(MENAFN - Arab News) The all-new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe - the first four-door coupe in the history of the BMW brand - has arrived in Saudi Arabia following its unveiling to global audiences at the 82nd Geneva International Motor Show earlier in March this year.
The third model in the BMW 6 Series line-up, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe follows the successful debut of the next generation Convertible and Coupe models launched last year.
The aim in the design process of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe was to achieve synergy between the aesthetics and dynamics typical of a BMW Coupe and functional versatility of a four-door sedan.
The result is a car with a distinctive character but unmistakably a BMW.
The exterior sets new standards in terms of aesthetic design for four-door vehicles as seen in its low height and the flat roofline that smoothly flows into the rear end.
The low and graceful lines are especially impressive when looking at the car's side profile.
The recessed passenger compartment appears low and smoothly stretched because the window silhouette extends deep into the C pillar.
The four-door coupe is a four-seater that offers generous travel comfort in the back with an additional third rear seat, which can be used for shorter journeys.
Powered by a choice of two engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe offers a sporty and powerful drive experience.
The six-in-line engine in the BMW 640i Gran Coupe comprises a turbocharging system, High Pressure Injection and valvetronic, twin-scroll turbocharging.
The exhaust gas pulses from each bank of three cylinders are fed through two separate channels to the turbine wheel.
Commenting on the launch, Stavros Paraskevaides, managing director, Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors (BMW), said: "The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe follows in the tire tracks of the BMW 6 Series Convertible and Coup that we launched last year.
We have already received a lot of interest for this new BMW model and are confident that its distinctive character " such as the low Coup-style roof line " combined with dynamic driving, unmatched features and elegant style, will continue turn heads amongst Saudi customers."
