BMW 440i xDrive Convertible
By looking at the 2017 BMW 440i xDrive convertible, you can tell this vehicle was built to explore. What truly makes it a road trip revelation is its responsive and invigorating performance.
A 3.0L TwinPower Turbo engine utilizes six inline cylinders to push out 320 horsepower. Thanks to the electronic throttle control and an eight-speed sport automatic transmission, the 440i xDrive is an adventure-seekers dream.
Of course, no road trip is complete without the proper soundtrack. For listening to your highway hits, the 440i xDrive comes with a Harman Kardon® sound system with 12 strategically placed speakers delivering 515 watts of audio power.
Meanwhile, you and your passengers will be riding in total comfort thanks to the 40.4 inches of headroom and 42.2 inches of legroom in the front row.
BMW 650i xDrive Convertible
What attracts drivers most to the BMW 650i xDrive convertible isn’t its unparalleled style or even it’s 4.4L V8 engine (boasting 445 horsepower). The 650i has something that other convertibles don’t: class. Take the distinctive headlights for example, which feature adaptive LED lights with an automatic high beam feature.
Inside, you’ll find Nappa leather upholstery and gray poplar wood trim. On top of the countless stylistic choices that help elevate the design of the 650i, this convertible never sacrifices practicality.
For instance, the simple three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel looks and feels quite luxurious, but also gives drivers variable-ratio power steering along with access to powerful technology like Bluetooth® streaming audio.
[PRO TIP: Before you head out on your summer road trip, make sure your BMW is up to date on service & maintenance.]
BMW M6 Convertible
The BMW M6 might be one of the most exhilarating convertibles you’ll ever drive. With 560 horsepower coming from the turbocharged V8 engine, this car offers quick acceleration and refined control. From the behind the wheel, you’ll be sitting in a multi-contour driver’s seat with 20-way power and four-way lumbar support.
Of course, no interior would be complete without some helpful gadgets. The M6 comes standard with push button start, automatic climate control with independent temperature setting for the driver and front passenger (a summer road trip essential), and a rearview camera.
