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

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.

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
