For This engine provides strong performance and averages more than 50mpg. M Sport models look sharper than SEs and hold their value better.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The petrol models include a 3.0-litre turbo that’s known as the 640i, and a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 badged 650i, while buyers after the ultimate 6-Series can have the 552bhp M6. We’d go for the 640d model, though, which uses a 3.0-litre diesel; it’s still hugely quick, plus it has the lowest running costs and the best touring range.

With most models (apart from the range-topping M6), you have two trims to choose from, and here we recommend M Sport. It might cost more than SE, but you should get that money back come resale time, and it improves the looks.

On both trims, standard equipment includes Drive Dynamic Control, which lets you choose between four driving modes ranging from Comfort to Sport+, and tailors the steering, gearbox and throttle accordingly. Optional Adaptive Drive also adjusts the suspension according to your selected mode.
