Second gen BMW X6 complies with the brand’s modern design direction while retaining its distinct shape.

When first gen X6 was launched globally in 2008, it created a new coupe SUV segment which has grown in popularity ever since. The second iteration steps in after 250,000 units of the original model were sold. Both Mercedes GLE Coupe and upcoming Audi Q4 are products which are now looking to join X6 in the lucrative niche segment.

Since X6’s strikingly distinct silhouette enjoys great fan following, BMW designers haven’t changed much in profile. The front fascia however undergoes revisions that are intended to align the luxury SAV with the brand’s latest design direction. The car is available with M Sport design package.

The interior is shared with new X5 which is already on sale in India.

Usage of high strength steel, thermoplastics, aluminium and magnesium has resulted in weight reduction of up to 40 kg which directly translates into better efficiency and lower emissions. The India-spec variant continues to be available in xDrive40d diesel variant which is powered by a inline six-cylinder 3.0-litre diesel engine which pumps out 313 PS and 630 Nm of torque. A 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters disperses power to all the four wheels. The engine delivers a mileage of 15.87 kmpl under European Driving Cycle.
