Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, the exclusive importer for BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce in Kuwait, has launched the new BMW X6, the second generation of the sports activity coupé.
The new BMW X6, featuring generous interior space and a luxurious ambience, attractive design and equipment packages, has already posted global sales of almost 250,000 units, a statement said.
“The BMW X6, with its unique design that combines power and athleticism with luxury and elegance has clearly become one of the most desired cars in this region,” said Yousef Al Qatami, general manager of Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company.
“With the arrival of the second generation model, I am confident that it will enhance our X6 and overall X model sales that compete in the SUV segment even further,” he added.
Also available from launch are model-specific features from BMW Individual.
The new BMW X6 comes with a suitably exclusive roster of standard equipment, which goes beyond that of the previous model: bi-xenon headlights, 19-inch light-alloy wheels, automatic tailgate operation and the 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission with steering wheel shift paddles are all included, as are leather trim, two-zone climate control and auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
Lending functionality an extra boost are the 40: 20: 40 split/folding rear seat backrests, which allow load compartment capacity to expand from 580 litres to as much as 1,525 litres (75 litres more than the predecessor model.)
The line-up of engines available in Kuwait includes the latest-generation V8 developing 450 hp for the BMW X6 xDrive50i and the BMW X6 xDrive35i 306 hp.

For improved dynamics, xDrive can optionally link up with adaptive suspension packages, including Dynamic Performance Control.
For increased performance, Dynamic Performance Control is offered together with Dynamic Drive active roll stabilisation as part of the Dynamic adaptive suspension package to deliver a targeted improvement in the car’s sporty handling attributes. Further enhanced ride comfort can be achieved thanks to of air suspension at the rear axle and Dynamic Damper Control, which are included in both the Comfort adaptive suspension package and Adaptive M suspension (part of the M Sport package), which also offers bespoke, sports-oriented suspension tuning. The Professional adaptive suspension package, meanwhile, combines the features of Comfort and Dynamic.
