The new 2019 BMW X6 – codenamed the G06 – has been spotted testing around Munich. It’ll be based on the new X5 and comes with comfy air suspension as standard.
2019 BMW X6 price and release date
The new BMW X6 is expected to go on sale in the middle of 2019 carrying a price tag of around £62,000 for an entry-level model with the 30d 3.0-litre diesel engine. It’s an alternative to models such as the Range Rover Sport and the Mercedes GLE Coupe.
2019 BMW X6 specifications
The 2019 BMW X6 is based on the new X5 and follows the same design language laid down by that model. As a result, the X6’s most distinctive new feature is its huge front grille that looks like a pair of flared nostrils and has individual kidney elements that join in the middle.
Inside, you can expect slight improvements on interior space with the X6 capable of carrying four people and their luggage for a week with ease.
You also notice improvements to the car’s infotainment system with the X6 destined to get BMW’s latest i-drive 7.0 operating system. It gets two huge infotainment screens – one in the centre of the dashboard and another that replaces the conventional dials behind the steering wheel. The latter has a new angular design rather than the circular instruments you might expect to find.
All very important for a posh SUV, but what really matters for a BMW – even one that’s a big SUV – is how it drives. To that end, the entry-level X6 will be available as 3.0-litre diesel and petrol models – the 340hp 40i and 365hp 30d, respectively. Both will come with active dampers and air suspension as standard, so you can expect the 2019 BMW X6 to be surprisingly agile and comfortable.
At the top of the range, you’ll find the M50d, which has a mind-boggling four turbochargers that help it squeeze 400hp out of its 3.0-litre diesel engine. It’ll get from 0-62mph in a shade over five seconds and gets a bespoke suspension setup that’ll make it feel even more nimble and offer up more steering feel.
