The 2013 BMW 6-Series models offer several different powertrains that span a difference in power and capability.

Although there's no truly green choice, the turbo six-cylinder engine in the 640i variants is quite efficient, at 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.

There's also an 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.

The new M6 Coupe and Convertible are also impressive--on a relative scale. Compared to the previous V-10-powered M6, the new versions offer a 23-percent improvement in efficiency, according to BMW. But even with that improvement, they're at 14 mpg city, 20 highway (16 mpg Combined).

Conclusion

For such heavy, luxurious, high-performance line of models, the 2013 6-Series is quite efficient.

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.
