2012 BMW 640 Overview
All new for 2012 model year, the BMW 640 is an executive luxury coupe that won’t disappoint in performance or comfort. Beautifully styled and well appointed, the third-generation BMW 640 is available as a hardtop or convertible.
The new 3.0-liter twin-turbo, direct-injection straight-six engine is rated at 315-horsepower and features an auto start/stop function to help save fuel. The rear-wheel-drive 640 also features a paddle-shifted eigh-speed transmission with sport and manual modes. EPA estimated fuel economy for the hardtop is 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway – which is among the highest of any BMW model. The convertible gets 21/31 mpg, respectively, and both models require premium gasoline.
The 640 doesn’t just boast horsepower and an autobahn-worthy top speed over 150 mph, but also an adjustable suspension that is firm and authoritative when you want more precision or comfortable when you want to cruise. The optional Active Roll Stabilization goes a step further and reduces body roll in tight cornering.
Inside, the 640 cabin is blessed with premium materials, including Dakota leather upholstery, and excellent fit and finish. Front seats are 10-way power adjustable, while the rear seats are not adult friendly on long trips. The trunk holds a respectable 12.3 cubic feet of cargo (10.6 in the convertible). Standard amenities include a power tilt/telescopic steering column, automatic climate control, and tilting glass-panel roof. The standard 205-watt AM/FM/CD audio system features nine speakers, auxiliary jack, and voice-controlled navigation with a 10-2.-inch display. Optional is a Bang & Olufsen surround-sound system with 16 speakers.
BMW offers a host of upgrade packages that personalize the 640 with different wheels and interior trim options, including full Merino leather. The M Sport package provides multi-contour seats, double-spoke alloy wheels, unique exterior paint choices, and aerodynamic body styling.
Standard safety equipment includes stability control, brake fade compensation, traction control, brake drying, side air bags, knee airbags, and pop-up rollbars for the convertible. There’s also a driver assistance package that includes side- and top-view cameras, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning.
The 2012 BMW 640 is an outstanding touring car with a perfect blend of comfort, road performance, and luxury amenities.
