BMW X6 M Plus Sport
BMW X6 Rent Dubai. The X6’s (and to a lesser extent the X5’s) defining characteristic has always been the physics-defying way it drives. Despite tipping the scales at a portly 2,185kg, the X6 manages to weave its way through corners with precious little body roll and masses of grip – especially in the incredible (and frankly bonkers) X6 M.
The steering could do with a little more feel, but there’s nothing wrong with the speed in which front-end reacts to your inputs. Four driving modes are available – Eco Pro, Comfort, Sport and Sport+ – that sharpen up the powertrain and chassis, while also firming up the dampers if you option Adaptive M suspension. It’s standard on M Sport models, the M50d and the X6 M.
If you do opt for the optional dampers, the ride can get a bit unsettled over bumps in Sport and Sport+ modes, but diving into the menus and keeping the suspension in its softest setting cures that, while still retaining superb body control.

There’s a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines – including a 568bhp 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 in the X6 M and a 376bhp 3.0-litre tri-turbo in the X6 M50d – but by far the biggest seller will be the 254bhp 3.0-litre diesel in the xDrive30d.
The X6 M has incredible performance for such a large car – 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds – with handling to match, making it supercar fast on the road and surprisingly capable given its size and weight on a track. The trade off is a slight loss in comfort – even in the softest suspension mode. Unfortunately, that’s the trade off for the immense straight line speed.
