A stylish coupe with the usual three-door, four-seat configuration, the BMW 6 Series was first launched in 1976 and ran until 1988 before disappearing from the Bavarian pantheon for a 16-year hiatus. It reemerged in 2004, was replaced in 2011 and the latest model landed in 2018. We focus on the 2011-2018 6 Series here, which hits the sweet spot as a good-value used buy. Large petrol and diesel power-plants are available and it will make an excellent cruiser, whichever you go for.

What we think about the BMW 6 Series
If you’re looking for a quality, prestige coupe, the BMW 6 Series should definitely be on your list.
Stylish exterior, quality interior
V8 engine costly
Not as sporty as it looks
Limited rear legroom
A big choice when shopping for your 2011-2018 BMW 6 Series is the engine. The 3.0-litre diesel (640d) has plenty of grunt plus respectable fuel economy. The 640i is a 3.0-litre petrol option but, if fuel-efficiency is less of a concern, go for the powerful 4.4-litre V8 of the 650i.
Our verdict of the Bmw 6 Series
