Big Motoring World reviews the BMW 640d Coupe LCI which has had an upgrade.
LCI stands for Life Cycle Impulse; that’s BMW’s way of saying it’s had a mid-life facelift. The new model has a high emphasis on efficiency and style – the latter which it has in abundance.
Externally, the model is much the same as its predecessor. There are some styling tweaks which include revised bumpers front and rear, full LED headlamps as standard, new door mirrors, wider exhausts, fresh alloy wheel designs and a few new colours.
Inside, the upgrades are more noticeable and give it a really polished, luxury feel. A leather dash is now standard on all models, and this helps to enhance the car’s extravagant feel. BMW’s ConnectedDrive includes an in-built, subscription-free mobile sim card which means that emergency services can automatically be alerted at an accident.
Overall, the changes add up to an enhanced appeal of what was already a great car. It’s best sampled with the highly impressive 3.0-litre diesel. This car is now effortlessly economical, comfortable and luxurious. It’s deceptively quick, too, going 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds.
We are stocking the 2012 model, available from £25,000.
