A grand tourer that has it all? Well the BMW 6 Series certainly comes close. In coupe guise this is a cracking all-rounder, mixing serious performance with impressive fuel economy and that's especially true of the 640d model.

BMW build quality is decent. The 6-Series has a good reputation for reliability but the previous generation had a few recalls. In 2004 it was recalled after reports of a loss of engine power. In 2006 there were two recall: loss of pressure in the rear tyres and the possibility of a rear shock absorber mounting failing. While in 2008 it was recalled for a rear axle carrier.
