Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The X6’s interior is straight out of the BMW book of modern interior design and is screwed together with impressive solidity and precision. It’s functional, comfortable and attractive, too. Electrically adjustable sports seats with driver memory provide good long-distance comfort, while the steering wheel offers a large range of movement to help you find the ideal driving position. 

BMW’s infotainment system leads the way in the class for both usability and number of features. It can be operated through either its 12.3in touchscreen or a more intuitive rotary dial controller on the centre console, making it far easier to use on the move than the one in the  Audi Q8, which is touchscreen-only. The optional ‘gesture control’ feature that comes as part of the Technology Pack (physical gestures made near the infotainment system will activate certain functions) provides a third method of control, although it's not particularly responsive.

There’s a crisp, clear 12.3in digital driver display in place of conventional analogue instruments, too. It's not as configurable as Audi’s equivalent Virtual Cockpit system, but it still looks smart and is intuitive to use.

Inevitably, the X6’s sloping roofline and raked rear windscreen result in a letterbox view out of the back of the car, but big door mirrors go some way to compensating for that. Front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera are standard across the range, and the car can even help with parking by controlling the steering for you. A 360-degree camera is on the options list.

Bright LED lights come as standard, as does high-beam assistance, which will automatically dip the headlights to avoid dazzling other road users.
