Captivating from the outside, magnificent from the inside. The new BMW 6
Words such as "breathtaking", "irresistible" and "flawless" pepper the
history of BMW convertibles. And now the brand has added a new chapter to a
tradition of open-top cars that stretches back decades. The new BMW 6
Series Convertible fulfils the wishes of discerning automotive aesthetes
with its finely honed sense for sporty driving pleasure, groundbreaking
luxury and sparkling looks. In the exclusive environs of the premium
convertible market, the 2+2-seater makes a convincing case for itself with
the most efficient engines, most advanced chassis technology and most
innovative comfort, infotainment and safety features in its segment.
A sweeping bonnet, set-back passenger compartment, long wheelbase and flat
waistline embody the hallmark proportions of a BMW convertible. The new BMW
6 Series Convertible combines these features with a classic soft-top roof
in customary "fin" design. Powerfully contoured surfaces and the surging
dynamism of its lines promise assured driving properties. The luxurious
ambience of the interior is highlighted by the driver-oriented cockpit
set-up and wraps the front passenger and rear passengers in a feeling of
exclusive security. Nowhere is the high-class functionality of the interior
underlined more prominently than in the redesigned freestanding Control
Display of the standard-fitted iDrive control system.
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is available with two engine variants from
launch. The eight-cylinder powerplant in the BMW 650i Convertible produces
300 kW/407 hp, while an exclusive variant of the six-cylinder in-line
engine with BMW TwinPower turbo, direct
injection and VALVETRONIC --generating 235 kW/320 hp -- has been developed
for the BMW 640i Convertible. Both engines team up as standard with an
eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox. Standard-fitted BMW EfficientDynamics
features include the Auto Start-Stop function in the BMW 640i Convertible.
Chassis technology unmatched in its segment works in tandem with the
cutting-edge engines to ensure even greater dynamic capability and a
similarly discernible improvement in ride comfort compared to its
predecessor. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible comes as standard with Drive
Dynamic Control, which allows drivers to choose their own suspension
settings, while the Adaptive Drive system is available as an option with
electrically controlled dampers and roll stabilisation. In addition to the
standard-fitted electromechanical power steering, another unique feature in
this segment is the optional Integral Active Steering system.
The new BMW 6 Series Convertible also underlines its progressive character
with numerous BMW ConnectedDrive features that none of its rivals can
match. The selection of optional driver assistance systems includes a
rear-view camera, Surround View, BMW Night Vision with pedestrian
recognition and BMW Parking Assistant. The new BMW 6 Series Convertible is
the only car in its segment to be available with a Head-Up Display. Making
its debut in the new soft top, the latest generation of the system uses a
broader palette of colours to create an even more detailed and sharper
