In today’s Special Coverage episode with Mousub Shashaa, we present our first test-drive of the all-new 2020 BMW X6 comes from the outskirts of Munich, Germany.
Just to remind you, we have recently introduced an episode about the powerful 2020 BMW M8 Competition, which was driven by our colleague Suhaib Shashaa in Portugal. But today, we’ll show you our test-drive of the all-new 3rd generation of the Bavarian luxury SUV coupe.
This is the all-new third-generation X6, and the SUV Coupé got a front grille bearing the famous BMW identity, but it’s slightly larger than before and it received some LED lights. This is a new feature from the Bavarian manufacturer that it provides for the first time in a production car. This feature will be available later on for the rest of the production cars.
The grille is surrounded by high beam matrix LED lights, and the car also got a new front bumper that adds an identity derived from its sister 2019 X7.
Light-alloy wheels from 19 up to 22 inches in size are available for the new SUV, but the radical change in the design of the car is seen in the back, as the rear of the new BMW X6 has an extremely athletic silhouette with powerful shoulders, with wide LED rear lights, new exhaust tailpipes rear air diffuser and a thin rear wing integrated in the lid of the trunk.
The car became 15 mm longer, and 6 mm lower compared to the previous model and wheelbase increased by 42 mm.
During today’s episode, Mousub drove the new X6 M50i, which is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine generating 523 hp (530 PS) and 750 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which helps the car accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.3 seconds
Although BMW X6 is the origin of the SUV Coupe category, it has many competitors: Porsche Cayenne Coupe, Audi Q8, and Mercedes GLE Coupe.
The prices of the 2020 BMW X6 in global markets start from 94,650 US dollars equivalent to 354,950 Saudi riyals.
