And you people said that the X6 was a terrible mistake and coveres an un-existing market, but it seems like BMW’s competitors have a different opinion. MotorAuthority reports that Acura is currently testing a crossover prototype that will be placed in the same niche as the BMW X6.

Despite the negative reactions displayed before the X6 launch, the bimmer fans have embraced the new Sports Activity Coupe and regardless of the high price, not many dealerships carry a large inventory.

The Acura prototype sports an extremely low roofline that will give the car a coupe-like profile and the overall shape, strongly suggests that this is their version of a crossover coupe.

The car will be most likely launched in 2010 and the rumor among the industry experts hints to a base price of $50,000. Of course, these are numbers are purely based on speculation and the market value of its competitors.

The spy photos are not great at all and the best we can see is an overall exterior shape. And we thought that BMW was bad with their camouflage technique, the Acura’s one looks like a tent wrapped around the car.
