BMW introduced the first generation of the X6 in 2007, and its coupe-like shape shook the world since, after all, it was a high-rider.
But despite the world financial crisis from those years, customers bought it. Thus, by 2020, the car had already reached its third generation. But the automaker had to refresh it, and in February 2023, it launched the facelifted version for it. Thus, just like its X5 sibling, the X6 featured went through some mild changes to the car's exterior, some significant upgrades on the interior, and an electrified engine range.
At the front, the X6 received a new bumper that sported a broad lower grille with an angular look and was flanked by a pair of slim, vertical air inlets. In addition, the automaker installed redesigned headlights with integrated V-shaped turn-signals/daytime running lights pointing outward. At the back, the X6 showed its new LED taillights that were well extended into the tailgate.
Inside, the cabin boasted sports seats fitted as standard, fronting the redesigned digital dashboard. This consisted of a 12.3" instrument panel and a massive 14.9" touchscreen for the iDrive 8's infotainment system. At the back, the X6 offered a 40/20/40 split-folding bench that could expand the trunk space from 580 liters (20.4 cu-ft) to 1,530 liters (54 cu-ft).
Under the hood, BMW installed revised gasoline engines helped by mild-hybrid systems that helped reduce emissions. In addition, a three-liter inline-six turbo-diesel, also helped by a mild-hybrid unit, was offered depending on the market.
