The all-new BMW X6 M has been spied testing in Austria. The performance coupe-SUV was clearly checking out alpine abilities of the new powertrain and chassis since it’s been spotted near mountains. The vehicle keeps its new body beneath the wraps, so we are still unable to see all the details. However, judging by the spy shots, the 2020 BMW X6 M will receive an evolutionary redesign, which is quite logical as the predecessor was quite popular.
The new topper gets a slightly rounded body shape than the predecessor. There is a pair of new and quite aggressive headlights which sport slimmer LED elements, as well as the completely new bumper all the way down that features new air intakes. SUV’s kidney grille may not look this way when the production model arrives. No, because the new M models host black double bars and an optional black frame, which is not the case with the prototype. On the other hand, the quad exhausts in the rear bumper will stay on board, which will also be the case with the blue calipers without any doubt. The 2020 BMW X6 M appears to feature chunky fender flares and wider tracks, as well as a new wing mirror. Altogether, the vehicle looks quite impressive, so we can’t wait to see the production model without camouflage.
The sporty and aggressive body is not everything that the 2020 X6 M is going to offer, of course. The crossover coupe will be mated to an impressive powertrain. Beneath the hood, BMW will put in charge the M5’s twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8. The massive engine will pump out 617 hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm). The power will travel to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Unofficially, the system will enable a very quick 0-60 mph sprint that’s estimated to happen in less than 4 seconds.
The new-generation BMW X6 M will be introduced late next year, so there’s plenty of time for us to find out more about the impressive SUV.
Stay tuned for updates.
