Gran Turismo: The name conjures up an image of a luxury car offering outstanding levels of comfort combined with the sporty lines of a coupe. With this in mind, the designers at BMW have created a new model specially conceived for long trips and brimming with exciting features. Its flowing roofline, combined with a slightly raised seating position, conceals a surprising amount of headroom for passengers in the rear.

Despite its sleek roofline, rear-seat passengers enjoy a luxurious feeling of spaciousness with plenty of headroom. Even the elegant rear seats have electrically adjustable backrests.

The long wheelbase and generously proportioned body create a feeling of spaciousness for front and rear passengers alike.

With more than 60 cubic feet of available luggage space, the new 6 Series Gran Turismo is made for luxury touring and comes with clever details such as a 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat. The engine, chassis, communications and driver assistance systems of the 6 Series GT represent state-of-the-art BMW technology – offering, for example, optional air suspension on both axles, with height regulation and active roll stabilisation.

Adaptability honed to perfection: the new 6 Series Gran Turismo has more than 60 cubic feet of available storage space.

The new Gran Turismo combines outstanding levels of comfort with the sporty lines of a coupe.

The well-designed, easy-to-operate instruments with enlarged Head-Up Display can be supplemented with BMW gesture control – the car responds to the driver’s hand movements. It goes without saying that this latest BMW Gran Turismo also comes with cutting-edge assistance systems, including the optional Steering and Lane Control Assistant. And to help you plan your trip, BMW Connected offers superlative digital communication with the outside world.

Excellent communications and assistance systems make for an even more comfortable driving experience.
