BMW 6-Series GC takes on the rivals
The days of the traditional boxy saloon are numbered. Meet the new breed of more-door supercoupe

All the interiors are great places to spend long hours. The Mercedes' seats support most snug in corners, and the same applies in the back, but that's because they're two-person buckets and the others have benches. The CLS driver's cushion is hard and flat. Some like it that way. I preferred the Audi and BMW seats on the motorway haul.
The style of the cabins matches the exteriors: the CLS rather ornate and touchingly individual, the Audi austere, the BMW just right. All are beautifully crafted. There's no longer much to choose between the navigation, snappiness and graphics of BMW iDrive, Audi MMI and Mercedes COMAND. They all bundle in, as standard, nav and phone Bluetooth. Those functions and the hi-fi are upgradable on all the cars, but they're perfectly decent as is.
