2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

The 2014 Geneva auto show is hosting the official public unveiling of what could possibly be BMW’s hottest mid sized sedan, the 4 Series Gran Coupe.

While the German company unveiled on the web the model a month ago, the Geneva venue is a good way to celebrate the model in all its glory – with its sleek and slender look – that even puts to shame the more serious 3 Series sedan.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe shares the Coupe’s underpinnings and dimensions – the length of 4638 mm, width of 1825 mm and wheelbase of 2810 mm, but naturally, has a longer roof and the overall height is increased by 12 mm. It also adopts the 3 Series Gran Turismo hatchback approach, which should allow for easier access to the 480 liter trunk.

Sharing much of the underpinnings with the 3 Series sedan/ 4 Series coupe, the Gran Coupe takes all of its powerplants, from the 420i version with 181 bhp and 418d with 141 bhp to the powerful 435i that churns out 300 bhp (224 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) from a six-cylinder 3.0-liter – allowing it to reach 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

BMW offers besides the usual rear wheel drive also the choice of all-wheel drive xDrive, while depending on the market there will be on option manual or automatic gearboxes.
