2015 BMW X6 Spy Video

Follow Viknesh

BMW’s second-generation X6 crossover coupe has been spotted at the Nürburgring, and we’ve got an exclusive spy video of it. The vehicle, code-named the F16, rides on the same platform as the latest X5 and should feature the same engine lineup too.

Though the styling and overall shape haven’t changed much, the new X6 is expected to be longer from bumper to bumper (by some 1.3 inches) and its track a bit wider too. The headlight and grille treatment is similar to what we see on the latest X5 and the interior is likely to match up as well.

Under the hood, expect to see turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engines powered by both gasoline and diesel once again, as well as some turbo V-8s. The base X6 sDrive35i should come with 300 horsepower and standard rear-wheel drive. Buyers of course will still be able to opt for xDrive all-wheel drive.

The range topper once again will be an M version; expect this model to continue with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8. A new X5 M is already in the works and we should be seeing the new X6 M starting development soon. Overseas, buyers should also have the option of sporty M Performance diesels. It’s not clear yet but BMW may also offer a plug-in hybrid model featuring a drivetrain based on the one featured in last year’s Concept X5 eDrive.

Note, a new X6 isn’t the only crossover coupe BMW has in the works; the automaker is also working on a smaller X4 due for a reveal in the coming months. The new X6 should be revealed towards the end of the year. ________________________________
