The renderings follow recent rumors around a sleeker and sportier design of the popular high-end tourer. The new 6er is said to have a more dynamic roofline than the current model and shallower glasshouse. Some of the sleek design cues seen on the 4 Series Coupe are an inspiration for the larger two-door model with a stretched roofline which puts the C-pillar just behind the rear wheels and allows a short rear overhang. Some suggest it will have the visual dynamics of an Aston Martin.
Front kidney grilles shown here are upturned as a reverse from standard BMWs. The headlights take an ultra slim shape with laser lights incorporated while the taillights are sleeker and larger.
Side air breathers and large air intakes are a continuation of BMW’s present design, along with plenty of chrome elements for a more luxurious look.
The new 6 Series will go on a diet for a total weight saving of around 200 kilograms. The rear axle comes from the new 7 Series, but xDrive all-wheel drive will continue to be offered. The 6 Series family remains in the conventional mix of fabric roof convertible, coupe and a four-seater Gran Coupe.
