The BMW 6 Series GT has received a makeover for 2021 with revisions to its exterior, interior and features list along with a slightly rejigged variant lineup
Dhruv Saxena

For 2021, the BMW 6 Series GT has received a mid-life makeover. The bulk of the visual changes are restricted to the front end. It gets a new set of headlamps with angular L-shape LED DRLs accompanied by BMW’s Laserlight lighting setup in this range-topping M Sport trim. The grille seems a tad bigger and the bumper is new as well. The rest of the car remains unchanged, however, there a few new exterior colour options on offer.

Inside, the dashboard greets you with a familiar layout but the choice of colour for the upholstery is different from the outgoing model’s. The most prominent changes here come in the form of a new 12.3-inch touchscreen display and a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Those seated in the back now get USB Type-C ports. The BMW 6 Series GT’s USP is its rear seat offering generous amounts of legroom, knee room and headroom with electric recline function, electrically operable sun blinds and individual screens on hand to pamper those seated in the back. 6 GT’s four-zone climate control allows all four occupants to set the temperature as per their liking and there’s also a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio setup serving up an impressive aural experience.

DESERT ADVENTURE BIKE TRAINING

The Southwest desert is arguably one of the most uniquely scenic areas of the United States. Its vast majesty, laced with a network of roads of every kind, encompasses six states. These backcountry byways can take us to some amazingly beautiful and desolate destinations. The catch? They are mostly unpaved and many are technical, sandy, rutted, off-camber desert trails with stream crossings and frequently changing slopes. Wind and rain ensure that no two days will see the exact same conditions.
