We bring you the very first spy pics of the next generation BMW X6 M (F96)!

Like the current X6 M, the next gen F96 X6 M will share the same engine (S63) as the upcoming X5 M (F95). Both models may receive a small power bump over the F90 M5, which already boasts 600 HP.

On to the pics.

PZero tires. Interesting. Wonder if that's just for testing or signaling a switch from Michelin

As has been noticed on earlier spyshots, the X6's regular (non M) grille is vertically narrower and more ventilated (6 slats per kidney instead of 7) than the X5's.

I don't mind the current X6 actually but this looks like it's improving upon the shape even more with a sleeker overall profile. Looks like it could be a winner going from an alright design to an actually good-looking car. Let's see

X4 and X6 side-by-side.

Just test drove the 2019 X4, it has increased in size but has decrease in weight.

X4 and X6 side-by-side in same paint color.

2019 X4 behind that the X6. Honestly there was not much difference in size. I would never need anything bigger than the new X4.

But here's a photo showing a comparison.


I'm hoping that the X4M & X6M come with some really cool M Rims.

YESSSSSS! They finally did fender flares on the X6M! Previous gens looked so goofy without it.

Exactly. I wonder why. I favored the traditional exhaust location.

Is it to deviate from the Sedans/Coupes?

As the X3/4 M are similar to this, a design change is apparently on the way. Interesting!

Can some one tell me why we need 7 different types of SUV's?

Half of them are virtual copies of each other with slight differences.
