2010 BMW 650 Reviews
BMW's luxury two-door car, the 6 Series, competes with sports cars like the Jaguar XK, Mercedes-Benz SL and Porsche 911. A V-8 engine is standard, and BMW is one of the few carmakers in the segment to still offer a manual transmission; an automatic is also available. The high-performance, 6-Series-based M6 is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.
The 6-Series' lightweight construction makes ample use of aluminum and composite materials. An electronic stability system is standard.
New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.
The coupe is long, low and wide and features a sculptured power-dome hood. Standard features include:
Up to four occupants can fit inside the 2+2 coupe and the convertible. BMW's iDrive system uses a console knob to control multiple comfort and convenience functions. The system includes six "favorite" buttons that can save radio stations, navigation locations or phone numbers.
Under the Hood
A 4.8-liter V-8 is standard; BMW's Sequential Manual Gearbox, offered in early editions of the 6 Series, has been dropped.
Most safety features are standard, but a few high-tech ones are optional.
