Expert Quotes:

Front and center is a 10.2-inch display screen, which can bring up navigation, real-time traffic, or the optional ConnectedDrive infotainment system through BMW's love-it-or-hate-it iDrive interface knob.
Motor Trend

Other options include 20-inch wheels, LED headlights, active steering, active roll stabilization, an infrared night vision display, BMW Apps enhanced smartphone integration, extended leather upholstery and enhanced interior trim materials.
Edmunds

Buyers seeking to err on the side of comfort might want to stick with the smaller 18-inch standard wheels and tires.
Kelley Blue Book

Upgrades naturally raise the price: slick ceramic-coated switches are $650, a sparkling 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system is $3,700 and a leather-swaddled dashboard costs $1,500.
New York Times


Like any BMW, the 2012 6-Series offers an impressive standard specification plus the ability to add lots of high-tech goodies--for a price.

Some of the highlights of the 6-Series' standard equipment list include the iDrive infotainment and control system, which uses a console-mounted knob and 10.2-inch widescreen display to enable multi-function access and control of the car's systems; rearview camera plus front/rear parking sensors; and the BMW Assist telematics and help line service (four year contract).

Of course there are abundant options to upgrade the already very nice standard equipment at almost every turn; from upholstery to trim, stereo to navigation, the list of what you can get is longer than the list of what you can't.

Some of the best upgrades available for the new 6er include a night-vision system with pedestrian detection; Bang & Olufsen sound system; active cruise control; top- and side-view cameras; heads-up display; and customized interior and exterior aesthetics via BMW's Individual program.

Of course, you'll not just end up with a very nice, very loaded 2012 6-Series if you tick all of these boxes; you'll also end up with a very expensive one.

Conclusion

Night vision and 180-degree cameras are just two of the 6er's high-tech features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
