Here we have the latest spy shots of the second generation BMW X6 prototype, wearing less side camouflage and also showing us more of the taillights, which are clearly different than the ones on the new third-generation X5. The L-shaped LED strip graphic is different, creating a new look and effect.
Compared to the outgoing model, we can see new headlights, new side mirrors with thin LED turn signals. Overall look is bigger and beefier. It looks like the sloping roofline is a bit higher at the rear, offering more headroom for the rear passengers.
The interior will largely carry over from the X5, just as it did on the outgoing model.
Engine range is expected to include top petrol and diesel options from the X5, while the range topping X6 M will continue to use a 4.4-litre twin turbo V8, that in the outgoing model packs 555bhp and is very likely to develop little more power in the new model.
The X6 was scheduled to debut this summer at the Moscow Auto Show, but that is now very unlikely with Russia’s invasion of Crimea and continuous conflict with a big part of the world.
