BMW has launched the thrid generation BMW X6 in India at INR 95 lakh, ex-showroom. The X6 is an aggressive looking SUV with ample road presence.
The coupe-SUV is being brought in as a CBU, straight from Germany, and is available with a single petrol engine option. Because of its unique design BMW calls X6 SAC which stands for Sports Activity Coupe.
Powering the new X6 is a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that puts out 340hp and 450Nm of torque. Power is sent to all-four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox and BMW’s xDrive four-wheel drive system.
Two trims: xLine and M Sport are available, priced identically. The xLine version comes with aluminium exterior trim in the grille, roof-rail, etc., grey body cladding and unique front bumper and alloys. The M Sport version is sportier to look at with high-gloss exterior trim, an M aero package, and larger alloy wheels. The M Sport also gets unique suspension tuning, brakes and exhaust system. On the inside, the M Sport also gets M-specific pedals, steering wheel and optional carbon-fibre trim elements. The X6 also offers the option of lighting the kidney grille.
Both trims, the xLine and M Sport, are loaded with equipment such as Laser LED headlights with LED DRLs, a 12.3-inch touchscreen with BMW’s latest iDrive system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, full-leather upholstery, ambient lighting, heads-up display, a tyre pressure monitoring system and multiple drive modes.
