The facelifted BMW X6 has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show.

Changes at the front of the revised car include relocated foglights, which now sit high up in the outer air inlets, a more pronounced kidney grille and the addition of optional adaptive LED headlamps; these come as standard on the new BMW X6M as do blue aluminium brake callipers.

At the rear of the facelifted X6, new horizontally mounted twin LED light banks emphasize the car’s width. Further external revisions include new paint finishes – including Marrakech Brown metallic, Orion Silver metallic and Midnight Blue metallic – and new bi-colour, double spoke 19-inch alloys for the BMW X6 xDrive 50i model.

As well as featuring in the new BMW M Performance tri-turbo diesel line-up, the facelifted X6 is available with five engine choices – the range topping 555bhp X6M, V8 xDrive50i, six-pot xDrive35i and diesel-powered xDrive40d and xDrive30d, the latter of which is available with BMW’s nitrogen oxide-reducing BluePerformance Technology from spring. This also features in BMW's revised 1-series engine line-up.

Inside the revised X6’s cabin, standard leather interior is available in Vermilion Red for the first time, while the nappa leather option comes with the choice of either Black or Ebony White.

Sales of the revised BMW X6 start in June and prices start from £46,725 for the xDrive30d (a premium of £340 compared with the current model) and rise to £85,680 (up by £3.5k) for the range-topping X6 M. The new M Performance tri-turbo diesel X6 will cost from £62,260 when it goes on sale at the same time.

It still won't fit through a 6ft 6" width limit.

What can you say that is polite? not very much, still very ugly and not desirable at all money better spent on a Range Rover or RR Sport or even the Cayenne is a lot nicer now if you can't afford the previous two.
