The New 2012 BMW X6 (Video)

Have a brief look at the new BMW X6 and watch the highlights of the Sports Activity Coupé: Selective modifications in design and innovative equipment features.

Since its market launch, more than 150,000 of the Sporty Activity Coupé were sold within approximately three years. This far exceeded the original plans and shows the impressive confirmation of the unusual vehicle concept.

Top gear's review of this car is classic, too much of a car to do anything SUV like and too much of an SUV to do anything car like. Just kinda sucks at both.

I have always liked the way this "Coupe-eh?" looks, but I don't buy cars for looks. I would always choose the X5 over this given.

Should I have been saying "coo-PAY" for the last 41 years? Is that right?

It gives a new meaning to the phrase "the elephant in the room" a new meaning

I like it, like Jimmy said not too drastic of a change but still an eye catcher. Going on a week since its departed though

That's what 94% of SUV owners buy an SUV for. To drive it like a car but have the utility available even though it is never used for more than passenger occupancy...

What's with the narrator? Creepy voice affectations, bizarre accent. It's almost as if it were synthesized by the horrific BMW voice control module. Half expecting him to say "Mr. Andersonnnnn!!!"

Looks awesome. Did not care for the design when the X6 was first introduced, but it has grown on me.

I like the X6. It's a very distinctive design, even if it departs from the BMW ethos a little bit.

As a Colorado guy, I see the appeal. It's a sport coupe, sort of, yet with all wheel drive and better ground clearance for the snow.

I would drive one.
