Excellent quality of finish and wide range of storage options.
Visibly and tangibly sophisticated, high-class surfaces make the interior of the BMW X6 a genuine experience to feel and behold at all times. Through their special quality designed for lasting strength and resistance, the interior surfaces also emphasise the superior robustness of the vehicle committed to offroad use whenever required.
The special surface grain on the instrument panel is formed by innovative IM (in-mould) coating. Optional leather finish on the instrument panel ensures a particularly exclusive effect in its touch and looks brought out by the use of high-quality leather and seams as well as smooth and gentle padding beneath the leather surface.
In its design the dashboard is reminiscent of a firm but resistant band swivelling from one side to the other. This dynamic design then continues within the door linings with their twin-section trimming, the glove compartment merging elegantly and unobtrusively into the surrounding surfaces. Locking automatically together with the doors, the glove compartment does not require a separate lock, the two-piece lid opening upwards and downwards to provide convenient access to the storage space fully illuminated inside.
The spacious storage box in the centre console opens and closes in the same way by means of a so-called butterfly lid. Further features on the centre console are the two extra-large cupholders complete with a lid on top serving also to hold even bottles firmly in position.
Two further large cupholders are provided in the rear console, together with an additional storage box. And spacious storage pockets in the door panels front and rear, finally, round off the wide range of storage facilities.

Lots of space, lots of customisation options.
Wide opening rear doors facilitate access to the two rear seats, and head-room also at the rear is unusually generous for a coupé: Seat height of 944 millimetres or 37.2" guarantees supreme comfort and convenience even for tall passengers.
Seen from the rear, the window graphics in the BMW X6 generate a feeling of forward-pushing openness and, as a result, a generous sensation of spaciousness and abundance.
A wide range of materials and colours highlighting the sporting character of the BMW X6 adds to the individual style and personality of this unique vehicle. The exterior paintwork, for example, comes in a choice of no less than ten colours, while five equipment variants, two interior colours and five trim options ensure a wide range of individual style and choice.
Trim bars in ash grain and flywheel aluminium have been created especially for BMW’s Sports Activity Coupé. And while the wood variant exudes a particular touch of discreet exclusivity, the sweeping polish on the aluminium version shows a clear and distinct reference to motorsport.
The passenger and luggage compartment on the BMW X6 are distinctly separated from one another in the usual style one would expect of a fully-fledged coupé. Offering 570 litres or almost 20 cu ft of storage space, the luggage compartment behind the rear seats of the BMW X6 is far larger than in a conventional coupé, allowing the driver and passengers, just as one example, to take along four full-size golf bags in the luggage compartment even with four people riding in the vehicle.
BMW’s new Sports Activity Coupé also boasts a firm, folding cover on top of the luggage compartment folding practically beneath the floor for convenient transportation of bulky objects. To increase the transport capacity available, finally, the rear-seat backrests may be tilted down in an asymmetric split, loading capacity being extended in this way to a most substantial 1,450 litres or 51 cu ft.
As an option, the BMW X6 is available with an automatic opening and closing function on the rear lid, the two-stage gas spring featured as standard allowing the driver to vary the final position of the tailgate when open. This helps to reduce the risk of damage, for example in an underground car park or garage with a low ceiling.

Looking at the seat covers, the customer has the choice of various high-quality cloth and leather variants as well as a new combination of alcantara/leather developed exclusively for the BMW X6. On this version the alcantara cover in the middle of the seats is combined with fine-grain Oregon leather at the sides.
The Lights Package is yet another option, LED units around the door handles and light bars in the door pockets providing a stylish and sophisticated ambience inside the car and facilitating use of the control elements housed in the door panels. A further important point is that the Lights Package also illuminates the area outside the car and comes with exit lights in the door linings.
