BMW has launched the new-generation X6 in the Indian market today at a price of ₹95 lakh. While the X6 was slated to arrive in India in early 2020, but the coronavirus outbreak pushed the carmaker to delay the launch.
The all-new X6 has been launched as a completely built unit (CBU) and have been now declared open for booking at dealerships.
The new X6 sports a significantly larger BMW Kidney Grille with an optional Illuminated Kidney Grille – a first-ever for BMW. The twin LED headlights come as standard and extend up to the BMW Kidney Grille. The optional BMW Laserlight offers selective beam and high beam function with a range of around 500 meters.
Compared to its predecessor, the all-new BMW X6 has grown in terms of length (26 mm), width (15mm) and wheelbase (42mm). At the same time, overall height has been reduced by 6 mm. It also gets 20-inch light alloy wheels.
The interior of the all-new BMW X6 is also upgraded with a more driver-focused cockpit. The new model comes equipped with Temperature Controlled Cup holders (heated and cooled) and offers Wireless Charging as standard.
The all-new BMW X6 also offers 580 litres of storage space. Depending on various requirements, the three sections of the backrest can be folded in 40:20:40 split and offers an impressive 1,530 litres of luggage space when rear seats are folded, making the vehicle suitable for all kinds of journeys.
The Indian-spec BMW X6 is powered by a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder turbo-petrol delivering 340 PS of power and 450 Nm of torque at 1,500 – 5,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which transmits power to all-wheels via BMW’s xDrive four-wheel-drive system. The car accelerates from 0 -100 kmph in 5.5 seconds, and can attain a top speed of 250 kmph.
