2011 BMW 6-Series: Overview

The 2011 BMW 6-Series has been discontinued pending a redesigned version due in calendar 2011 as a 2012 model. Note there may be examples of 2010 6-Series models still available on dealer lots. For 2010, BMW’s flagship sports car comes in 650i and M6 models, each available in coupe or convertible form. Both body styles seat four. Convertibles have a power soft top and a heated-glass rear window that can act as a top-down wind deflector or be lowered for top-up ventilation. The 650i models have a 360-hp 4.8-liter V8 and standard 6-speed automatic transmission. The M6 has a 500-hp 5.0-liter V10 that comes with a 7-speed automated manual transmission. A 6-speed manual is optional on both the 650i and M6; this transmission is a no-charge feature on the M6. Available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, and front side airbags. Coupes have head-protecting tubular side airbags. Standard are BMW’s Active Roll Stabilization designed to counter body lean and BMW’s Dynamic Drive Control that adjusts suspension, throttle, and automatic-transmission settings for sportier response. BMW’s Active Steering, designed to quicken low-speed steering response, is standard on M6 and available on 650i. M6 also includes a driver-adjustable suspension, uprated brakes, and larger wheels. All models come with a navigation system, steering-linked headlights, and BMW’s iDrive controller for climate, audio, and navigation functions. This report is based on evaluations of the 2010 BMW 6-Series.
