BMW has announced the launch of the new BMW 6 Series in India today. Locally-produced at BMW Group Plant Chennai, the car is available in one petrol (newly introduced BMW 630i M Sport) and two diesel variants (BMW 630d M Sport and BMW 620d Luxury Line). Bookings can be made at all BMW dealerships from today onwards.

The exterior design flows smoothly over into the front headlights and now creates a sharper angular expression. New contours for the BMW kidney grille and headlights immediately bordering it on either side make a striking impression. Standard equipment includes new full-LED Adaptive headlights. Newly added BMW Laserlight, unique in this vehicle segment, distributes light perfectly up to 650 meters. The slope-like roofline overflows with coupe elegance. More modern and cleaned up – that is the first impression of the rear with broad, muscular lines, attractive LED rear-light design and two freeform tailpipes.

Interior trim selections enhance the luxurious appeal – BMW 630i and BMW 620d offer Natural Leather Dakota trim with fine-wood trims and BMW 630d offers a refined premium option with exclusive ‘Nappa’ leather upholstery with diamond stitching. The car has four-zone automatic climate control with extended features. Adding to the luxurious feel are features such as electroplated controls, electrically adjustable roller sunblinds and soft-close function for doors. Luggage compartment has a capacity of up to 600 litres, extending to 1,800 litres thanks to the 40/20/40 split.

Under the hood, the 2-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine of the BMW 630i generates maximum output of 258 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm with 0-100 kmph acceleration in just 6.5 seconds. The 2-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine of the BMW 620d develops maximum output of 190 hp and a peak torque of 400 Nm with 0-100 kmph acceleration in 7.9 seconds. The 3-liter 6-cylinder in-line diesel engine of BMW 630d produces maximum output of 265hp and peak torque of 620 Nm with 0-100 kmph acceleration in 6.1 seconds, making it the quickest car in its segment.

The latest version of the Rear-seat entertainment Professional comprises two 10.25” touchscreen monitors with full-HD technology, a Blu-ray player, screen mirroring function and two USB ports. Harman Kardon Surround Sound System conjures an engrossing treat for the ears.

Modern cockpit concept BMW Live Cockpit Professional with BMW Operating System 7.0 includes 3D Navigation, a 12.3-inch fully-digital digital instrument display behind the steering wheel and now bigger 12.3 inch Control Display.

The new BMW 6 Series is available in new exciting colours – BMW Individual finish Tanzanite Blue metallic is offered for the first time. Phytonic Blue metallic, Piemont Red metallic and Bernina Grey Amber effect variants have been added to the color range.

Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India said, “The new BMW 6 Series recrafts luxury and adds a truly unique dimension to the executive class segment. It has the practicality of a crossover, the dynamics of a sports car, the silhouette of a fastback and the luxury of a sedan. The personality of the BMW 6 Series distinguishes it clearly from the crowd and is the reason for its long-lasting success. It is the vehicle of choice for modern leaders who expect the best luxury and comfort when they are at the rear. And nothing short of ‘Sheer Driving Pleasure’ when they take the wheel. It is an expression of style and beckons those who won’t settle for anything but the best.”
