The X6’s optional pre-crash front seatbelts will tighten automatically in the event the vehicle detects an impending crash, improving protection against injury significantly. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer pre-crash pretensioners.

The X6 has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The BMW X6 has Daytime Running Lights to help keep it more visible under all conditions. Canadian government studies show that driving with lights during the day reduces accidents by 11% by making vehicles more conspicuous. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer Daytime Running Lights.

A passive infrared night vision system optional on the X6 helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a night vision system.

Both the X6 and the Range Rover Evoque have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, front and rear parking sensors, available all wheel drive, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and driver alert monitors.

There are over 2 times as many BMW dealers as there are Land Rover dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the X6’s warranty.

For better traction, the X6 has larger standard tires than the Range Rover Evoque (255/50R19 vs. 235/55R19). The X6’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Range Rover Evoque (F:275/40R20 & R:315/35R20 vs. 245/45R20).

The X6’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Range Rover Evoque’s standard 60 series tires. The X6’s optional 275/40R20 front and 315/35R20 rear tires have a lower 40 series front and 35 series rear profile than the Range Rover Evoque’s optional 45 series tires.

The X6 offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Land Rover doesn’t offer an active suspension on the Range Rover Evoque.

The X6 offers an optional automatic rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover Evoque doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the X6’s wheelbase is 10.7 inches longer than on the Range Rover Evoque (115.5 inches vs. 104.8 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the X6 is .8 inches wider in the front and 3.1 inches wider in the rear than on the Range Rover Evoque.

The X6’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50.2% to 49.8%) than the Range Rover Evoque’s (58% to 42%). This gives the X6 more stable handling and braking.

The X6 xDrive35i xDrive handles at .88 G’s, while the Range Rover Evoque 5-Door pulls only .82 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The X6 xDrive35i xDrive executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.6 seconds quicker than the Range Rover Evoque 5-Door (26.1 seconds @ .71 average G’s vs. 27.7 seconds @ .66 average G’s).
