The BMW X6, which was first launched in 2008, pioneered the now burgeoning coupe-SUV segment. And now, there’s a new one! It gets BMW’s latest design language, technological features and other updates too. Set to go on sale in select international markets by the end of 2019, BMW has confirmed that the new X6 will be available in four variants - xDrive 30d, xDrive 40i, M50d and M50i.

It has also grown in size when compared to the outgoing model. The new X6 is 26mm longer (4935mm) and 15mm wider (2004mm) while the wheelbase has increased by 42mm (2975mm). Its sporty stance is further enhanced by the wider front track and 6mm lower height (1696mm). In terms of exterior design, the new X6 also features the latest iteration of BMW’s signature kidney grille design, now bigger in size and also illuminated for the first time. It also gets the optional BMW Laserlight feature with LED headlights.

BMW has split the design details into two broad categories - xLine and M Sport. The latter offers a more sporty appearance with optional carbon fibre bits while the xLine packages give the X6 a more rugged rather than sporty aesthetic. The M variants get 21-inch, light-alloy wheels as standard while the others get 19-inch light-alloys as standard. There are 20- to 22-inch units optional extras also available from BMW along with a whole range of add-ons and accessories.
