What Car? says...
Not so very long ago, the large, luxury hatchback was about as fashionable as white socks in black trainers, with drainpipe trousers held aloft with bicycle clips. The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, though, has given the posh hatch something of a renaissance.
Its predecessor, the 5 Series Gran Turismo sold relatively well in places such as the US and China, but proved something of an acquired taste on these shores, finding precious few homes. The 6 Series GT, though, is less divisive to look at, and – better still – promises great things for enthusiastic drivers, thanks to sharing the brilliant 5 Series’ underpinnings.
