Expert Quotes:

From the driver's seat, the X6 is the same truck as the X5 - so you have a great stereo, comfortable seats, and iDrive.
Automobile Magazine

We were impressed by the system here because it noticed a new traffic incident while we were already driving along its programmed route.
Cnet

Inside, a power-flow meter in the main infotainment screen tells you where all the juice is going, and a small gauge in the lower part of the tach shows battery status, the amount of electric boost, and brake-energy recuperation.
Car and Driver

Aside from its twin-turbo V8, the xDrive50i adds 14-way "multicontour" front seats, BMW Assist emergency telematics, Bluetooth and a navigation system with voice controls and real-time traffic. These extra items are available as options on the 35i.
Edmunds

The severe dashboard angles and technology-laden center console — which features a joystick-style gear selector for the automatic transmission and the iDrive control knob — might be intimidating to some drivers

BMW is constantly moving forward with equipment and features, and the 2012 X6 is no different, offering a strong base specification that's upgradeable with many of the latest innovations.

Every X6 comes standard with 10-way adjustable power seats for driver and front passenger; HD Radio; wood-grain trim; automatic front climate control; push-button start/stop; power liftgate; front and rear parking sensors; a 10-spearker audio system with two subwoofers; dynamic cruise control; and more.

Optional extras are numerous, and can quickly add to the bottom line, but include some attractive high-tech features, such as: four-zone automatic climate control; real-time traffic; iDrive-based infotainment and navigation with BMW Apps support; Bluetooth connectivity; iPod and USB connections; a premium hi-fi audio system; six-disc DVD/CD changer; and more.

While the iDrive system has been the subject of much criticism in the past, the latest generation is more intuitive and readily accessible--but it's still complex.

Conclusion

The 2012 BMW X6 offers a host of standard features, and even more in the way of upgrades--but beware the quickly ballooning price when ticking all of those boxes.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
