The Top Gear car review:BMW 6 Series
For:Excellent diesel engine, good to live with
Against:A better car in 4dr Gran Coupe form, M6 is disappointing
What is it?
BMW’s enormous GT that’s best seen as a continent crosser rather than the dynamic sports car many expect. Don’t bother with the petrol engines and choose the peachy diesel: yes, it’s preferable even to the mighty M6, which somehow misses the target.
Last year’s facelift saw the grille widened and the bumpers reshaped among other things. Truth be told, the differences aren’t huge (as you’ve probably noticed)
