2021 BMW 640i Gran Coupe xDrive vs the competition
2019 Audi A7/S7 -- A German premium midsize hatchback, but this one has a conventional ride height, so the handling can benefit. All-new for 2019.
2019 BMW X6 -- Not as roomy as the 6 Series GT, but falls into the "non-conformist crossover" category, by virtue of the sloping roof.
