BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

The potential competitor for Audi’s A7 was spotted testing on Delhi roads recently. First came the convertible and then the coupe and now BMW has all plans to launch the 6-Series Gran Coupe in India. The test mule spotted is the very first four-door coupe from the Bavarian luxury car maker. The Gran Coupe shares its looks with that of the earlier launched coupe, however, the rear doors have now been accommodated by a longer roofline which runs downwards and blends with the boot. The wheel-base is 113 mm longer than that of the BMW 6-Series Coupe, thus offering increased legroom for rear-seat passengers.

The BMW TwinPower Turbo engines mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission will power the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe. The six-cylinder petrol engine will be the heart of the BMW 640i Gran Coupe which produces a peak power of 320 HP. On the other hand, the standard six-cylinder diesel engine will power the BMW 640d Gran Coupe which has a power output of 313 HP. The latest addition is the V8 petrol engine which will be the powerhouse for the BMW 650i Gran Coupe. It produces a peak power output of 450 HP. The V8 engine uses two turbochargers, a direct high-precision injection and the fully variable VALVETRONIC valve control system.

The BMW 650i Gran Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 4.6 seconds and has a fuel economy of approximately 11.5 km/l. Both the BMW 640i Gran Coupe and 640d Gran Coupe cover the 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, however the former has a fuel efficiency of 13 km/l and the latter gives 18 km/l (under ideal test conditions). A lot many technologically advanced features are seen on-board which include the BMW Head-Up display with full-color graphics, parking assistant, Surround View, Active Cruise Control with the Stop & Go function, Lane Departure Warning System, Speed Limit Info, High-Beam Assistant and BMW Night Vision with pedestrian warning.
