BMW xDrive.

The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring outstanding traction at all times.
With xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the new BMW X6 remains directionally stable and on track. Split-second response times allow xDrive to distribute drive power flexibly between the two axles for optimum grip. In this way, xDrive combines the advantages of all-wheel drive, traction, directional stability and safety with classic BMW agility.

The chassis is specially tailored to the new BMW X6 and impresses with excellent road-holding, perfect handling and outstanding agility. At the same time, top-class comfort is guaranteed at all times. With its Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes, Dynamic Damper Control enables driving characteristics to be individually adjusted. The wide track and five-arm rear axle of the new BMW X6 allow bends to be taken at high speed with minimum body roll.

Dynamic Damper Control adapts the damper characteristics to suit the individual driving situation, ensures an exceptionally smooth ride and boosts driving dynamics. Along with the standard Comfort setting, which minimises disruptive vehicle movements, two other programmes are available. They are the Sport and Sport+ modes. They automatically provide the vehicle with tighter shock absorber settings and guarantee even sportier driving fun.

The Active Steering offers a new dimension of steering comfort with precision, agility and comfort in every driving situation. At low speeds, such as while urban driving, parking or driving round sharp bends – Active Steering increases the steering angle.
The driver can precisely manoeuvre the vehicle with just a slight turn of the wheel, instead of having to steer with difficulty. This noticeably improves the agility of the new BMW X6 and makes parking easier.

For greater control in the upper speed range (from approx. 120 to 140 km/h, depending on the model and calibration), Active Steering has a more indirect effect on the steering. As a result, the Active Steering reduces the degree to which the wheels are turned. The advantage is that by being able to use larger turns of the steering wheel, the driver can control the wheels more accurately, resulting in increased stability and comfort.

Active Steering also intervenes to support the driver in the event of critical situations such as oversteer or braking on different road surfaces by dampening the yaw movements, for example, with lightning fast reaction time.

Because the Active Steering is a supplementary system with a hydraulic basis and does not disturb the direct connection between the driver and the wheels, the manoeuvrability of the new BMW X6 remains fully preserved even if the system breaks down. When the safety circuit in the adjustment mechanism detects any errors, a pin immediately blocks the Active Steering and returns control to the driver.
