The new BMW X6 SUV has been spotted testing in Europe ahead of going on sale in the UK at the end of this year. The car is expected to have its public debut at the Moscow motor show in August.
Having been previously spotted testing at the Nürburgring, this latest test mule sports less camouflage than previous models. In particular, new tail lights can be seen on this model, sporting new rear light designs.
As well as a more muscular appearance than the current model, which moves away from the X5 in terms of shape and detail, we can also see the new X6 has grown considerably in size, to around 4910mm long. That should give the new X6 more interior space than the current model, which offers 570 litres of storage with the rear seats up, rising to 1450 litres with them down.
Power for the new car is likely to come from a new range of twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-litre diesel and tri-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder engines, as well as a selection of upgraded 4.4-litre V8 petrols for both standard and M division cars. A hybrid version, combining the 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol with an electric motor, is also in development.
