Facelifted BMW 6 Series is on the way, and could debut with new tech and upgraded engines at Detroit Motor Show in January

BMW is preparing a facelift for the 6 Series, as these latest images from our spy photographers in Germany prove.

On the styling front changes look set to be fairly modest, focusing on the front fascia layout just below the headlights and including a new-look bootlid arrangement. Up front, it also appears the two-door coupe and convertible will get a slightly revised grille with fewer vertical slats, and the M Sport model pictured here looks to have gained wing mirror-integrated indicators as well.

Under the bonnet, the third-generation 6 Series’ current engine line-up will be carried over, with minor tweaks and improved technology to help boost performance and cut emissions. There are currently no plans to introduce a hybrid model either, contrary to rumours suggesting otherwise.

Inside we’re expecting the mid-life refresh to include a few subtle design and layout modifications, as well as updated ConnectedDrive and an array of improved safety features. 

BMW is apparently working on the 6 Series Gran Coupe, too, so it’s possible the four-door spin off could receive a similar range of updates in time for next year, despite having only launched in 2012.

We’ll keep you posted as more details emerge closer to the full reveal early next year – possibly at the Detroit Motor Show in January – ahead of the revised BMW 6 Series’ arrival in showrooms next summer.
