All of you must be thinking what is new in the 2013 X6? Well I would say BMW has not brought any drastic changes but minor yet significant changes are noticeable. While the changes are visible on the exteriors of the car, the company has left the interiors untouched.

Technical Specifications

Once again nothing new is available under the hood except a “M Sport” option. Do not relate M Sport with X6 M, as the former is a small power package that increases the car’s power and torque by 15 BHP and 41 Nm respectively for the six-cylinder engine and 40 BHP and 41 Nm respectively for the V8 engine. Beside this the package also includes 20 inch alloy wheels, black chrome exhaust tips, stainless steel pedals, M  door sill cover strips etc.
