BMW unveiled their new 4 Series Gran Coupe this weekend, ahead of its official Geneva Motor Show in March.
The first four-door coupe in the mid-class class, the Gran Coupe follows the launch of the BMW 4 Series Coupe and Convertible, combining sleekness of a two-door coupé with the functionality and spaciousness provided by four-doors. It actually has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupé, and is near identical in some of the design features, including the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights and the large air intake in the front apron. The roof, however, is nearly half an inch higher and 4 1/2 inches longer.
The 4 Series Gran Coupe will offer the choice of five engines. The high-end is the 435i’s 6-cylinder in-line 3.0-liter petrol engine, delivering 306 hp; the BMW 420i and 428i Gran Coupé are equipped with light and powerful four-cylinder engines that deliver 184 hp and 245 hp, respectively; the 420d delivers 184 hp and the 418d delivers 143 hp.
The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe will hit showrooms this summer. However, pricing has yet to be announced.
