2019 BMW 6-Series vs. Its Competition

2019 BMW 6-Series
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The BMW 6-Series competes with a small, but exclusive list of luxury cars.

The Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class are both newer and offer more luxury amenities, especially compared to the 6-Series Gran Coupe.

The Jaguar XF offers a wagon body style that speaks equally to practicality and beauty, but it’s smaller than the bunch.

The Porsche Panamera is limited mostly by buyers’ imaginations; many start close to $100,000 and top specs can reach $200,000.

The 8-Series sitting across BMW showrooms is new and offers coupe and convertible models, effectively a replacement for the 6-Series.

Quick Specs
6.4
The 2019 BMW 6-Series is a tale of two luxury four- or five-doors: one achingly pretty coupe and a well-equipped practical hatchback.
7.8
More practical and more elegant than the A6 sedan, the Audi A7 drives better than ever and takes on next-level technology.
6.2
The 2019 Jaguar XF mid-size luxury sedan is even better as a wagon; a well-earned break from the crossover craze.
7.0
Look beyond the evolutionary looks; the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has one heck of a hybrid powertrain.
7.2
The 2019 Porsche Panamera leaves nothing on the table, in terms of performance, flexibility, and panache.
