About BMW 650xi
The BMW 6-series is now an anomaly when compared to the traditional size and body-style classifications because it is larger than all of the two-door luxury coupes, with the exception of the even larger and more expensive S-class coupe produced by Mercedes-Benz. Even within the 6-series range, the Gran Coupe four-door handily outsells the two-door and the convertible when combined in terms of total sales volume. Sales of fast-roofed four-doors exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7 are trending in the direction of being more popular in the midsize luxury segment. If you go to the dealerships for Audi, Lexus, Jaguar, Infiniti, or Cadillac, you will not find a vehicle that is comparable in size and has two doors that is comparable to this BMW 650i.
A dressier interior with handsome two-tone leather treatments has been added to the 2016 BMW 5 Series, as well as six adaptive LED headlights, a grille with one fewer bar in each of the signature kidneys, tweaks to the design of the tail design that emphasize the vehicle’s width, and so on. Those midterm updates on the already pretty two-door are not sufficient to send us to the test track at this time. But, aha, the twin-turbo V-8 now produces 445 horsepower, which is 45 more than it had when we tested the then-new 2012 edition of the vehicle in 2012. The increase in power was introduced in 2013, when everyone’s attention was focused on the M6.
More power is never a bad thing, but the output of the V-8 wasn’t one of the few things wrong with the car in 2012 that we could find fault with. Some of those unfavorable characteristics are still present on the 2016 model, as well as on recent BMWs in general: We are not fans of the obtuse shifter for the standard eight-speed automatic transmission (the dual-clutch seven-speed automatic and manual six-speed alternatives are now reserved for the M6); the electrically assisted steering does not measure up to the high standards of tactile feedback that once defined BMW; and the soft, luxury-car handling might bother us less if the sight of the roundel did not set our expectations so high. The fact that the 650i delivers a combination of style, performance, and elegance that is driving sales well beyond Munich’s modest expectations is unaffected by any of these factors.
