In Edmunds brake testing, an X6 xDrive35i came to a stop from 60 mph in a very short 111 feet.
Edmunds



Due to its luxury pricing and rather exclusive nature, the 2012 BMW X6 hasn't been crash tested by either the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).

The X6 is, however, based on the same core structure as the X5, which scores top marks of "good" in tests by the IIHS. While it can't be assured that the X6 would score equally well due to its slightly different shape, it's a strong indicator of the X6's crash-worthy design.

Standard safety equipment on the X6 includes front, side, and side-curtain airbags; stability and traction control (with M Dynamic Mode enhancements on the X6 M); hill-descent control; and anti-lock brakes.

Optional safety upgrades include a backup camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning system.

Conclusion

The 2012 BMW X6 hasn't been subjected to crash testing, but it comes with a strong complement of safety features and has BMW's engineering to back it up.

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.
