The updated BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo debuts with a soft hybrid

This will probably be BMW’s latest Gran Turismo. The strangest BMW car is being rebuilt.

The unloved Gran Turismo 6-Series facelifted for the last time before the BMW episode with the misleading “Gran Turismo” hatchback probably came to an unceremonious end.

The front end looks noticeably sharper, with an aggressive shark nose and more angular headlights. The side view, on the other hand, remains almost identical, and the same is true for the rear end, although BMW claims to be “fewer lines”. Moreover, all engine options now have the same trapezoidal tailpipes, and this step will disappoint enthusiasts, because this is another sign that the choice of power plant is less important than ever from the point of view of visual difference.

Functional advantages of the updated model include improved headlights with the option of laser lighting, an additional rear-wheel steering system now works at lower speeds, which improves parking characteristics. BMW has modernized electronic assistants in the form of advanced infotainment systems and driver assistance systems.

Under the hood, each engine is now equipped with a 48-volt hybrid system, and the portfolio still includes four- and six-cylinder diesel and gasoline units, which are exclusively combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission based on ZF.
