The dashboard has the same orderly layout as most of BMW’s other models, so all the switches are easy to find and the functions are easy to operate. That’s mostly thanks to the iDrive controller, which operates lots of functions through one dial. The supportive seats have full electric operation, too, which makes getting comfortable a breeze.
BMW 6 Series Convertible space & practicality
There’s no shortage of space up front, but limited legroom means the back seats are best left for children. Adults can just about squeeze in, but for short journeys only. The boot is wide and long, but it’s also shallow. You get 250 litres of space with the roof up, 200 in top-down mode.
BMW 6 Series Convertible equipment
You expect a fair amount of luxury kit when your car costs this much, and the 6 comes with luxuries such as heated leather seats that move electrically, climate control, satellite-navigation and automatic lights and wipers. However, some things you’d expect as standard, such as a wind deflector, cost extra. We’d avoid M Sport trim – it adds plenty to the price, but only cosmetic revisions to the car.
