2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 BMW 6-Series

BMW and Porsche are two of the most popular brands in the automotive industry, with some great models in their lineup including the likes of the Porsche 911 and the BMW 6 Series. You may be caught in a dilemma as to which one is a better choice, but this comparison will tell you why Porsche has an upper hand.

Design & Style

Exteriors have been elegantly designed for both the models. The 2018 BMW 6-series is a typical 5-seater model, which can practically seat only four. The middle rear seat is not useful. You will find enough comfort in the front seats, especially on long drives. The cabin looks great with premium materials and leather upholstery, while there are some hard plastics as well.

The 2018 Porsche 911 model is a 4-seater, which can be turned into a 2-seater by folding the rear seats for extra cargo space. There is ample legroom and headroom at the front, making it comfortable driving for long distances. For more comfort, you can upgrade to power-adjustable seats. The interior exudes great ambiance with complete leather upholstery and plenty of quality surfaces.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety are two important parameters to consider when you are looking to purchase a car. For the 2018 BMW 6-series, we have a user-friendly iDrive infotainment system with navigation, Wi-Fi hot spot and wireless charging. Some basic features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are missing. Some of the standard safety features include a rearview camera, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

For the 2019 Porsche 911, we have infotainment system with 7-inch touch screen, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay and satellite radio. With nicely positioned controls, the system is quite easy to use. Safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane change assistance and speed limit indicator.


There are different trims available with the 2018 BMW 6-series. The base model comes standard with a 6-cylinder turbocharged engine that can put out 315 HP. It produces ample power for daily driving. The acceleration is not quite brisk, as expected from a luxury vehicle. In comparison, the Porsche 911 can crank up to 450 HP, delivering smooth acceleration.

The Bottom Line

There is some real competition between high-end models such as BMW 6-series and Porsche 911. If you take a look at the overall aspect from technology and performance to design and handling, there is no doubt Porsche steals the show with a lot to offer. So if you are looking for a great investment this year, make sure you are putting your money on Porsche 911.
