For a car that’s clearly not everyone’s cup of tea, the BMW X6 sure is popular. In fact, it’s such a good moneymaker for the Bavarian brand that they introduced the third generation, 12 years after the first one went into production.
Retaining the arched roofline that made it famous, the 2020 X6 has a big grille, slim headlights, aggressive creases, LED taillamps and large wheels, up to 22-inch in diameter, depending on the version. The overall footprint has gone up as well, improving rear legroom and boot capacity.
Inside, it mimics the look of the latest X5, on which it is based, with a few minor exceptions, and gets lots of premium finishes, including the Vernasca leather sport seats and Sensated-wrapped dashboard. The usual technology features such as the 12.3-inch infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster of the same size are also present, alongside a generous assortment of options, like the panoramic glass roof, four-zone climate control, head-up display, premium sound system and many others.
You’ll be able to purchase the new X6 in the U.S. starting next month, from $64,300 for the 335 HP sDrive40i and $85,650 for the 523 HP M50i, excluding the $995 destination charge. The xDrive40i is also available, while Europeans get two diesels, the 261 HP xDrive30d and 395 HP M50d.
