2011 BMW 650i xDrive Coupé

As an alternative to the BMW top model’s standard rear-wheel drive, the BMW 650i Coupe can optionally be equipped with the BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system. For the first time in the BMW 6 Series, the intelligent four-wheel drive system ensures superior traction, maximum safety, excellent handling and an optimal performance profile in all weather and road conditions.

The BMW 650i xDrive Coupe is equipped with the most recent version of the electronically controlled four-wheel drive system. The dynamically optimised harmonisation of the variable power distribution primarily supports extremely precise steering when cornering.

The BMW 650i xDrive Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. Its average consumption is 11.3 litres per 100 kilometres; CO2 emission is 262 to 263 grams per kilometre (values per EU test cycle, dependent on selected tyre format).
