Rendering: 2015 BMW X6 3-Door

The 2015 BMW X6 may have only just been revealed but that hasn’t stopped renderer X-Tomi Design from working his magic and creating a 3-door variant of the car!

While it is unlikely that BMW will create a 3-door X6 considering it didn’t for the first generation car, it is still interesting to see how the design of the new X6 would work with two fewer doors and we must say, it looks quite good!

When compared to the current X6, the new one is 32 mm longer, 6 mm wider and 33 mm taller. Importantly however, the wheelbase has remained unchanged with it totalling 2933 mm. Thanks to the extra size of the car, luggage space with the rear seats in place is up by 10 litres to 580 litres while that figure grows to 1525 litres with the rear seats folded in a 40:20:40 configuration. All up, an additional 75 litres of luggage space is available which will be perfect for many X6 owners.

When the new BMW X6 launches later this year, it will initially be offered in three different trim levels. Further down the road, additional variations will be added. The entry-level car is the xDrive30d with it featuring a 3.0-litre straight-six cylinder diesel engine delivering 255 hp. Following the xDrive30d is the tri-turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six diesel from the M50d. This powertrain delivers 376 hp and more importantly, 740 Nm of torque. Finally, the current range-topping xDrive50i delivers a brutal 443 hp from its 4.4-litre bi-turbo V8 petrol engine. All three of these models come standard in all-wheel drive configuration with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
