The new X6 is being imported to India as a completely built-up unit (CBU).
BMW established the SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) segment with the introduction of the X6 and still continues its remarkable success story. The uniqueness of the third generation X6 is born from its modern expressive design which combines athletic and elegant coupe lines with the dynamism of a BMW X model. From the coupe-like roofline to the chiseled profile, this SAC is marked by extraordinary craftsmanship and sends a message of power and prestige. – Arlindo Teixeira, acting President, BMW Group India
