In the event that you like to spread out, notwithstanding, the unmistakable focus console may feel a touch restricting.

Still, regardless we suggest that new proprietors take a seat and acquaint themselves with iDrive before taking off, as it takes practice to explore between its numerous capacities while the auto’s in movement.

The 6 Series is incredible at pleasing two travelers in advance, particularly with the glorious 16-way situates that come standard on the 650i. The back seat is too little for most grown-ups, in any case. Trunk space measures 13 cubic feet for the roadster a still noteworthy 12.3 cubic feet in the convertible (10.6 with the top down), and both autos have a go through to suit longer things.

WHY YOU SHOULD GET THE 2016 BMW 6 SERIES
