There might be several auto brands in the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) category, but the one that always rings a bell is the 2020 BMW X6 M50i. The reason for this is not farfetched. Before the debut of the ride, not much was said about SAVs or crossover coupes as some people like to call them. The BMW X6 literally created the category, paving way for other brands to come in.

The story of BMW X6 M50i SAV

First generation of the X6 was birthed about 11 years ago. Saying it was a success would be putting it modestly. It was well-received by the masses, generating massive sales. Such a success was irresistible to rivals like Audi and Mercedes-Benz. In no time, they brought their own brands on the market to get a piece of the cake with the Q8 and GLE coupe respectively. Many other automakers were not left out. The market was soon flooded with SAVs.

BMW unveiled its third generation of the BMW X6 at the ongoing annual Frankfurt Motor Show for the year. By its aggressive look, it was obvious that the model was not there to play. It boasts of newly designed lighting units, larger grille, sloping roofline, thin spoilers and a host of other features to complement its big-bodied outlook.

The interior of the X6 shares some similarities with that of the most recent X5. BMW did not lower their standards in terms of quality material as it is on the high side. The digital instrument cluster and infotainment have a display size of 12.3 inches.

Some of the interior features include: four-zone climate control, diamond premium sound system, panoramic glass roof, head-up display, cooled up and heated holders.

The X6 has so much to offer in performance. According to BMW, the M50i badge visible on the exterior represents the 4.4 liter V8 twin-turbo engine present in the hood. The M50i will be the poster-boy for the X6 segment until the arrival of the X6 M.

First stop for the X6 debut is the United States with a starting price of $65,295 (₦23.6 million) for its regular trim and $86,645 (₦31.4 million) for the M50i.
