High Performance Car Insurance - New BMW X6 to be launched

New BMW X6 to be launched

New versions of the popular BMW X6 are to be launched by the manufacturer by the end of spring 2012, with the vehicle set to build on its strong performance since it entered the market just three years ago.

The company has stated that numerous improvements have been made to the X6 for 2012, with adaptive LED headlights just one of the new innovations being introduced for fans of the sports activity coupe.

Petrol and diesel versions are being delivered for lovers of luxury performance vehicles this year, with the BMW X6 xDrive50i capable of 407 bhp, while the BMW X6 xDrive30d achieves a maximum of 306 bhp.

This power is transferred in both models by the vehicle's standard 8-speed sports transmission, including shift paddles at the steering wheel, with the company's Dynamic Performance Control now offered as standard to ensure the intelligent all-wheel drive system xDrive delivers optimal performance for X6 drivers at all times.

Furthermore, Active Steering and Adaptive Drive technology ensures electronically controlled dampers and roll stabilisation make the ride as smooth as possible.

"With the market launch of the new BMW X6, the combination of supreme appearance, agile driving properties and hallmark brand efficiency so characteristic of the Sports Activity Coupe is raised to a new level," BMW stated.

British luxury vehicle manufacturer Jaguar also recently announced the launch of a new concept vehicle at the  New Delhi Auto Expo in India.

Both the Jaguar C-X75 and C-X16 were showcased at the event, with the C-X75 described as the "Jaguar of the future" with its swooping curves and sleek lines.

Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar global brand director, said: "The C-X75 is destined to be one of the world's most desirable, exclusive, efficient and advanced supercars.

"Reaction to the C-X16 coupe has been equally positive following its debut in Frankfurt."
