First Drive Review: 2012 BMW 650i Coupe
The 2012 BMW 650i Coupe
is getting excellent reviews from BMW
fans and auto reviewers. This Philadelphia area BMW dealer
is absolutely crazy about this new BMW 6 Series
. This new 6 Series BMW
has style with its luxury and yet sporty design; not to mention it is captivating on the roads.
In late ’70s, BMW launches the first 6 Series Coupe, a replacement to the legendary 3.0CS and 3.0CSi. The executive coupe struck a balance between luxury and driving dynamics, and soon emerged as an iconic vehicle in the vast BMW family.
Three generations later, the 2012 BMW 650i Coupe comes to market to continue the legacy of its predecessors, empowered to, once again, seduce the BMW drivers with its elegant, yet sporty design lines. The Coupe follows the steps of its Cabriolet sibling which came to market in Spring of this year.
We tested the BMW 650i Convertible down in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and put the high-end cabriolet through fast paces and prolonged sprints. The hardtop made its North American debut in Monterey, California, on the eve of the 2011 Pebble Beach Concourse D’Elegance.
Exterior Design. Longer and Wider.
BMW considers the new 6 series
the top of their model range. The 6er Coupe’s role is to be the pinnacle of BMW’s coupe offerings and at the same time, the 2012 BMW 6 Series Coupe
emphasizes the new design language at BMW. The 2+2 coupe inherits some design cues from the regrettable CS Concept and it aligns itself with the design language seen on the new 5 and 7 Series. It retains the two-door design while the forthcoming Gran Coupe will sport a 4-door configuration.
The body length is nearly 3 inches longer than the predecessor model, while the width has also increased by 1.5 inches. The increased size offers additional room for rear-seating passengers.
The high-end Coupe features shorter rear deck and a dramatic slope of the rear light, along with perfect proportions. The rear-end loses the highly-debated “Bangle-butt”. BMW 6 Series Coupe is the first vehicle from the Munich-based automaker to get full LED treatment; driving lights, indication lights, brake lights and rear-lights.
