For shoppers in the market for an upscale coupe that combines elegant style, a luxurious interior and solid performance, the 2017 BMW 6 Series is worthy of serious consideration. Available with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, several body styles, two engines and a variety of packages and options, the 6 Series is well positioned to meet the needs of buyers sifting through the choices in a relatively narrow yet highly competitive market segment.
The 6 Series was revamped in 2016 with new front and rear fascias, restyled LED headlights and new standard equipment, so changes to the model for 2017 are minor. The only significant addition is an update to the BMW iDrive infotainment system that includes a Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless smartphone charging.
Premium materials highlight the interior of the 6 Series, and these combine with an attractive design, well-placed controls, and a wealth of standard comfort and convenience features to provide occupants with an engaging, comfortable environment. Those in the front seats are treated to plenty of leg- and hiproom, although backseat passengers might find the accommodations a bit cramped. As with most BMWs, technology remains a hallmark, exemplified by such standard equipment as a 10.2-inch color display, Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone app integration. Even more tech features can be added through upgrade packages and standalone options.
A turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine is standard power for the 640i, generating 315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. Stepping up to the 650i brings a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 445 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission
Fuel economy for the 640i is EPA rated at 24 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). The V8-powered 650i achieved a rating of 19 mpg combined (17 city/24 highway). Choosing BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system drops the ratings just a bit.
On the road, the 6 Series is more a lover than a fighter. Although a rigid chassis design, advanced active suspension and well-balanced steering provide above-average cornering ability, the 6 Series is clearly intended for comfortable touring rather than track-day handling. But performance from the two available engines is a major plus. The standard six-cylinder engine is capable of more than enough acceleration for most drivers, but those looking for some extra zip will want to test-drive the 650i with its more powerful V8.
In standard trim, both the 640i and 650i come extremely well-equipped with a host of interior, exterior and driver-assist features, such as leather seats, automatic headlights and a rearview camera. Optional packages and accessories allow buyers to customize with their choice of comfort, convenience and technology features. And in addition to the coupe, the 6 Series is available as a convertible, the four-door Gran Coupe and the performance-oriented M6. Let Edmunds help you find the right 2017 BMW 6 Series model that best suits your needs.
