The BMW 6 Series has an above average boot space (457 litres of luggage with the seats up).
This would allow one pushchair and 2 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 3 large bags or 3 cabin bags instead.
Worth knowing, the BMW 2 Series MPV is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 560 litres.
This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower MINI Coupe.
This car is actually 107mm longer than the average street space, so parallel parking will never be easy.
The fastest BMW 6 Series from 0-60, is the 3.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 630 lbs/ft torque and 313 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 5.3 seconds.
The closest rival in its class is the Jaguar XK 5L petrol, which will beat your BMW 6 Series to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.
