an agility that instantly enthralls. Options include adaptive suspension packages and Active Steering – for even more driving pleasure.

BMW xDrive.

The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system adapts to even the most challenging road surface conditions to offer outstanding traction at all times. With xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the BMW X6 remains directionally stable and on track. Split-second response times allow xDrive to distribute drive power flexibly between the two axles for optimum grip. In this way, xDrive combines the advantages of four-wheel drive – traction, directional stability and safety – with classic BMW agility.

Active Steering.

The new dimension of steering comfort − the Active Steering offers precision, agility and comfort in every driving situation.
At low speeds – when urban driving, parking or driving round sharp bends – Active Steering increases the steering angle. The driver can precisely manoeuvre the vehicle with just a slight turn of the wheel, instead of having to steer arduously. This noticeably improves the agility of the BMW X6 and makes parking easier.
For greater control in the upper speed range Active Steering has a more indirect effect on the steering. As a result, the Active Steering reduces the degree to which the wheels are turned. The advantage: by being able to use larger turns of the steering wheel, the driver can control the wheels more accurately, resulting in increased stability and comfort.
Active Steering also intervenes to support the driver in the event of critical situations such as oversteer or braking on an unfamiliar road surface by dampening the yaw movements with lightning fast reaction time.
Because the Active Steering is a supplementary system with a electro-hydraulic basis and does not disturb the direct connection between the driver and the wheels, the manoeuvrability of the BMW X6 remains fully preserved even if the system breaks down. When the safety circuit in the adjustment mechanism detects any errors, a pin immediately blocks the Active Steering and returns control to the driver.
