BMW India kickstarts 2015 X6 Luxury Crossover imports

The second generation, 2015 BMW X6 Luxury Crossover, which was unveiled earlier this year and also showcased at the ongoing Paris Motor Show, will be launched in India by the middle of next year. BMW India has already kickstarted the import of the 2015 X6 40d to India through the completely built unit (CBU) route. Imports of the 2015 X6 crossover might have to do with homologation, ahead of its market launch next year. Currently, sales of the first generation X6 crossover have been discontinued in India and new orders have been put on hold until the arrival of the new model.

BMW used to sell the X6 luxury crossover in India with a 3 liter, in-line 6 turbo diesel engine. The recently imported 2015 X6 crossovers also use the same engine in 306 Bhp-600 Nm state of tune, which indicates that BMW India is planning to stick to this engine for the new model as well. An 8 speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters will be standard on the India-spec 2015 X6, which will also feature the xDrive all wheel drive system. The car is capable of hitting an electronically limited top speed of 250 Kph, with the 0-100 Kph run notched up in a sportscar-like 6 seconds.

The second generation, 2015 X6 comes with revised styling at the front and the rear while managing to retain the trademark coupe styling that makes it a very unique vehicle in the luxury crossover market. In India, expect the 2015 X6’s pricing to be pegged close to the 1 crore rupee mark as and when the crossover is launched next year. In terms of features, the 2015 BMW X6 xDrive 40d brings the following to the table,

  • Bi-Xenon headlamps
  • 19 inch alloy wheels as standard
  • Automatic tailgate with automatic soft touch closing as an option for all door
  • Leather seats and four zone climate control
  • BMW’s ConnectedDrive package
  • 40:20:40 split for the middle row seats
  • Bang & Olufsen Stereo
  • Optional adaptive LED headlamps
  • 10.25-inch flatscreen Control Display with iDrive
