New BMW 6 Series GT unveiled – replaces 5 Series GT

BMW has unveiled its new 6 Series Gran Turismo, which is set to replace the 5 Series GT.

Compared to the old model, the new 6 Series GT is much better proportioned. Its length has been stretched to 5,091mm while height has been reduced by 21mm. The car’s tailgate has also been redesigned and now sits 64mm lower than the 5 Series GT.

At the front, the car sports a larger front grille flanked by a pair of standard LED headlights. Along the sides, the front fender vents appear to be borrowed from the 5 Series, while its windows are frameless. At the back, the wraparound taillights features three-dimensional styling elements.

Inside, the cabin is largely carried over from the latest 5 Series. There is a freestanding 10.25-inch infotainment screen complete with voice and gesture control. Behind the rear hatch is 610 litres of luggage space, which can be expanded to 1,800 litres when the rear seats are electrically folded down.

Other cabin highlights includes a heads-up display and electrically-adjustable rear comfort seats.

The 6 Series GT will share its range of engines with the 5 Series, ranging from a 2.0-litre turbocharge four-cylinder generating 190kW and 400Nm of torque in the 630i GT, to the 3.0-litre six-cylinder developing 250kW and 450Nm of torque in the 640i GT.

On the diesel front, the 630d GT is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder producing 195kW and 620Nm. All powerplants are matched with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The BMW 6 Series GT will hit showrooms later this year.
