BMW 6 SERIES GRAN TURISMO
Spacious and versatile are words that can best describe the German carmaker’s first-ever BMW 6 Series Grand Turismo, a striking standalone concept. The car is instantly recognisable by its slick, contemporary design, with its distinctive elongated bonnet, coupé-style roofline and a large, sporty tailgate, in addition to its striking rear spoiler, which adds a nice design touch. The car is powered by a two-litre four-cylinder petrol engine (BMW 630i) delivering an output of 190 hp. It can go from 0-100 kmph in no more than 6.3 seconds. Gear shifting is seamless thanks to the 8-speed Steptronic Sport Automatic Transmission, while driving is smooth as silk thanks to the self-explanatory BMW Driving Experience Control, where a driver can shift between different drive modes to maximise the driving experience — Sport, Comfort, Comfort +, Eco Pro and Adaptive. Innovation is at the forefront with this car thanks to the carmaker’s cutting-edge technology. A case in point is the BMW Gesture Control, which recognises six pre-defined hand movements, to control different functions. Then there is the amazing BMW Display key, which indicates fuel level and information on doors, windows and the panoramic sunroof. While the car’s front seat perks are already so luxurious, back seat riders can enjoy the Rear-Seat Entertainment system with two 10.2-inch colour screens, with multiple connectivity options.
Safety and security features include BMW’s Anti-lock braking, side-impact protection, dynamic stability control and dynamic traction control. The first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is available in a petrol variant, the BMW 630i Gran Turismo Sport Line, which is locally-produced. The diesel variant for the first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo will be launched later in 2018. bmw.in
