SAFETY | 9 out of 10
In Edmunds brake testing, an X6 xDrive35i came to a stop from 60 mph in a very short 111 feet.
Safety should be assured for X6 buyers. Though neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS have crash tested the X6, it's built on similar underpinnings to the X5, which scores top marks of "good" in all categories according to the IIHS.
The X6 also comes with a host of standard safety equipment, including a full complement of front, side, and curtain airbags, plus a range of stability and performance-tuned traction control. Optional upgrades like backup cameras and adaptive cruise control add to the protection.BMW stability control takes advantage of the 2011 X6's four-wheel-drive system through Dynamic Performance Control. The ability to send power to individual wheels lets the BMW X6 have more direct impact on safety than stability control alone can.
The 2011 BMW X6 hasn't been crash-tested yet, but it is chock-full of cutting-edge safety equipment.
