BMW has released first pictures and details of its facelifted X6, X5M and X6M

The BMW X6 has been updated. The major changes include a revised front end with a wider chrome-framed grille, repositioned foglights with silver surrounds as well as three new colours: Orion Silver, Midnight Blue and Marrakech Brown.

At the rear are revised light clusters with a pair of horizontal LEDs, again to emphasise the SUV’s width. Inside, there are two new upholstery colour choices: Ivory White Nappa Leather and Vermillion Red Nevada Leather.

BMW's high-performance M 4x4s have also been facelifted. Both the X5M and X6M now have blue aluminium brake calipers and are the first BMWs to have Adaptive LED headlights as standard equipment. The X6M also adds a Powerdome bonnet. 

The facelift coincides with the launch of the diesel M Performance models. They arrive in showrooms in June, with X6 prices starting from £46,725 for the 3.0d, and rising to £85,680 for the X6M. The X5M costs £83,260.
