Default Bmw 2020 X6

Porsche Cayenne Coupe rival is seen to adopt evolutionary styling approach in new images, and is on sale later this year

New BMW X6 leaks ahead of tonight's official reveal
BMW is set to pull the covers off its new X6 late this evening, but what look like press images of the coup-SUV have leaked out already.

Published first on Instagram before a number of BMW fan sites picked them up, the images show the new X6 will continue the design theme of the last-generation model, but with detail changes mirroring the rest of the firm's now fully up-to-date X line-up.

The front end gets a more aggressive interpretation of BMW's SUV face, while the roofline tapers and slopes down at the rear in true coup style. At the back, the stretched LED tail-lights are heavily inspired by the X4.

Details, as well as the interior, remain under wraps, but we know that much of the car's mechanical make-up, engines and technology will be borrowed from its X5 sibling.

Production will remain at BMWs US plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where prototypes are already being built for testing. X6 prototypes have previously been spotted on the same outing as a flagship X6 M, which will use the M5s 4.4-litre V8 for an anticipated output of 600bhp or more.

The X6 range will kick off with xDrive30d and xDrive40d variants, although a greater petrol-powered offering is expected. xDrive40i, 50i and 45e versions will make up the rest of the range, with the notable addition of the plug-in hybrid.

M Performance M50d and M50i variants are also planned as BMW proliferates its M sub-brand, although the M50i petrol might not be offered in Europe, as it's geared towards the US market.

The M50d will be powered by a quad-turbo 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine producing more than 400bhp.

Like the X5, the new X6 will be based on BMWs CLAR platform, with double wishbone front suspension and five-link rear suspension. Air suspension will be an option.

Inside, the new X6 will be almost identical to the X5, with BMWs new seventh-generation iDrive infotainment system featuring. Expect a slightly lower driving position for a sportier feel, alongside reduced space for rear-seat occupants.

I don't get it either. I understand the functionality of a liftback, but with no cargo space, you'll just shatter the glass against whatever you put in there when you try to close it. I also don't understand why everything is lifted - aside from what they market it as (commanding seating position, etc) is there an engineering advantage to a taller chassis height? Like can they fit a taller engine in there, more cooling, brake ducts, etc? Is it really just to make it look more like a truck, but ride like a car with 22" wheels?! Pretty stupid if you ask me. The only thing that has me intrigued is:

"The M50d will be powered by a quad-turbo 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine producing more than 400bhp."

Yeah it’s a lifted A7/A5SB for similar money. The question really is; why are car versions so overpriced?
