New York Auto 2012 Coverage and Photos of BMW's display

BMW at New York Auto Show

We were on hand at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York to watch BMW show off the new X1, M6 Coupe, M6 Convertible, and 6 Series Gran Coupe at the 2012 New York International Auto Show.

The BMW X1

BMW X1

BMW officially takes the wraps off the new facelifted X1 that is finally making it's way to the United States. The new X1 features some updated styling and is offering up at least two exclusive models to the US market. Models being offered include the sDrive28i, xDrive28i and xDrive35i. This marks the first rear wheel drive X model and it is paired with the wildly popular N20 motor that is currently featured throughout the BMW line up.

BMW 2013 US Spec X1 Pricing
  • BMW X1 sDrive28i starts at $31,545
  • BMW X1 xDrive28i starts at $33,245
  • BMW X1 xDrive35i starts at $39,345

For complete pricing, including options and packages as well as 100 photos of the 2013 US spec X1 read our complete coverage of the X1 at the New York Auto Show

The BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible

BMW M6 Convertible

The new BMW M6 Coupe is making it's debut in the US while the M6 Convertible is here for it's worldwide debut. Both the M6 Coupe and M6 Convertible share a monster V8 engine with TwinPower Turbo Technology that produces a whopping 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. The new model bring numerous new options for BMW including M Carbon Ceramic Brakes and LED headlights.



Pricing for the M6 Coupe starts at $106,995 with M6 Convertible pricing beginning at $113,995.

Read more about the release of the M6 here

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

The 6 Series Gran Coupe may appear as a contradiction to those who define a coupe or sedan by the number of doors it has. This is the first ever four door coupe from BMW with no compromise on design and performance. The Gran Coupe is available as a 640i with 315 horsepower and the 650i with 450 horsepower.

Read more about the 6 Series Gran Coupe here

There is more coming from our coverage of the New York Auto Show. Stay tuned!

the x1 needs suv size tires.. without em its just an e91 that sits higher. was at the show today. definitely do not like the words gran coupe in the rear side window. also cant believe someone stole the xdrive badge off the new f30. the frozen m's look great and my god, the brakes on the m6 are huge! glad to see some functional cup holders in the f10m5. the e90s suck!

they stole the badge? lol, fukin New Yorkers.

I dont agree with u on the X1 looking like a E91, no way. the E91 is much longer and much more sleek looking, the X1 looks like a mini 5 GT than a E91. I just spent last weekend driving around in a E91 and ive been seeing X1s daily for the past 3 months. Dont see any resemblance between those two.

the x1 is ON the e91 platform and shares a lot of the same inside. it has passenger car tires on it. needs some knobby tires on it for me to call it an suv.

Not arguing that, just saying i dont think the 2 look anything alike.
Remember also, BMW calls em SAVs.

I assume you're referencing the horizontal hood/bumper line? European pedestrian safety laws require more plastic. You won't see a metal hood wrapping down like the E46 again unfortunately.
