Fitted to BMW 2 and 6 Series Convertibles is a canvas roof, or soft top. Generally lighter than the hard top alternative, they're less likely to upset the weight balance of the car, preserving its dynamic road manners. Yet with multilayer construction, the soft top makes for a warm, secure environment, and provides good noise dampening qualities, while a heated rear window makes the cars perfectly suitable for winter use.
On the BMW 6 Series, the rear window is not part of the roof, so can be lowered when the roof is up for gentle ventilation, or raised when the roof is down, to reduce wind buffeting.
Both models' roofs fold away at the touch of a button - the BMW 2 Series in twenty seconds at speeds of up to 30mph and the BMW 6 Series in 19 seconds at up to 25mph. And should rain threaten, the 2 Series closes in approximately 20 seconds, the 6 Series in 24 seconds.
