These are the clearest photos yet of the upcoming BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, the third body type of the BMW 4 Series after the Coupe and the yet-to-be-launched Convertible. Like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, it’s essentially a four-door version of its two-door sibling.
You may question the need for a 4 Series Gran Coupe since the 3 Series and 4 Series are so similar. After all, the 3 Series and 4 Series look very much alike with near identical interiors as well, as opposed to the big difference between the 5 Series and the 6 Series. But BMW seems to think there’s enough differentiation.
As you can see from the images, the 4 Series Gran Coupe has a more cab-rearward look compared to the 4 Series, with the roofline above the C-pillar having a more sloping design. The car looks wider and the lower roof gives the impression that it’s longer as well. We wonder if the wheelbase has been extended like what BMW did with the 3 Series GT.
Other than the different side profile and wider front/rear view, everything else is as predicted. We even see the same front bumper as the 4 Series Coupe on the car, which is probably why BMW didn’t bother putting any disguise on the front.
