First showcased as a production ready model at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, the Gran Coupe is BMW’s larger iteration of the already established 6 Series Coupe that really sizzled up things in the GT space and introduced an all new dimension to luxury travel in the country.

 

However, looking to give worthy competition to its arch German rivals Mercedes-Benz and Audi, who have already drawn first blood with offerings like the CLS350 Coupe and A7 Sportback, BMW has now launched its four-door version of the 6 Series sedan, namely the Gran Coupe.

 

Built on pretty much the same rear-wheel drive platform as most current generation Bimmers the  6-Series Gran Coupe achieves its larger proportions with a longer wheelbase measuring 2968mm as opposed to the 2780mm wheelbase of the 6 Series Coupe and Convertible and a length that is now barely 0.6 inches lesser than flagship 7-series sedan.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 6 series Gran Coupe (Read : BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe First Drive) uses a TwinPower Turbo diesel engine that has been tuned to offer great drive dynamics as well and enhanced fuel efficiency. The 2,993cc diesel unit on the new 640d has a 6 cylinder layout and offers 317PS @ 4400rpm and a solid 630 Nm of torque between 1,500-2,500rpm. Mated to an 8 speed automatic gearbox it can hit a top speed of 250 km/hr.

 

The 6 Series Gran Coupe’s larger proportions apart from accommodating five people also gains a practical edge thanks to the 40:60 split folding rear seats that increases luggage space from the standard 460 litres to a solid 1,265 litres.

The advanced HUD (heads up display) unit inside the Bigger Bimmer clearly displays detailed navigation information, night vision with pedestrian recognition, surround view and a reverse parking camera. Driver and passenger comfort features also include a high-end Bang & Olufsen surround sound system, 2-zone climate controlled air conditioning, cruise control, paddle shifts, electronically adjustable seats and a numerous other aids to ensure that you travel in the lap of luxury.

 

BMW is asking for Rs 86.40 lakh (ex-showroom India) for all the practicality, style and indulgence that is the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. It will sell as a single diesel 640d variant with three optional packages depending on the customers needs. Expect a massive CBU onslaught by BMW in India in 2013 beginning with new 7 Series, the stunning X6, the X1 and finally the 1- series!
