Which M6 Gran Coupe does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Blending the utility of a sedan, the style of a coupe, and the appetite for speed of a sports car, the 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe serves many disciplines. It's capable of transporting the family in luxury and delivering hair-raising performance in equal measures.
Compared to the regular 6 Series Gran Coupe, the M6 version becomes a thoroughbred by way of a 560-horsepower V8 (or an optional 600 hp), a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and sport-tuned suspension, wheels and brakes. You can even get a manual transmission if you want. Unlike many large coupe-inspired German sedans, the M6 is only available with rear-wheel drive, which imbues it with more engaging handling at the expense of low-speed acceleration.
We expect a replacement for this car and the 6 Series to debut soon, making the 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe likely the last of this generation.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe models
The 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is a high-performance luxury sedan available in a single trim level. It stands apart visually from other 6 Series Gran Coupes with distinctive elements such as a carbon-fiber roof, unique front and rear fascias, quad tailpipes, and a range of other equipment.
Standard features start with a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine (560 horsepower, 500 pound-feet of torque) that's paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. They also include 20-inch wheels, adaptive suspension dampers, a limited-slip differential, automatic adaptive LED headlights, LED foglights and taillights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, automatic soft-close doors, power-folding and heated auto-dimming mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, four-zone automatic climate control, power front seats with heating and memory settings, leather upholstery, extended leather trim, a power-adjustable steering wheel, carbon-fiber accents and split rear-folding seatbacks.
Also standard are Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, driver-adjustable settings, BMW's iDrive interface with a 10.2-inch display, smartphone app integration, a navigation system, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system with satellite radio and USB-iPod integration. Wireless Apple CarPlay support is included, but only as a subscription service with a free first year.
The M6 Gran Coupe's Executive package adds a heated steering wheel, a head-up display (also available separately), a power rear sunshade, power rear side-window shades, ventilated and fatigue-reducing "active" front seats, heated rear seats and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.
The Driver Assistance Plus package features a lane departure warning system, blind-spot monitoring, a surround-view camera system, and a forward collision warning system with pedestrian detection, while the Parking Assistance package adds side- and top-view parking cameras.
For more power (or if you're interested in taking your M6 Gran Coupe to a racetrack), you can get the Competition package that increases engine output to 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. You also get lightweight alloy wheels; revised tuning for the suspension, steering and rear differential; retuned stability control that provides a higher threshold for intervention in the M Dynamic mode; and a black chrome finish for the tailpipes.
The M Driver's package includes one full day of high-performance driver's training at a BMW Performance Center and a higher top-speed limit of 190 mph.
Stand-alone options include an alternative 20-inch wheel design in silver or black, carbon-ceramic brakes, a synthetic suede headliner, and an infrared night-vision system with pedestrian detection. A six-speed manual transmission is a no-cost option.

BMW M6 Gran Coupe vs. the competition
2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe
2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
BMW M6 Gran Coupe vs. Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
The AMG CLS 63 S costs a bit less than the BMW and starts out a little more powerful. Its standard all-wheel drive means it's quicker in a straight line, too. Alas, the Mercedes doesn't offer anything like the M6's power-boosting Competition package, and nor is it available with a manual transmission.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe vs. Audi RS 7
The Audi RS 7's sleek exterior is undeniably more attractive and you can opt to have it painted any color you want. Though evenly matched at the start, the Audi gains a 5-horsepower advantage in its Performance trim level, and all-wheel drive bestows it with quicker low-speed acceleration.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe vs. BMW Alpina B6 Gran Coupe
The M6 offers less power and slower straight-line acceleration than the B6, but its rear-wheel-drive layout, available manual transmission, and sportier suspension tuning make for a more engaging driving experience. The B6 prioritizes luxury and refinement over performance and is only available in limited numbers, which makes it more exclusive.
