BMW's original slant-back crossover (or sport activity vehicle, as the company calls it) returns for 2016 with no major changes.
There are three models built around different turbocharged engines: the 35i xDrive uses a 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder making 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque; the 50i xDrive gets a 4.4L V8 that makes 445 hp and 479 lb-ft, and the X6M is a high-performance model that uses the same V8 tuned for 567 hp and 553 lb-ft.
All-wheel drive is standard, as is an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel consumption ratings are 13.0/8.9 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 35i; 16.1/10.9 for the 50i; and 16.6/12.1 for the X6M.
Prices start at $69,400 for 35i models, and top out at the X6M's $105,900.
Standard kit in 35i trim includes 20-inch wheels, steerable Xenon automatic headlights, adaptive brake lights, fog lights, heated, auto-dimming, and power-folding side mirrors and windshield washer jets, front and rear park assist, backup camera, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated steering wheel and front seats, power-adjustable tilt-and-telescopic steering, power tailgate, 10-way power-adjustable front seats with driver memory, Dakota leather seat upholstery, dual-zone automatic.
