It’s fair to say that while BMW’s 5 Series Gran Turismo sold relatively well in places such as the US and China, it was firmly in the ‘hen’s teeth’ category in the UK. Its sleek looks made it stand out but it was rather disappointing to drive. However, its replacement, the 6 Series Gran Turismo, appears to be more promising.

For starters, much of the 6 Series GT’s interior comes from the brilliant current 5 Series, while its dimensions are more akin to the spacious and luxurious 7 Series. However, despite its size, the 6 Series GT weighs about 150kg less than its predecessors – one of the 5 Series GT’s biggest issues.

So, if the GT looks appeal, or the thought of joining the swathes of 5 Series owners leaves you cold, is the 6 Series GT worth the extra cash it costs over its stablemates? And, beyond just BMW, does it make more sense than an Audi A7 Sportback or Mercedes-Benz CLS? Read on for our full review to find out.
