I like the new front, resembles the X5.

However, I don't know why, but I agree with some that the current one is much more attractive. The current gen is muscular and sexy, this one is nice too, but something about it doesn't seem too right, the current gen's proportions are way better.

The rear looks a lot like the X4 I think.

Wow, is that awful looking. What is the "pontoon" over the rear wheels?

I've never been a fan of the X6 - just don't get the point of it. If I am going to drive a car with a useless back seat, why would I want it to be a 5,000 pound, high "SUV" that's grossly lacking in the utility area?

Previous gen was unique with its front facia. This new one is a patch job

I wish they did more to differentiate the X6 from the X5 up front -- sleeker headlights, more oval kidneys...something. Then they took the X4 rear which is just wrong given the high price point this vehicle is likely to sell for. I actually think the X5 tail light design looks better.

The two-tone ivory/black combo looks stunning to me , but doesn't look quite right in brown for some reason. A dark red would probably look better.

Overall, the interior seems sportier than the exterior to me.

+1. I think it's definitely better than the previous gen, maybe a lot better, but still sort of awkward.

The two tone interior with the contrast stitching is pure awesomeness. Love it. The interior overall is very nicely done, B&O looks amazing and surely will sound amazing.

The Flamenco Red M50d is beautifully colored. As with the E71 and E70, I like the F16 over the F15. Even the rear. But, I am not sure if I like the rear more than the current gen.

Overall, really well done. If I didn't own a 2013 E71 X6M, I'd be all over an F86 X6M when it comes out. But my heart belongs to my baby, and I won't be trading her in for the new model. She's a keeper.

I must be in the minority and I know my opinion means nothing to BMW.

But I do not like anything BMW has put out since the e9x.

Everything is big, Bloated and uninspired. Quality and looks has gone to crap IMO.

They need to make the rear larger so they can fit all those alphanumerics

Still i can't like the lights touching the grills, infact for me the best cars in the current lineup have standard lights: 2er, 5er and 6er.
Agreed and agreed again

Oh boy, what did they do to the X6?


It looks aweful. Current X6 is so sleek and sporty, this gen is looking like an Aztek.
