A while back, we discussed what the best looking BMW was. I had said that I thought it was the 6 Series Gran Coupe, and I still stand by that. Except, now I’m more leaning toward the 6 Series as a whole, both Coupe and Gran Coupe. After the headlights were redone, and some interior bits were updated, I feel as if the 6 Series is the prettiest of all BMWs.
That’s not to say that the rest are ugly. In fact, BMW has many great looking cars at the moment. The 2 Series is the best looking small coupe on the market, the 4 Series is a stunner and the i8 is breathtaking. But as far as actual beautiful cars go, the 6er is the one that does it for me. It just has all the right curves, the long, low hood and low roofline give it the classic BMW looks. Regardless of coupe or Gran Coupe, M or non-M, it simply looks fantastic.
And that’s just the outside. The interior of the 6er is easily my favorite of the Bavarian bunch. It’s so luxurious and different from, not only every other BMW, but from everything else on the road. I simply love the way that the right side of the center console swoops upward into the dash and is wrapped in beautiful leather. Or how the giant nav screen seems nestled into a cozy little nook made out of leather. It’s just such a luxurious and desirable cabin.
Then there’s the M6, which looks absolutely menacing. Especially in Gran Coupe form. The, somewhat, double bubble roof and giant dished wheels give it an angry look. Both Coupe and Gran Coupe look like they mean business. Even if they aren’t the best handling M cars out there, they definitely look the part.
That’s the beauty of the 6 Series — it can look so luxurious and pretty, yet still be able to look mean and aggressive. It takes a car designed with perfect balance to be able to do such a thing. Because even the standard 6 Series can look aggressive and even the M6 can look graceful. So maybe that’s the perfect way to describe the 6 Series styling. Aggressively graceful.
