Although BMW is known for engineering excellence, the company's cars always were firmly rooted in reality. Not so with the X6 M. Taking the useless body styling of the standard X6, BMW adds M gear to make it a performance monster.
The BMW X6 M is a strangely shaped beast with excessive power. It has the same running gear as the X5 M, a vehicle with more practical body styling.
BMW's bizarre-shaped shifter controls a six-speed automatic transmission with sport and manual settings. In sport, the transmission does an excellent job of finding the right gear for performance driving.
