Even though the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo is one of the least popular models in BMW Malaysia's locally assembled lineup, it has not stopped BMW Malaysia from giving it a refresh.
For the same price as before, BMW today unveiled the new locally-assembled 2021 BMW 630i GT M Sport, a car that BMW calls a dynamic synthesis of performance, long-distance capability, and luxury.
More of a facelift rather than new, the 2021 BMW 630i GT M Sport CKD comes with redesigned LED headlights, a larger kidney grille, and new front and rear bumpers.
The new headlights ensure maximum visibility throughout any drive, as it comes with BMW's famed Laserlight with high-beam assistant. This feature adds dynamic laser illumination technology to the LED Matrix headlights system. The laser light follows the course of the road ahead in high-beam mode, and for the first time, adapts illumination even in low-beam mode. In laser high-beam mode, the range increases to a maximum of 650 metres – nearly twice as much as that of conventional high-beam headlights.
The 2021 BMW 630i GT M Sport also comes with 20-inch M light-alloy wheels in Star-spoke style 817 M Bicolour. Just inside the beautiful wheels are blue painted M Sport brake calipers with the “M” designation, which further accentuate the sporty personality of the new Gran Turismo. Its M high-gloss Shadow Line frames also add to its sporty silhouette.
At the rear of the New BMW 630i GT M Sport is a newly designed bumper shape and a new diffuser insert that come with the M Sport package, complemented by two-sided trapezoidal exhaust pipes. An active rear spoiler nestling in the tailgate comes as standard, increasing downforce at higher speeds.
The active rear spoiler automatically deploys at 120 km/h and is retracted once the car slows down to 80 km/h. For those who would like it up all the time, manual operation is available via a button on the centre console. For added convenience, the New BMW 630i GT M Sport comes with the Comfort Access System and BMW Display Key.
The luxurious interior is where most will appreciate the 6-Series GT and it starts with slightly elevated seats (by 5 cm), which ensures outstanding all-round visibility. Leather Dakota upholstery is what you will be sitting on and individual headliner anthracite and fine-wood ash trunkwood open-pored trim with Pearl Chrome highlight trim finisher are amongst the highlights that amplify the luxurious ambiance of the interior.
For drivers, the standout feature is the fully digital instrument display along with the central Control Display. Its size has increased to 12.3 inches compared to its predecessors 10.25 inches. The High Gloss Black control buttons in the centre console and instrument panels in Sensatec gives the interior some sophistication and elegance. Sports seats for both driver and front passenger, along with an M leather steering wheel and head-up display for the driver, completes the sporty interior theme of the 2021 BMW 630i GT M Sport.
The New BMW 630i GT M Sport is akin to that of a luxury class model, with automatic air conditioning with 4-Zone control, three full-size seats at the rear, along with generous legroom. Additional touches of comfort are roller sunblinds – electrical for the rear window and mechanical for rear passengers’ side windows. A two-part panoramic glass roof at just over one metre in length and 90 centimetres wide, provides an extraordinary sense of space and an exceptionally light and airy cabin feel.
Complementing the array of comfort features, are the superb 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, which ensures unparalleled on-the-road entertainment.
In terms of driver assistance systems, the 2021 BMW 630i GT M Sport comes complete with the Driving Assistant and Parking Assistant Plus, as well as Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go function. Also standard for the New BMW 630i GT M Sport is the fully digital BMW Live Cockpit Professional with BMW Operating System 7, which provides access to a world of BMW digital features. These features include navigation, the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, 4G LTE connectivity and various services such as Remote Software Upgrade and over-the-air map updates for the navigation system.
With the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and BMW Gesture Control, the New BMW 630i GT M Sport really does connect the driver to the car. The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant provides support tailored to the preferences of driver and front passenger, with functions such as navigation, air conditioning, multimedia and telephony, while BMW Gesture Control offers ease of accessibility, allowing for greater convenience and attention on the road.
The New BMW 630i GT M Sport is powered by an inline four-cylinder petrol engine capable of a maximum output of 258 hp, peak torque of 400 Nm and a top speed of 250km/h. The century sprint can be completed in just 6.5 seconds. Fuel consumption is measured at 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres of travel.
The 2021 CKD BMW 630i GT M Sport is offered in four exquisite exterior colours – Bernina Grey Amber Effect, Mineral White, Carbon Black and Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect. As for the interior, customers have the choice of either Leather ‘Dakota’ Black or Leather ‘Dakota’ Cognac – both of which are complete with exclusive stitching and leather piping in contrast.
