Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 BMW M6 lineup loses its iconic coupe, but the four-door Gran Coupe was always the more compelling choice

Pros
Arresting performance
Great handling
High-tech interior
Sexy Gran Coupe

Cons
No more coupe, not that anyone bought it
Hugely expensive
Rivals are compelling, too
Rather plump

Like the M5 on which it's mechanically based, the 2018 BMW M6 Gran Coupe gets the full M division treatment, at least compared to the standard 6 Series Gran Coupe. That includes an immensely powerful turbocharged V8 with 560 horsepower (or an optional 600 hp), an upgraded suspension, stronger brakes and plentiful luxury.

PROS
Engine makes exceptional power
Interior is richly trimmed and well-equipped
Front seats offer impressive support and comfort

CONS
By sedan standards, offers modest headroom and rear-seat legroom
Feels big and heavy around tight turns
Commands significant premium over the M5 on which it's based

The 2019 A8 poses a genuine threat to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac. It is taller, longer, more isolated from the road, yet better controlled than the A8 it replaces. It is a cruise missile for the wealthy; it flattens mountains and straightens freeways with ease. And even absent Traffic Jam Pilot, the official term for the headline self-driving feature, it’s quite likely the most technologically advanced car in the world.

Pros
A big fella who can dance,
superb ride comfort and body control,
anechoic-chamber silent,
subtle for a limo.

Cons
Advanced self-parking features need more work,
sober styling inside and out,
questionably unfinished.
