BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe officially unveiled – Video and Photos inside
The first official images, videos and details with the brand new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe have been released by the German based automaker, ahead of its public debut, scheduled for Geneva.
BMW’s newest model up to date is another body style based on the new 3-Series generation, which is known as the 4-Series Gran Coupe, and, as you might have expected, it’s basically a smaller version of the 6-Series Gran Coupe. The vehicle stands at 4,638 mm in length, 1,825 mm in width and it’s riding on a 2,810 mm wheelbase, having a 112 mm longer roof and sitting 12 mm higher than the regular 4-Series Coupe, in order to provide a sleeker and smoother appearance.
The new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe has a trunk capacity of 480 liters, becoming 35 liters more spacious than its two-door brother, and with the rear seats folded, this can increase up to 1,300 liters. As far as the engine lineup goes, the 428i Gran Coupe will receive a 240 HP (179 kW) and 345 Nm (255 lb-ft) of torque 2.0 liter unit under its hood, while the 435i Gran Coupe will come with 300 HP (224 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque 3.0 liter six-cylinder unit.
The engines mentioned above will be the only ones available in the United States, along with the 8-speed automatic transmission, while Europeans will also be getting the 420i Gran Coupe, with its 181 HP (135 kW) from the 2.0 liter turbocharged unit, along with a 418d with 141 HP (105 kW) and the 420d with 181 HP (135 kW).

The 435i can be yours from 46,725 USD.
