The 6 Series Shooting Break is said to not sacrifice on aesthetics in favor of practical aspects. The Gran Coupe will serve as a design inspiration for the Gran Tourer but it will come with a very inclined tailgate, fine glass surfaces, lower ride height and no roof track.
The niche model will also deliver enhanced luxury and exclusivity and it will be more convenient than the Gran Coupe, thanks to its electric tailgate opening.
The 2017 BMW 6 Series, presumably named G32 and G33, is based on the 2016 G30 BMW 5 Series so will feature a lighter chassis and will make use of lightweight materials. The luxurious two-and four-door will remain priced clearly above the BMW 5 Series and retain their own interior.
BMW 6 Series Gran Tourer is rumored to be released in 2017.
