BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo: The ultimate coupé-sedan hybrid
Best of both worlds
When it comes to choosing your dream car, a compromise often has to be made. While a 2-seater coupe might look chic and effortless to zip around in, you'll probably have to leave a few family members at home. With BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, there is no one or the other — instead, the all-new GT pairs the roomy comfort of a luxury sedan with the aesthetics of a stylish coupé.
According to BMW, the GT models embody the boot space of an estate car and the elevated driving position of an SUV in a vehicle the size of a saloon. It might sound like a mouthful but we're totally down for this perfect crossover. Inside, a driver-centered cockpit awaits while comprising a spacious passenger compartment. Folks in the back can proceed to enjoy three full-size seats with maximised leg room.
The car isn't just pleasing to the eye but boasts a winning combination of intelligent lightweight engineering, with the help of aluminium and high-strength steel grades, for its sturdy framework. As compared to its predecessor, the 5 Series Gran Turismo, the 6 Series sees an increase in power and superior efficiency of the new engines — lending sportier performance and optimum fuel usage.
Navigating dirt tracks or rocky roads? Easy peasy. The car's two-axle air suspension allows its ride height to be adjusted manually — ground clearance, for example, can be increased by 20 millimetres with a touch of a button.
Call it a family favourite or one for the adventurer; this stunning machine is a good fit for just about anyone.
