BMW reveals X6

BMW has revealed the first details for its new X6 crossover which will go on sale in the UK on May 31.

The X6 range will solely be available with turbocharged engines, a 306bhp xDrive35i petrol and a 235bhp xDrive30d, 306bhp xDrive35d and a new 4.4-litre V8 engine producing 408hp.

All four X6 models utilise BMW’s EfficientDynamics technology. Brake Energy Regeneration is standard across the range and combines with active aerodynamics and low viscosity fluids in the steering and transmission systems.

Klaus Kibsgaard, the new managing director of BMW (UK), said: “People have questioned why we should launch such a car, but these doubters are the same who said a BMW X5 wasn’t a true BMW and that we shouldn’t produce that.”

BMW is expecting to sell 1,600 X6s in its first year of sales and will be targeting buyers that want to strike the balance between a 4x4 and a coupe.

BMW believes the diesel versions of the X6 will be the best sellers.

Prices

X6 xDrive30d: £41,965
X6 xDrive35d: £44,145
X6 xDrive35i: £42,730
