Changes to the exterior are the newly designed kidney grille and front and rear aprons to accentuate the width of the body. Six-cylinder models can also be distinguished via the larger tailpipe embellishers. Newly developed full-LED headlights are now fitted as standard across the lineup, with adaptive LED headlights with BMW’s selective beam anti-dazzle high beam assistant available as an option.

Depending on the market, the three body styles of the 6-Series are available with either the 320hp 3.0-liter straight-six 640i, the 450hp 4.4-liter V8 650i, or the 313hp 3.0-liter straight-six diesel 640d.

The top-of-the-line 6-Series models, however, are the M6 Coupe, the M6 Convertible and the M6 Gran Coupe, all of which are propelled by a 4.4-liter M turbocharged V8 engine that produces 560hp and 678Nm.

To tell the M6 apart from the regular 6-Series, it gets an M-specific double-bar kidney grille and a front apron with large air intakes, sculpted front wings with hallmark M gills (including integrated side indicators), side skirts, and exclusive 19-inch M forged light-alloy wheels. Rounding out the M6 model's look are the rear apron with integrated diffuser insert, two sets of M-specific twin tailpipes, and the customary M6 logo on the trunk lid. Another exclusive M feature is the ultra-lightweight contoured carbon roof of the new M6 Coupe and M6 Gran Coupe.
