The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé has exactly the same dimensions as the two-door coupé: a length of 4,638 mm, width of 1,825 mm and wheelbase of 2,810 mm. Up front, both models are identical and share the typical BMW design features, namely the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights and large air intake in the front apron. 

However, the roof of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé is twelve mm higher, 112 mm longer and gently stretched allowing it to flow smoothly into the rear quarter panels and boot lid.

At the same time, the boot volume of 480-litres is 35-litres 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 maximum volume of the boot is 1,300-litres.

The shape of the rear bench seat resembles the look of two individual seats, but the upholstered “console surface” between them can also accommodate a third passenger in the middle (4+1 seater).

The new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé offers a choice of five different engines. The high-end is represented by the 435i’s six-cylinder in-line 3.0-liter petrol engine delivering 306 bhp. The BMW 428i Gran Coupé are equipped with light and powerful 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engines that deliver 245 bhp and 184 bhp, respectively. Like all BMW diesel variants, two four-cylinder engines will be offered: The 184 bhp 420d Gran Coupé and 143 bhp 418d Gran Coupé.

All diesel and petrol engines feature the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and comply with the EU6 emissions standard. 8-speed Steptronic transmission comes standard for the entire 4 Series range.
