BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe – new photos and details
BMW’s brand new 6 Series Gran Coupe is going to treat us to a few new photos of itself and some extra details, one of which is quite important.
Being a pretty entrant to the four door coupe market, the new pictures of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe are certainly welcome.
The most important new detail that’s available now is that we have an official pricing idea of what the Gran Coupe would be stuck with.
BMW have released the 6 Series Gran Coupe price list on the German website and things look pretty good. At a starting price of €83.000 the new four door coupe is just €4.800 more than the equivalent 6 Series.
In American dollars, that comes in at around 110.000 and the difference translates into just under 6.300 so the doors aren’t exactly cheap over in Bavaria.
Engine wise the same options are available so you can pick between the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe 640i, 640d and 650i. So far, only the last one gets the option of an xDrive all wheel drive system.
Obviously the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe is our favorite in terms of four door coupes but there’s a bit of a problem with the pricing here.
The main rivals you’d think of would definitely be the Audi A7 Sportback and the Mercedes CLS but they’re both considerably cheaper.
Sure, the image factor here really stands out but the only way we can justify the price difference so far is that the Bavarians are aiming to be somewhere between the CLS and the likes of the Porsche Panamera.
