BMW has recently launched a four-door variant of the 4-series coupe, bringing the all-new 4-Series Gran Coupe to its showroom floors. The design concept for the model is to bring the sportiness of the coupe and the convenience of a sedan together in one car.
“Taking its cue from a large BMW coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe combines a dynamic and sleek silhouette with additional functionality and more spaciousness in the rear passenger compartment.”
says Won Kyu Kang, exterior designer responsible for the BMW 4 Series.
Power for the 4-Sereis Gran Coupe comes from one of two engine options. The first, for the 428i, is a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder that makes 240hp. More powerful is the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline six that powers the 435i, offering up 300hp. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed sport automatic transmission.
The exterior design is similar to the 4-series coupe, but variations can be found in the longer and higher roofline. A set of full LED headlights light the way, while the taillights are placed far out to the sides, and the wheels are all housed by bold arches.
Inside the 4-Series Gran Coupe BMW offers cargo configurations with folding rear seats, Comfort Access for the tailgate, and a flat-screen freestanding iDrive monitor.
“The interior of the four-door coupe unifies the seemingly contradictory character of a dynamic two-door coupe with the elegance and utility of a BMW Sedan or a BMW Gran Turismo.”
notes Tim Shih, interior designer responsible for the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
Starting price for the 4-Series Gran Coupe comes in at $41,225 for the 428i, $43,225 for the xDrive variant, and $46,725 for the 435i Gran Coupe.
