The BMW 640i won't take long to convince you that its ability is more than a match for the Jaguar XK or the Mercedes E-class coupe. The 640i has rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox – in keeping with all the 6 Series cars. It also has closable flaps behind the grille in order to improve the drag coefficient on demand ancillary functions and part-throttle loads, and brake regeneration – both of which help with fuel savings of up to 12%.
You can expect to reach 62 mph in 5.4 seconds, and its top speed is 155 mph. Cruising is easy and comfortable, and with an average fuel consumption of 37.2 mpg, you can expect to get 500 miles from a full tank. Motorway travel isn't just what this car does well, however. Back roads are a walk in the park because of the combination of the resilient body structure and the well-weighted electro-mechanical power steering that gives the car excellent grip levels.
This heady performance can be optimised with the optional Adaptive Drive, which uses hydraulically operated anti-roll bars, and Integral Active Steering, which provides rear-wheel counter-steer.
Starting at just under £60,000 you can expect BMW's superior chassis and cabin build, as well as four driving modes: ECO PRO, Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus.
The new 640i is the smallest petrol engine available in the 6 series line up, and despite the name it's actually a 3.0 litre turbo petrol engine with 320 horsepower.
