Some of you might remember the BMW leaked document in which the new X6 xDrive50i was being compared to the Porsche Cayenne GTS. At that time, many people believed that since it was a BMW leaked document, the numbers might not be as accurate as they want us to believe.
I inclined to believe these allegations, but in the same time, I knew that the leaked document was an internal memo that had no marketing purposes. A few months later, the fellow car lovers at AutoBild had the opportunity to put the BMW X6 xDrive50i head-to-head with the Porsche Cayenne GTS.
Before we show you their final results, let’s start with the ones from the BMW’s memo
|BMW X6 xDrive50i||Porsche Cayenne GTS||Range Rover Sport V8 – Supercharged|
|0-60 MPH||5.4 sec||6.1 sec||7.6 sec|
|Speed||155 MPH||157 MPH||140 MPH|
|Fuel Consumption||18.17 MPG||15.54 MPG||14.76 MPG|
|CO2 Emission||299 g/km||361 g/km||374 g/km|
|Dimmensions||192.15/76.35/66.58 in||189.04/75.96/66.94 in||188.50/78.07/71.33 in|
|Weight||4983 lbs||5060 lbs||5786 lbs|
So, 0-100km/h, 5.4 for the X6 and 6.1 for the Cayenne GTS.
Now, let’s see what the AutoBild folks have to say:
1. 8.54,4 min (max. 240,9 km/h) – X6 (automatic)
2. 9.01,9 min (max. 228,1 km/h) – Cayenne GTS (manual)
1. 2378 kg – X6
2. 2410 kg – Cayenne GTS
Acceleration 0-100 km/h:
1. 5,7 s – X6
2. 6,7 s – Cayenne GTS
1. 263 km/h – Cayenne GTS
2. 252 km/h – X6 (limited)
Braking 100-0 km/h (warm):
1. 37,4 m – Cayenne GTS
2. 37,7 m – X6
1. 73 800 € – X6
2. 78 034 € – Cayenne GTS
Besides being faster from 0-100km/h, the BMW X6 xDrive50i was 7 seconds faster on the Nurburgring lap as well.
With a lower price, better fuel consumption and free 4-year maintenance, the X6 is a better buy. Sorry guys, as much as I like Porsche, the X6 takes the win this time.
