BMW has revealed their 4 Series Gran Coupe variant. The new model lineage is unlike the four-door 6 Series Gran Coupe, however the rear of the 4 Series Gran Coupe opens a hatch rather than a boot. It is sporty car that sharing platforms with its Coupe and Convertible siblings, the F36 4 Series Gran Coupe sports exactly the same footprint as its two-door counterpart, stretching the tape measure at 4,638mm stem to stem and spanning 1,825mm wide with a wheelbase of 2,810mm.

The new Gran Coupe offers additional headroom and also an additional 38 litres of boot space totalling 480 litres; backrests of the rear seats allow 40:20:40 split-folding to enable expansion of cargo volume to a maximum of 1,300 litres. The rear hatch comes standard with powered operation; a Smart Opener feature which allows foot-triggered operation can be additionally specified.

BMW’s familiar array of 2.0-litre four- and 3.0-litre six-cylinder engines are once again called upon to power the 4 Gran Coupe. Petrol power is supplied by the 2.0-litre N20 twin-scroll turbo mill producing 184hp/270Nm for the 420i and 245hp/350Nm for the 428i. The six-cylinder 3.0-litre 435i tops the range for the time being with 306hp and 400Nm.

On the diesel front, BMW’s 2.0-litre N47 turbodiesel is offered in 143hp/320Nm and 184hp/380Nm states of tune, powering the 418d and 420d respectively. All variants of the 4 Series Gran Coupe come with six-speed manual transmissions and rear-wheel drive as standard; ZF’s now-familiar 8-speed auto is optionally available for all variants and is standard for the 430d and 435d. The 435d will also come with xDrive AWD as standard; xDrive will initially be offered as options for the 420d and 428i, though this upgrade will eventually be offered to the 420i and 435i as well.
