When BMW engineers took a much-needed break from the 128-degree weather in Death Valley, they were kind enough to unlatch the hatch of the new X6 for KPG's spies to shoot away.
The pics reveal that the heavy plastic cladding on the rear end disguises more air than sheet metal, with the steep rake of the windscreen plummeting towards the taillights. Even more worrying than the massive blind spots created by the camo, is the roofline that takes a serious plunge aft of the B-pillar, destined to seriously limit headroom for passengers relegated to the rear. As KPG's peeps on the pavement point out, it's form relentlessly beating function with a stick – something that CLS back-seat passengers have already gotten used to.

      Reminds me of a Toyota Matrix or a Dodge Caliber... Except with a longer rear end.

      From what I can see the front end looks great.

      What's with that flappy back end? What were they thinking with those taillights? BMWs test mules are just getting uglier and uglier. I'll never buy another BMW ever just because I don't like how this heavily camo'ed mule looks.

      Hey! I know! Let's pass judgement on this thing's appearance while the camo cladding is still in place!

      How can you possibly dismiss this before seeing it first?

      Oh well, better than the Left Lane comments, I guess. At least no one here is trying to say that the X3 was made to compete with the Mercedes ML.

      The Cayenne doesn't look so bad now, eh?

      I squeezed out something that looked like it into my toilet this morning.
