What You Will Like

The 2017 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.

What's New For 2017

The BMW 6-series remains essentially unchanged for the 2017 model year. New updates to the iDrive infotainment system include new menus and an easier to use operating system. Wireless phone charging has also been added this year.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

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 2017 BMW 6 Series

Loading Comparison...


The BMW 6 Series is a luxury car with an arching roofline that comes as a coupe, convertible, or fastback sedan called the Gran Coupe, which has longer wheelbase for more rear passenger room.

The 6 Series is a cruiser, not a high-performance car (not counting the much more expensive M6 with 560 horsepower). The 6 Series got a minor facelift for 2016, so there are no significant changes for 2017, mostly just new glossy black interior trim, with chrome around the iDrive display.

The standard engine in the cruiser BMW 6 Series is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 making 315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque, enabling it to accelerate from zero to sixty in a quick 5.3 seconds; that’s the BMW 640i. Next engine is a V8 making 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, enabling the BMW 650i to accelerate from zero to sixty in 4.3 seconds; that one-second difference is huge in the seat of your pants.

Both engines use an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive available, which BMW calls xDrive.

The six-cylinder gets 21/30 miles per gallon City/Highway, 24 mpg Combined. The 6 Series hasn’t been crash-tested by the government or insurance industry. Being a high-end German car, there’s a ton of available safety equipment, including forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking at city speeds; blind-spot monitors; a surround-view camera system; and lane departure warnings. Night vision cameras with pedestrian detection and active steering assistants are also available.


The 2017 BMW 640i Coupe ($77,600) comes with leather seats, dark wood trim, 18-inch wheels, adaptive LED headlamps, 10-way power adjustable front seats, keyless ignition, WiFi hotspot capability, rearview camera, and iDrive, an infotainment interface with 10.2-inch touchscreen.

The 640i Convertible ($85,100) and longer-wheelbase BMW 640i Gran Coupe ($79,800) are similarly equipped. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination.)

Options include the M Sport package that adds 19-inch wheels and high performance tires, black brake calipers, LED fog lamps, and Alcantara headliner.


The 6 Series is understated yet evocative. The lines at its forward edge are finely rendered, as they feed into the arching roofline: confident, low slung and wide shouldered. The stance is athletic. The curves are elegant in profile. The hoodline is taut, flanks muscular, and rear end sleek, simple, and modestly tucked. The new-for-2016 nose creases tightly into the nine-slat kidney grille, flanked by bold headlamps and big air intakes.

Its curves and flared fenders lower the window line, at least to the eye. The big 18-inch alloy wheels fill the wheelwells, becoming design details on the coupe and Gran Coupe.


There’s a business-like starkness to the cabin, with muted shades that look rich. It borders on the exotic, with an array of materials, textures and colors. It’s well appointed, but ruled by order and restraint, both low-key and high-tech. The plastics and leather present a premium visual and tactile sensation, even before you bring out the best materials like white leather or fine woods.

If you want your cabin bright, there are trim packages that can make it nearly as plush as a 7 Series.

The Gran Coupe might have a wheelbase that’s 4.5 inches longer, but, like the two-door coupe, it’s more suited for two people. There’s room to stretch up front, but, in the coupe, the rear seat isn’t much more functional than with a Porsche 911. In the Gran Coupe there’s more rear legroom, although if you carry rear passengers often, you need to go with the 5 Series or 7 Series. And headroom is low because of the sloping sensuous roofline. Taller passengers will have to duck to climb in and out.

The powered front buckets adjust in a myriad of ways, so comfort is easy to find. The M Sport package offers multi-function sport seats with more support in the backrest and thighs.

The convertible’s folding fabric top stows tightly and raises and lowers quickly, in 20 seconds at 25 mph. The glass rear window can even be opened, like in the old convertible days.

Driving Impressions

The 6 Series is quick and sporty. The BMW 640i turbo six-cylinder performs competently in its class. Its 8-speed automatic transmission gets the most from its 315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The engine gets most of its torque down low, at about 1700 rpm, and overcomes any doubt that the 3.0-liter engine might be breathless under acceleration. Actually, if it feels breathless, it’s at the top end.

The BMW 650i is quicker and sportier. The twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8’s 445 horsepower is impressive, but it’s the 480 pound-feet of torque that makes us swoon. You might say that the 650i has a confident gas pedal. The turbochargers are seamless from 2000 rpm all the way up to 7000 rpm redline. The 650i’s linear power and symphonic bellow make winding roads enjoyable.

The 650i already weighs 264 pounds more than the 640i, so adding another 100 pounds for all-wheel drive might not be the best thing. We’re inclined to suggest that if you need all-wheel drive, go for the 640i, because it’s lighter and should be more nimble.

By most measurements now, the 6-Series is the Bavarian grand tourer, not a razor sharp sports car, or brawny muscle machine, and having plenty of passing power is part of the program.

The 6 Series handles with confidence, with steering sharp as a knife but not sharp as a razor. The ride is so smooth that it begs for effortless high speeds. The suspension is tuned for comfort, not track days. However with Driving Dynamics Control there are Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ modes to set suspension, steering, throttle and transmission response. The range of adjustments is almost astonishing, changing the 6 Series from cruiser to canyon carver.


The BMW 6 Series offers three personalities: coupe, convertible, or sedan. Two engines make it silky or beefy. All are most comfortable for two people.

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.
