General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
2.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
3.CO2 emissions

148g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
4.Has a diesel engine
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.94t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.length

4.89m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.width

2.08m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.ground clearance

122mm

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
5.wheelbase

2.85m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
6.maximum headroom (front)

1.02m

More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

5.5s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

250km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.

Engine

1.maximum torque

630Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.fuel economy (combined)

5.7l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
3.fuel economy (city)

6.9l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.number of cylinders

6

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.horsepower

313hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
6.fuel economy (highway)

4.9l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
2.Has in-car system
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
3.Has a rear-view camera
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
4.Has smart key as standard
BMW 6 Series Convertible 640d (2014)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.number of airbags

4

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
6.USB ports

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
