BMW Australia is gearing up to introduce the facelifted 2015 BMW 6 Series LCI, which lands locally in June. All variants come with more standard equipment, a freshened up design, and various interior refinements.
Buyers will continue to be offered three body styles for the 6 Series, including the coupe, convertible and the four-door Gran Coupe. Most come in ‘40i’ and ‘50i’ petrol form, while the Gran Coupe is also available with the ‘40d’ turbo-diesel.
New standard features across the board include adaptive LED headlights, digital radio, lane change warning, parking assistance, and the Driving Assistance Plus package. The 650i versions also get 20-inch alloy wheels.
In terms of exterior changes, there’s a new front grille layout incorporating updated kidney grilles, a new lower apron section and matching side trimmings, and of course the new LED headlights. Inside, there’s a full leather dashboard with high-quality surfaces all around.
Mechanically, BMW engineers has revamped the suspension setup to offer more precise handling without compromising ride comfort. There’s also a new sports exhaust system to allow the engines to sing a more enticing note. BMW Group head of product and market planning Shawn Ticehurst said,
