Since the rise of BMW 6-series, BMW has managed to obtain a sizable spot in the car market due to few competitors in the convertible marketing portfolio. Along with that reason is the fact that Mercedes and Audi convertibles are more expensive, therefore making the BMW the choice of most people.
Under the Hood
Featuring a turbocharged and intercooled V-6 engine, the convertible runs at 315 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 330 lb-ft torque at 1400 rpm. It also employs an 8-speed automatic transmission along with manual shifting mode for those who wanted to take more feel of their driving. However, it is noticeable that the car emits quite a noise when driving at 70-mph cruise. And when compared to Mercedes and Mustang GT, this one will look inferior somehow.
It is somehow noticeable that, despite the modern design, the car still employs an immaculate veneer that was literally applied to its console. Some are quick to point out that it’s like zebrawood but we’re also quick to notice that the design effect is both modern and refreshing.
