BMW Admits 6 Series GT ‘Doesn’t Appeal At All’ In Some Markets

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is no longer available in the United States and there seems to be a very good reason for this. While an updated version of the model is still on sale in Europe, BMW recently admitted that the controversially styled model is not to everyone’s taste. And we couldn’t agree more.

In a recent interview with Coach, the company’s design director, Adrian van Hooydonk, said the 6 Series GT “is very attractive in some areas, but is not appealing at all in others. And that’s totally understandable – the mix between a large sedan, wagon, and sedan isn’t something everyone would like. Especially in Europe and the United States.

According to Hooydnok, the 6GT is a strong seller in China, but customers in larger European markets, including the UK, Germany and Italy, are much more interested in the 5 Series as a sedan or wagon. Still, demand in the People’s Republic appears to be sufficient for the 6 Series GT to remain, at least for now.

With the May facelift of this year, the 6GT received some visual revisions and standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional, which is essentially the company’s latest dashboard and infotainment system.

In addition, all variants of the new 6 Series GT for all markets have a 48-volt mild hybrid system to accompany the combustion engine. According to the automaker, MHEV powertrains have 11 horsepower (8 kilowatts) more than pre-facelift mils, as well as improved fuel efficiency.

The 2020 6 Series GT is already available to order in most European countries with German prices starting at € 62,800 (around $ 69,000 at current prices).
