BMW 6-Series details:
The outgoing BMW 6 Series Convertible had controversial look-and-feel when it was launched, but its distinctive Shark Nose and edgy surfaces aged well and set the 6 apart. More than 6000, were sold in the UK. The new model's look is much less surprising, but it's probably better looking overall. The aggressive nose is still there and BMW has stuck with a material hood which mimics the lines of the Coupe's roof as closely as possible. LED rings around the headlights and the Kidney grille make it unmistakeably BMW and shout move over, coming via on the motorway. However, it faces stiff competition in the looks department from the Jaguar XK, Maserati Gran Turismo and Mercedes SL.
The BMW 6 Series Convertible is a 2+2, which means it has two front seatings and two small back seatings. These can be used by children or adults on very short trips. When using the back seatings you forgo the back wind deflector, which sits across the top of them when in use, aiding the flow of air over the vehicle and leaving front occupants less ruffled. If you want to carry four people with the roof down regularly, the bigger Mercedes E-class convertible may provide occupants a comfier ride. The boot measures 300 litres with the roof down, but expands to 350 litres if you don't drop the hood.
The 6 Series Convertible features some of the latest tech, including Surround-view cameras, BMW Night Vision with pedestrian recognition, Park Assist, Lane Change Warning System, Lane Departure Warning System, Speed Limit Screen and full colour Head-up Screen. Traditional equipment contains two-zone conditioning, leather helm with gear change paddles, Aux and USB input, Bluetooth, 10. 2-inch screen, Idrive, sat-nav, trip computer, voice control, parking sensors and Xenon headlights.
