BMW reveals 4 Series Gran Coupe

Published 03 February 2014

BMW has unveiled the third model in the 4 Series range - the Gran Coupe. Following on from the coupe and convertible variants, the Gran Coupe is a four-door saloon but with the sleek shape of the 4 Series and will be a strong rival to the likes of the Audi A5 Sportback. It goes on sale in June with prices starting at £29,420.

Despite the extra doors, the Gran Coupe is actually the same size as the 4 Series Coupe and shares the same front end design. It does have a higher roofline which stretches further back meaning better headroom for rear passengers and a larger more practical boot - up to 480 litres. The rear seats split and fold 40/20/40 while all models come with with an electrically opening tailgate as standard.

From launch there will be five engine choices. The top model is the impressive 435i which is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine developing 306PS. The 420i gets a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 184PS while the same engine is used in the 428i but with power boosted to 245PS.

The diesel range includes the excellent 420d with 184PS which can return an average of 60.1mpg according to the official figures with emissions of 124g/km. Alongside this is the 418d which is even cleaner with 119g/km and official economy of 62.8mpg. The 428i and 420d engines are also available with xDrive four-wheel drive and while all models come with a six-speed manual as standard, an eight-speed Steptronic is available as an option.

The Gran Coupe will be available in five different trims SE, Sport, Modern, Luxury and M Sport. Prices are identical the Coupe model which means the cheapest version is the 420i SE at £29,420. The 418d SE is £30,995 while the 420d variant is £31,795.
