The previous BMW 6 series convertible had what many deemed to be “controversial styling” but its distinctive looks have stood the test of time and the new model looks even better. On the inside there’s an instant feel of quality which is complemented by the modern feel of crisp sat nav graphics and even a full colour Head-Up display that hovers clearly in the windscreen.
How does the 6 Series Convertible perform? Well, the simple answer is admirably with BMW delivering two petrol engines badged as the 640i and 650i . The smaller motor is a 3-litre turbocharged six-cylinder with 320bhp, hurrying the Convertible along to 62mph in 5.7 seconds. The 650i is fitted with a 4.4-litre V8 with twin turbochargers and 407bhp, which gets you to 62mph in 5 seconds.
As with many in the BMW range the running costs are a huge pull and the 6 Series Convertible is helped massively by the Efficient Dynamics technology. The 640i emits 185g/km of CO2, and manages 35.8mpg. BMW is offering a five-year servicing package costing £400 and the 640i is expected to hold on to 39 per cent of its value after three years of ownership from new.
Why buy the BMW 6 Series Convertible?
Ultimately this car is the ideal all rounder offering fantastic performance, excellent handling and with its great looks and manageable running costs it’s a strong challenger to the likes of the Jaguar XK, Maserati Gran Turismo and Mercedes SL.
