During the staging of the 7th Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS), patrons witnessed the glorifying presence of the first-ever BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. Thanks to SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp. (SMCACDC), the official importer and distributor of BMW vehicles in the country, the 6 Series made its local debut at PIMS, alongside with the all-new X4.
Set to replace the 5 Series GT, the 6 Series Gran Turismo brags unique styling and combined comfort of luxury sedan and coupe-like style, and practicality of wagon. The result? It’s longer, wider, and lower than its predecessor.
Taking a peek inside, you will be welcomed by a spacious passenger space and a higher driver position for better view on the road. The three full-size seats at rear section of the cabin provides a maximum legroom and headroom space.
With the selling price of P8,790,000, the 6 Series GT gets its power from a 3.0L diesel engine that can squeeze out 265 hp and 620 Nm of torque, with a top speed of 250 km/hr.
Aside from the Gran Turismo, BMW has also uncovered the all-new BMW X4, which is powerfully driven by a 2.0L diesel engine that can churn out up to 190 hp and 400 Nm of torque. This is athletic vehicle is priced at P5,190,000.
