If you happen to fancy the BMW X6, you're in for a treat, as BMW is approaching the moment when it will introduce the 2020 model. However, even those who aren't big fans of the Bavarian SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) might be tempted by the newcomer and that's because the third generation will come with a sleeker look.
The original X6, which landed for the 2008 model year, came with odd looks, while the current model was more of a comprehensive update than an all-new model.

This was all dictated by the way in which BMW built the X5, which obviously served as a base for the X6. However, now that the all-fresh 2019 X5 is among us, the bar has been raised.

The 2020 X6 is set to arrive next year, with the vehicle currently being in its final testing stages. And you can check out the more muscular silhouette of the newcomer in the spyshots above, which show the high-riding model on the Nurburgring.

Sure, the Green Hell has now closed its gates for the 2018 season, but these pics were snapped last week.

The CLAR architecture that will underpin the third-gen BMW X6 means the SUV-Coupe will be slightly lighter, while offering superior torsional rigidity.

While the on-road handling is set to become sharper, the German automotive producer has paid attention to feedback and will make sure that the X6 can perform better in offroading scenarios.

The engine range of the 2020 BMW X6 will be shared with that of the 2019 X5 and you can find the list of gas and diesel units here.

Of course, there will once again be a BMW X6 M - both this and the 2020 X5 M have already been spied.

The 2018 BMW M5 has shown us what to expect from the future go-fast SUVs, which means these will be animated by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 600 horsepower. Nevertheless, the rumor mill talks about the M Division expanding its Competition range to include crossovers, which means the said output might climb even higher.
