Captivating Interiors

Inside, you'll find two comfortable rows of seating inside the latest BMW X6 while the X7 provides an additional third row of seating.

These include power front sport seats with two-way power side bolsters and driver positioning memory, multi-zone climate control, and Comfort Access keyless entry with hands-free trunk/lid opening.

Paramount Safety For Every Journey

Automotive safety is always important, but especially when negotiating the unpredictable nature of Southern California traffic. That's why these top-of-the-line BMW SAVs are equipped with some of the world's most advanced safety technology. Standard Icon Adaptive Full LED Headlights lead the way on the new BMW X6 and X7 while automatic high beams provide outstanding visibility without blinding oncoming traffic, and this is just the beginning. Both models are also equipped standard with the impressive Active Driving Assistant that includes Active Blind Spot Detection, Frontal Collision Warning, and even Speed Limit Info, among other technology, to help you avoid trouble on the road.

World-Renowned Performance

When you consider a Sport Activity Vehicle like these, you may not think first about their performance. But these are BMW models that we're talking about here, so you can expect to take the wheel of an Ultimate Driving Machine no matter which model you test drive. The new 2022 BMW X6 kicks things off with a 3.0-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine making 335 horsepower. This powertrain also includes eBoost 48V mild hybrid technology. Both models are also equipped standard with a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes that you can enjoy through the standard paddle shifters. Depending on your road, select between SPORT, COMFORT, and ECO PRO driving modes. As they share the same powertrain, you may not notice much difference in how each of these BMW SAVs perform. Of course, that's something you should explore more closely from behind the wheel during a test dive.
