X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

2008 X6 3.5L Gas Mileage vs 2009 X6 5.0L Gas Mileage

Hey guys, sorry I'm new to these forums. I've tried searching for this answer but nothing really came up//

I was looking at a 2008 x6 3.5L last week couldn't agree on the price but I see a 2009 x6 5.0L, for sale...

I was wondering how the gas mileage on these things are, I know it depends on how you drive etc but what would you guys say?

The guy who I am buying the car says he gets around 16L/100KM and he pays about 120 per tank? but don't know how long it lasts...

Usually I would be driving in the City because I live in Vancouver BC.

Also let me know which one u guys would probably get. Thanks

The 50 is amazing I love mine.

Gas mileage is ok, it really is directly related to how heavy footed you are. In mostly city driving and trying to be lighter footed, I am getting about 15mpg. On a recent hwy drive I got nearly 22.
