The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.

Posted on 14. Jun, 2017 by in BMW Canada

The considerable functionality offered
by this physique format and a high standards of pulling comfort and
expanse that yield a ideal environment for a relaxing journey
are among a facilities that tangible a impression of a new car’s
prototype – a owner of this automobile genre. These strengths have
now been serve honed in a new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, whose
systematic expansion from a BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo is
quite clear in a new model’s sporting elegance, highly
modernized apparatus features, innovative control and assistance
systems, and a jump brazen in impetus and efficiency.

“The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo offers a singular multiple of
lush interior comfort and stretchable practicality, finished within
a truly superb design. Coupled with a sporty, energetic driving
characteristics a business enjoy, this automobile is an outstanding
automobile that serve enhances a tip finish of a BMW model
line-up,” comments Dr Ian Robertson, Member of a Board of Management
of BMW AG, obliged for Sales and Brand BMW.

The new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo will make a open entrance at
Frankfurt’s International Motor Show (IAA) in Sep 2017. The
marketplace launch will afterwards get underway in Nov 2017, when there will
primarily be a choice of 3 engines from a BMW Group’s latest
era of energy units. The BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive
complement will also be accessible for dual indication variants from launch.

Lighter, sportier, some-more gentle and more
A multiple of intelligent lightweight
engineering and increasing use of aluminium and high-strength steel
grades for physique and framework components has shaved an normal of around
150 kilograms off a weight of a new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo
compared to a effusive model. Together with a considerable
alleviation in a car’s aerodynamic properties, a boost in power
and a higher potency of a new engines, this endows a car
with sportier opening during a same time as optimising fuel economy.
Depending on a engine variant, a scurry from 0 to 100 km/h
(62 mph) is finished adult to 0.7 seconds quicker (BMW 630i Gran
Turismo) than in a homogeneous prototype model, while fuel
expenditure and emissions total in a NEDC exam cycle are as much
as 15 per cent reduce (BMW 640i Gran Turismo, BMW 630d Gran Turismo).
Handling dynamics and pulling comfort in a new BMW 6 Series Gran
Turismo both reap a advantages of a endless improvements done to
framework technology. Self-levelling atmosphere cessation comes as customary at
a back axle, while float comfort generally can be serve enhanced
by opting for a Adaptive cessation (featuring front and back air
cessation and Dynamic Damper Control). The Executive Drive option,
that is charity in multiple with a Integral Active Steering
complement and also includes active hurl stabilisation, gives a vehicle
a sportier edge. The two-axle atmosphere cessation allows a vehicle’s ride
tallness to be practiced manually, definition that belligerent clearway can be
increasing by 20 millimetres during a hold of a symbol to negotiate dirt
marks or high ramps, for example. The automobile can also be lowered by
10 millimetres – possibly manually by again pulling a button, or
automatically when SPORT mode is intent around a Driving Experience
Control switch or a car’s speed exceeds 120 km/h (75 mph). All
discretionary cessation systems are now accessible in and with BMW xDrive.

Design: energetic proportions and elegant, flowing
An extraneous length of 5,091 millimetres (an
boost of 87 millimetres on a predecessor), an unvaried breadth of
1,902 millimetres and a rebate in tallness of 21 millimetres (to
1,538 millimetres) give a new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo dynamically
stretched proportions. The front finish has a distinctive, powerful
appearance, with a lenses of a customary LED headlights extending
all a approach to a vast BMW kidney grille. BMW’s signature sporting
magnificence comes to a front quite prominently when a automobile is
noticed in profile, interjection to informed facilities such as a long
bonnet, shock positioning of a cabin, a wheelbase of
3,070 millimetres, doors with frameless windows, and an elongated
window outline stretching low into a back end. The roofline sweeps
down, coupe-style, to combine into a tail territory that is now
64 millimetres reduce in height. Rear lights with three-dimensional
styling supplement an eye-catching touch.

The low-slung conformation also has a profitable outcome on a car’s
aerodynamic properties, mixing with active atmosphere strap control and
other measures including Air Curtains, Air Breathers and an
automatically fluctuating back spoiler to reduce a drag coefficient
(Cd) from a predecessor’s figure of 0.29 to as small as 0.25.

Ideal mix of pulling pleasure, long-distance comfort and
The interior has been designed to provide
a driver-focused cockpit and an intensely atmospheric passenger
compartment. The lifted seating position optimises a driver’s
all-round perspective and, together with a faultlessly ergonomic
arrangement of a controls, helps to emanate an despotic clarity of
pulling pleasure. The cabin’s lines, materials and precision
workmanship impregnate it with a rarely sophisticated, reward feel. The
back cell of a new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo comprises three
full-size seats charity maximised legroom. Exhaustive optimisation of
a cabin’s wrapping sees a new model’s distant agree roofline still
translating into additional headroom, while a restyled back chair section and
softened soundproofing make it even some-more gentle to transport in. The
electrically-adjustable comfort seats optionally accessible for the
back concede a backrest angle to be altered during a pull of a button.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo facilities a one-piece tailgate that
opens and closes electrically as standard. The foot ability of
610 litres is 110 litres incomparable than a prototype model’s. The boot
sill has been lowered by some-more than five centimetres and is now flush
with a foot floor. The 40 : 20 : 40 separate backrest can be released
remotely and folded prosaic electrically around a symbol in a boot. All of
that means that limit bucket space has increasing to 1,800 litres – up
100 litres on a effusive model. The two-piece luggage compartment
cover has a firm structure and can be stowed divided in a compartment
underneath a foot floor.

New era of engines, eight-speed Steptronic transmission
as standard, BMW xDrive as an option.
The choice of
engines accessible for a new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo feature
cutting-edge TwinPower Turbo record and group adult with the
eight-speed Steptronic delivery as standard. The 2.0-litre
four-cylinder petrol section in a new BMW 630i Gran Turismo delivers a
limit outlay of 190 kW/258 hp and rise torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft).
It propels a automobile from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and
posts total fuel expenditure of 6.6–6.2 litres per 100 kilometres
(42.8–45.6 mpg imp)* and CO2 emissions of 152–142 grams per kilometre*.

Generating an outlay of 250 kW/340 hp and limit torque of 450 Nm
(332 lb-ft), a 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line petrol engine enables
a new BMW 640i Gran Turismo to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from
rest in 5.4 seconds, while a new BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo is a
parasite faster during 5.3 seconds. The total fuel expenditure of a two
models comes in during 7.4–7.0 litres per 100 kilometres
(38.2–40.4 mpg imp) and 8.2–7.7 litres per 100 kilometres
(34.5–36.7 mpg imp)* respectively, that equates to CO2 total of
between 169 / 159 grams and 187 / 177 grams per kilometre*.

The 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line diesel engine producing
195 kW/265 hp and rise torque of 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) can further be
total with all-wheel expostulate as an option. The new BMW
630d Gran Turismo and a new BMW 630d xDrive Gran Turismo competition from 0
to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds and 6.0 seconds respectively. The
total fuel expenditure and emissions total are 5.3–4.9 litres per
100 kilometres (53.3–57.7 mpg imp)* and 139–129 grams per kilometre*
for a BMW 630d Gran Turismo and 5.9–5.5 litres per 100 kilometres
(47.9–51.4 mpg imp)* and 154–144 grams per kilometre* for the
BMW 630d xDrive Gran Turismo.

Uniquely versatile control system.
The new BMW 6
Series Gran Turismo is versed with a arrangement and control system
charity peerless flexibility for handling vehicle, navigation,
communication and infotainment functions. At a heart of it all is
a iDrive system, finish with a Touch Controller on a centre
console and a Control Display, now in a form of a freestanding
touchscreen. The high-resolution arrangement has a shade erratic of
10.25 inches, while a tile-style menu blueprint with charcterised graphics
in live mode facilitates discerning operation. The new
BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo also offers a preference of both enhanced
voice control and BMW gesture control. And business can mention the
new-generation BMW Head-Up Display, too, whose projection area is
70 per cent incomparable than before.

Assistance systems that well-spoken a approach to automated
The motorist assistance systems propitious in a new
BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo make use of a customary stereo camera as
good as discretionary radar and ultrasonic sensors to guard a vehicle’s
surroundings. The Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Collision
Mitigation comes as standard, while a list of options includes the
new, softened chronicle of Active Cruise Control with Stop  Go
duty operational during speeds between 0 and 210 km/h (130 mph). The
Steering and line control partner (active in a same speed range)
represents another step along a highway to programmed driving. It uses
highway markings and vehicles pulling forward for course and helps the
motorist to keep a automobile in a rescued lane. The Lane Departure
and Lane Change Warning systems, Side Collision Warning and the
semblance assist further raise preference and reserve by entrance to the
driver’s assistance with visual steering inputs. The Crossing
trade warning, Priority warning, Crossroads warning and Wrong-way
warning systems likewise do their bit to equivocate potentially hazardous
situations. And a BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo can also be systematic with
a Remote Control Parking feature.

BMW Connected: personal mobility assistant, new services.

BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo owners can also suffer a advantages of
BMW Connected, intelligent connectivity enabling this digital personal
mobility partner to assistance drivers strech their finish simply and
with minimal highlight – and not usually when they are in their car. To this
end, calendar entries from a smartphone can be used for route
planning, for instance, a ideal depart time can be distributed on
a basement of real-time trade information and a navigation finish can
be eliminated to a owner’s car. Once inside, drivers are means to
conduct calendar, e-mail and hit information around a Microsoft Exchange
function. Their smartphone is integrated wirelessly around Bluetooth and
preliminary charging is also possible.

Real Time Traffic Information indicates a participation of tailbacks and
slow-moving traffic, On-Street Parking Information helps to find
accessible parking spots during a side of a road, and a Remote 3D
View duty allows drivers to perspective live images of their automobile and its
evident closeness on their smartphone.
