Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

It’s unlikely that you’ll find much to complain about when you step inside the 6 Series. Even entry-level SE cars get leather upholstery as standard that covers the seats, dashboard and large chunks of the doors. Add in attractive trim pieces and controls that work precisely and you’ve got an interior that befits the car’s purchase price.

Regardless of your size, you should be able to get comfortable in the standard electrically adjustable seats. That said, we were disappointed to see that lumbar support is an optional extra on most models. It’s also worth knowing that the pedals are offset to the right, although this doesn’t prove uncomfortable.

Front visibility is good, although you are aware that there is a very long bonnet. Rear visibility isn’t as bad as some coupés, thanks to a decently sized rear window, but you’ll be glad there are front and rear parking sensors as standard.

Once settled, you’ll find all of the major controls fall easily to hand, including the rotary dial for the iDrive infotainment system. This controls a high-definition 10.2in screen with a DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and sat-nav. If you want Apple CarPlay, that’s unfortunately an optional extra. At least the menus are logically laid out, while the dial control is far easier to use on the move than a touchscreen.
