2009 BMW X6 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
Wanted to get up higher in traffic for visibility so went looking at crossovers and SUVs. Test drove the X5 and the X6. NO CONTEST. The X6 has sedan like handling characteristics and had better performance. There really IS a difference between the X5's 3.0i and the X6's 3.5i.
Beautiful interior, two tone nevada leather. Love the bluetooth feature, don't know how I got along without it. The Idrive was easy to master and helpful. Smooth and quiet on the road.
Fuel economy of course, but my 18 mpg average probably is because of my heavy right foot - had to set the speed limit warning chime because the X6 drives so smooth it is amazingly easy to be driving VERY fast and not notice!
