With a choice of engines, the 2012 BMW 6-Series lets buyers choose whether they prefer power and speed or more power and speed--there's no truly green choice between them, though the six-cylinder's gas mileage is somewhat better.

The 2012 BMW 640i (six-cylinder turbocharged) rates 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway in Coupe form, according to the EPA; the convertible scores 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Stepping up to the V-8 engine in the 650i, the hardtops get 15/23 mpg ratings with the eight-speed automatic, while the six-speed manual scores 15/22 mpg. Soft-top models score identical numbers.

Finally, there's the xDrive all-wheel-drive version of the new 6-Series Coupe, which pays a penalty of just 2 mpg on the highway in comparison to rear-drive V-8 models, at 15/20 mpg.

Conclusion

The 6-Series' gas mileage is somewhat astonishing for such a heavy high-performance vehicle.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
