New 2017 BMW 6 Series Release Date and Info

2017 BMW 6 Series Review

The new 2017 BMW 6 Series is sure to satisfy shoppers who crave for style, comfort, refinement, and power. It is available in both soft-top convertible and sleek coupe body configurations. For 2017, BMW takes the 6 Series to a whole different level with features such as a surprisingly ample cargo space for the coupe, a solid performance, well-constructed and impeccably appointed interior, and inspiring sounds from the optional V8 engine. The existing roster of features also gains a standard Wi-Fi hotspot and a wireless phone charger. The iDrive infotainment system has also been updated.

While performance, quality, comfort, and style are more often than not prerequisites for luxury coupes, the 2017 BMW 6 Series manages to seamlessly integrate all of those features into one package. The cabin comes with plenty of sound-deadening materials that help insulate occupants from the imperfections in the surrounding environment, while in the meantime also offering acres of top-notch materials.

The 6 Series ups its appeal ante with the coupe and convertible options that it gives to buyers. Shoppers can take it even further with the exclusive and powerful Alpina B6, a high-performance M6, and a four-door Gran Coupe version.

Concessions are often made during the construction of a high-performance vehicle. But whether you opt for the 2017 BMW 6 Series Convertible or coupe, the only significant flaw you’ll encounter is the limited rear seat space. In terms of the available competition, buyers may find the 2017 Porsche 911 and the 2017 Jaguar F-Type better placed in terms of possessing sporty credentials. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, although much expensive, offers better appointments and an engaging driving quality. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes closest in terms of the cabin layout design, performance, and appointments, however, it is less engaging to drive and is more conservative to some extent.

We highly recommend the 2017 BMW 6 Series courtesy of the all-rounded nature and its strong mix of prestige, performance, and luxury.

The wheelbase and the ground clearance also remain unchanged at 112.4 inches, and 4.9 inches respectively.

Some of the features to expect include 18-inch wheels, automatic adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, LED foglights, automatic wipers, 19-inch wheels (M Sport package), and an aerodynamic body kit.

2017 BMW 6 Series Interior

As you’d expect, the interior comes with an abundance of high-quality materials and technologies. Plastics are also available but are sturdy, and good looking. Controls are logically placed and driver-centric. For ease of use and responsiveness, the BMW’s iDrive infotainment system arguably remains the best in class.

Seats are well contoured and cushioned, and therefore provide excellent comfort. Some of the standard accessories and features available include keyless entry and ignition, a dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, ambient interior lighting, heated auto-dimming and power-folding mirrors, a rearview camera, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, heated six-power front seats, a universal garage opener, and a sunroof.
