With their remarkable and sporty agility and handling characteristics, the BMW X5 and BMW X6 offer a unique experience that is typical of BMW performance and driving pleasure. Impressive acceleration and responsive high-revving engines, the eight-speed automatic transmission and the intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system enhance the dynamic driving experience. These features not only optimise agility and driving comfort, they also ensure excellent traction along with superb handling and stability under the most challenging weather and road conditions.

What's more, despite their high-performance characteristics, these models make no compromises when it comes to efficiency. The BMW X5 xDrive30d and BMW X6 xDrive30d models are truly impressive when equipped with the 180 kW/245 hp inline six-cylinder diesel engine, giving each of them an EU test cycle average fuel consumption rating of 7.4 litres and a CO2 rating of 195 grams per kilometre.

These outstanding consumption and emission figures can be enhanced further with an additional innovative emission control technology. In the autumn of 2011, the BMW X5 xDrive30d will also be available with BMW BluePerformance technology to further reduce the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx). This is possible with the standard diesel particulate filter used in conjunction with the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and the AdBlue-system. Thus vehicles equipped with this technology already meet the requirements of the EU6 emission standard that takes effect in 2014. The optimized emission technology does not impact the performance of the BMW X5 xDrive30d, and its average fuel consumption is a respectable 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres (CO2 emission: 198 g/km).
