DriveSpark's Thoughts On The Launch Of The New BMW X6 xDrive35i M Sport At Auto Expo 2018
The BMW X6 xDrive35i M Sport is the petrol variant of BMW's X6 SUV coupe crossover. While it may not be as quick as the diesel xDrive40d variant, the massive drop (a drop of over 30 lakhs compared to the diesel) in price should open up a whole lot more cheque books for BMW.
