It also gets four-zone automatic climate control, thermoelectric cup holders, a panoramic glass roof, ambient interior air freshening package and a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond with 3D surround sound system.
The X6 is available in four trims and the top-spec petrol variant gets a 4.4-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 engine which makes 523 PS of maximum power and 750 Nm of peak torque. Its diesel counterpart is a 3.0-litre, inline-six, twin-turbocharged unit that makes 400 PS of maximum power and 760 Nm of peak torque. All engines are mated to the same 8-speed automatic transmission.
The X6 will carry a price bracket between Rs 44 lakhs for the base model to Rs 50 lakhs for the top trim (all prices, ex-showroom) and will be pitted against the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, among others.
