The 6 GT replaces the rather forgettable 5 GT and, as you might've guessed, it slots right in between the 5- and 7-Series.

The country's biggest automotive fiesta is proving to be a mega event! BMW has kick-started 2018 by introducing the all-new 6 GT for India. Prices for BMW’s top-shelf grand tourer starts at Rs 58.9 lakh, ex-showroom India.

BMW has only launched the BMW 6 GT in petrol guise today; the diesel-powered 6 GT will be launched later this year.

The 6 GT is only available with a petrol engine which comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Global markets get the 6 GT with BMW's four-wheel drive tech — xDrive. For our market, the big GT retains the rear-wheel-drive setup that we’ve all come to love. Although this setup might not provide the outright grip that a four-wheel drive system provides, it also lets you shred the rear tyres when you are in the mood for some fun.

For the spec sheet junkies out there, here are the all-important numbers. The petrol engine is the 2.0-litre four-pot we've sampled in the 5 Series sedan. The 630i makes 255PS and 400Nm.

Size wise, the 6 GT is bigger by 87mm (5091mm) compared to the 5 GT it replaces. Width is unchanged at 1902mm, while the height is down by 21mm at 1538mm. With its coupe-like design, it does look quite unique among a sea of luxury sedans. And yes, BMW has focussed on making the 6'er practical. So, you get a massive 610-litre boot that'll happily triple in size if you fold the 40:20:40 split folding rear bench.

In case you're wondering, yes, the 6 GT gets all the bells and whistles a modern-day BMW should. That includes a 10.25-inch touchscreen for the iDrive, gesture control and remote control parking.
