  The next generation BMW X6 luxury crossover SUV is now made available for sale in Kuwait by Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, the authorized distributor of BMW vehicles in the region. Just like its predecessor, the 2015 BMW X6 is launched in two trim options namely xDrive35i and xDrive50i. The standard xDrive35i carries a 3.0 litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine producing up to 306 horsepower and 400 Nm torque, while the high performance xDrive50i is powered by a 4.4 litre turbocharged V8 engine with an output boosted to 450 horsepower and 650 Nm torque. Both these engines are coupled to a new eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission for smooth driving and maximum handling. The second generation BMW X6 arrives with a new interior, redesigned exterior and exciting new features. The standard equipment on the outside includes restyled headlights with bi-xenon lamps and 19-inch light alloy wheels, which were only available as optional in previous models. Similarly, the driver cabin features all leather trim, auto-dimming rearview mirror, split-folding rear seat and dual-zone climate control. Besides, BMW Kuwait is also offering additional styling and performance packages for a more contented and personalized driving experience. It is anticipated that the new BMW X6 will receive similar appreciation in the Kuwaiti market, as in rest of the world.
