2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe To Be Launched In India On November 8
BMW is all set to roll out its first four-door coupe in the country before Diwali, 2012. As per the announcements made by the company, the all-new 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe will hit the Indian roads on November 8, 2012.
The unique feature of the new 6 Series Gran Coupe is that it consists of four doors while the conventional 6-series consisted only of two-door. This four doors feature is available for the first time in BMW’s history and comes with a seating capacity of 4+1 people. This all new 2013 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe was first unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
Having a sultry look with low sloping roofline, the Gran Coupe can easily be distinguished from the traditional sedan design. Apart from the inclusion of two extra doors, and revamped sheetmetal, the 2013, 6-Series Gran Coupe quite resembles the traditional 6 Series coupe and other convertible models that are already available on sale.
The all new Gran Coupe comes with a length of 5,007 mm and a wheelbase of 2,968 mm and is longer by 111 mm to its 2-door Coupe sibling. A large part of this extra length has been contributed towards the seating arrangements to provide more comfort to the rear passengers. The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe has a width of 1,894 mm and has a height of 1,392 mm. When compared to BMW 550i, the Gran coupe is 102 mm longer, 34 mm wider and 72 mm lower.
Though the technical specification of the all new 6-Series Gran Coupe is not known so far, it is expected to house a 442 bhp, 4.4-litre V8 engine or the 3.0 litre turbocharged inline cylinder. THIS 3.0 litre engine, which comes mated with an 8-Speed automatic gearbox, is BMW’s most popular and is capable of delivering a power as high as 314 bhp.
When launched, the all new BMW 6-Series will compete with Mercedes Benz CLS, Audi A7 and the Porsche Panamera.
