Interestingly enough it no longer borrows the X5's grille, as this one doesn't descend as low as the licence plate and is filled with fewer slats.

Yes indeed...Kidneys do seem smaller on the G06 X6....Maybe BMW caught so much grief about the Kidneys on the X7 and G05 X5...they downsized on the new X6.... :-)

Having seen the new 8er and now this X6, one might speculate that BMW wants to set their coupé/SAC models apart from their sedan SAV/counterparts with lower and sleeker grilles. However the new X4 got the same high grille as the X3, and we do know that the next 4er will have a huge vertical grille borrowed from the 3.0 CSL Hommage Concept. So there doesn't seem to be any consistency as to exactly which model types do and which do not get these new high grilles BMW has been introducing, rather they seem to be following a case-by-case design policy.

Looks like the X6 will retain the traditional L taillights unlike the inverted L of the new X5 and E92.

Front end looks to me like the new X5 from the bottom of the grill up, and a 6GT M Sport underneath.

I prefer the classic round exhaust pipe tips of the X4.

GLE Coupe and Q8 are way better looking. BMW has never been able to get the X6 right.

The front we know will look very similar to the X5 but if the rear is a more aggressive and muscular X4 rear, it's going to be the winner in my books.

While I do like the looks of the GLC and GLE Coupes, the Q8? The Q8 just looks like a big Q5 with a ridiculously, hideously oversized grill. Doesn't look "coupe-ish" at all, I'd take the new X5 or X7 over the Q8, let alone the X6.

Except the first gen which was under Chris Bangle's team.
First Generation X6 still looks the best IMO design-wise and stance.

I just assumed that people bought them because they had great lease deals or they lost a bet.

As it has been stated many times, looks are subjective.

I, and many others think the X6 looks better, inside AND out, than the GLE Coupe.

Then there are those who prefer the looks of something else.

Variety is a good thing. Keeps things fresh and keeps competition on their toes.

That is a good question... probably because size wise it fits between the X5 and X7....

The Merc's interior is garbage. It's a dinosaur designed during the glorious Chrysler era. Terrible design, terrible material quality.

Makes sense. However, ultra large/luxury SAV couple is not a bad idea. People nowadays buy anything that is called SUV.. they should have made it more special since everyone is catching up now! Hence Q8.

BMW started this segment and it could have redefine it like they did with the 8.

Crap, looks like they're gonna do the same thing they did with the X4 and try to graft the rear lights from the Z4 and 8 Series onto the back of it

As was stated earlier, I think the E71 looks much better than the F16 and this looks like it'll look worse than both of those. I wish they wouldn't be copying the disgusting Merc trend of trying to mush the same rear light shape into each body style, it really doesn't work
