With such a broad range of body styles and engine lines, the 2015 BMW 6-Series competes with an equally broad array of rivals.
The Gran Coupe might be considered a natural alternative to the Audi A7 or Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, both of which offer similar luxury, performance, and style, albeit with a different feel.
The 6-Series coupe brings the Porsche 911, Jaguar XK, and Maserati GranTurismo to the competitive set.
While the Bimmer isn’t as serious a performance car as the 911, or as exotic as the Maserati, it certainly deserves to be mentioned in the same breath.
Mercedes-Benz’s SL-Class is the natural competition for the 6-Series convertible, as both offer tremendous panache in an open-top package.
The SL-Class does offer some advanced technology not available on the 6-Series, but the BMW is a bit sportier.
In all, the 6-Series manages a masterful balance between driver’s car and comfortable cruiser than could see it taking the place of any of these cars for the right buyer.
