The BMW 6-Series is expected to see no significant changes for the 2019 model year. Since the 2-door Coupe was ceased in 2015, the lineup includes a 2-door Convertible, a 4-Door Gran Coupe and a 4-Door Gran Turismo with wagon-like styling.
2019 BMW 6-Series Design
The renderings follow current reports around a sleeker and sportier style of the popular high-end tourer. The new 6er is said to have a more dynamic roofline than the existing 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 an extended roofline which puts the C-pillar just behind the rear wheels and enables a brief rear overhang. Some suggest it will have the visual dynamics of an Aston Martin.
Front kidney grilles revealed 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 consumptions are a continuation of BMW’s present style, in addition to a lot of chrome aspects for a more luxurious look. The new 6 Series will go on a diet for an overall weight saving of around 200 kilograms. The rear axle comes from the new 7 Series, but xDrive all-wheel drive will continue to be provided. The 6 Series family remains in the standard mix of material roofing convertible, coupe and a four-seater Gran Coupe.
