TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - BMW reveals all-new second-generation X6

BMW has unveiled the all-new, second-generation X6, which "blends the robustness and versatility of a BMW X model with the sporting elegance typical of the brand's coupes."

The all-new X6 will be available in December with the initial engine choices being the current-generation 450hp V8 for the X6 xDrive50i; a 258hp six-cylinder diesel for the X6 xDrive30d; and a 381hp triple-turbocharged straight-six diesel for the X6 M50d. To follow next year are the 306hp X6 xDrive35i and the 313hp X6 xDrive40d.

Aiding the all-new X6 in the fuel-economy front are BMW's TwinPower Turbo technology, the standard eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission, extensive BMW EfficientDynamics technology, weight-saving techniques, and enhanced aerodynamics.

The all-new X6 is also generously equipped, with features like bi-xenon headlights, 19-inch wheels, automatic tailgate operation, shift paddles, leather trim, two-zone climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and the driving assistant safety package. Its cargo-carrying capacity has also been expanded, accommodating 580L to as much as 1,525L with the backseats folded flat.

The X6 will be available in either the Design Pure Extravagance equipment package, which supposedly adds "striking, high-quality accents to both the interior and the exterior," or the M Sport package, which includes specially selected features that enhance the vehicle's dynamic character "to immediately eye-catching effect."
