Since the unveiling of the BMW CS Concept in 2007, many car magazines, blogs, or just online/offline media in general, tried to use the CS Concept as a base for all the future BMW designs. We have seen the next generation 2012 BMW 3 Series being portrayed as a mini CS, the new 5 Series, 7 Series and you name it…
And of course, the 2010 BMW 6 Series could not have been excluded from this silly game. The German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, just published in their latest edition, new renderings of the next 6er. And do you want to guess? It says CS Concept all over them!!!
I mean, come on guys, a little bit of imagination here, not all the bimmers will be a mini, medium or large CS. Try to focus a little bit on the recent design language and take it from there, forget about the CS for a second. The concept was supposed to be the flagship of BMW’s fleet, not a model that will inspire all the designs, from 1 Series and up.
But let us share with them what we know about the 2011 6 Series: BMW will not be drastically changing the current successful design, the headlights will be similar to the ones on the CS Concept, but will not have the circular cut out, just a straight across slit. So yes, the headlights will resemble a bit the CS, but it stops there.
Longer than today’s model, the 2010 6-Series will offer more legroom for rear passengers. At the same time, it will get a sportier cockpit with a more driver oriented console layout. We also learned that the convertible will be offered with a folding hardtop, like the new 3-Series convertible.
So, remember: NOT a drastic change in the new design!
