Updated 2015 BMW 6 Series revealed with a new face [video]

BMW has revealed facelifted versions of the third-generation 6 Series coupé, cabriolet and GranCoupé, all three of course with M6 versions as well.

The changes are very small and it really takes a trained eye or a true BMW superfan to notice the updates.

The biggest and most notable change for 2015 is an updated front end with a sharper look. The updated front bumper now has nine slats in the kidney grille instead of ten on the outgoing model.

All model versions also get standard Adaptive full-LED headlights with a slightly more angular shape.

There are also new side mirrors with integrated indicators, a revised front air dam, LED foglights and updated side window surrounds on the four-door model.

New colour choices include Jatoba metallic, Cashmere Silver metallic, Glacier Silver metallic, Mediterranean Blue metallic and Melbourne Red metallic.

The interior has higher-quality surface materials, a new optional two-colour leather trims, latest head-up display function and LEDs replacing some of the interior lighting.

Engine range carries over from the 2014 model year, but with improvement in efficiency bringing EU6 compliance across the line-up while also improving very little acceleration, in-gear performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The petrol engine range also receive a sports exhaust with a switchable flap as standard.

BMW’s xDrive four-wheel drive system is also available across the range, adding 75kg to the kerb weight.

The range topping M6 coupé, cabriolet and GranCoupé continue to use the same twin-turbocharged 552bhp 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine with 501lb ft of torque linked seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and electronically controlled M-differential. The M6 models are all rear-wheel drive.

The updated M6 coupé goes from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds on its way to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Combined fuel consumption is 28.5mpg with CO2 emissions of 231g/km.

The optional Competition Package raises peak power by 15bhp to 567bhp, resulting in a 0.1sec improvement in 0-62mph acceleration.

The updated 6 Series will debut next month at the Detroit motor show with UK sales starting soon after.
