2013 BMW 6-Series Review

(0 Stars)  A big boulevardier, now with more head-turning style.

New For 2013
The latest 6-series debuted for 2012, and this year BMW fills out the lineup. The four-door Gran Coupe is now here, in six-cylinder (640i) and V-8 (650i) form. All three body styles can be had with all-wheel drive. In addition to the M Sport package, there is now an honest-to-goodness M6 coupe and convertible (but—not yet—an M6 Gran Coupe). The M6 borrows its powertrain from the M5.
Overview
Like many recent BMWs, the 6-series emerged from its redesign considerably better looking than before. Historically, the 6-series has been offered as a coupe and a convertible. The convertible features a uniquely designed soft top whose rear edges extend rearward, framing a vertical back window that is power operated and can be raised or lowered independently of the roof. Now, BMW is adding the first-ever four-door 6-series, the Gran Coupe (pictured). Like the two-door and the convertible, the Gran Coupe is available as the turbocharged six-cylinder 640i or the 650i with a turbo V-8. The V-8 can be had with all-wheel drive, which is unusual for a coupe/convertible. The 6 also offers a manual transmission (in the 650i), a choice that’s increasingly rare in this class. Do not, however, conclude that the availability of a stick shift means the 6-series is a highly involving sports car. It is not. Granted, its performance is impressive—even the 640i can race to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, and the all-wheel-drive V-8 version can do it in as little as 4.7 seconds. Even quicker is the M6, which returns—as a two-door coupe or convertible only—after a two-year absence. Its turbo V-8 packs 560 hp and is paired exclusively with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Much more so than before, the new M6 deftly combines luxury and performance.
