The 2021 BMW 6 Series GT facelift has been officially revealed. The new part-sedan, part-coupe will likely be launched in India in the first half of 2021.
The BMW 6 Series GT has adopted the brand’s latest design language with the facelift. Key exterior changes include new front and rear aprons, new prominent kidney grille with single-piece surround and protruding grille bars and redesigned headlamps with laser light technology and L-shaped graphics.
New on the inside is the BMW Live Cockpit Professional comprising a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In addition to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto support is also available in the new model. The steering wheel has newly arranged multifunction buttons. BMW has also given newly designed controls on the centre console of the new 6 Series. Moreover, the company has added a dashcam that allows the driver to record 40-second footage, and in the case of an accident, automatically records a period of 20 seconds before and after the event.
BMW has brought 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to the 6 Series GT with the mid-life update. The company equips all the engines of the fastback with the mild-hybrid system. The electrification has not only reduced the fuel consumption but also provided an extra 11 PS of (electrical) power. The company has re-tuned the chassis to make allowance for the change in the weight balance resulting from the inclusion of mild hybrid technology.
