The interior of the 6 Series GT will welcome you with an accomplished balance of dynamic driver-orientation and luxurious comfort. The rear compartment provides three comfortable, full-sized seats with generous legroom and headroom. It comes equipped with some features like BMW Gesture Control, extensive range of BMW ConnectedDrive systems like the Multifunctional Instrument Display, BMW iDrive, including touch controller, 10.25 inch touch screen infotainment system with BMW Navigation Professional, Apple Car Play, Park Distance Control, BMW Apps and Connectivity through Bluetooth and USB. What also will add more to its rear row is the 10.2 inch Rear-Seat Entertainment system, which is behind the front-seat backrests, a BluRay player, HDMI connection for mobiles, as well as various connections for MP3 players and game consoles.
People who are looking more space with comfort and not to for sheer driving quality that’s within BMW’s DNA can opt for this one. It comes with air-suspension enhancing comfort, but variable damping will also keep it a keen driver’s car, which is a BMW signature. It is a slick looking thing but is also bulky so engineers had to work on aero improvements. An automatic spoiler rises at the back when you drive beyond 120kmph aiding down force pressing the car down on the road. Efficient clean burning engines and quick shifting transmission makes it an ideal family car for regular city use or a longer journey with lots of luggage with its 610l boot space. Just in case you’re moving a big piece of furniture, rear seats fold electrically to give you humongous space.
