A 12.3-inch customisable virtual instrument cluster and a bigger, 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system have made it to the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo.

BMW has brought 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to the 6 Series GT with the mid-life update. The company equips all the engines of the fastback with the mild-hybrid system. The electrification has not only reduced the fuel consumption but also provided an extra 11 PS of (electrical) power. The company has re-tuned the chassis to make allowance for the change in the weight balance resulting from the inclusion of mild hybrid technology.

BMW will offer the 2021 6 Series Gran Turismo in five model variants at launch internationally:
