A range of new BMW car parts could soon be on the market after the manufacturer unveiled a new-look X6.

The popular model, which BMW claims is the world's first "sports activity coupe", has been given a number of aesthetic upgrades at the front and rear, as well as a range of new engine options.

At the front, the facelifted X6 features a more prominent front grille, with the lower bars now set at an angle to create a more striking "three-dimensional" appearance, according to BMW, while the front fog lights are now set in matt finish surrounds.

"Precisely modified details in the front view give the new BMW X6 an appearance characterised by exclusive athleticism and supremacy," claimed the manufacturer.

The rear has also been redesigned to offer more "intense styling", with the rear lights now horizontally aligned in a manner designed to emphasise the car's width and create a better flow between the side and back sections of the vehicle.

Under the bonnet, BMW will be offering a number of different petrol and diesel engine options.

These include the xDrive50i V8, which will provide 407bhp, and the 306bhp 6-cylinder xDrive35i petrol engine.

The manufacturer will also be releasing a special BMW M GmbH edition of the new X6 which will see the car reconfigured to offer extra high performance.
It will feature a 408 kW/555bhp V8 engine, a 6-speed M Sport automatic transmission, specially developed suspension and a number of design and equipment extras relative to the standard models.T

he new X6 range is due to go on sale in the UK in June.

Earlier this month, the BMW Group, which also owns Mini and Rolls-Royce, announced that it set a new record for vehicle sales in 2011.

The company shifted a total of 1,668,982 vehicles last year, including an increase of almost 13 per cent in the number of BMW-branded cars sold.
