For 2016, all new BMW 6 Series models get a refreshed nose and tail, plus interior enhancements like a new steering wheel and revised center console with BMW's newest touch-pad iDrive controller. A new active exhaust system lets the engine sing when the car is in Sport or Sport+ mode.
The new 2015 BMW Alpina B6 xDrive Gran Coupe offers more performance than the 650i xDrive, but more luxury than the M6 Gran Coupe. Alpina, by the way, is a 3rd-party high-performance BMW tuner, working so closely with BMW that its cars are sold in BMW dealerships.
About BMW 6 Series
The 2016 BMW 6 Series is a car lineup unto itself, with coupe, convertible and even a 4-door model that BMW calls a "Gran Coupe," but we all know is really just a sleek sedan. That's okay, because no matter what BMW calls its lineup of luxury sports coupes (and sedans), we'd still love the sleek lines, sumptuous interior and stout performance. With a refreshed nose and tail this year plus interior updates, the 2016 6 Series continues to look great. Under the hood you'll find engines ranging from a turbocharged 6-cylinder to a couple different V8 models. Along with a new aggressive-sounding exhaust system, the BMW 6 Series remains a leader in grand touring against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Audi S5.
