The new BMW 6 Series Convertible delivers a drive that is comfortable, safe and above all enjoyable, whether you are simply cruising across town or taking on a longer adventure. This elegant drop-top has a sporty look whether the roof is up or down, and within the striking body you can engage with swathes of advanced BMW technology.
Based on the 6 Series Coupé, the Convertible variant hugs the road in the same way to accentuate its low profile. A sharply-angled windscreen deflects air over the cabin to improve your comfort, and it rises above flowing lines across the body which add a sense of dynamism. The model sits on 18-inch alloy wheels as standard to join other premium features including front LED fog lights, folding mirrors with automatic dimming and a chrome insert for the rear bumper. The softtop roof is finished in black to either complement or contrast with your chosen shade of paint.
The interior seamlessly blends the exterior refinement with the cabin, where fine brushed aluminium inlays and Dakota leather are found. Heated seats allow you to remain comfortable when enjoying top-down motoring during colder weather, and those at the front are electrically adjustable to help you set the preferred driving position. With the roof closed any noise from the road and wind is kept to a minimum, so you can relax and enjoy the journey ahead.
In typical BMW fashion the 6 Series Convertible arrives packed full of advanced technology that enhances each journey. As standard this includes the BMW ConnectedDrive Services which offers BMW Emergency Call, BMW Online Services, BMW Apps, real-time traffic information and more. To keep all occupants entertained the audio system boasts a DAB tuner and 20GB hard disc drive to bring your own choice of music into the car, while Bluetooth® telephone preparation connects you on the move. There’s also a built-in satellite navigation system to guide you to every destination via the most convenient route.
Three BMW TwinPower Turbo engines are your choices for the 6 Series Convertible, topped by the magnificent V8 petrol. It produces 450bhp and a maximum 650Nm of torque to surge from standing to 60mph in around 4.6 seconds. The lower-powered 320bhp six-cylinder petrol achieves the feat in approximately 5.5 seconds, while the diesel alternative returns up to 52.3mpg combined. You can adjust the performance output to suit your individual style and the road conditions ahead instantly through the Drive Performance Control modes, which range from ECO PRO to Comfort, Sport and Sport+. Electric Power Steering (EPS) with Servotronic means that no matter the set-up the vehicle manoeuvres with great agility and control.
The model's ability to excite is clear, and yet it also claims excellent safety credentials. Dynamic Safety combines a number of proactive and reactive systems to protect you during hazardous situations. This includes seatbelts that are tightened in preparation for an imminent collision and automatic braking which minimises the impact. Park Distance Control (PDC) sounds an acoustic warning when approaching obstacles at the front or rear, and there are traditional passive features of multiple airbags too.
For those considering an upgrade in the class the BMW 6 Series Convertible is sure to be a tempting choice. You can experience it first-hand with a test drive from any Williams BMW centre. Get in touch with your nearest retail centre for more information.
