The X6 is a mid-size luxury crossover produced by BMW. This crossover was originally launched in 2007 as 2009 year model. It was based on company’s mid-size X5 crossover, but featured several unique characteristics, mainly in terms of body style. After eight years of production, this model was finally redesigned. Last year we saw a second generation of this luxury crossover, which came with plenty of changes and improvements, compared to original model. Since this is still a very fresh model, it is expected that 2016 BMW X6 will come with the pretty much same characteristics, without any bigger change.
2016 BMW X6 specs
As we already mentioned, 2016 BMW X6 will come as pretty much same deal as previous-year model. Visually, there new model will be pretty much identical to 2015 year model. It will feature all of the changes that came with last-year redesign. New model comes with sharper cues, and there are many elements borrowed from smaller X4. At the front, there is a front fascia with company’s recognizable headlights and grille but on the other side, front bumper is completely new and features large air intakes and new-designed fog lights. When it is about interior, new model comes with upgrades that we already saw on new X5. Those changes include new dashboard, new front seats, much sportier overall styling etc. The 2016 BMW X6 comes with standard features like leather upholstery, large 10.2-inch flat screen with iDrive operating system, leather-wrapped steering wheel and many other. It is also worth to mention that the cabin of this model is highly-customizable, so there are plenty of possibilities to make your own.
