In order to be competitive, every modern sedan has to offer performance, style, and comfort, and the upcoming 2018 BMW 6-Series certainly checks all of those boxes. For those customers, who want nothing but high-end coupes, the new BMW presents a perfect solution. Thanks to a number of changes, the upcoming sedan will push the limits even further and provide a big challenge to its competition, in the form of the Mercedes E-class and an Audi S5.
2018 BMW 6-Series – Sleeker and more Stretched
What can be said about the exterior of the 2018 BMW 6-Series, that hasn’t been said in the past? The answer is – nothing new. The BMW was always known for its luxury, style, and flashiness. It is obvious that the newest 6-Series not only takes all of those qualities but also takes them to a whole new level.
The first impression regarding the exterior of this sedan is that it is much sleeker and more stretched than the previous versions. To achieve this, the German manufacturer made great efforts, so as to redesign and update a number of exterior design features. In the front, it is immediately noticeable that the car sports a redesigned nose, with improved effectiveness and reduced number of bars. The rear end of the latest BMW looks as menacing as always, with striking and aggressive lines. Additional design choices include a striking crease, a longer hood, revamped LED headlights, 19-inch wheels and a rear diffuser.
The interior of the 2018 BMW 6-Series does not need any major changes because it was already one of the best ones on the market. Instead, the German engineers decided to introduce some subtle changes. With an abundance of high-quality materials, the cabin of this sedan will offer nothing but superb luxury and style. Fully adjustable seats, covered in high-quality leather will ensure maximum comfort for all those having the pleasure of driving this vehicle or taking a ride in it.
Its interior will also consist of carbon fiber and exotic finishes, so as to add even more to the classy feel. When it comes to the tech options, the latest BMW will offer plenty of them. These will come in the form of an advanced navigation system, a touch-sensitive iDriver controller, dynamic cruise control, rearview cameras and more. For infotainment purposes, the customers can expect a 10.2-inch touchscreen display, 12-speaker sound system, Bluetooth connectivity suites, USB ports and so on.
