New BMW X6 Breaks Cover

Images of the face lifted second generation BMW X6 have been released.

Although not radically different, the front end looks chunkier than before, and the grille larger. The headlights are longer too, and the fog lights are placed higher up and further back than before.

At the back, everything looks the same, but the biggest change is from standard rear lamps to LED lights.

19 inch light alloy wheels are available as an option, as is a 5 litre V8 engine; hardly economical, but the X6 has never been about efficiency.

Six engines are available: the new X6 M50d unveiled last week being the most powerful, followed by the X6M, and then the xDrive50i, six-cylinder xDrive35i, and diesel xDrive40d and xDrive30d.

Prices start at £46,725 for the xDrive30d when the range goes on sale in June, and go all the way up to £85,680 for the X6M.
