2018 BMW 640 Gran Turismo Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

BMW has unveiled an all-new 6 Series in four-door Gran Turismo form. The GT will come in one variation: the 640i xDrive, with all-wheel drive and a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

BMW told us it will continue to sell other 6 Series variants — to wit, the 6 Series convertible and four-door Gran Coupe — for the 2018 model year, even though the Gran Turismo is based on an all-new generation of the car. (BMW dropped the traditional 6 Series coupe for the U.S.) 
 

Exterior
With a wheelbase that's 4 inches longer than the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the new 6 Series Gran Turismo shares subtle cues with the 5 Series and 7 Series — namely, headlights that join BMW's signature double-kidney grille rather than sit out to the side as they do on the current 6 Series. The GT's roofline peaks around the B-pillar to flow all the way down to the rear of the car.

Adaptive LED headlights are standard. The trunk opens as a hatchback, with standard power actuation and hands-free foot activation. A subtle deck-lid spoiler deploys below the rear window when the car exceeds 75 mph; it retracts again when you drop below 50 mph. (Fortunately, Dennis Hopper won't force you to stay above that.) Alloy wheels range from 19 to 21 inches.

Interior
If you've been inside the 5 Series or 7 Series, the 6 Series GT should look familiar. The dashboard has a tablet-like display that measures 10.25 inches, with a thin screen below for climate-contr...

Alloy wheels range from 19 to 21 inches.

Interior
If you've been inside the 5 Series or 7 Series, the 6 Series GT should look familiar. The dashboard has a tablet-like display that measures 10.25 inches, with a thin screen below for climate-control readouts. A vinyl-wrapped dashboard with stitching is standard. Stitched trim adorns many other areas, from the upper doors and steering-wheel hub to portions of the center console. The overhead reading lights have a veined finish that recalls the GT's taillights.

BMW claims there's 38.5 inches' rear headroom — 1.5 inches more than in the 6 Series Gran Coupe. Leather upholstery and a panoramic moonroof are standard. Quilted Nappa leather is optional, as are massaging front seats with ventilation. The backseat fits three, and rear passengers can have optional sunshades and recliners, both power-operated. BMW says the seats fold in a 40/20/40 split via releases in the cargo area, with a rigid cargo cover that stows under the cargo floor.

Apple CarPlay is optional; Android Auto is unavailable.

Under the Hood
The turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder makes 335 horsepower and 332 pounds-feet of torque, driving all wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. BMW says the new 640i xDrive Gran Turismo hits 60 mph in 5.1 seconds — about as quick as its Gran Coupe sibling. The suspension employs standard front coil springs, rear air springs and fixed stabilizer bars. A bevy of performance options include variable-ratio steering, rear-wheel active steering and front air springs, plus adaptive shock absorbers and active stabilizer bars all around.

Safety
Blind spot and lane departure warning systems are standard, as is a forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Optional adaptive cruise control (effective up to 130 mph) can track speeds up to two cars ahead, while BMW says the car can steer itself in the right conditions for up to 50 seconds hands-free — though it's still "a hands-on system," the automaker says. A parking assist system can manage steering and gas and brakes during low-speed parking maneuvers.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
