BMW improves 6 Series breed

Fuel consumption and styling improvements for BMW’s 6 Series Coupe and Convertible

25 Sep 2009

BMW Australia has announced the imminent arrival of upgraded versions of the 6 Series Coupe and Convertible, both of which will increase in price by more than $6000.

Due in local showrooms from November, the revised 6 Series two-door models employ the Brake Energy Regeneration system from BMW’s EfficientDynamics technology warehouse, reducing combined-cycle fuel consumption by more than five per cent on both models.

By generating electric power from energy otherwise wasted as lost heat via the brake system, the 2010 650i Coupe reduces its average fuel consumption by 5.4 per cent, from 11.1 to 10.5 litres per 100km, while the 650i Convertible’s fuel economy improves by 6.8 per cent, from 11.7 to 10.9L/100km.

There are no changes to the 270kW/490Nm 4.8-litre Valvetronic petrol V8 that powers the 650i, with the coupe continuing to sprint to 100km/h in a claimed 5.2 seconds and the convertible acceleration to the national highway limit in 5.6.

Interior upgrades include the fitment of BMW’s latest iDrive control system, which introduces a new high-resolution 8.8-inch monitor with Professional navigation, high-definition TV and 80GB hard drive, 12GB of which is available for audio files. Navigation system upgrades now take place via USB upload at BMW dealerships.

Two new exterior colours will also be available - Imola Red and Carbon Black – while the interior on both vehicles continues to come as standard in Pearl leather, with the no-cost option of Saddle Brown light, Chateau, Cream Beige or Black.

Similarly, the 6 Series’ brushed aluminium interior highlights can be changed at no extra cost to Birch Grain or Maple Grain woodgrain trim, while standard features continue to extend to a BMW M steering wheel, anthracite-coloured BMW Individual roof lining and a lighting package.

Prices increase by $6139 for the coupe (now $227,300) and $6144 for the convertible, which now costs $245,100.

“The new BMW 650i Sport further shapes the top end of the BMW product portfolio and signals yet another example of BMW’s uncompromised BMW EfficientDynamics strategy,” said BMW Group Australia managing director Stavros Yallouridis.
