BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe revealed

More practical version of the BMW 4 Series coupe will be available in the UK from June

BMW has released details of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, a four-door version of the two-door 4 Series, which will rival the Audi A5 Sportback.

Although the new car is the same length and width as the standard 4 Series Coupe, it has a higher and longer roof to give passengers in the back more headroom. A larger boot also helps to make the Gran Coupe more practical than the two-door version.

With the 4 Series Gran Coupe, BMW hopes to attract customers who want the practicality of the four-door 3 Series combined with the added luxury of the 4 Series. The modified roof makes the rear seats more usable for adults and expands boot space by 35 litres - with the rear seats folded down total capacity increases to 1,300 litres.

The boot features a slick automatic lid that can be opened normally or by waving your foot under the rear bumper when you have the key in your pocket, which is particularly useful when carrying awkward or heavy items.

The Gran Coupe will be available with five different engines – three petrol and two diesel. The 420i will be the entry-level petrol model offering 181bhp, while the 428i gets a 242bhp petrol engine and the range-topping 435i has 302bhp.

The two diesel versions will be the 418d and the 420d, with the 420d the only model in the rear-wheel drive range to be offered with BMW’s four-wheel drive xDrive system. The 141bhp 418d will do 63mpg and emit 119g/km of CO2.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe goes on sale in the UK on 21 June and will be the same price as the two-door Coupe version. That means the entry-level 420i SE will start at £29,420, with Sport, Modern, Luxury and M Sport trim levels costing between £1,500 and £3,000 extra. The powerful 435i Luxury model will cost £41,155.
