To make sure the tailgate of the BMW X6 never strikes a garage roof or other obstacle, the angle of opening can be set to one of two settings. When the tailgate is in the lower position, the two-stage gas damper lets you open it fully using the pull-and-release principle familiar from ball-point pens. With the “automatic tailgate operation” option, you can even set five stages in the iDrive menu – then open or close the tailgate from the comfort of the cockpit, just by pressing a button. This version also includes a safety feature in the motor to prevent jamming.
Head-Up Display in the BMW X6
An optional feature in the BMW X6, the Head-Up Display presents important information directly in the driver's viewing field. A unit in the dashboard projects the data onto the windscreen as a clear, easy-to-read image, adjusted for ambient light conditions, with a focal point just above the bonnet. The height of the display can even be adjusted so that information is always projected in the driver's optimal field of vision. Information can be read faster, and the driver's attention is never distracted from the road ahead.

The Controller puts cabin comfort features such as climate control and telephone right at your fingertips. Frequently used features can be assigned to one of the eight favourite buttons. The Control Display, optimally situated above the central console, informs and guides you with ease leaving your gaze, and your thoughts, free to focus on the pleasure of driving.
Headlights of BMW X6
Adaptive Headlights of the BMW X6 -All-round vision.
The BMW X6 shows every curve in the best light possible. Sensors in the optional Adaptive Headlights constantly monitor the car’s speed, yaw rate and steering angle, then calculate curve progressions accordingly. Both Xenon headlights then adjust electro-mechanically to match. When you turn left or right, the low-beam settings complement the Adaptive Headlights by activating an extra reflector in the inner fog-lights to light up the road ahead. Whatever the driving situation, the result is an impressively better lit road surface.
