The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo emerges as a perfect replacement for the 5 GT. The new product has helped the Bavarian car manufacturer realign its nomenclature and make way for newer models and elevate its expanding product portfolio. The new 6 Series GT further strengthens BMW’s foothold in the performance car segment in India.
BMW 6 GT is available in 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol turbocharged, four-cylinder motor generates 254bhp of power. The 2.0-litre diesel variant on the other hand generates 186bhp of power. The company will be introducing a 261bhp, 3.0-litre, six-cylinder diesel version at a later date. The powerful engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox that powers the rear wheels. The air-suspension comes as a standard fitment with automatic self-levelling just like the 5 Series and 7 Series. With lesser weight to lug around, thanks to the new platform, the new 6 GT promises to be a better driver’s car than its predecessor. The large cabin space makes it a practical alternative to the 5 Series sedan and estate.
Similar to the outgoing 5 GT, the new 6 GT is different from the 5 Series sedan beyond the B-pillar. The front fascia is similar to the G30 5 Series sedan, while at the rear there’s a new hatch opening door. The 6 GT is based on the same new platform as the 5 Series and hence is bigger yet lighter than its predecessor. The sloping roofline meets the high decked boot. The bulbous posterior is a trademark body style of BMW’s Gran Turismo. However, the new one seems better proportioned than the outgoing car. Apart from the bigger dimensions, the new 6GT gets a larger grille up front flanked by standard LED headlights of the new 5 Series. It also gets frameless windows, revised bumpers, and wraparound taillights with three-dimensional styling elements.
All this increase in dimension has resulted in a roomier cabin. In a proper grand tourer fashion, the new 6 GT packs all the creature comforts and luxuries. The dashboard is scrounged from the new 5 series, so is the 10.25-inch iDrive system with gesture control. The boot capacity is now 610 litres which can be expanded to a whopping 1,800 litres with the 40:20:40 split rear seats down. The seats can be folded flat electrically via a button in the boot. The vehicle gets four-zone automatic climate control, LED mood lighting and a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System with a 10-channel amplifier and 16 partially illuminated speakers.
