2012 BMW 650 Overview
Putting a premium on style and performance, the 2012 BMW 650 coupe/convertible doesn’t skimp when it comes to luxury as well.
There is a laundry list of new features for 2012 most notably the redesigned exterior that features a longer, lower, and wider body that is sleeker than the previous model. New features include adaptive LED headlights that illuminate oncoming corners, surround-view cameras for easier parking and awareness, and a Bang & Olufsen stereo in the coupe. Other rocket-esque competitors include the Mercedes-Benz E550 coupe and Jaguar XK.
Power and acceleration is the name of the game for the 2012 BMW 650 due to the 400-horsepower, turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 beast of an engine that generates 450 pounds-feet of torque for an impressive zero-to-60 time of 4.8 seconds (4.9 seconds in the convertible). Power flows through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode. Fuel economy ratings are what you would expect from an engine of such power at 15-16 mpg in the city and 22-24 mpg on the highway.
Not only is the 2012 BMW 650 powerful, but it remains composed in the bends with computer-controlled adaptive shock absorbers and BMW’s Driving Dynamics Control, which let’s you adjust the ride quality, power-steering assist level, accelerator response, and automatic transmission behavior. Optional active steering adds rear-wheel steering to the variable-ratio front steering system.
If you opt for the two-door convertible, you are sure to enjoy a fully automatic soft-top that can be deployed at speeds up to 25 mph and when erected gives the 650 a coupe-like appearance. Power-folding, heated side mirrors, retractable headlight washers, LED foglights, and 19-inch alloy wheels are standard, while 20-inch wheels are optional.
Because the dimensions have increased for 2012, the BMW 650 offers more legroom and headroom in its 2+2 seating configuration. 20-way power front seats, Nappa leather upholstery, oak wood trim, LED instrument cluster, navigation system with 10.2-inch display, voice command system, start/stop button, 9-speaker sound system, auxiliary input jack and BMW’s iDrive system are all standard features. Heated front seats and steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and 11-speaker premium sound system are optional.
In terms of safety, the 2012 BMW 650 incorporates several cutting-edge technologies such as Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection, head-up display, active cruise control, blind spot detection, lane departure warning system, and the aforementioned side and top view cameras.
German-crafted luxury, style, and performance are front and center in the redesigned 2012 BMW 650 coupe and convertible.
