2020 BMW X6 India launch: What to expect?
After making a splash with the 8 Series and M8 last month, BMW will launch the next-generation BMW X6 coupe-SUV in India on June 11. The X6 pioneered the coupe-SUV trend when it first launched in 2008. With this launch, the X6 now enters its third generation.
The new X6 is expected to be available with a single petrol engine option, to begin with. This will most likely be the xDrive40i variant. This version features a 3.0-litre inline-six turbo petrol engine that makes 340PS and 450 Nm. This will be paired to the ZF eight-speed automatic and AWD.
The X6 will be available in two style packages: xLine and M Sport. 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
Other notable features on the X6 are the twin 12.3-inch screen Drive infotainment system, an optional Bowers and Wilkins audio system, wireless charging, dynamic ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, crystal elements on the centre console, BMW Laser lighting and heated and cooled cupholders, among other things. Safety is expected to be well taken care of with at least 9 airbags, and BMW's trick 360-degree camera system. Also expect the revesing assistant and the self-park functionality.
Prices for the new BMW X6 are expected to start at around Rs 1 crore, ex-showroom. It will compete against the Audi Q8 and the Porsche Cayenne Coupe.
