The first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.
The modern design of the first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is a true eye-catcher. The generously sized long bonnet builds a distinctive and powerful appearance. Frameless doors, coupé-style low roofline and large automatic tailgate convey elegance and sporting flair. The rear design makes the first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo even more attractive. Active rear spoiler provides visual lightness and reduces lift at touring speeds. Luxury Line uses extensive chrome styling in the BMW kidney grille, front bumper, rear apron and tailpipe to project more class. M Sport brings out the sporty character and powerful presence through M Aerodynamics package, which comprises items such as black fins for Air Breathers, a special design for side skirts and rear apron, large front air intakes and M Sport Brake. Exclusive ‘M’ designations on the side, ‘M’ door sill finishers, car key with ‘M’ logo and ‘M’ light alloy wheels reminisce the motorsport legacy of BMW.
The interior impresses with an accomplished balance of dynamic driver-orientation and luxury. Together with an elevated seat position and spacious interior, it ensures first-class comfort. The rear compartment provides three comfortable, full-sized seats with generous legroom and headroom. A relaxed and harmonious lounge atmosphere is created thanks to optimised noise insulation, a two-part panorama glass roof, electrically operated adjustable rear seats with comfort cushions for headrest and electrically operated sunblinds for rear side windows. Ambient Lighting with six selectable light designs creates an atmosphere for every mood.. Exclusive fine wood interior trim with highlight trim finisher Pearl Chrome further accentuates exclusivity. M Sport uses exclusive ‘Nappa’ Leather upholstery in contrast stitching that imbues the interior with a sporty personality. Comfort Seats for driver and front passenger ensure a relaxed drive thanks to electrical-adjustment, memory-function and enhanced thigh-support. The 630d M Sport comes standard with soft close function as well. The soft-close function for the doors is the perfect expression of the vehicle’s elegance and mastery. It allows the doors to be closed conveniently and securely, with little effort or unpleasant noise.
The large, variable-use interior and modern functionality of the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo highlights its qualities when it comes to accommodating luggage and carrying out other transportation jobs. The single-piece tailgate opens and closes electrically as standard, and with Comfort Access (standard on 630d), this process can be initiated hands-free with a movement of the foot under the rear apron. The luggage compartment has a capacity of up to 1,800 litres thanks to a 40/20/40 split. Even with rear seats fully occupied, the boot still offers 610 litres of space.
The first-ever BMW 630d Gran Turismo breaks the innovation barrier with game-changing technologies. Hands do the talking with BMW Gesture Control, which is part of a rigorously thought-out operating concept that recognizes six pre-defined hand movements for control of a number of functions. The BMW Display Key allows drivers to keep in contact with their car round the clock. Besides fuel level and service-related information, the colour display can also indicate whether the car’s doors, windows and panoramic glass sunroof are closed or not. Further highlights include the Welcome Light Carpet, which is projected from the side sill to welcome passengers in glamorous style.
Every BMW pushes the frontiers of technology and innovation.

The Rear-Seat Entertainment system includes two 10.2 inch colour screens behind the front-seat backrests, a BluRay player, HDMI connection for mobiles, as well as various connections for MP3 players and game consoles. BMW Head-Up display in the M Sport variant, with full colour projection, leads to complete concentration on the road.

The 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic Transmission performs smooth, almost imperceptible gearshifts. At any time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency.
Overwhelming driving comfort of the first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is a result of the BMW Driving Experience Control. It enables the driver to choose between different driving modes to suit diverse driving conditions - Sport, Comfort, Comfort+, Eco Pro and Adaptive.
