In 2012, BMW completely redesigned the entire 6-Series line. So it comes as no surprise that the 640i remains largely unchanged for 2013. But that's not a bad thing. The BMW 640i is a stylish two-door coupe or convertible designed with opulence and class in mind. The exterior boasts sleek, powerful lines and an attractive front grille. Features and options abound, and BMW has spared no expense engineering the safety and power of this magnificent vehicle.
The 640i's turbocharged 3-liter inline-6 churns out 315 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 640i also features an automatic start-stop function designed to improve fuel efficiency when it would otherwise idle at a stop. Despite its powerful engine, the 640i achieves 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.
The interior is crafted with top-of-the-line materials and BMW's typical attention to detail. BMW's iDrive is intelligent and allows you to fully customize the vehicle's functions to your needs. Despite claiming to seat four, the 640i is best used as a two-passenger vehicle -- the rear seats are cramped and trunk space is limited.
Like most BMWs, the 640i is an uplifting experience on the road. The 6-Series was designed with sport enthusiasts in mind, and the 640i moves through twists and turns with power and grace. There's enough raw power to quickly get up to speed, and steering is crisp, precise and adaptable with normal and sport settings.
The 640is is available as a coupe or convertible in a single trim level. Standard features include: a tilt-only sunroof, automatic wipers, fog lights, an adaptive sport suspension, leather upholstery, 18-inch wheels, voice controls, iDrive technology, adaptive xenon headlights, headlight washers, LED fog lights, driver seat memory, lumbar adjustment, heated front seats, a navigation system, ten-way power front seats, parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, a nine-speaker sound system, a satellite and HD radio, an auxiliary audio jack, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, auto-dimming mirrors, Bluetooth, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control and a rear view camera.
Options groups include a Driver Assistance Package with: blind-spot detection, side- and top-view cameras, a lane-departure warning system and a speed limit monitor. An Executive Package includes self-closing automatic doors, ventilated and massaging front seats, ceramic trimmed knobs, smartphone integration, a heads-up display and a leather-covered dash. The Cold Weather package will add a heated steering wheel and a trunk pass-through ski bag. A Lighting Package has automatic high beams and LED lighting, while the M Sport package includes 19- or 20-inch wheels, a faux-suede headliner, a sport steering wheel and an aerodynamic body kit. Several standalone options are also available, as is BMWs individual optional customization.
