2019 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo: Niche and Wonderful Sedan so Far



In 2018, the 5 Series Gran Turismo was replaced with 6 Series Gran Turismo, making it for another year with no changes or upgrades. BMW usually designates the “Gran Turismo” to the Sedans that have been raised and elongated exterior than the regular Sedan. In this case, the 2020 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is more practical than the former car. The roofline is two inches taller than the former. Tne 6 Series GT benefits from standard 40/20/40 split-folding seat that helps in making around 65 cubic feet of cargo area.

The sharply styled BMW Sedan is available in a single configuration, 640i xDrive Gran Turismo. It is powered by a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that propels 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with sport and manual shift modes. BMW has also included the “xDrive” intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) system. The 640i xDrive Gran Turismois capable of hitting 60 miles per hour in just 5.1 seconds. The top speed is claimed to be around 155 miles per hour. The engine returns decent fuel economy ratings of 20 miles per gallon city, 28 highway, and 23 combined on premium fuel.2019 BMW 6 Series price starts at $81,500

The 6 Series Gran Turismo is offered in three trim choices:Sport Line, Luxury, and M Sport. The basic Sport Line offers sleek and understated design cues. The Luxury gets few exterior chrome accents. The M Sporttrim offers a bit aggressive aero kit with aluminum interior trim, and major work of M badges. BMW 6 Series Gran Turismohas been equipped with a generous list of standard features, including 19-inch alloy wheels, rear air suspension, dual-zone climate control, adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, power-folding heated mirrors, 18-way power front seats, memory settings, leather upholstery, a leatherette-wrapped dashboard, a 12-speaker, 205-watt sound system, a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay connectivity (but not Android Auto), keyless access and start, ambient lighting with 11 different designs, and a 10.2-inch infotainment system with touchscreen and controller inputs.

Additionally, there are several add-on packages and value-addedfeatures. The Dynamic Handling Package comes with active steering, dynamic damper control, and active-roll stabilization. The Luxury Seating Package adds ergonomic multi-contour heated and cooled front seats. A heated steering wheel, a rear-seat entertainment system, soft-close automatic doors, a heated steering wheel, rear heated seats, and ceramic controls are few available options.

BMW has taken care of safety for the 6 Series Gran Turismojust like the luxury and comfort. In addition to a reversing camera, the standard Active Driving Assistant Package includesforward-collision warning with automatic low-speed mitigation, speed limit recognition, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring,and rear cross-traffic alert. The Available Driving Assistance Plus package tacks on adaptive cruise control with stop and go, active lane-keeping assist, forward cross-traffic alert, traffic-jam assist, and evasion aid, which helps the driver in handling the car precisely. There are also autonomous features like parallel and perpendicular self-parking, a 360-degree camera system, and remote control parking that enables the driver to engage an LCD-equipped key to take the car out of tight spaces. However, the cars test rating for this Sedan is notavailable. The related 5 series earned a top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Unfortunately, the 6 Series Gran Turismo is available with a singleconfiguration. Don’t you worry as the carmaker has provided various optional packages.We liked the Luxury line package because it offers Dakota leather seating surfaces and power-adjustable rear seatbacks. If you are looking to add more safety features, add the Premium package that includes a head-up display and a surround-view camera. You may add driver aids and adaptive cruise control with the Driver AssistancePlus Package.
