India’s favourite luxury car maker BMW will enter the four-door coupe segment as it launches the 6-Series Gran Coupe today in a single variant, the 640d. 

 

The BMW 640d Gran Coupe is equipped with the company’s 3.0-litre, twin turbocharged, six-cylinder diesel engine that generates 317PS of power @ 4400rpm and 630Nm of torque between 1500 and 2000rpm. The engine is mated to the latest 8-speed automatic gearbox giving the car a 0-100km/h time of 5.4 seconds. 

 

The sporty character of the BMW 6-Series until now was limited to the two-door coupe and convertible models. Now with the four-door version, BMW will take the Audi A7 Sportback and Mercedes-Benz CLS Class head on in the sporty four-door sedan arena that offers the best of practicality, style and performance. 

 

The BMW 640d Gran Coupe has been stretched a little compared to its two-door siblings for extra rear leg room and BMW claims that the car can seat five. However, the middle passenger in the rear seat will have to straddle the centre console that extends to the rear seat. That being said, the car has excellent rear leg room for two passengers and the seats are comfortable as well. 

 

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe comes loaded with gizmos such as a head-up display that also shows navigation information, daytime running LED rings in the headlamps, auto start/stop, night vision with pedestrian recognition, and surround view. Creature comforts include dual zone climate controlled air-conditioning, cruise control, paddle shifts, electronically adjustable seats with memory function and a high end Bang & Olufsen surround sound system.
