The BMW X6 has been snapped testing ahead of a mid-life refresh.
The coupe-backed brother to the X5 looks like it’s wearing a new face, with fresh detailing in the headlights.
Inside, the X6 will likely gain the curved OS8.0 infotainment system. It’s already been rolled out in the i4 and iX, with a large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
Powered by the latest iDrive 8 operating system, this new infotainment system supports over-the-air updates, improved personalisation, voice recognition features, and a minimalist interface with large icons.
It looks like the BMW X5 and X6 will get more than just a massaged look with their mid-life refresh, according to a new report.
According to the report, the inline six-cylinder xDrive40i petrol will be boosted from 250kW to 275kW, and the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e will be boosted from 290kW to almost 360kW of power thanks to the powertrain from the next-gen 7 Series.
A longer electric-only range is also likely, although exactly how far it’ll be extended isn’t clear.
Finally, the report claims the flagship M Sport version of the X5 and X6, currently badged M50i, will swap its current V8 engine for a version of the hybrid S68 twin-turbo V8 we’re expecting to feature in the XM SUV.
It won’t necessarily get a power boost, however. The current engine outputs 390kW and 750Nm.
