You can complete short trips in the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé, of course. However, this will never quite be enough. The reason for this is the perfectly attuned suspension and transmission technology. This ensures that road-holding remains supreme and pleasant at all times − even during fast, sporty driving. You’re guaranteed to feel it: The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé has a genuine driving style all of its own.
Whether the goal is maximum performance or minimum fuel consumption – for BMW, the focus is always on delivering quintessential BMW driving pleasure. BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy developed by BMW to minimise fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. It is a comprehensive technology package that includes the drive train, energy management and the BMW EfficientLightweight vehicle concept – and is standard in every BMW.
The BMW TwinPower Turbo engine range’s new generation of petrol engines is responsible for the improved performance and lower fuel consumption in BMW vehicles. Optimised aerodynamics also contribute to the increased efficiency.
The full-bodied sound of the sports exhaust system perfectly complements the vehicle’s overall athleticism. The sound can also be modified using an integrated exhaust valve mechanism, which is controlled by the Driving Experience Control. The dynamic SPORT and SPORT+ driving modes are accentuated by a thrilling, even more distinctive sound, while the comfort-oriented modes are accompanied by more discreet engine acoustics that better suit longer journeys and a more luxurious driving experience.
A feeling of complete control − thanks to the perfect interplay between suspension, precise steering and state-of-the-art technologies. The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé tackles even the most winding roads with impressive lightness. And Driving Experience Control offers the choice between sporty, direct road contact and a comfortable, relaxed drive.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission adapts to suit individual driving styles. It is perfect for everything from comfortable cruising through to a very dynamic drive. In addition to automatic gear selection, it is of course possible to shift gears manually at any time. The gear can be shifted using the dynamically designed selector lever or the shift paddles on the steering wheel.
In Sport mode, the gear shifts are configured for maximum performance. Thanks to the fine increments and eight gears, the engine is always kept at the level at which it can make best use of its power and efficiency. It also makes acceleration faster, when overtaking another vehicle for example.
When travelling at high speeds, the additional eighth gear reduces the required engine speed, thereby also reducing the fuel consumption and engine noise. This is also where the newly developed converter clutch comes into play. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers the greatest shifting comfort and the best possible efficiency.
The intelligent energy management in the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé includes the BMW EfficientDynamics technologies ECO PRO mode, Automatic Start/Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration as standard. The interplay of these features ensures sustainable mobility and maximum efficiency.
