What You Will Like

The 2016 BMW 6-Series continues BMW's tradition of high-speed grand-touring models by laying down the fundamentals in a capable-handling coupe, convertible or 4-door Gran Coupe model, then offering a long list of high-tech enhancements that can improve performance. Meanwhile, the Gran Coupe is an unusual offering, with the sleek roofline of a coupe and all the performance of the 2-door 6-Series models, complemented by four doors and enough rear-seat space for adults. M6 models continue to stun with their over-the-top performance and a dynamic personality that can be dialed in with various settings for all of its electronic controls.

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Compare the 2016 BMW 6 Series

Loading Comparison...


The BMW 6 Series might be seen as a luxury car, but it feels like a grand touring machine, in particular the four-door Gran Coupe model with its 4.5-inch extended wheelbase. But there’s also an everyday two-door coupe, a convertible, and a high-performance M6 version. They all have evocative styling, athletic and elegant, with a long hood, muscular flanks, and a sensuous roofline.

The 2016 BMW 6 Series gets a facelift, touched up with one less vertical bar in the grille (now nine), along with tweaks to the lower air intake and foglamps. Adaptive LED headlamps have a new take on the classic double round design, with turn-signal indicators now moving along over the beams. In the cabin there’s more LED ambient lighting, along with new wood and glossy black trim.

The BMW 640i coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe come with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 making 315 horsepower. The BMW 650i versions use a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 445 horsepower. We love the classic inline-6, but found the V8 to be better suited to the 6 Series pace and attitude.

They all use a BMW-made 8-speed automatic transmission, with a 6-speed manual available for the BMW 650i with rear-wheel-drive. All-wheel drive (xDrive) is available for both BMW 640i and BMW 650i.

The powerful M6 uses its 560 horsepower to accelerate to 60 miles per hour in a brief 4.1 seconds. It takes two transmissions, the 6-speed manual or 7-speed twin clutch. Its road performance inspires awe, given all its electronic stability, traction and dynamic controls affecting steering, suspension and power. However on the track, it’s limited by its size and weight, topping two tons. The smaller M5 sedan is faster.

Fuel mileage takes a hit because of the weight, 4200 pounds for the coupe and 4500 for the Gran Coupe. The BMW 640i with its smaller engine gets an EPA-rated 20/31/24 mpg City/Highway/Combined with rear-wheel drive, while the BMW 650i with its V8 gets 17/25/20 mpg. Both get about 1 mpg less with all-wheel drive.

The BMW 640i uses an exhaust system that enhances the beautiful sound the straight six engine makes. Use the Driving Experience Control switch (really, that’s the name), to tune the volume of the engine note that comes into the cabin (treble and bass are not yet programmed). Twenty years ago, appreciating the scream of the M3, who would have guessed it could come to this.


The 2016 BMW 6 Series encompasses a dozen models, from the rear-wheel-drive 640i coupe ($77,300) to the xDrive 650i convertible ($99,200). There are also M6 and Alpina models.

The M Sport Edition gives the look of the M, with 19-inch wheels, black brake calipers, and M aero touches. Inside there’s an M steering wheel, dark trim and leather dash. A new Black Accent package features black Nappa leather, a glossy black grille, black tailpipe tips, and 20-inch two-tone alloy wheels.

Stand-alone options include a Harman Kardon sound system, and a host of things from night vision to help with parking. A Driver Assistance Plus package includes lane departure, forward collision and pedestrian warnings, city collision mitigation, blind-spot monitor, and multiple camera views.


The kidney grille shoots tight creases out its top, up and along the hood. Aggressive headlamps speak to big air intakes. Flared fenders and eye-catching curves make it seem like the windows are low, but it’s an illusion. The aerodynamic sideview mirrors have light strips. The alloy wheels are as big as they look.

Styling on the M6 is even more aggressive, with a carbon-fiber roof.


The 6 Series cabin is stark and business-like, with a muted palette, while still being rich and well-appointed, exotic, nearly as plush as the 7 Series. The controls display order and restraint, intriguingly low-key and high-tech. It’s a new look for 2016, with glossy black trim and chrome. Premium plastics. Imagine the tactile sensation of the optional white leather and fine woods.

It’s a snug fit inside, even with the longer four-door Gran Coupe. There’s room in the rear, but adults will have to duck to get in and out, because of the gorgeous arching roofline. It’s worth it, let your passengers duck, they’re lucky to be riding in such a car. BMW calls it a 4+1, meaning room for four adults and maybe sometimes almost a fifth, in the center rear position. Well. We’ll say this: darn sight more room than a Porsche 911.

The front seats have good space, great back and thigh support, and headroom for all. In the M models, the sport seats are lighter and have yet more back and thigh support.

The convertible uses a folding fabric roof, it don’t need no stinkin’ hardtop, it’s about space and speed. And the rear window opens. A real ragtop.

Driving Impressions

The 6 Series is quite happy to sail along at triple-digit speeds, like it can do in Germany where it comes from. It’s smooth and confident, easy to steer. But the handling isn’t razor sharp, as it’s tuned for comfort, not the track or even the twisties.

Of course the driver can tune it him or herself, with Driving Dynamics Control knob with Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ settings that set the suspension, steering, throttle and transmission responses.

The twin-turbo V8 in M6 versions makes 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to either a 7-speed twin-clutch (BMW calls it M-DCT), or 6-speed gearbox (rev-matched downshifting available). If the 6 Series is comfortable at 100 mph, the M6 is comfortable at 150. And electronically limited at 155.

The M6 has beefier suspension and tires, plus launch control and specific traction and stability control to maintain grip. Even with its size, the M6 is capable of out-cornering and out-braking many sports cars, although not the smaller BMW M cars.


There aren’t many things in this world more elegant than a BMW 6 Series convertible, in white. And then you put your foot down and add power to the elegance, from either the classic inline-6 or a throaty V8. If it’s flat-out performance you want, consider the M5 over the M6.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
