1. Exterior BMW X6 2020 cars

Exterior styling is considered by many experts to be the most distinctive feature of the BMW X6 right from the first generation. If Mercedes is a pioneer in the segment of coupe sedans with the CLS-class, then BMW can be considered a leader in the language of hybrid coupe SUV design. So, the overall design of the X6 from the first generation to the present is not too different.

However, the German automaker is still improving the dimensions of the new X6. 2020 BMW X6 is increased by 26 mm in length, 15 mm in width, 42 mm in wheelbase compared to its predecessor. The front wheel width has also been increased by 44 mm and the car height has been reduced by 6 mm. These two parameters help the car look shorter and wider, thereby bringing a sporty and aggressive look to the car.

Besides the size, the design of the X6 also becomes stronger, firmer and sportier to match the modern aesthetic trend. On the front, the BMW kidney grille is now capable of striking light with a larger size, combined with angular “angel eye” lights cluster to create a strong impression but not equally shrewd for the car.

Large grille details are also one of the most talked-about topics on the new generation BMW. Although there are many conflicting opinions, this grille cluster is still considered by many experts to be quite suitable for the strong overall characteristics of multi-purpose vehicles that are already “bulky” as the X6.

The most prominent feature in the side of the car is the seductive claw design that has become the brand of X6. The area is also accented by embossed ribs connecting the two angular wheel cavities. The new 5-spoke dual spoke wheels with an optional maximum diameter of up to 22 inches also contribute to the unique look of the X6 2020.

At the back, the familiar L-shaped taillight has been replaced by a longer and slender LED cluster. The number plate area on the luggage compartment door in the previous generation has now been moved near the rear bumper. The bold cutting lines and chrome exhaust pipes make the car more powerful and the rear bumper design extends to the sides of the body.

As a luxury multi-purpose vehicle of BMW, the interior of the X6 is also carefully polished to give the impression of luxury and class. The new dashboard with expanded design on both sides combined with the air vents and control buttons arranged horizontally makes the center area of ​​the car feel extremely spacious. The main highlight in this area is the high-resolution 12.3-inch entertainment screen that makes it easier and more convenient to control and arrange other systems.

Interior lights, automatic 4-zone automatic climate control with heating and front row massage are also standard equipment. Panoramic sunroof panoramic panoramic roof on the new X6 is up to 83% larger than its predecessor, promising to bring a sense of airiness to the interior compartment which is occupied part of the space due to the “clawing” design. In addition, if customers accept to spend more money, BMW also offers the option of Panorama Sky Lounge to help create 15,000 stars to illuminate the ceiling, similar to the “star sky” option on luxury Rolls models. -Royce.

In terms of driver assistance, the new X6 also has the most updated version of the iDrive infotainment system, including a 12.3-inch dual screen right behind the wheel called BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional, in which, a The screen is used to display the measurement parameters that replace the traditional clock, the other screen will handle the functions controlled by iDrive.

3. Operating and safety BMW X6 2020 cars

Although built on the basis of the BMW X5, the X6 also owns many differences in the powertrain. Specifically, the BMW X6 2020 has a sDrive40i rear-wheel drive version, using the 335 horsepower 3.0L I6 engine block. The most advanced X6 M50i will use 4.4L twinturbo twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 523 horsepower and can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds. All versions use 8-speed automatic transmission. As announced by BMW, when using summer tires, X6 will have a maximum speed of 250 km / h, and 210 km / h if not using this type of tire.

In addition, BMW also provides customers with the optional package Offroad Package with the ability to lock the rear differential, different terrain driving modes. Active air suspension is also featured on the BMW coupe SUV.

4. General evaluation BMW X6 2020 cars

With a somewhat expensive price (from $ 65,000 to more than $ 100,000 depending on equipment), the X6 is still an extremely valuable model. The hybrid, strong but seductive coupe hybrid SUV design is the most obvious characteristic and advantage of X6 compared to other SUVs in the segment. From that foundation, the Bavarian automaker has upgraded the X6 with a sharp design, a pit, a luxurious interior compartment filled with technology and improved performance, thereby continuing to affirm its position. in the fierce luxury SUV segment.


Review of Jaguar XF 2019 cars

In the mid-size luxury sedan segment, most customers often refer to the German trio of luxury cars are Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Lexus GS, and they often forget one. The name comes from England – Jaguar XF.

This is a second-generation model of the XF with upgrades in both appearance and equipment, not only increasing the appeal to those who “trot” the jaguar mascot, but also helps the Jaguar sedan lineup. more sophisticated with XE and XJ.

The official selling price in Vietnam for the current XF has not been announced exactly, only know that besides the Prestige Si4 version uses a 2.0-hp turbocharged 2.0 engine and the rear-wheel drive system appears in the review. this time.

Exterior

First of all, considering the dimensions, the 2019 Jaguar XF has a total length of Length x Width x Height of 4,954 x 1,987 x 1,457 (mm), a wheelbase of 2,960 (mm) and a minimum ground clearance at full load of 116 (mm). These numbers are enough for XF to overtake the E-Class, BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Lexus GS to become the largest vehicle model in the current segment.

Taking a closer look at the look of XF 2019, Jaguar brings a few noticeable changes in the front and rear light assemblies, combined with decorative details to create a strong, youthful but still full overall. elegant and attractive.

The appearance of the XF 2019 is clearly masculine but still shows some majesty and elegance in Jaguar’s very own “nobility”. Accompanied by a honeycomb grille with chrome-plated edges, the front bumper as well as the sharp embossed ribs on the cap, the two air intakes below are expanded more than before and the two additional bright metal bars ball.

The focus cannot be ignored is Jaguar’s modern lighting system for the new generation XF. “Eyes” guide the driver equipped with exclusive Jaguar LED Technology with headlights / headlights and daytime running lights “J Blade” completely made up of LED bulbs.

In addition to the ability to illuminate and identify clearly and beautifully, the features that the British automaker integrates inside also have auto on / off, automatically adjust the projection angle when driving with the wash lamp full of utilities…

From the side, we can see the body lines that have been meticulously elaborated by Jaguar to every detail, from the embossing from the nose of the car that stretches along the body to the tail of the windshield, the hood clawing backwards. as in sports coupes, to the chrome-framed glass door frames and the B-pillar made of high-grade glass, instead of just painted black but rivals.

At the rear of the car, Jaguar XF 2019 has a harmonious overall when the layout towards the balance and the jaguar and the shiny Jaguar lettering as the center. Inside the slender tail light clusters hugging from both sides of the body is a full-size LED array with a design inherited from the bendable F-Type coupe that is very beautiful, connecting these two light strips is a splint. luxury chrome.

In addition, although not too clear, the sporty appearance is still somewhat unsettling when Jaguar puts in an XF with a fish fin antenna, a slightly modified spoiler tail and a pair of dual exhaust pipes surrounded by the part. Dark plastic rear bumper.

Furniture

Going back a bit with the dimensions, compared to its predecessor, the XF 2019 has a shorter and shorter body, but in exchange for the two-axis distance now increased by 51mm to help the foot space up to 87mm same height as the ceiling for the front row is 991mm, for the rear seats is the same 970mm.

And not just an abundance of space, Jaguar of course will make even the most demanding customer to be satisfied with the different class of Riva Hoop design style, blended with high interior materials. grades include Gloss Figured Ebony wood and Dark Hex alloy. In addition, the layout of the interior is full of science combined with a list of convenient features “take care of” to help passengers always comfortable when traveling with XF.

The two rows of seats are covered with soft leather, the seat cushions, backrest and headrest are meticulously calculated to give the user the best care, sitting posture is always comfortable and relaxing. The two front seats feature eight-way power adjustment and four backrest cushioning options, while the driver’s seat adds three additional location memory, which will help family members easily get their favorite sitting position. like when taking turns controlling XF.

The rear seats are spacious enough for all three members, legroom and ceiling space is very abundant even for people as tall as 1m80, but the middle seating position should be better for children when The drivetrain and side air vents are a bit overwhelmed. In return, Jaguar has been observant when equipped with three seat heating levels and an electric sunscreen in the rear glass door, providing true privacy and coziness for passengers.

Refinement and flexibility are the adjectives I have for the tabloid panel of the new generation XF, despite its driver-oriented design, the upper line “moving” is very elegant. Combined with that is the center console area arranged “in a straight line”, immediately reaching both the gear lever and the armrest between the two front seats. These two factors make the cabin both youthful and modern, while expressing elegance and nobility.

The steering wheel at XF 2019 is still Jaguar’s familiar, simple, three-spoke design. You will certainly love the feel of touching the smooth skin surface as well as the use of neatly organized function buttons at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock. And as an incentive for the driver to use two gearshift paddles, Jaguar arranges at the center of the steering wheel a powerful newspaper, as I am a speed lover, these details really ” suggestive ”and full of appeal.

The dashboard is sporting a sporty version of the XF Prestige 2.0 Si4, with two velocity clusters and 3D-rimmed chrome trim ring, alternating with a multi-information screen and a strong blue tone. A simple yet effective design not only makes the cabin more beautiful, but also makes it easy and intuitive to keep track of parameters.

And if you still want to drive with the XF to be more exciting and truly classy, ​​Jaguar offers a 12.3-inch display called Virtual Instrument that is extremely sharp. The equipment is included in the InControl Touch Pro infotainment system package and customers can choose it, similar to the speed / gearshift / navigation display on the Head-up Display steering glass.

Inside the car door, the British automaker uses a range of high-quality materials, from dark painted wood panels, expensive carbon coating, chrome-plated door switches to leather and stitching completely floating pedestals. hands, in addition to four glass doors are equipped with one-touch electric adjustment. These equipment not only make the cabin more luxurious, but also make passengers always feel comfortable and comfortable with XF.

Convenient

Taking on the role of bringing fresh air and comfort throughout the journey of the passengers is an independent two-zone automatic air conditioning system and comes with air cavity for the rear seats. The point seems to be nothing too different and outstanding for a luxury car, but Jaguar often brings details that are not in the spec sheet and difficult to measure with money.

As mentioned above, Jaguar offers two options for customers: InControl Touch or InControl Touch Pro. The first option, with an 8-inch touch screen and front function buttons, can easily control all entertainment features or the air-conditioning system. The list of features includes satellite navigation, hands-free calling, Bluetooth / USB / AUX / iPod / Radio connectivity, Internet access via Wi-fi transmitter, 13 Maridian speakers of 380 Watt. All will help the driver and the passengers to entertain and enjoy their trip in the best way.

More advanced, XF will own 10.2-inch touch screen with the ability to display 3D maps or music storage up to 10Gb, most notably Maridian 17 speakers with capacity of 825 Watt “quality” ”From Jaguar’s optional upgrade package. This will be the perfect choice for technology believers or those who are demanding, want to experience sound at the highest standard on an original car.

Other facilities not to mention in the XF 2019 include a smart key along with a button to start and open / lock the door with one touch for convenient access to the vehicle; Integrated cruise control system limits the speed to support the driver more leisurely and safe; One-touch electric sunroof makes the cabin more airy; The optional 10-color decorative lighting system brings elegance and distinct class to the interior.

Operation – Safety

According to information from genuine Jaguar importer, Vietnamese customers will be able to “hold the reins” of XF 2019 through two dynamic systems as follows:

2.0L Si4 turbocharged petrol engine, 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All produce 200 horsepower and reach maximum torque of 300 Nm allows the car to reach a maximum speed of 234 km / h, the ability to accelerate from 0 -100 km / h in 7.1 seconds. Combined fuel consumption of 7.5L / 100km.

Jaguar XF is also equipped with 4 driving modes, including Normal (normal), Eco (Eco), Winter (winter, foggy, smooth) and Dynamic (sport). In addition, XF has the ability to operate flexibly thanks to the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) technology that automatically recognizes slippery and less frictional roads such as rain or crushed stone, from It warns and maintains itself at a speed of 3.6 to 36 km / h.

Extra powerful support for strength and superior operating technologies, Jaguar is also a pioneer in making the XF completely with an aluminum alloy chassis, which helps reduce weight but still ensure stability as well as safety. for passengers. In addition, the British car company also arranged the bars in the engine compartment, minimizing vibration affecting the cabin even when the car starts to start.

General assessment

It can be seen, Jaguar XF 2019 is not for those who accept a “luxury luxury car”, easily caught, recognized and quickly glided on the street. The sedan with the jaguar logo has an irresistible appeal to the opposite person, not only for its elegant English-style appearance but also for the strong internal force hidden under the capo.
