BMW has given its X6 Sports Activity Coupe a refresh for the 2020 model year, updating the famous kidney grille and its crossover design to keep in line with its current automotive aesthetic.

The new BMW X6 is even bigger than before, measuring at five meters long and two meters wide. BMW recently unveiled the Vision M Next concept supercar, and it seems the X6 has taken a number of design cues from its low-slung sibling such as the illuminated kidney grille design and a set of LED laser lights that are both thin yet powerful.

BMW’s range-leading X6 M50i gets a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 526 BHP and 553 lb-ft of torque. Paired with an advanced four-wheel-drive system, the engine can propel the over two-tonne X6 from 0-62 MPH in just 4.3 seconds. The M50i also gets an M Sport exhaust system, active dampers and a power steering mode exclusive to the M-Sport version.

There will also be a host of subtler, family-friendly engines, such as 395 BHP 3.0-liter diesel, a 3.0-liter 336 BHP straight-six petrol and an entry-level xDrive30d with a 3.0-liter 260 BHP unit. Regardless of which variant you opt for, all X6’s will come equipped with a four-wheel-drive system that has a RWD bias when pushing the power, roll stabilization, active steering, as well as an optional air suspension and off-road pack.

Take a look at the new-and-improved BMW X6 — featuring its wider body kit, futuristic light set up and 22-inch rims — in the gallery above. Prices start at £59,340 GBP (approx. $74,600 USD) for the 30d Sport, rising to £76,870 GBP (approx. $96,600 USD) for the M50i.

In other news, a 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL “Batmobile” is heading to the auction block.
