The X6 is not what you'd call cheap, but like most BMWs, you'll get a fair chunk of your money back come resale time. BMW's Efficient Dynamics system, which includes the latest high-pressure fuel-injection system and brake regeneration (which recharges the battery by using energy created when braking), help reduce emissions and boost fuel economy. The results give the X6 a significant running-cost advantage over similar premium cars from the likes of Porsche and Range Rover.
BMW X6 quality & reliability
Top-notch materials are precision assembled to give the X6 an air of luxury that few, if any, manufacturers can better. Equally, BMWs are generally mechanically sound, although electrical glitches aren't unknown. BMW claims the X6's complex four-wheel-drive system will be robust, and many of the other components are well proven in other models.
BMW X6 safety & security
The X6 is packed with the latest electronic driver's aids and comes with front, side and curtain airbags. The four-wheel-drive system also provides superb traction and masses of grip, so you should never be caught out by slippery conditions. Its desirability will no doubt make the X6 a prime target for criminals, but BMWs have an excellent reputation for thwarting thieves.
