It unites apparent opposites, such as size with agility and sportiness with elegance. Its a sports car that also feels at home when away from the road. That is why, we have created a separate vehicle category for the BMW X6 the Sports Activity Coupe. These three words encompass everything that makes the BMW X6 so special and this is apparent at first sight. And there is another certainty. The new BMW X6 will definitely attract attention, wherever it goes."
