how can you make any decision. The car is still camo. and who knows what the final will look like. I think it looks pretty good. Looks like a sporty SUV and similar to the Murano.

Like the E90 then the E92, we'll hate all the spypics and then love the unmasked car.

I really don't like what I see, but BMW has a habit of surprising me with the final product. Thanks for sharing though - I didn't know this was in development.

I'm sure the camo makes it look uglier than it is without, but I can't say it doesn't resemble the Pontiac Aztek in this photo.

I can't see this selling a huge amount. Unless it is lower or in the middle of the X5 and X3.

It seems to closely resemble the following rendering from carmagazine.co.uk:

It does look great IMO, and they don't plan on selling a lot of them either, bcs their positioning will be above the X5. It will sport the twin turbo 306 hp engine and the 4.8 V8 and be tuned for sport rather any pretense at utility.

I guess that it will sell at 20,000 units per year and make a ton of money for BMW since it is 75% off the X5 platform. Someone looking for a winter car for their 6 series will find this attractive.

How true - AMC must turning in their corporate grave-as they were first out with a cross-over.

The headlights look sick. They should have put those on the E92. Very aggresive.

I like the photos here.

The front reminds me a little of the Porsche Cayenne.

I'm very interested in this car - I currently drive an 05 X5 3.0. My sister has a 335 convertible which is SICK, very fast, very nice - but every time I drive it I miss the height and spaciousness of my X5. The X6 is the perfect compromise for me. Sports car performance with SUV presence, height and visibility (I know it's not 100% of both, hence compromise).

I will get one come march when my lease is up, so long as it's not TOO pricey.
