BMW 650i Convertible: No turbo, but new iDrive

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2010 BMW 650i Convertible.

BMW's revived 6-series has always suffered from an unattractive rear, and this problem hasn't been fixed in the 2010 650i Convertible.

And that part doesn't let down, as the 650i Convertible maintains BMW's reputation for superior handling. For the 2010 model year, BMW updated the cabin tech, building in the new iDrive system, but little else is new in this car. The engine doesn't yet take advantage of BMW's new line of turbocharged engines.
