On the exterior front the new 6 GT looks attractive and sharp taking cues from the new generation 5 Series. The car gets adaptive LED headlights as well as an active Aero spoiler that integrates into the boot. The car is also longer, wider and lower than its predecessor, while the boot capacity has seen a 110 litre increase as well. The new GT is about 150 kg lighter than its predecessor courtesy the use of aluminium and high-strength steel in its construction. However, a major plus on the new 6 Series GT is the sportier design that has come a long way since the bloated looks of the older car. In dimensions, the new BMW 6 Series GT has grown 87 mm longer and 21 mm lower.
