Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It may be difficult to put a label on the 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, but there's no question about the level of performance and luxury it brings to the table.The 640i is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (315 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque) matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.

PROS
Modern interior is trimmed with excellent materials
Distinctive styling for a sedan of this size
Smooth, effortless power from either engine
Lots of standard features

CONS
Backseat is more cramped than in similar coupe-styled sedans
Not as quick as some rivals, regardless of engine
More expensive than most competitors

One of the ultimate grand-tourers, the BMW 6-Series stands ready to eat up miles, buyers' budgets, and premium unleaded.

Pros
Stunning Gran Coupe
Luxo-barge-lite
Huge range of options
Fantastic powertrains
Even the 640i feels special...

Cons
... as it should for $80,000-plus
Not really a corner carver
Low roofline compromises head room
Watch the price skyrocket

The 2018 BMW 6-Series ranked #5 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the BMW 6-Series has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 45 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Several powerful engine choices
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Undersized rear seats

By: 
usnews.com

Words such as sumptuous and lavish don’t properly illustrate how luxurious the palatial Mercedes-Maybach S-class truly is. Passengers can stretch out and relax on hot-stone-style massaging leather recliners and enjoy the Burmester audio system while an atomizer fills the cabin with one of Maybach’s five signature fragrances.

Pros
High-class cabin,
stretch-out rear seat,
seriously quick.

Cons
Self-driving features still need work,
still resembles an S-class too much.

By: 
caranddriver.com

For 2018, the Maybach sedan receives freshened styling, more powerful high-beam headlights, the latest COMAND infotainment system, wireless charging for front and rear seats, and Mercedes' Energizing Comfort system.

PROS
Exceptionally comfortable and quiet
Outstanding rear-seat functionality and features
Chock full of standard safety features
Strong engines and brakes

CONS
Mercedes heritage might not be special enough
