The BMW 6 Series has seen the addition of numerous new equipment and trim options for 2017 for both the exterior and interior, revealed this week initially for the European market.

Available across all three versions of the Bavarian grand tourer - coupe, convertible and four-door Gran Coupe - BMW says the new options help to "showcase the sporting character" of the 6 Series range.

New exterior choices for 2017 include the option of Sonic Blue metallic paint (pictured), and 20-inch bi-colour M light-alloy wheels in conjunction with the popular M Sport package - previously reserved for the top-shelf M6 performance variant.


Inside, regular 6 Series variants are now optionally available with carbon-fibre trim in conjunction with the M Sport package - which was also previously exclusive to the M6.

These new options add to the already substantial equipment list of the 6 Series range, which includes heated and electrically-adjustable front seats with memory function, Dakota leather trim, electrically-adjustable steering wheel, ConnectedDrive infotainment system with satellite navigation, WiFi hotspot, wireless phone charging and LED headlights to name a few.



Australian timing for the updated 6 Series range is still to be confirmed.

For now, pricing remains the same for 2017, starting at $177,615 plus on-road costs for the entry-level 640i and topping out at $308,315 for the M6 convertible.
