BMW X6 facelift revealed at the Paris Motor Show

BMW X6 facelift revealed at the Paris Motor Show

BMW has unveiled the facelifted X6 at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The new X6 is not a new generation model, instead it is an updated version with considerable changes inside out. 

The refreshed X6 gets new body panels everywhere - bonnet, doors, the rear openable hatch and bumpers. The kidney grille is more in line with the recently launched X5 and the X3 and the SUV now looks more rounded and aggressive in comparison to the outgoing model.

The headlights are new, the rear diffuser is new and the taillights are larger than before. The new model is 32mm longer, 6mm wider and 33mm taller than the outgoing model, but the wheelbase remains the same. 

BMW has used high-tensile steel, thermoplastics and aluminium, for the updated X6 resulting in weight saving of 40 kg over the outgoing model. The weight saving theme continues with the instrument cluster getting magnesium. The company engineers have managed to strike a 50:50 weight distribution for the SUV.

It will continue to be powered by the TwinPower 3.0-litre diesel engine that does duty in the 5 Series and the X5 in India. This engine churns out 258bhp and 559Nm of torque. This engine will be mated to an eight-speed ZF transmission and we might get the four-wheel-drive variant only.

BMW discontinued the X6 in India owing to poor demand, but we expect the new car to be launched by mid-2015 here. It still doesn’t seem convincing for a market like India, but then it is a good alternative for someone looking for an SUV with different looks.
