 Remember how everybody laughed at the original X6? BMW laughed too... all the way to the bank. The second generation wasn't that much different, but it was successful. However, an all-new should put the Bavarians back on top of the Sports Activity Coupe game.
For whatever reason, BMW hasn't started work on the X6 III, even though the X4 was ready only a few months after the X3. We think this has to do with the life cycle, as the current generation dates back to 2014.

Despite being very profitable, doesn't have that many rivals yet... in theory. The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is ugly to the bone, and while the Audi Q8 is more enjoyable to look at, it's not available quite yet.

We think the biggest problem for the entire segment is going to be the Range Rover Velar. Sure, it doesn't have that sloping roof, but it doesn't need one when the exterior proportions are so gorgeous.

In any case, we're here to talk about a rendering, two of them, actually. Graphics designer Aksyonov Nikita chopped the all-new generation X5 into a new X6, and he decided to show the car from both angles.

This is one of those rare situations where we know a car will exist, but the rendering comes before the spyshots. So there's no way to tell if the images accurately depict the next X6. One small question mark hovers over the trunk opening, which starts too low to work on a sports model.

However, we can say that this version looks better both than the older generation and also the smaller X4. It's this editor's humble opinion that BMW messed up the design of the smaller of the two SACs - the bulging headlights just don't match the narrow back. However, the rendered X6 has no such issues.

When launched, the new X6 will have all sorts of interesting powertrains, including three that wear the M badge. Of course, we're eager to see how the 600 horsepower flagship stands up against a Tesla and other drag racing heavyweights.
