Next year, the BMW X family gains a new member – the third generation X6 Sports Activity Coupe. Built in South Carolina like the recently unveiled X5, the new crossover coupe was just spotted around the American plant, wearing the usual camouflaged clothes. The photo comes courtesy of Palbay.

As expected, the design of the new X6 seems to build upon the one delivered by the G05 X5, so expect to see a larger than usual kidney grille, slimmer headlights and taillights, and a more dynamic front-end. From the side, the X6 will naturally retain its coupe-like roofline while the stance remind us that this is an SUV athlete.

The new X6 will be offered with a rear-wheel drive setup in the sDrive40i guise but that will be the exception to the rule. All other models will come with all-wheel drive, from the xDrive40i to the M50i which will be using the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 as the M850i xDrive scheduled to arrive on Saturday. Inside the cabin we’ll see the same design as on the X5, with higher quality materials and a redesigned center console and dashboard.

One interesting feature rumored to be offered on the new X6 is the Iconic Glow Kidneys, but your guess is just as good as ours when it comes to what it actually means.

According to our own sources, the new X6 is set to arrive somewhere in mid 2019 and the car will be launched as a 2020 model, as the F16 X6 is going out of production in July 2019.

    Good that the X6 is gonna be separated from the X5 design-wise some more. Although i’d admit, it kinda looks lile something we’re used to seeing from the front, like it’s older than the new X5 idk

      Not much, I think it will have a similar front and an X4 rear end

      • Kaisuke971 says:

        Take a look at the base and xLine X5 then this, the lines of the fascia are very different (but tobe fair on the xLine F15 and F16 as well to an extent). The rear has been spied too it’s a mix between the X4 and the X5 but that was predictable.

          im worried about the M8 front bumper I just have a feeling it wont use the concept front bumper :( (concept meaning the m8 gran coupe green one)

          • Kaisuke971 says:

            Eh idk in the video (the latest one on the M8 by Automotive Mike) the car dropped its major camo and it kinda looks like it, maybe less extreme but still

            i just saw this spyshot https://www.instagram.com/p/Bko2XGbFI0D/ the bumper has tiny airintakes and doesnt look aggressive imo :( im so annoyed looks nothing like the concept front bumper unless the camo is hiding more of the vents?? even a 520D m sport has bigger air intakes!!!!!!!!! this is going to ruin the car for me mannnn :( I had a look at the rear that is identical to the concept huge air gaps in the bumper so thats fine EDIT: looked again maybe its my eyes and the camo doing its job i dont know i just dont want to be dissappointed :( if you compare it side by side to the M8 GC front and this m8 spyshot doesnt look the same

        Horatiu have you seen this spyshot from wilcoblok of the M8, https://www.instagram.com/p/Bko2XGbFI0D/ ive never seen that front bumper before it looks nothing like the concept im so upset, it looks too similar to the M850i and a M5 has bigger airtakes than this car!!! argh the front end on the M8 concept GC was perfect even the designer Adrian said that the car is 95% going to look like the concept but i guess that 5% is on the bumper they changed it :( I dont know if camo is hiding some of the air intakes or not but it doesnt look aggressive like the M8 GC concept front bumper the concept bumper looked exotic this doesnt, it looks too soft. I had a look at the rear that is identical to the concept huge air gaps in the bumper so thats fine but i dont get why they are changing the front bumper??? come on its the M8 flagship, if this car has tiny airintakes its going to ruin the car for me and this is coming from the biggest bmw fanboy in the world :*( if you could contact someone or find out or something it would help so much lol EDIT: looked again maybe its my eyes and the camo doing its job i dont know i just dont want to be dissappointed :( if you compare it side by side to the M8 GC front and this m8 spyshot doesnt look the same

    As an X6M owner, on my second one in fact, I am very much looking forward to this. Please give me another in Melbourne Red Metallic without some terrible interior.
