2015 BMW 6-Series Overview

Is the 2015 BMW 6 Series a Good Used Car?

The 2015 6 Series is a good car with an easy-to-use infotainment system, an upscale cabin, and strong performance. It's available in three body styles – coupe, Gran Coupe, and convertible – along with a generous list of standard and available features. You’ll have plenty of options to make sure you get what you want.

Used 2015 BMW 6 Series Performance and Interior

The 2015 BMW 6 Series comes standard with a 315-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Three other engines are available: a 445-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8; a 540-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8; and a 560-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and a six-speed manual are also available.

Though the base six-cylinder engine packs plenty of punch, the M6 and Alpina B6 have more muscular V8s that deliver true sports car acceleration. The 6 Series gets 16 to 21 mpg in the city and 24 to 31 mpg on the highway.

Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive (xDrive) is available. Befitting a company that popularized the luxury sports coupe, the 6 Series has nimble handling, responsive steering, and a comfortable ride.

The 2015 6 Series coupe and convertible seat four and the Gran Coupe sedan seats five. Leather seats, a moonroof (except convertible models), and 10-way power-adjustable heated front seats are standard. Available features include a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and 20-way power-adjustable front seats. Rear seats in the coupe and convertible are cramped for adults, but there is ample legroom in the Gran Coupe. However, headroom in the Gran Coupe is tight. The front seats are comfortable in all models. 

Standard features include push-button start and BMW's iDrive infotainment system, which includes navigation, a 10.2-inch display, a center console-mounted control knob, satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, handwriting recognition, and smartphone integration. Available features include a Harman Kardon or Bang & Olufsen premium audio system and a head-up display. The iDrive infotainment system has easy-to-use menus and a sharp display that responds quickly.

How Safe Is the 6 Series?

The 2015 6 Series was not crash tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Because of the associated costs, it's normal for luxury vehicles and sports cars to only undergo a few crash tests – or to not be crash tested at all.

Standard safety features include a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. Available safety features include parallel park assist, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, a head-up display, pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.

Should I Consider Another Used 6 Series?

The 2015 6 Series is part of the car's third generation, which began with the 2012 model year and includes the 2017 model. A new trim was added for the 2015 model year, but there were no other significant changes. Going with a 2014 model, which saw several updates, will get you largely the same vehicle while likely saving you money.

Which Used BMW 6 Series Is Right for Me?

The 2015 BMW 6 Series comes in four trims: 640i, 650i, M6, and Alpina B6. It is available in three body styles: coupe, Gran Coupe, and convertible. For the best performance, go with the M6 or Alpina B6 models. They come with twin-turbocharged V8 engines that make 560 horsepower and 540 horsepower, respectively. They also come standard with a navigation system, a 10.2-inch display, satellite and HD Radio, Bluetooth, handwriting recognition, and smartphone integration.

You may consider spending a bit more to get a certified pre-owned 6 Series. The BMW CPO program has three levels based on the vehicle’s age and the number of miles on the odometer: Certified Pre-Owned Elite, Certified Pre-Owned, and Pre-Owned. Each level receives the balance of the original new-car warranty. Certified Pre-Owned Elite vehicles get an additional one-year/25,000-mile warranty, while Certified Pre-Owned models receive an additional two-year/50,000-mile warranty. Pre-Owned BMWs receive no additional coverage. Each BMW undergoes an inspection before earning CPO status. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the BMW warranty page carefully.

2015 BMW 6 Series and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 BMW 6 Series or 2015 Audi A7?

The Audi A7 is similar to the 6 Series in that it has a handsome interior and a lineup of strong engines. The A7's engines produce 240 to 560 horsepower, and – similar to the BMW – they have powerful acceleration, nimble handling, and a smooth ride. The A7's interior is stylish, but like the 6 Series, rear-seat headroom is cramped for taller passengers. Prices and predicted reliability are similar, making either car a good choice.

Which Is Better: 2015 BMW 6 Series or 2015 BMW 7 Series?

The BMW 7 Series is a super luxury car with an array of decadent features, including massaging seats and a rear-seat entertainment system. It also provides more than enough rear-seat leg- and headroom for extra tall passengers. The 7 Series comes with powerful engines – producing 255 to 535 horsepower. A hybrid is also available. The 7 Series isn't as agile as the 6 Series, but it provides an engaging drive and has precise steering. It's only offered as a sedan, but its combination of luxury and performance make it the car to buy – provided you're not looking for a sports coupe.

Which Is Better: 2015 BMW 6 Series or 2015 BMW 4 Series?

The BMW 4 Series is a luxury small car offered in coupe, Gran Coupe, and convertible body styles. It has athletic handling, muscular engines, and excellent fuel economy. The 4 Series' interior is full of upscale materials and – despite being a smaller car – is sufficiently roomy in the rear for adults in all body styles (especially the Gran Coupe). The 4 Series' engines produce 240 to 425 horsepower and have lively acceleration. Steering is sharp and there is plenty of athleticism on twisty roads. Additionally, the 4 Series has a lower predicted cost of ownership, making it the car to buy.
