BMW 640d xDrive is a large, four-wheel-drive, grand tourer that does 0 to 100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while averaging 5.8 liter per 100km.

And it’s not a hybrid. What it is, is a diesel. The car is powered by BMW’s magnificent TwinPower Turbo straight-six diesel engine, which develops 230 kW/313 hp and 630 Newton metres (465 lb-ft) of torque from just 1,500rpm.

It delivers more than satisfying performance, while remaining quite economical at 5.8 litres per 100 kilometres / 48.7 – 49.6 mpg imp, while CO2 emissions are 149 – 153 grams per kilometre. That means that if you’re careful, you can cover a good 800miles between trips to the pump.

It’s not all down to the engine being a diesel. That powertrain is riddled with EfficientDyamics technologies, such as Brake Energy Regeneration, the Auto Start-Stop function, need-based operation of ancillary units and active air flap control.

The 640d comes as standard with Driving Experience Control, offering SPORT, SPORT+ and COMFORT modes, as well as ECO PRO mode for maximizing efficiency.

What we don’t get in this car is why BMW fitted it with xDrive system. The intelligent AWD system offers plenty of grip and traction, which is good in a SUV, but a sports coupe?

In contrast to conventional all-wheel-drive systems, the electronically controlled BMW xDrive is set up not only to optimise traction on low-grip surfaces, but also to enhance dynamic performance through corners. The link-up of the all-wheel-drive system with the DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) function within the ICM (Integrated Chassis Management) system enables all situations on the road to be identified and evaluated to allow the necessary control interventions to be made at an early stage.

What makes the 640d a really perfect car for every opportunity is that besides all the technology and power and economy, it’s a BMW, which means it’s engineered and built with the highest standards, and it’s packed with luxury features and amenities.

The BMW 6-Series Coupe offers seating for four immersed in a luxurious ambience, while its 460-litre boot can accommodate three 46-inch golfbags or two medium-sized hard-shell suitcases plus a flight case. The comfort-enhancing equipment fitted as standard in the new BMW 6-Series Coupe includes 2-zone automatic climate control, a multifunction steering wheel, electric steering column adjustment, electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, Cruise Control with braking function, a rain sensor with automatic headlight range control, a HiFi audio system and the control system iDrive with a freestanding Control Display in flatscreen design. Among the highlights on the options list are Adaptive LED Headlights and the Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System.

A rich variety of driver assistance systems and mobility services from BMW ConnectedDrive also help to give the new BMW 6-Series Coupe its innovative character. Enhancing convenience during a journey, for example, are services such as a personal assistant who is at your service around the clock and searches for addresses, inputting them as destinations directly into the navigation system. The Real-Time Traffic Information function, meanwhile, transfers extraordinarily precise data and diversion recommendations to the navigation system.
