The BMW 6-Series is offered in Coupe, Cabriolet and 4-door GranCoupe body styles all of which have been accepted well in the market. As the last revision for the 6-Series range was done in 2012, it was due for an update. BMW has now officially released the 2018 6-Series, although it’s hard to see the changes.

The new 6-series gets an update in the form of an extended M-Sport package. Some bits and bobs of the package which was reserved for the full-fledged M model are now offered on the normal range of 6-Series cars as well. The double-spoke 20-inch M bi-colour wheels shod with run-flat tyres are a new option. The new 6-Series will also come with an option to choose the carbon-fibre interior trim which was reserved earlier for the M model only. A new shade of paint called the “sonic speed blue metallic” is available. If these don’t excite you, BMW will give you a chance to customise each 6-Series by offering a huge list of options via the BMW Individual catalog.

The mechanicals will remain the same on all three body styles, though. So the tried and tested pair of engines, the 3.0-litre 315 hp V6 and the 4.4-litre 445 hp V8, will be retained in the 640i and 650i respectively. Power will be sent to the rear wheels as standard while optional xDrive all-wheel-drive is available.

The 6-Series family is expected to grow by one in 2018 as rumours suggest that the next generation of the 5-Series GranTurismo will be promoted to the 6-Series lineup. But confirmation on that will only be available after BMW has revealed its intentions officially. The 2018 6-Series is expected to hit showrooms by late 2017.
