BMW is preparing a new model based on the X5: the X6 that has taken the philosophy of the Mercedes CLS four-door-coupe, utilizing a sloped roof-line and and tauter packaging in the name of style.
It was first speculated that the model is the V5, but the V5 is supposed to be a uniquely space- efficient vehicle in the guise of Mercedes’ R-Class, and this prototype doesn’t seem to fit that description.
BMW appears to be making the right move in putting the
X6 ahead of the V5 in the development cycle. The X6 is likely still
two years away from showrooms.
