Expert Rating

14 City / 20 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.


For buyers who believe that performance cars should only have two doors, BMW serves up the M6, a twin-turbo V8 coupe based on the more conservative midsize 5-Series. The M6 possesses as much athleticism as mechanically possible within the context of a roomy and luxurious four-seater.

What's New for 2014

Every M6 now gets satellite radio and automatic soft-close doors standard. A six-speed manual joins the equipment list as a no-cost option for buyers who like to do all the shifting themselves. Most significant is the new Competition Package, which wrings every last bit of power and handling out of the M6’s architecture.

Choosing Your BMW M6

The M6 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with 560 horsepower, matched to a 7-speed double-clutch automated manual transmission. All that oomph is accompanied by electronic launch control and an adaptive sport-tuned suspension. To keep weight in check, the M6 wears a carbon-fiber composite roof panel, and the hood and doors are made of aluminum. Expect to rocket from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds flat.

The cabin is slathered in supple leather and black carbon fiber trim, and whole affair can be customized with a pallet of available leathers and woods. Standard equipment goes beyond the expected to include automatic soft-close doors, front and rear parking sensors with color display, a heated driver’s door lock, BMW concierge services and a ski bag. Convertible models carry special sun-reflective leather inside.

Most available equipment is distilled down to three option packages:

  • Competition: Enhances the M6’s performance with 15 extra horsepower, racing-spec suspension and steering systems, sporty exhaust tuning, and upgraded tires on 20-inch wheels.
  • Executive: Offers the additional luxury of massaging and ventilating front seats, a power rear sunshade, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display and full LED headlights.
  • Driver Assistance Plus: Adds active collision detection and avoidance features, speed limit info, and top- and side-view cameras

Among the few standalone options are carbon ceramic brakes, Bang & Olufsen surround sound and night vision with pedestrian detection.

CarsDirect Tip

At 20 mpg on the highway and 14 in the city, the M6 is quite efficient for a car of its might. Alas, it still gets hit with a $1,300 gas guzzler tax. The 6-speed manual boosts mileage by about 1 mpg, reducing the tax to $1,000.
