BMW 630i GT. In the year 2021, BMW has launched many vehicles, in which many facelift models are also present. We have one of these latest car BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo which we drove for about 5 days and you will know in this review what we think about this vehicle. The Grand Tourer made its global debut in 2020, and a year later, the 6GT was unveiled with a host of features apart from updated styling. The new 6GT is longer than the current 5 Series and is more practical with more space. First of all, if we talk about the exterior design, then the front will look completely updated. The kidney grille is now wider and the LED lights look more attractive than before. If M is a sport variant, then you can see BMW Laser Light Technology in it, whose throw is much better, yes, if you drive in the night time, then these adaptive laser lights are seen throwing lights on the road up to 650 meters. The front bumper has also been changed and a new apron has been used in it which seems to give a heavy look to the vehicle. The rear bumper remains the same as before and gets a bigger diffuser. We have this M Sport version and it gets attractive trapezoidal tail-pipes. LED taillights are seen as before. If the M Sport is a package, then you will get to see the M logo in many places in it like on the exterior, key fob, door sills and brake calipers, which is in blue color. Along with this, the second best feature is the rear spoiler which gets activated automatically at a speed of 120 kmph.
Coming to the interior, the updates won’t be too much to see here, yet it gives a complete luxury feel from everywhere. First of all, you will get to see BMW’s large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster as well as a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system that comes with BMW’s 7th generation operating system. BMW has integrated Apple CarPlay in a great way as the UI/UX is seen all over the screen. Let us tell you, BMW is the only car company in the luxury space that is offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Wireless. Along with this, a new design is seen on the M Sport steering wheel, you can see the new trim element on the dashboard. Also, the use of better-lit Y mood lighting and high-gloss black can be seen extensively. Overall, everything looks pretty and the cabin looks a lot more expensive and luxurious like the E-Class. However, you will find a lack of some features in the 6GT. In this you do not get massage seats nor do they get ventilated or cooling function. At the same time, the rear seats become electric recline, the passengers get a good back angle rest but the front seats do not come. Not only this, you also do not get a big panoramic sunroof in it. However, for rear seat entertainment, two 10.25-inch screens are available that come with screen mirroring function. That is, you can run it from your smartphone. Harman Kardon gets a surround sound system that comes with 16 speakers and is standard across all the variants. Their output is also very good. The 6GT also gets Parking Assist, which automatically parks the car backwards for the last 50 metres. However, you also get a remote key park that is available on the 630d. Talking about boot space, it still gets 600 liters of boot space.
Engine and performance
BMW is offering 3 engine options in its 6GT. In this you will get a 2.0-litre diesel engine, a 3.0-litre Strat 6 diesel and a 2.0-litre petrol engine. What we are running is a petrol engine which makes 255 bhp power at 5,000 and 400 Nm torque and this torque is available only at 1,550 – 4,400 rpm. The company claims that it takes 6.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph and the top speed is 250 kmph. This is a very smooth and sweet revving engine. Power delivery is also linear. The wheelbase is more than the 5-series, so you can feel it while driving. Air suspension is now being given as standard across all variants of the 6GT. Due to this air suspension, the 6GT gives more ground clearance up to 20mm. However, the standard ride height is also sufficient. You can easily get a complete view of the road for a complete view ahead. The 8-speed automatic transmission does a much better job and the updated 630i gets you four driving modes – Sport, Comfort, Eco Pro and Adaptive, with each mode giving you a different engine character and ride quality. I mostly run it in adaptive mode and it maintains a better balance between performance and comfort in this mode. The steering response is also quite sharp. Overall, you get great ride quality with a great performance.
You might not get to see a lot of updates in the 2021 BMW, but you cannot be disappointed with all the ones that you have got. Now it makes more sense to buy this vehicle and you will not be disappointed at all if you drive it yourself or ride it sitting back.
