THE BMW 6 SERIES GRAN TURISMO

THE BMW 6 SERIES GRAN TURISMO

The drive of a Saloon, the roofline of a Coupé and the space of a Touring. With its superior driving dynamics, exceptional interior comfort and cutting-edge technology, the all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is the perfect amalgamation of everything that makes a BMW 'The Ultimate Driving Machine'.

Taking over from the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, the all-new model in the 6 Series line-up is a major step-up from its predecessor, having vastly improved upon the combined characteristics that it was famed for: comfort, elegance and practicality.

A LIGHTER CAR WITH ADDED POWER.

Thanks to the use of aluminium in the chassis, high strength steel in the body and ultra modern magnesium alloys in the engine, the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo has lost 115kg over the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo. This forms part of BMW's EfficientLightweight strategy to increase power yet reduce weight and fuel consumption.

The optional Executive Drive – offered in combination with Integral Active Steering – guarantees supreme cornering capability. The active anti-roll stabilisation compensates for the inclination of the vehicle during cornering to increase driving dynamics and provide greater agility.

Also helping to reduce fuel consumption is the addition of the active rear spoiler, which extends automatically beyond speeds of 75mph. Drag is reduced, roadholding is optimised and lift on the rear axles is decreased. The rear spoiler then retracts once the speed returns to below 50mph.

A FRESH PERSPECTIVE WITH ADDED CONVENIENCE.

Optionally available on SE models and as standard on M Sport models, the panoramic glass roof provides fascinating views for passengers and creates a much more open atmosphere in the interior.

The BMW Icon Adaptive LED headlights with Selective Beam – BMW's top specification headlights – are included as standard across the model line-up. The Selective Beam function of the hexagonal-shaped headlights cleverly monitors the presence of both vehicles in front and oncoming vehicles, and adjusts the high-beam lights to avoid dazzling other road users.

Reversing Assist Camera – also included as standard – facilitates safe manouevring of the car when reversing or parking at speeds up to 9mph. It does so by putting the area behind the car comfortable within the driver's field of vision via the Control Display, allowing an unrestricted rear view.

KEEPING YOU CONNECTED WITH INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES.

Drivers can keep in contact at all times with their vehicle with the BMW Display Key. The key shows various information about the vehicle's status, such as current fuel levels and whether the panoramic sunroof is closed, and selected functions can be controlled via the integrated touch display.

BMW is the first car maker to offer a secure server connection for exchanging and editing emails, calendar entries and contact details – without a smartphone in the car –thanks to the optional Microsoft Exchange function. Addresses from appointment entries can be imported into the navigation system, while phone numbers and email addresses can be dialled with an easy one click transfer so that it can easily be navigated on the move.

Remote 3D View adds extra security by allowing the driver to view live images of their car and its immediate surroundings from a distance on their smartphone. The function can be activated via the BMW Connected App (for iOS).
