The car body is made in the style familiar to the X-series. The changes affected the entire front part. The radiator grill has become larger and received clear chopped edges. Another highlight was the illumination of the central air intake fins. Therefore, the car can be recognized even at night.

The sloping body shape gives the kupesh a sportiness. A split spoiler is installed at the rear of the roof. And the rear bumper is adorned with a stylish diffuser for a complete look.

How does the car go?

As you'd expect, the German manufacturer has equipped the car with a large number of assistants. This includes assistants for the start of the hill, control of blind spots, keeping in the lane and emergency braking. In more expensive trim levels there is an assistant for avoiding an accident (warning of a possible frontal and side collision).

The car behaves confidently when cornering. This is achieved by the Dynamic Handing system, which stabilizes the roll angle of the car. Therefore, performing a turn, the X-6 "bites" into the asphalt and demonstrates excellent stability until the maneuver is over. And the air suspension will make the ride comfortable on any type of road.
