BMW X6 designer Tommy Forsgren refused to confirm or deny the prospects of coming out with a cabriolet version.

 

Romanian magazine ProMotor had the opportunity to sit down and have a chat with BMW designer Tommy Forsgren who was in charge of styling the second generation X6 Sports Activity Coupe (SAV). When asked whether there's ever going to be a cabriolet version of the X6, the designer provided a rather elusive answer: "I can't tell you anything about that."

 

Taking into account he didn't flat out deny an X6 Cabrio, one can speculate that BMW is contemplating with the idea of chopping off the SAV's metal roof to turn it into Bavaria's Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet but obviously with better results. Those who are on the look for a convertible crossover will have to wait until next year when Land Rover will introduce the Range Rover Evoque Cabrio.

As a final note, Tommy Forsgren is established in United States but is originally from Sweden and aside from drawing the X6 he was also responsible for the "i" badge of the i3 and i8 models.
