New 2015 BMW X6 Facelift: OFFICIAL – Price from £51,150

The 2015 BMW X6 (pictured) officially arrives

Yesterday saw the facelift for the BMW X6 leak out, with a handful of photos showing the styling tweaks BMW has wrought for the updated version of the ‘X5 Coupe’, but we now get the official reveal with full specs and information. As yesterday’s photos showed, BMW has updated the X6 with styling cues borrowed from the new X5 (and, to a degree, from the new X4, the X6′s little brother) with a new treatment for the front and back ends that make the new X6 look less slab-ended than the current model.

That means new contours for the front bumper with larger air intakes, a matt aluminium kidney grill and a rear apron with diffuser, stainless steel exhausts with black chrome tail pipes, 20″ alloys and Ferric Grey mirrors on the X6 M50d.

Inside, the new X6 gets an interior that owes much to the new X5 with Dakota leather, a 10.25″ screen for the iDrive Infotainment climate and 40:20:40 folding back seats that mean more versatility and additional boot space – 1525 litres with all the seats down.

At launch, the new X6 will be offered with a choice of two diesel engines – the X6 30d and X6 50d – and a petrol 50i, with the big seller being the 30d which offers 245bhp and 413lb/ft of torque, enough for a 0-62mph of 6.7 seconds and official economy of 47.1mpg.

The more powerful X6 M50d comes with the same tri-turbo 3.0 litre diesel as the current model – offering 376bhp, 545lb/ft of torque, 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds – and the 50i gets the 4.4 litre V8 petrol with 443bhp, 480lb/ft of torque – a chunk more than the current model – and can now get to 62mph in 4.8 seconds.

All three models of the new X6 will be available when the new X6 goes on sale in December 2014, with the X6 xDrive35i and X6 xDrive 40d due to join in the fun in spring 2015.

It may not be a looker, but the new BMW X6 looks set to garner even more sales as a result of these updates.
