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

The Mercedes came with almost no options and it's fine. The £53,500 for Sport trim looks like the bargain of the group. The Audi's list for S Line trim (which we're not entirely sure we like) is £55,040, and that includes more power than the Mercedes and two more driven wheels. The test £63,350 A7 added optional posher MMI, a head-up display, Bose sound, adaptive cruise, lane keeping and side blind-spot warning. The BMW is expensive. In M Sport trim it's £68,565 (even the SE, different only in cosmetics really, is still £10k more than the CLS). The test car had an optional HUD, fancy adaptive chassis, 20s and more, none of which it needed, but they put it £30k above the test Mercedes.
