You’ve read about it earlier in the day, now BMW Malaysia has officially announced the arrival of the facelifted X6, which it says will be in BMW dealerships nationwide from this Saturday, 14 July.

The X6 LCI will be available in xDrive35i form, which means a 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine with 306 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The twin-turbo engine is mated to an eight-speed sports automatic transmission with steering paddles. Dynamic Performance Control is part of the xDrive AWD system. It electronically controls power distribution to optimise stability, traction and dynamic performance.

Looks wise, the X6’s kidney grills gets a “three-dimensional chrome frame” and newly designed bars that are angled in the lower section. As mentioned earlier, the facelift comes with white corona rings that aren’t full circles. An upgrade from the standard bi-xenons, the X6 is fitted with Adaptive LED headlights. The light sources for low and high beam light are LED units positioned on a horizontal bar at its centre, feeding their light into the reflectors in front.

Meanwhile, the fog lights with matte surrounds are now spaced apart on the front apron along the upper section of the air inlets. These, and the new L-shaped LED taillights, emphasise the X6’s width.

Moving inside, all-new Nevada leather is standard, and there’s an optional Vermillion Red finish for those looking for something different. BMW ConnectedDrive, Head-Up Display, rear-view camera with Top View, Navigation System Professional as well as extended Bluetooth functions featuring Bluetooth office, Bluetooth Audio Streaming and on-board internet are all standard.
