General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (2014)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has four-wheel drive
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (2014)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (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.
4.Has fully independent suspension
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (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.
5.basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
6.basic warranty (km)

80 000km

80 467km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Dimensions

1.weight

2.04t

2.41t

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.maximum headroom (rear)

927mm

945mm

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
3.cargo volume

459l

722l

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
4.wheelbase

2.85m

2.93m

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).
5.length

4.9m

4.88m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
6.maximum headroom (front)

1.02m

973mm

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

Speed

1.coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

0.38Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

678Nm

678Nm

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.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (2014)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
3.number of cylinders

8

8

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.
4.fuel economy (city)

15.7l/100 km

23.5l/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.
5.horsepower

560hp

555hp

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

10.7l/100 km

16.6l/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 M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (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 regenerative braking
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (2014)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
3.USB ports

1

1

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (2014)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.Has in-car system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (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.
6.Has a rear-view camera
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
BMW X6 M (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.
