Auto Expo 2018 : BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo launched at INR 58.9 Lakhs

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo has made its Indian debut at Auto Expo 2018. Showcasing the car for the first time here, BMW has simultaneously announced the launch of the new 6 Series GT.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is the successor to the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo, which was launched in India as the BMW Gran Turismo. Unlike the 5 Series GT, which was limited to 100 units, it is a regular model. While the 5 Series GT was a CBU import, the 6 Series GT is a locally-produced model.

Adaptive LED headlights, LED DRL, LED turn indicators, LED fog lights, frameless windows, flat L-shaped LED rear lights and active rear spoiler are among the BMW 6 Series GT’s main exterior features. There are three exterior colour choices: Alpine White, Glacier Silver and Mediterranean Blue.

Inside, the BMW 6 Series GT has 10.25-inch Navigation System Professional touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and BMW Gesture Control, panoramic glass roof, 4-zone automatic climate control, 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster, electric Roller Sunblind and Rear Seat Entertainment Professional system consisting of two tiltable 10.2-inch colour screens and a Blu-Ray drive.

BMW offers the BMW 6 Series GT in India exclusively in the Sport Line equipment line. Sport Line-specific exterior equipment includes BMW Kidney Grille frame in chrome high-gloss, vertical slats of the BMW Kidney Grille, front fog light housing, Air Breather finisher, B-pillar, mirror base and mirror foot in black high-gloss, ‘Sport Line’ lettering on the side, aluminium high-gloss window surrounds, 18-inch double-spoke 619-style alloy wheels and circular dual tailpipes with black chrome trim.

Illuminated aluminium door sill finishers with ‘Sport Line’ lettering, sport seats (front), Dakota leather upholstery with line-specific stitching and leather piping, car key with buttons and chrome detailing in high-gloss, black high-gloss trim finishers with Pearl Chrome accent and Sensatec instrument panel are the interior features brought by the Sport Line equipment line.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is available in India in only the base model – the BMW 630i. This model is powered by the 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine that develops 258 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission is standard and it sends power to the rear wheels. The xDrive permanent AWD system is unavailable in the Indian-spec version. For ensuring a high level of comfort, though, BMW does offer adaptive 2-axle air suspension, as standard.

The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is priced at INR 58,90,000 (ex-showroom). Dealerships have started taking orders and the diesel variant is expected to follow the petrol lineup later this year.
