Facelift BMW X6 Begins Testing On The Streets Of Germany

The facelift X6 also reveals new details

The BMW X6 facelift was expected when the facelift version of the X5, was spotted testing. Prototypes of the facelift X6 have been caught testing many times before, including in the cold weather of Scandinavia. But, it looks like now that the winter is gone, the future facelift X6 is focusing its attention on a more appropriate habitat - the streets of Germany.

Since the prototype is not covered in snow anymore, we can also spot a few more details. First of all, it looks like the headlights will not only get a slimmer design inspired by the recently launched XM Concept, but also some new graphics. The grille will also feature a few updates, and so will the front bumper which seems to be redesigned.

Just like the previous prototypes, the one caught testing today also wears no camouflage at the rear. This doesn’t mean that there will be no changes here. Rumors suggest the rear lights will get new graphics and that the exhaust system will get new end pipes.

The interior should also be updated with new trims and materials, and also with BMW’s latest iDrive 8 infotainment system.

We do not expect to see any updates under the hood, so customers will get the same engine lineup as now. Just as a reminder, in the States, the coupe will come in the usual 40i and the M50i trims. The first model will feature a turbocharged, 3.0-liter inline-six engine rated at 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, while the higher trim will get a more powerful twin-turbo, 4.4-liter V-8 rated at 523 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.
