Should I Buy a New or Used BMW 6 Series?
The 2019 6 Series belongs to a generation that began with the 2012 model year. The 2019 model adds the Gran Turismo model to the 6 Series lineup and says goodbye to the convertible body style. New standard features for 2019 include Apple CarPlay (in Gran Turismo models) and BMW’s Active Driving Assistant, which incorporates many driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning. There weren’t a lot of changes for 2018, but the 2017 6 Series made wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hot spot standard.
You can potentially save thousands by shopping for a used version of this BMW. Used 6 Series models also represent your only opportunity to get the two-door coupe or convertible body styles.
