The X6 M has a typical BMW front with the usual kidney grille flanked by large LED headlights. A sporty front bumper with massive intakes differentiates the X6 M from the other trims in the range. The side profile changes slightly depending on whether it's sitting on 20- or 21-inch wheels. The indicator lights seem to flow from the wheel arches, giving it a fluid and unique look. Most notable is the trademark sloping roof. At the rear, the large, dominant taillight clusters sit under a minimalist spoiler, and symmetrical quad exhaust pipes complete the look.
The X6 M is based on the X5 platform but is a bit wider and sits slightly lower. It has a length of 193.8 inches, resting on a wheelbase of 115.5 inches, longer by a fraction than both the Mercedes GLE and the Porsche Cayenne. Standing 66.5 inches tall, and with a width of 78.3 inches, the X6 M is on the larger side of the segment, though not as tall as its Merc counterpart. It has a curb weight of 5,185 lbs, significantly heavier than the Porsche, yet slightly less bulky than the GLE. With 8.1 inches of ground clearance, the BMW X6 is one-up on both core rivals.
