CLS 450 vs. 6-Series Gran Turismo: Specs 

  • Engine Power: While both models feature 3.0L turbo inline-6 engines, the new CLS generates 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, while the 640i xDrive Gran Turismo only delivers 335 hp and 330 lb-ft.
  • Transmission: To go along with the extra engine power, the CLS 450 offers additional gears with its 9G-TRONIC® transmission. Shifting won’t be as smooth with the 8-speed transmission of the 640i xDrive Gran Turismo.
  • Fuel-Efficiency: Enjoy up to an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with the CLS 450. The less-efficient Gran Turismo manages a mere 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. 

CLS 450 vs. 6-Series Gran Turismo: Safety Equipment

The 2019 BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo includes many of the basics, such as telematics, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors. Nevertheless, if safety and security are at the top of your car shopping list, you’ll feel more relaxed inside in the new CLS 450 vs. BMW 6-Series Gran Turismo. The CLS 450 brags these features, which aren’t found on the base 6-Series Gran Turismo:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: This driver attention monitor measures over 70 parameters and alerts you if you appear to be losing focus behind the wheel.
  • PRESAFE®: This system closes the windows and sunroof, tightens seat belts, and adjusts headrests to offer vehicle occupants the maximum protection possible in the event a potential accident is detected. 
  • PRESAFE® Sound: A “pink noise” is emitted if a potential accident is sensed, which causes a protective reaction in the middle ear. This will help to protect your ears from the loud noises that come with a collision.
