2021 BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo

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. It combines the sporting ability for which BMW is renowned with outstanding comfort over long distances. An external appearance brimming with presence and elegance is supplemented by compelling functional versatility.

A unique vehicle concept, rigorously updated

A precisely modified body design and refinements to various interior design details further sharpen the profile of this unique vehicle concept. The new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo captures the imagination more than ever with its striking sense of outward sportiness and the layered premium ambience of its spacious, luxurious interior.

Driving pleasure and efficiency are enhanced by a further developed spread of drive systems and the introduction of mild hybrid technology. The progressive character of the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo is also showcased by the combination of a fully digital instrument cluster and Control Display - each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches - and further innovations in the areas of driver assistance systems, control/operation and connectivity.

The distinctive characteristics of a vehicle breed with no direct rival have been comprehensively updated with the introduction of the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo. Its exterior design brings together the sporting aesthetic of a coupé with the elegant prestige of a luxury sedan. Its sumptuous, variable-use interior creates the ideal environment for assured driving pleasure, standout long-distance comfort and a compelling functionality both in everyday use and on trips away.

Interior and equipment

The new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo lays on an unusually multi-faceted experience of the brand's signature sporting ability, imposing elegance, exclusive comfort and advanced technology. The driver-focused design of the cockpit and raised seating position provide the ideal setting in which to experience driving pleasure laced with poise and assurance.

Customers can enjoy exceptional long-distance comfort and a luxurious ambience thanks to the extremely generous levels of space for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers, the material and build quality taken to a higher level still, and more additions to the selection of high-quality equipment features. Another central element of this unique luxury coupé concept is the variable-use interior, which gives the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo a modern and versatile functionality both in everyday driving and on trips away.

The high-opening tailgate of the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo rises to reveal storage capacity of 600 litres - even with all the seats in use. Automatic tailgate operation remains part of standard specification and loading the boot is even easier with the optional Comfort Access function, which also includes hands-free tailgate opening and closing.

The 40 : 20 : 40 rear seat backrest can be folded down at the touch of a button in the boot via the electric remote unlocking function. This allows the load compartment's capacity to increase to as much as 1,800 litres. The rigid two-section luggage cover can be stowed away in a compartment underneath the boot floor.

Engines with optimised BMW TwinPower Turbo technology

The mild hybrid technology works in unison with the latest version of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for the petrol and diesel engines offered in the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo. The raft of technological measures in the two petrol engines (one four-cylinder and one six-cylinder unit) comprises a twin-scroll turbocharger and the High Precision Injection system, whose injectors are positioned centrally between the valves and operate at maximum pressure increased from 200 to 350 bar. This allows the fuel to be metered with even greater precision, thereby raising efficiency and also ensuring remarkably clean combustion. Other features include VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing and Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing for the intake and exhaust sides.

The exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head - with a water-cooled design that aids thermal management - is found on both petrol units. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine for the new BMW 630i Gran Turismo generates maximum output of 190 kW/258 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). The new BMW 640i Gran Turismo and BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo, meanwhile, are powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine producing maximum output of 245 kW/333 hp and peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) from its 3.0-litre displacement.

The four-cylinder diesel engine and two straight-six diesel units available for the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo make their mark with an even finer blend of pulling power and efficiency. A two-stage turbocharging system now forms part of the BMW TwinPower Turbo technology integrated into all diesel units, the quick response of the smaller turbocharger ensuring particularly eager power delivery. The four-cylinder engine fitted in the BMW 620d Gran Turismo also comes with the latest version of the common-rail direct injection system. Solenoid injectors deliver fuel to the combustion chambers at up to 2,500 bar, resulting in incredibly fine atomisation and a remarkably clean combustion process. The 2.0-litre unit develops maximum output of 140 kW/190 hp, with torque peaking at 400 Nm (295 lb-ft).

The 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine under the bonnet of the BMW 630d Gran Turismo and BMW 630d xDrive Gran Turismo also now incorporates multi-stage turbocharging technology for exceptionally sharp response. It combines with a common-rail direct injection system whose piezo injectors produce maximum pressure of 2,700 bar. Thanks to the variable turbine geometry used in the turbocharging system's low-pressure stage, power comes on line in an instant and continues to build unabated. There is now peak torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) on tap between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm, an increase of 30 Nm (22 lb-ft) over the previous engine. The maximum output of the new diesel unit stands at 210 kW/286 hp, 15 kW/21 hp more than before.

Chassis technology

The exceptional balance of sporting flair and long-distance comfort so clearly evident in the overall concept and styling of the new BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo is also mirrored in the chassis technology's design and tuning. With a long wheelbase and wide tracks, a body boasting a strong yet lighter structure, and perfect 50 : 50 weight distribution, the 6-Series Gran Turismo comes with all the tools to offer supreme ride comfort combined with agile and assured handling in any situation.

The chassis tuning has been refined for the new model and makes allowance for the change in weight balance resulting from the inclusion of mild hybrid technology. Plus, a selection of optional chassis systems enables customers to precisely tailor the vehicle characteristics to their individual requirements. As a result, the car can be specified with either an extremely dynamic or a comfort-focused set-up, or in a configuration offering the perfect balance between the two.
