We have reported in detail about the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. Now, BMW have officially revealed the car, which is expected to be shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, unlike its elder sibling- 6 Series Gran Coupe, utilizes a more practical hatchback arrangement, more in common with the 3-Series GT. The 4-Series places somewhat more emphasis on styling, with frameless windows to back-up its Coupe moniker.
Engines and variants available with the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe :
- 418d producing 143 bhp
- 420i with 184 bhp
- 428i with a 245 bhp 2.0-liter
- 435i with a 306 bhp 3.0-liter
The BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupe: a length of 4,638 millimeters, a width of 1,825 millimeters and a wheelbase of 2,810 millimeters. On the front, both models are identical and share the typical BMW design features like the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights and the large air intake in the front apron. However, the roof of the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is twelve millimeters higher, 112 mm longer and gently stretched allowing it to flow smoothly into the rear quarter panels and boot lid. The typical BMW short overhangs, the long bonnet and the set-back passenger compartment complement the design of the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe to express perfect balance combined with a bold presence.
The five-door bodystyle increases approximately 50kg weight when compared to a standard two-door 4-Series, and suspension settings are similar, albeit modified slightly from the Coupe. There is extra bracing at the front, which is said to improve body stiffness and steering precision.
The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe will go on sale in the UK on 21 June, and prices will start from £29,420 for the basic models, going upto £41,655 for a top-of-the-line 435i M Sport. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
