Overview

The 6-Series is BMW's flagship grand tourer. The 4-door Gran Coupe is the newest addition to this line up and is actually a full four inches longer than the Coupe. Though the Gran Coupe has four doors, seating is limited to four occupants--BMW choosing to compromise the traditional fifth passenger in the name of more comfort for the other four. The cost of upgrading to the Gran Coupe is a less than $3000 making it a pretty simple choice for people who need more space but still love the styling of the 6-series.
