With the Detroit Auto Show scheduled for January 2015 BMW has decided to make sure they scrub up as best as possible or at least the entire 6 Series range which has been given minor styling updates.
Pretty much every thing remains the same so far as the eye can tell the engine lineup, trim grades and so on, except for the interior which now offers better refinement and surface materials.
The exterior styling details include a re-profiled front and rear bumper, blink and you will miss it kidney grille revisions and new headlights with LED technology. The addition of new alloy wheel designs top off the list of changes.
BMW has tweaked the engine lineup which are now EU6 compliant, fuel economy is slightly improved by as much as makes little difference. More importantly the 0-62mph dash for the 650i 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 has been reduced from 4,6 seconds too 4.3 seconds for all body-styles. Just thought you would like to know about that.
Stop/start, and an Eco pro mode with engine costing technology now come as standard through out the range. All petrol models will have a sports exhaust system with a switchable valve which lowers or can add a more intense “timbre” to the engine soundtrack.
Through features such as Dynamic Damper Control, Active Drive and Integral Active Steering, owners are now able to create a made-to-measure driving experience, while the latest BMW Head-Up Display and Driving Assistant Plus with Active Cruise Control minimise distractions and supplement the driver’s reactions to enhance safety.
The 640d is expected to be the best seller and now offers 309bhp and 629Nm of torque and again slightly improved economy figures of 54mpg while C02 emissions are down too 146g/km.
The 6 Series range will go on sale in the UK from 1st March 2015.
