2008 BMW 6-Series Comfort & Quality

Comfort & Quality

The 2008 BMW 6-Series has exceptional luxury and high-quality materials, but its token rear seats are just that.

The 6-Series has a "comfortable and quiet" interior, Car and Driver says. A wide console "imparts a cozy cabin feel,"ConsumerGuide says. The 6-Series provides good leg and head room "for all but the very tall." Passengers get "firm, supportive seats." Edmunds thinks the cabin has a "somewhat austere feel." Two passengers fit fine, but four aren't comfortable, Car and Driver notes.

The 2008 BMW 6-Series is snug for four, but two fit perfectly amid the top-quality materials and construction.

"Interior storage is poor," ConsumerGuide points out. Car and Driver reports the 6er's cabin has "less rear headroom, less cargo space" than rivals. Edmunds says the 13-cubic-foot trunk remains a "healthy" 12.4 cubic feet in convertibles, though that figure falls to 10.6 cubic feet with the top lowered.

"Fit and finish are excellent," Cars.com says. ConsumerGuide voices concerns, noting that the keyfob "regularly set off the alarm." Edmunds calls the cockpit's materials "top-quality."

The quiet environment lets just enough engine noise in, and the sound is "pleasing at high rpm," ConsumerGuide says. The wind rush in coupes is "modest," they add.
