A hand on the steering wheel and a brief glance at the instrument cluster are enough. The purpose of the BMW 6 Series Coupé is absolutely clear: maximum sporty flair in stylish surroundings. All controls are orientated towards the driver and can be used intuitively. Functionality and sporty design are perfectly balanced. Enjoy all the attributes of a sports car without having to do without exclusive comfort.
The multifunctional instrument display with Black Panel technology and a screen diagonal of 10.25″ provides a highly impressive visualisation of the driving experience. At the same time, it helps the driver to concentrate on the road ahead by displaying relevant information and prevents distraction.
Three different modes and their specific characteristics – each of which have their own colour scheme and graphic style – can be displayed in the instrument cluster: COMFORT, ECO PRO and SPORT modes. While COMFORT mode largely retains the appearance familiar up to now, blue tones dominate the display in ECO PRO mode, in which the new EfficientDynamics and Bonus Range displays aid the driver in achieving the most efficient driving style possible. SPORT mode, in contrast, is recognisable by its red colours, and includes an engine output display.
The multifunctional instrument display also allows navigational information to be displayed, including tips from the route-ahead assistant, as well as lists from the entertainment and telephone functions.
The interior of the BMW 6 Series Coupé has been designed to meet the highest demands in terms of sporty, luxurious style. The sports seats are made of high-quality leather and perfectly match the interior. The same applies to the centre armrest, with storage compartments providing sufficient space for items of all kinds. Meanwhile the 460-litre luggage compartment can accommodate bulky luggage such as sports or travel bags, and drinks holders are provided in the centre console.
Sporty driving requires fast reactions. This is why every switch, every indicator and every control in the BMW 6 Series Coupé is always precisely where you would intuitively expect it to be.
To the left of the steering wheel, you will find the switch for driver assistance systems and light settings, while directly in front of you is the instrument cluster with all information relevant to driving and safety − which can be projected directly into your field of vision by means of the optional BMW Head-Up Display.
Just to the driver’s right there is space for the optional, free-standing 10.25″ full-colour display. Directly below are the favourite buttons, allowing self-defined functions and settings to be accessed directly. A little lower down are the air conditioning controls.
The gear selector lever with Driving Experience Control is located in the centre console − immediately adjacent and intuitively within the driver’s reach. Next to this − also easy for the front passenger to operate with one hand − is the iDrive Touch Controller.
Innovative and easy to operate – the comfort access system makes it possible to open the vehicle doors and start the engine without using the car key. The key, which may be in a trouser pocket or briefcase, is automatically recognised upon approaching the car. Once the door has been automatically unlocked, the driver can get in and start the engine by pressing the Start/Stop button. Functional reliability is guaranteed thanks to key authentication.
