It is believed that the new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe will maintain the same wheelbase and overall length of the regular 4-Series. It will however obviously feature a taller roof to provide additional cabin space and warrant it being called the ‘Gran Coupe’.
When the car first debuts, it is expected to arrive in 428i and 435i specifications. These engines will remain untouched from the regular 4-Series Coupe, meaning the 428i Gran Coupe will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivering 240 hp. The BMW 435i Gran Coupe will then receive a 300 hp 3.0-liter turbocharged unit. Thankfully, manual transmissions are said to be available for both along with an optional eight-speed automatic.
Most excitingly however is the fact that the 4-Series Gran Coupe would actually receive an M variant. If this turns out to be true, then the M4 Gran Coupe would feature the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder delivering 425 hp of the new M3 sedan and M4 coupe.
Expect to see more official photos and details in the next few days when the car is revealed. After that, we’ll just have to wait a couple weeks longer to check it out in the flesh at Geneva!
