The 6 Series sits towards the top of BMW's range as the first choice for many business motorists and families who want to travel in luxury wherever they go. The 6 Series Coupé brings a sporty edge to the model family, and underneath a sculpted body are masses of cutting-edge technology plus your choice of powerful engine.
Sleek and sophisticated, the Coupé has instant appeal. Its graceful appearance merges flowing lines with curving panels, while the front expression hints at the vehicle's energetic performance. Between narrow LED headlights is BMW's iconic kidney grille with chrome fronted slats and below are standard-fit LED foglights plus three separate air intakes. Adding to the sporting theme are 18-inch star-spoke alloy wheels, quad exhausts within angular finishers and the three-door arrangement.
On the inside the 6 Series Coupé follows its BMW siblings with a cockpit geared towards the driver. The centre console is positioned slightly towards the driver's seat for easier access to all of the most important functions, yet the front passenger can also make use of all infotainment features. Here and at the rear ergonomics play a large part in everyone's comfort as the seats support on the longest trips and space is ample. Wherever you look there's also evidence of supreme craftsmanship, the cabin combining Dakota leather upholstery with fine brushed aluminium from entry level.
From your position at the head of the cabin all of the 6 Series Coupé’s technology can be enjoyed safely when on the move. Among them are the BMW Connected Drive Services which comprise BMW Emergency Call, BMW Online Services including BMW Apps, real-time traffic information and more. A wide choice of radio stations can be accessed through the DAB tuner, and Bluetooth® telephone preparation with voice control enables you to connect with those outside the cabin while mobile. BMW Professional navigation system guides you to your destinations with directions shown on the integrated 10.2-inch display, which also shows details from all other functions. Selecting between them all is straightforward using the iDrive Touch Controller with touch-sensitive pad for written character entry.
Endless thrills are delivered by the model’s engines no matter which you choose, and there are three in the line-up. For optimum performance opt for the 650i TwinPower Turbo eight-cylinder as it gives 450bhp and 650Nm of torque to accelerate rapidly from 0-60mph in around 4.6 seconds. The 320bhp 640i petrol and 313bhp 640d diesel both hit the same in 5.3 seconds, with the diesel returning the best fuel economy of up to 51.4mpg combined. Coupling with each powertrain is eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission which adapts to suit your individual driving style. Gears are selected automatically, yet you can change up or down manually using the shift paddles behind the wheel.
The model keeps you safe in many ways, using cutting-edge technology to help prevent accidents and robust passive fixtures to limit the effects of any incident. Dynamic Safety is one of the most important additions, as it prepares the car should an imminent collision be detected by closing the windows and tightening seatbelts. Meanwhile, Attentiveness Assistant monitors your driving behaviour and warns if you are showing signs of tiredness. There are systems to keep you out of trouble when travelling at a slower speed too. Park Distance Control (PDC) lets you know how close you are to vehicles and obstacles at the front and rear when entering or leaving a space.
