Independent artists have published a render for rival Mercedes GLE Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Coupe. The debut of the new X6 should take place before the end of the year – most likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Start sales can begin at the very end of this year.

High cars, such as crossovers and SUVs, by definition cannot have a coupe body type. That is why I do not like to call these large cars with sloping roofs precisely the word “coupe”, and in fact this is the term that the whole industry uses today. BMW is one of the pioneering brands in this segment, and the company’s engineers are currently putting the final touches on the third generation of the X6 – essentially the first coupe-like crossover. This exclusive rendering shows what to expect from a car with an internal G06 index.

Honestly, it is not so difficult to predict the design of the new X6. It relies on the same basic design concept as the current X5, which was mixed with a slightly more pronounced front end, sloping roofline and some changes in the rear end.

In addition, “spy” photos have already given us a good idea of ​​what the new model will look like, and it can probably be said with confidence that this digital interpretation is fairly accurate. Of course, we will not know if this is true until a real car appears – the presentation should take place before the end of the year.

Using the same fundamentals as the X5, the novelty with a coupe body will in fact share all the most basic components and assemblies with a younger brother. Depending on the market, the X6 will be available with a range of six and eight-cylinder turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines. A full-fledged M-version is also in development, it will receive a 4.4-liter V8, a more powerful version of the BMW X6 M Competition with a capacity of more than 600 horsepower will also be offered.
