New or Significantly Altered Models

2013 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe
The 6-Series Gran Coupe is a new 4-door vehicle with seating for up to 5 passengers. Coming from the same family, the Gran Coupe is similar in size to the 5-Series sedan but its sleeker styling has a lower roofline and longer body. Gran Coupe models equip either a 315-bhp 3.0l inline six (640i) or a 445-bhp 4.4l V8 engine (650i). Both are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is offered on the V8 model (650i xDrive).
2013 BMW X1
The new X1 slots below the X3 in BMW's lineup of crossovers. Compared to the BMW X3, the X1 is shorter by 7 inches in length, 4 inches narrower in width and 5 inches shorter in height. Two powertrains are offered: a 241-bhp turbocharged four-cylinder (sDrive28i/xDrive28i) and a 300-bhp inline six-cylinder (xDrive35i). A six-speed automatic is standard on all models.
