BMW 5-Series & 6-Series GT Revealed, India Bound

2021 BMW 5-Series

The sedan now comes with a fresher look and more features inside and out. It's set to sire a new M5 CS model with revised aerodynamics, including a rear wing similar to that seen on the M2 CS, M3 CS and M4 CS, plus lightweight carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic components. You could readily see the frameless windows, large tailgate and automatically extending rear spoiler at speeds of more than 120 kmph.

The 2021 BMW 5 Series will start production in July, and will head for global markets later in the summer, with Canadian pricing to be announced then.

BMW India introduced the 6 Series Gran Turismo locally midway through 2018 and is now on sale in three variants, priced between Rs. 64.90 lakh and Rs. 75.89 lakh for the M Sport trim (both prices, ex-showroom). That's the most polite way we can say: Not much has changed for this year. The taillights are also tweaked with new L-shaped signature inlays to match the headlights and slim black trim surrounding them.

Additionally, the exhaust tailpipe finishers integrated into the bumper are made to appear even more trapezoidal in shape than before. The good? It keeps pace with the tech arms race from other luxury automakers such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi. The 530i xDrive runs $58,495, the 530e costs $58,190 and $60,495 with all-wheel drive, the 540i starts at $60,445 with rear drive and $62,745 with all-wheel drive, and the M550i xDrive costs $77,795.

The next step up is the most efficient 5-Series.

288 hp 530e and 530e xDrive PHEV Sedans? The EPA hasn't yet tallied the new 530e's mileage, but the last model traveled about 20 miles on electricity alone. The 530e also delivers a 40 hp boost in 10-second sprints, which is new this year.

We do expect the 48 V mild-hybrid system to reach India as well. Some cars add adaptive dampers (some make it standard, too) that can toggle between comfort and sporty settings. That's a good thing; all 5-Series were comfortable for adults, up to five.

BMW adds power to the plug-in hybrid models for 2021. The M550i gets standard Dakota leather-trimmed sport seats, and nappa leather is optional for all models. BMW's native navigation software, along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also come along for the ride without having to tick an option box.

The trunk holds 14 cubic feet of cargo, which is on the small side for its class.

On the safety front, the lane departure warning system now features steering assistance to return the vehicle to the middle of the lane, while the range of functions in the Parking Assistant suite has been expanded to include reversing assistant. The central touchscreen has increased in size from 10.25 inches to 12.3, and now features the latest version of BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant, which can be activated by saying "Hey, BMW". Options include leather, bigger wheels, adaptive dampers, and convenience features.

The BMW 5-Series G30 (seventh gen) model was revealed for the first time in 2016.
