On the exterior front the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe comes with a number of new style cues. Both the front and back will now come with redesigned bumpers. The kidney grilles have been restyled along with some brand projector headlamps with LED DRLs. The 2015 model also comes with slightly bigger exhaust embellishments, new sporty multi-spoke alloy wheels, more aerodynamic side mirrors with integrated indicators and new LED fog lights.
Inside, it is quite likely that the cabin will remain unchanged but we might see some brand new dual-tone upholstery. Also the cabin is likely to get some LED treatment as well, with illuminated foot wells, door exits and glove compartments. Apart from these most of the comfort and convenience features have been taken from the old version.
Under the hood you’ll find that the Indian version sports the same 3.0-litre, inline six-cylinder diesel unit that churns out 313 PS at 4,400 rpm and 630 Nm of peak-torque which comes into play between 1,500 – 2,500 rpm. The car is paired to a an 8-speed automatic transmission and can do a 0-100 kmph sprint in 5.2-seconds with a top speed of 250 kmph.
