Most of you eagerly wait to hear the news that the brand-new 2017 BMW 6-series hits the market soon and we are glad to tell you that this is actually true- the 2017 BMW 6-series is almost ready to show all its glory. The upcoming model will be based on a new platform which has high-strength steel in its construction but it also features added carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum and magnesium products. All these elements are used to create an excellent body construction and what else is new when it comes to the 2017 BMW 6-series, you will find out soon.
2017 BMW 6 Exterior
We will start with the exterior design of the upcoming model and say that it has undergone many changes and improvements. Well, since it is BMW’s design language, it must be more than appealing. You are already familiar with the fact that the upcoming 6-series will have a new platform. Namely, the third generation F06, F12 and F13 platform will be replaced by the brand-new fourth generation G14, G15, and G6. The codes actually represent body styles, a two-door coupe, a convertible and 4-door Gran Coupe. The upcoming 2017 BMW 6-series will be based on a new modular architecture that will have a positive impact on the overall weight of the 6-series. Apparently, the new generation will be significantly lighter than the current one. We will have to sit tight before we find out if these changes are good enough to transform the upcoming 2017 BMW 6-series from heavy cruiser to lap-time bruiser.
Having in mind that the new model will have an extended wheelbase, we can expect a more spacious cabin as well. We also expect to see a wide range of premium materials such as chrome, aluminum, Alcantra and high-end leather. The cockpit will be equipped with excellent infotainment system, satellite navigation, high-quality audio system and connectivity. Of course, this is not the final list of the features, there will be much more but we will have to wait for a while before we get exact details.
