BMW 6 Series Convertible review

Published: 13 Jan 2015
6 Series Convertible is a very elegant, laid back and convincing car indeed. Diesel is a gem and proves open-top oil-burners can work

Good stuff

640d diesel is an absolute gem, well-equipped

Bad stuff

Restricted boot-space will irritate committed grand-tourers


What is it?

The old 6-Series was seemingly designed by a team of blindfolded chimps throwing parts into a bath in a BMW spares warehouse. So this time BMW has given it a more sensible getup, as well as ditching any notion of it being a sportscar. Fret not, though – it drives even better now, and it’s still flash, except now in a “I’ve got a second home in the Seychelles” sort of way, as opposed to a “I’ve got the means to have you kneecapped” kind of way.

Take note: the 6 has just been handed a (minor) facelift, which in true German fashion has made every little bit of the 6 a tiny bit better. Nice.

What's the verdict?

Replaces shock value with class and refinement, and is better for it.
