Competition for the Mercedes R Class. BMW is looking to take market share (from the 10 Mercedes is selling per year).

I don't think it's X6, this car is much smaller. Look at the last picture where you can see people behind it.

X6 is bigger than an X5.

Clarity on the pix, jus in case anyone is out of the loop...

Jus wanna make sure that everyone is on par here.
The reason it loos like that is because those are spy shots. When a manufacturer takes a concept car on public road for first time, its not to show the public but to test the vehicles limits to see what else must be changed and/or to see if the vehicle should even make it to production. So the manufacturer cover the headlights/tailights and some other skins of automobile so the competition won't try to come up with something similar, for example how chinese branded vehicles have poor taste or a replica copies of other vehicles from other brands (with there own little tweaks).

In my opinion it looks like it will compete with a saab, opel, renault or maybe the subaru wrx (lol).
