The 6-series Gran Coupe gets modified on the outside and inside; retains 3.0-litre diesel.

The BMW 6-series Gran Coupe facelift has been launched in India starting at Rs 1.15 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). This latest offering from BMW gets a few subtle tweaks on the exterior, while it borrows the 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine from the outgoing model.

A closer look reveals that BMW's kidney grille now has nine bars instead of 10 as in the previous model, to improve the air cooling to the engine. The grille bars have been remodelled to accentuate the forward slant—a signature style of the 6-series.

Other changes include restyled front and rear bumpers, full LED headlights and front foglights and redesigned alloy wheels. BMW will provide adaptive LED headlights with anti-dazzle high beam assistant as an option on the Gran Coupe. The minor changes continue at the rear as well. The 6-series Gran Coupe gets a new horizontal chrome bumper insert which gives it a wider look. The exterior mirrors get a bit of restyling and now house horizontal light strips as side indicators.

On the inside, the facelifted 6-series Gran Coupe gets new two-tone leather upholstery and a head-up display. The centre console now gets a high-gloss black finish around the switches for the climate control system and audio system. BMW claims improved interior quality that is more upmarket. 

Under the hood, the new BMW 6-series continues to sport the 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine developing 309bhp and 64.2kgm of torque. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Internationally, BMW has launched the updated version of the 6-series Coupe and Cabriolet as well. But India will only get the Gran Coupe version for now.
