BMW has presented a new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé globally,
the first four-door coupé in the premium midsize class that represents a
consistent extension of the model range. Following the launch of the BMW 4 Series
Coupé and Convertible, the Gran Coupé is the third model to join the new BMW 4
Series, which is longer, wider and more dynamic than any of the previous
midsize series due to the balanced proportions of the vehicles. The new BMW 4
Series Gran Coupé combines the sleek look of a two-door coupé with the
functionality provided by four-doors and expansive spaciousness, including a
wide-access luggage compartment.
The BMW 4 Series
Gran Coupé has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupé: a length of
4,638 mm, a width of 1,825mm and a wheelbase of 2,810 mm. Up 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 Coupé is 12mm 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 Coupé to
express perfect balance combined with a bold presence.
This extended roofline highlights the elegance and
sophistication of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé, while setting new standards for
aesthetics in the midsize class that also have decisive practical advantages.
For example, there is more headroom in the interior, not to mention added
comfort. The boot volume of 480 litre is 35 liters larger than that of the
two-door version for more convenience in meeting the challenges of everyday
driving situations with the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé.
The new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé offers a choice of five
powerful, cultivated and efficient engines. The high-end is represented by the
435i’s six-cylinder in-line 3.0-liter petrol engine delivering 225 kW/306 hp
(fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined: 11.4/6.2/8.1 l/100 km; combined
CO2 emission: 189 g/km). The BMW 428i Gran Coupé (fuel consumption
urban/extra-urban/combined: 8.9/5.3/6.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emission: 154
g/km)and the BMW 420i Gran Coupé (fuel consumption urban/extra-urban/combined:
8.7/5.1/6.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emission: 149 g/km) are equipped with light
and powerful four-cylinder engines that deliver 180 kW/245 hp and 135 kW/184
