2016 BMW 6 Series Efficiency

Don’t let the engine’s snarls and growls fool you—it’s still quite efficient. The base 6-cylinder gets 20 mpg city/31 mpg highway and the V8 gets 16/24 mpg. Opting for all-wheel-drive will lower the former’s highway mpg by a single value and the latter’s city mpg by the same amount.

2016 BMW 6 Series Interior

It’s hard not to enjoy yourself inside a 2016 BMW 6 Series with all of its gloss-black trim and brushed-metal accents. Buyers can choose Dakota or Nappa leather and between numerous two-tone color schemes. The telematics system has once again been improved, the controls are well laid-out, and the front seats are supportive and comfortable. Adults will be a bit cramped in the back seat, though.
