Now that we’ve seen the new G05 BMW X5, it’s only a matter of time before its coupe-like siblings shows itself. The upcoming G06-generation BMW X6 isn’t too far behind the X5 and should be making its debut relatively soon. Though, it’s not exactly difficult to imagine what it’s going to look like. You’ve seen the new BMW X5 and the new BMW X4, right? Yea, combine those two and you get the camouflaged BMW X6 seen on this car carrier in these new spy photos. (We don’t own the photos but see them here)

What’s ironic is that the BMW X6 in these photos is sitting on the bottom part of a double-deck car carrier and an X4 is sitting right above it. Thought the X6 is camouflaged and obviously larger, it’s not hard to notice the similarities between the two.

They both have a very similar roofline and tailgate shape, making it obvious that they’re both from the same family of cars. The only real difference between the two seems to be size. The BMW X6 is significantly larger than the X4, more so than you might have original thought. It’s a seriously big car, the X6.

There are also some photos of it on the ground, driving around, and it looks pretty good. It’s obviously too early to tell but this might be the more successful interpretation of the BMW X6 design. It looks low and sporty and not just like an X5 with the back of its head chopped off. It’s still huge, mind you, and it still looks like an X5 from the A-pillar forward. But it looks far more like an original product, and less like an afterthought, that its predecessors.

Most of you are probably just wondering when the BMW X6 M will debut. Unfortunately, we don’t have any official information on that, or even the standard X6 at the moment, but you can certainly expect one in the near future.

    I would not say the same, this thing looks awesome. Cleanest lines so far on a new BMW. Those rear haunches look extremely supercar-like. It should be a looker.

  2. Icebreakerr says:

    TO NIKO how does it look the same as the X4???? when it has completley different rear lights to the X6… and comparing both shots on the trailer of both x6 and x4 they dont look the same.. X6 looks like a sports/super car coupe on steroids. cant wait to see this car on the road <3

  3. Kaisuke971 says:

    Looks better than the X4 to my eyes, a cleaner fascia (which makes sense since the X5 looks better than the X3), the roofline is sweeping in a more romantic fashion and the X6 looks more like it’s squatting on its wheels.

  4. Hayden8 says:

    The new X6 (G06) will be unveiled in June 2019, production start in August 2019 and will be on sale in November 2019.

  5. Arunabh says:

    This looks just perfect. Menacing, unashamed, don’t mess with me look… I will never go tired of this car.

    This is alot more of a BMW than many original BMW’s true successors.

      Your comment indicates an absolute disconnect with BMW and what BMW stands for. If you want to look like a menacing thug buy a Ford

  6. mod9 says:

    I have never liked the X6 because of its rear design. I must say, I think they have finally nailed the design- this car looks really appealing to me now.

    Well done to the designers… a job well done indeed.

  7. Alexander S says:

    X4’s rear and front look like they from different cars. This X6 looks so far more harmonic. They are different.

  8. Eddie says:

    Looks like a M5 they just added more air. Very aggressive, sharp lines. Love the headlights. The dash seems higher up vs last year. There is something about the grill but can not place it now.

    How can a cross truck SUV be referred as a car?

    It is back to the “same sausage, different lengths” Design philosophy!
