New entry point joins 6 Series GT line-up, and it's coming to Australia
UPDATE (3/4/18): BMW Australia has confirmed the 620d GT will arrive in local showrooms in September.
The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo range has been bolstered by the addition of a new entry-level variant – the 620d GT.
Becoming the first four-cylinder diesel model in the range, the 620d GT features BMW's 140kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel under the bonnet, with peak torque available between 1750 and 2500rpm.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, with 0-100km/h taking a claimed 7.9 seconds. Fuel use, meanwhile, is rated at just 4.8L/100km on the combined cycle.
In Europe, the introduction of the 620d brings the total number of engine variants in the 6 Series Gran Turismo range to five.
BMW's local division has confirmed with CarAdvice that the 620d GT will indeed make it Down Under in September, with pricing and specifications to be announced "at a later date".
Currently, the Australian range consists of the 630i GT and 640i GT, which start at $123,500 and $148,900 respectively.
With that in mind, our guess is that the 620d GT will kick off around the $110,000-$115,000 mark when it arrives locally. Stay tuned for all the latest.
