New 2019 BMW X6

BMW just launched a new X6, a luxury crossover coupe. This kind of vehicle, with less funcionality than an equivalent crossover with formal roof (in this case the BMW X5) is gaining customers that looks for exlusivity . The new crossover coupe segment is the equivalent of the "personal luxury coupe" from the 60s-70s-80s. Lincoln must enter this segment with a vehicle that recaptures the legacy of the luxury personal coupe of the Mark series.


In a world without cars, a coupe crossover is the flagship for a luxury brand.


Here the new Bimmer....

Still one of the ugly ones. Audi over this, any day.

I agree . BMW is abusign of the scoops like Pontiac in its last years.


I like the general form of these cars, with the raked rear window... but the details are over done.

Re: New 2019 BMW X6

It's too squared up and linear for my liking. Doesn't match the sleek profile, IMO.

Sad when the Cayenne Coupe actually looks svelte next to this thing.

Re: New 2019 BMW X6

Here the "personal luxury coupe" from Audi, the Q8 in its sportiest version, the SQ8. Definitely , the german designers lost the way of good taste. This vehicle, with that big, ordinary and ugly grille transmit anything except "luxury". Imagine Lincoln do it the rigth way, in the form of an Aviator coupe.... could be a great car and a great success.


The pics of the Audi...

The Cayenne coupe is a beautiful vehicle, compared with the Audi and BMW counterparts.





But, my favorite personal luxury coupe from Germany is the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Simple and elegant:
