Update: Latest X6 Photos
The BMW X6 official photos have been released to the press. BMW has finally unveiled its brand new model X6 coupe-crossover, a combination between a Sport Activity Vehicle and a coupe. BMW will be the first automaker to bring such an SAV to market, although other automakers are said to be planning similar coupe-like utility vehicles.
The BMW X6 was presented at the IAA in Frankfurt. Like the M3, it is being billed as concept, but a nearly identical production vehicle is expected to arrive in dealerships in early 2008.
In a recent video, Exterior designer Pierre Leclercq says the X6 is “a real sports car,” true to BMW’s tradition. “There’s nothing like this on the market right now.”
The BMW X6 is longer and a lower than the new X5, but in the same time offering only 4 seats. The econd-row headroom and rear cargo volume are both compromised and it might draw some criticism based on that. But what the sporty X6 loses in seating and storage, it is expected gain in performance.
