All variants of the new X6 will be fitted with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard meet the requirements of the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.

At 4,935mm, the new model is 26mm longer than its predecessor while it is also 15mm wider at 2,004mm.

At launch it will be available in xLine and M Sport model variants as alternatives to standard specification.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional in the X6 includes a high resolution instrument cluster and a control display, both with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches.

It also features the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, an intelligent digital character who responds to the prompt “Hey BMW”.

It is able to explain all sorts of different functions, provide up-to-date information and assist the driver.

The X6 is one of 18 model launches BMW has this year. Other new launches include the 3 Series, 1 Series, X5 plug-in hybrid, Z4, 8 Series and X7.

Further ahead, BMW plans to have 25 electrified models by 2025.
