The new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé will be available in two trim levels

BMW has confirmed full pricing details for its new four-door, five-seat Gran Coupé – a rival to the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.

The new car goes on sale this month, priced from £61,390.

Two trim levels

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé will be available in two trim levels: SE and M Sport. 

The entry-level £61,390 640i SE grade boasts a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including satellite navigation, leather upholstery, heated front seats and cruise control.

The most efficient of the three engines in the Gran Coupé range is the 640d

Upgrading to M Sport trim costs £4,665 and adds a bodykit and larger alloy wheels, as well as sports seats.

Three engine options

The 640i opens the range and gets a 316bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. 

The range-topping £70,650 650i – featuring a 444bhp 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 – is the other petrol engine choice. It goes on sale in July this year.

Performance from this new engine is strong – 0-62mph takes 4.6 seconds – while claimed efficiency of 31.7mpg combined with 206g/km CO2 emissions means £270 car tax (VED).

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé 640i is considerably more expensive than the Audi A7

The most efficient engine in the Gran Coupé range is the £63,900 640d. Powered by a 309bhp 3.0-litre turbodiesel, it will complete the 0-62mph dash in 5.4 seconds – the same as the 640i – while returning a claimed 49.6mpg with 148g/km CO2 emissions (£135 car tax).

More expensive than rivals

At £61,390, the 640i Gran Coupé is considerably more expensive than the similarly-equipped entry-level Audi A7 (£40,000) and the base-spec Mercedes-Benz CLS 250 CDI (£46,865).

The Audi and BMW are available with three rear seats – the BMW seats five, but only in a small ‘jump seat’ between the two rear bucket-style chairs. However, the Mercedes only accommodates four, reducing its practicality.
