BMW 6 Series Review

Expert Review by Maxabout

Exterior

Looking at the outer side of the fresh 6-Series Gran Coupe, one can easily notice the car’s outlines and exteriors that are inspired by the ebbing of waves. This enhances the car’s external design to make a feeling of sporty grace which emphasizes the lavish appeal and elegant look of the four-door BMW 6 Series. The car’s front end is filled by big and diagonal BMW kidney grille plus a V-shaped top that flawlessly combines with the silhouettes of the headlights, and air intakes. The stripe at the front goes with strongly flared wheel arches and LED fog lamps that are placed well to the exterior plus a lower air pipe split into three sectors by model-specific L-shaped electroplated bars. The new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe comes with Adaptive Xenon headlights as usual, while car owners can add an Adaptive LED Headlights as an option. As many car critics say, the low and smooth lines of the BMW 6 Series are intensely impressive. The passenger section appears very unique and enticing as the window silhouette expanses across the C pillar.

The frame-less door windows also add elegance and indicate a sporty look. To add more cachet to the car’s design, the long side windows improve the use of light to boost the feeling of spaciousness while inside the vehicles. The C pillar includes an elite embossed Gran Coupe lettering behind the glass found at the lower corner of each rear window. All of these features symbolize the charming elegance of the BMW 6 Series. On a lateral view, the model can be easily recognized by its four-door layout and its wheelbase that is lengthier compared to any other BMW model. It also has a longer passenger compartment and comes with side windows that feature first-class Chrome Line Exterior surrounds. This feature also extends at the back portion of the C-pillar. Viewing it from behind, the trunk top and rear face both have adulate surfacing than most cars in this series. The two-part L-shaped back lights share the outlines of the car’s BMW 6 Series models. In addition to the horizontal and V-shaped lines at the back, the BMW 6 Series suggests powerful and energetic style. Another unique feature of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is the third brake light that comes along the entire width of the back window.

Interior

The inner design of BMW 6 Series is a signature of a perfect mixture of elegance, luxury and force which leads to a harmonious formation of the front and back seating. The driver-oriented floor and the front passenger area are enclosed by sophisticated arched surfaces and the roominess of the rear passenger partition that ensures refined and luxurious coziness in all driving situations. The wheelbase is 113 millimetres longer and gives way for extra legroom enjoyed by back-seat passengers. The internal design impression that the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe has set forth ensures first-rate spatial variability. There is plenteously more than enough space to easily accommodate two passengers at the back. The five passenger capacity seating arrangement also gives enough space for a third rear passenger on short journeys. The boot has a capacity of 460 litres, which can be pushed up to 1265 litres because of the folding rear-seat backs and the through-loading system.

Engine

BMW 6 Series is available with 2 engine options: 1 diesel and 1 petrol. The 4395cc, V8 petrol engine generates maximum power of 407 bhp with maximum torque of 600 nm. The 2996cc petrol engine develops maximum power of 313 bhp with maximum torque of 630 nm. The 6-Series Convertible is available in only petrol (powered by 4395cc, V8 petrol engine). The Coupe is available in both petrol and diesel.Gran Coupe is available in only diesel.

Mileage

The BMW 6 Series appears up and the large when started. Its twin-blown diesel engine roars like a lion ready to take off the road. It is a better choice when talking about the six-pot petrol, which does not possess a low-down torque. The oil-burner gives remarkable figures, which makes it feel more athletic. Performance is balanced with the petrol with a top speed of 155mph and 0-62mph in 5.4sec. In fuel consumption, it is much improved with 49.6mpg in the EU Urban cycle versus 31.7mpg for the petrol.

Safety Features

The framework of the BMW 6 Series includes a double-track control arm anterior axle and an integral back axle along with electromechanical navigation and Servotronic. Car owner can also add a Dynamic Damper Control and an Adaptive Drive that comes with Dynamic Drive Stability control, as optional equipment. Standard safety features include front airbags and side airbags that are integrated into the seat-backs. Head airbags have been installed for front and rear seats and comes with three-point automatic seat-belts for all seats. The belt force limiters, seat-belt pretensioners at the front and ISOFIX child seat fasteners at the back make it a safe ride. Intelligent lightweight construction condenses the vehicle’s overall weight since the bonnet, doors and most of the chassis parts, including the suspension supports, are made of aluminium. The anterior side walls consist of thermoplastic material, while the boot cover is made of fiber glass compounds.

Verdict

The good points found in BMW 6 Series is smooth and strong which adds to its versatility. It also has a great top setup for convertible models. On the other hand, some dislike the instrument panel and controls as well as its fuel economy. Some find the drive hefty because of its artificial steering feel. Tall drivers are having a little problem with the headroom as it has been made quite smaller. Overall, this BMW's flagship sporty car, 6 Series seats 4 to 5 people and available as a coupe or convertible so it can be a good choice for families with 4 to 5 members. Standard models come with a choice of 6-cylinder or V8 engines for those who want speed. Above anything else, it is a good buy for a car having top-performance tuned by BMW's Motorsports arm. If you want to compare it to other models within the segment, you may look into Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, Audi A7 and Jaguar XK.
