Overview Information

In 2013, BMW introduced the 4-door 6-Series Gran Coupe to provide a stylish alternative to their 5-Series and 7-Series luxury sedans. The Gran Coupe is similar in size to the 5-Series sedan but lacks some of the interior volume due to a 3-inch lower height. BMW identifies the seating configuration as "4+1" which means that it's optimized for four passengers, but can carry 5 in a pinch. Like all BMWs, model designations mirror their powertrains. The 640i equips a 315-bhp turbocharged inline six-cylinder and eight-speed transmission. The 650i ups the power level to 445-bhp with a 4.4l turbocharged V8 engine. All-wheel-drive is available with the V8 on the 650i xDrive model. The Gran Coupe carries a hefty price premium over the 5-Series sedan with prices ranging from $76,000 and up.

What Changed:

The 6-Series Gran Coupe is a new 4-door vehicle with seating for up to 5 passengers. Coming from the same family, the Gran Coupe is similar in size to the 5-Series sedan but its sleeker styling has a lower roofline and longer body. Gran Coupe models equip either a 315-bhp 3.0l inline six (640i) or a 445-bhp 4.4l V8 engine (650i). Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is offered on the V8 model (650i xDrive).
