Starting with the design, the all-new BMW 6 Series GT now looks sportier than before. For instance, at the front, it now comes equipped with a larger BMW kidney grille. The headlights are slimmer now. Meanwhile, both the bumpers have been redesigned to match its sporty appeal. Not to forget, the all-new 6 Series GT continues to feature the active rear spoiler. Also, customers will now get more colour schemes on offer.
From the start, BMW 6 Series GT is known for the ample number of features it offers. Just to be very frank, even this time it remains no less. Surpassing everyone’s expectation, the car now comes with a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In case, size is not a matter. Then, it is the new operating system along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity that will drive its user crazy.
Other features including automatic parking, multiple zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, air suspensions, 360-degree parking camera, entertainment screen for rear passengers and LED headlights are still a part of the features list.
The powertrain of the 2021 6 Series Gran Tourismo remains unchanged. The 630i variant continues to come with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine. To be precise, this unit produces 258HP alongside a peak torque of 400Nm. Then there is the 620d variant that comes equipped with a 190HP, 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel motor. The most powerful and fully loaded 630d variant gets a 265HP, 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine. For the knowledge, all these engines are mated to an eight-speed torque converter gearbox.
In India, BMW 6 Series GT will go head-on against the likes of Mercedes Benz E-Class and the upcoming Audi A7. The launch of the updated A7 is yet not confirmed. However, in the meantime, just take a look at the E-Class LWB.

The updated Mercedes Benz E-Class was recently launched in India. In terms of updates, it is now available with a longer wheelbase. Also, just like the all-new 6 Series GT, it is also available with three powertrains to choose from. All these factors together make the all-new E-Class a perfect rival to the BMW 6 Series GT.
