    Basically, BMW's new "whatever", in concept form (aka nice rims and fancy interior). God knows what they call it. Coupe-wagon-SUV-sedan-crossover. Basically a tall 5 Series hatchback. I think it's ugly. And I hate how BMW is diluting the brand with these "me too" cars.

    The trunk hatch thing is cool, but they stole the idea from the Skoda Octavia. So it's not exactly revolutionary.

    Opps - it's the Skoda Superb, not the Octavia.

    BMW engineering = excellent
    BMW aesthetics = sub-par (not all cases; see e92 M3 ;) )

    Looks just like the X6?

    I hate when they use the term coupe for a 4 door...

    That's a weird thing to say seeing as how virtually all their designs are revolutionary and copied by all the other manufacturers. I can't think of any other brand over the last 30 years that has more design cues stolen or mimicked than BMW. Even those that jump on the bash Bangle bandwagon can't deny his influence on designs from the 90's and 00's especially with Jap brands.

    I agree - but this one just looks a bit bloated. While I've long been a fan of BMWs, only recently have I in any way not liked their looks. Mainly centered around the first Bangle 7-Series, and the Z3. The 7-Series has been copied a lot - but I think all the copies successfully achieved what that design was getting at, but didn't get quite right.

    I should state that I actually like the looks of the X6 - but think it's a stupid concept.

    I think that it looks horrible in that color. I've seen a black x6 around town and it looks really sharp

    fugly. I hate X6 as well. They are both epic fails by BMW.

    I love their new 3 liter twin turbo engines. It feels like a supercharged car. No lag whatsoever

    No - this is the last car he'll have had a hand in designing.
