Space & practicality

How it copes with people and clutter

The 6 Series is a big car so it’s no surprise to find that there’s plenty of room up front. Head and leg room are ample and the car is wide enough to give both front seat passengers somewhere to stick their elbows.

The rear seats are big enough to take a couple of average height adults, but anyone tall won’t want to be your friend if you stick them back there for too long. Ultimately though, if you want a two-door coupe with more rear seat space, it’s unlikely you’ll find anything better unless you jump up to a Mercedes S-Class Coupe.

As for the boot, that’s actually a pleasant surprise. It might not be very tall but it’s long and wide enough to easily swallow a couple of bags of golf clubs or week’s worth of luggage should you want to go touring. To put it another way, the capacity is on par with some small SUVs. Should you need even more practicality, a ski hatch is an optional extra.

Back up front, there are decently sized door bins, a pair of cupholders in front of the gearlever and a huge cubbyhole under the armrest. This even has a wireless charging spot for compatible mobile devices as standard. We’d recommend a screen cover, however – your phone is held in place by a plastic clip that could scratch your screen if you drive too enthusiastically. Rear storage is less impressive, but then it’s unlikely you’ll have anyone back there for too long.
