BMW 6 Se­ries Gran Turismo Steps In

Car India - - BULLETIN -

IN A STRATE­GIC MOVE TO MARK THEM­SELVES OUT, BMW HAVE in­tro­duced the all-new 6 Se­ries Gran Turismo. The new 6 GT replaces the 5 Se­ries GT as the new 5er steps in to take the ex­ec­u­tive chal­lenge for­ward. The 6 Se­ries Coupé is be­ing si­lenced, with the 8 Se­ries set to take its place in the re­vised line-up. Word on the straße is that the 6 Se­ries Gran Coupé may also not make it to the next model year.

The new 6 Se­ries Gran Turismo bor­rows heav­ily from the new 5er’s styling, with a front face rem­i­nis­cent of its four-door odd-num­bered sib­ling. The in­te­rior re­mains just as up­mar­ket as ever, with some mod­ern ad­di­tions com­ing in from big­ger 7 Se­ries as well. The en­gine line-up for now com­prises the 252-PS turbo-petrol four in the 630i, the 265-PS turbo-diesel six in the 630d, and the up­rated 340-PS turbo-petrol six in the 640i. The eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion is of­fered as stan­dard, with xDrive in­tel­li­gent all-wheel drive be­ing an op­tion with most en­gine choices.

Re­ports also sug­gest that BMW In­dia will soon bring in the 6 GT to In­dia as a lo­cally-as­sem­bled of­fer­ing tar­geted at the re­cently in­tro­duced Mercedes long-wheel­base E-Class.
