BMW has launched the revised 6 Series Gran Turismo, designed for those looking for sporting ability and compelling functional versatility.

28 May 2020 | International News : Germany


The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is something of an individualist within the premium executive segment and meets the richly varied requirements of modern and extremely discerning customers.

Its combination of long distance comfort and sporting ability, luxurious interior ambience and intelligent functionality is unparalleled in its class.

The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo's precisely modified body design sharpens the profile of this concept
The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo captures the imagination more than ever with its striking sense of outward sportiness and presence, and the layered premium ambience of its interior.

Driving pleasure and efficiency are enhanced by a further developed spread of engines and the introduction of 48V mild hybrid technology.

The progressive character of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is also highlighted by innovations in the areas of driver assistance systems, control/operation and connectivity.

For example, a fully digital instrument cluster and Control Display - each with a 12.3-inch screen - are fitted as standard. The unmistakable character of the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo and its cutting-edge innovations pave the way for the next chapter in its success story.

More than 50,000 examples of the 6 Series Gran Turismo have been sold worldwide to date. The market launch of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo will begin in July 2020. It will be built at BMW Plant Dingolfing, alongside models including the BMW 7 Series luxury sedan and BMW 8 Series luxury sports car.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo offers generous amounts of space and a 600-litre luggage capacity
The design and tuning of its sophisticated chassis technology give the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo its characteristic balance between sporting flair and comfort over long journeys.

The standard rear-axle air suspension takes into account the car's high load-carrying capacity. Adaptive two-axle air suspension with electronically controlled dampers is available as an option and enables ride height to be adjusted manually.

The latest version of the optional Integral Active Steering can come to the driver's aid when manoeuvring by turning the rear wheels as required even at speeds under 3km/h.

The optional Executive Drive combines the adaptive two-axle air suspension with active roll stabilisation, which enhances both the sports performance of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo and the ride comfort on offer.

The distinctive vehicle concept of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo brings generous levels of space and modern functionality to the interior. Its luxurious ambience combines with a driver-focused cockpit, raised seating position and extensive versatility. Boot capacity can be increased from 600 litres to a maximum 1,800 litres, as required.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional comes standard with a digital instrument cluster and a central Control Display
Standard specification also includes electrically adjustable seats for the driver and front passenger, and Dakota leather upholstery. Among the available options are multifunction seats for the driver and front passenger, a rear seat bench with electrically adjustable backrest angle and BMW Individual Merino full leather trim.

Also optional are new interior trim strips, ambient lighting with new dynamic interior lighting, four-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic glass sunroof, the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System and the latest version of the Rear-seat Entertainment Professional.

The standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional also heralds the arrival of the new BMW Operating System iDrive 7 in the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. This not only optimises intuitive operation and customisation of display content, but also allows drivers to use a host of additional digital services.

The new cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps enables extremely fast and precise calculation of routes and arrival times, updating of real-time traffic data at short intervals, and a free choice of words when selecting navigation destinations. Another standard feature in the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with extended functionality.

Additional functions for the state-of-the-art driver assistance systems in the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo take it another few steps along the road to automated driving. These functions enhance driving comfort on long journeys and increase safety in situations where the driver does not have a clear view.

The latest version of the optional Driving Assistant Professional comprises the Steering and Lane Control Assistant, whose functionality now includes Active Navigation.

This system uses navigation data to spot in advance when a lane change will be required, and this can then be performed with ease using the Lane Change Assistant. There is also a new 'automatic formation of emergency lane', function, which steps in to guide the car to the most appropriate side of its lane in tailbacks on the motorway.

The Parking Assistant's range of functions has been extended with the addition of the reversing assistant, which takes control of the steering while backing up for distances of up to 50 metres. The new Drive Recorder allows up to 40 seconds of video footage from different points around the vehicle to be recorded and stored.
