Chennai plant begins BMW 5 Series rollout for June launch

Chennai plant begins BMW 5 Series rollout for June launch”

In the USA, the 6 series GT will be offered exclusively as a 640i xDrive model starting at $70,695, including destination. The total boot capacity of the BMW 6 series has been boosted to 610 liters, which is 20 liters more than the older model. Dealerships have already started accepting bookings for the new 5 Series with the token amount varying from ₹ 2 lakh to ₹ 3 lakh and we expect deliveries of the auto are to start from July 2017.

Australian details and specifications are yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to go on sale late this year or early in 2018.

Pricing for the 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo starts at $70,695 and it arrives this fall.

It is 150kg lighter than the 5 Series saloon due to its new platform and greater use of aluminium and hot-formed high-strength steel in its body structure. The standard suspension features rear air springs and automatic self-levelling. The new 5 Series borrows features and styling elements from its elder sibling, the 7-Series.

It's a model that was previously known as the 5-Series Gran Turismo, a tall hatchback that with above average room for humans and their cargo.

A poster child for advanced driver aids, the new 6 Series GT is the first BMW to come with standard Active Driving Assistant.

According to BMW, despite the new look, there is no sacrifice in space, comfort or practicality. It also rides on a wheelbase that is the same as its predecessor 3070mm. Essentially, BMW seems to spend half the press release bashing the defunct 5 GT, which you can no longer buy new except from dealer stock. Naturally, there's an optional M Sport package too.

Although it doesn't look it, the Gran Turismo is ridiculously aerodynamic.

The enlarged cabin offers three full-size rear seats which are optionally available with electrically adjustable backrests.

Further up the line-up is the 640i Gran Turismo.

The only diesel available at launch will be the 3.0 six-cylinder 630d, which does 0-62mph in 6.1sec and has official fuel economy of 57.7mpg and emissions of 129g/km. That would mean a torque split of 40:60 front to rear, and the ability to redirect all torque to either axle if wheel-slip is detected.

The 640i flagship has all-wheel drive and a 3-litre petrol turbo engine with outputs of 250kW and 450Nm, for a claimed 0-100km/h sprint in just 5.3 seconds. The 2018 version also spreads those maximum ratings across a wider rev range. It combines a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor mounted within the forward section of its gearbox to deliver a combined system output of 243kW.

Only one diesel option will be offered at launch - BMW's familiar 3-litre turbocharged straight-six.
