Given an elliptic curve $ E/\mathbb{Q}$ with torsion subgroup $ G = E(\mathbb{Q})_{\rm {tors}}$ we study what groups (up to isomorphism) can occur as the torsion subgroup of $ E$ base-extended to $ K$, a degree 6 extension of $ \mathbb{Q}$. We also determine which groups $ H = E(K)_{\rm {tors}}$ can occur infinitely often and which ones occur for only finitely many curves. This article is a first step towards a complete classification of torsion growth over sextic fields.
