Truly, there is nothing like the Germans when building different kinds of cars to satisfy every niche out there. BMW, for instance, produces an SUV (or SAV, in BMW lingo) that has the traits of a coupe, known as the BMW X6 and X4. Then there’s a sedan that combines the practicality of a station wagon, the sloping roofline of a coupe, and the tall sitting position of an SUV, known as the BMW 3 Series and 5 Series Gran Turismo, so it’s no surprise then for Asian Carmakers Corporation to release this, the BMW 4 Series GranCoupe.
Designed as a more desirable sedan, in the form of a 4-door coupe, including other coupe traits such as a sloping roofline, frameless doors, and 2+2 seating, the BMW 4 Series is a more attainable version of the rather beautiful BMW 6 Series GranCoupe. Just in case you’ve been unaware of the changes behind BMW’s nomenclature, the odd-numbered models are their more conventional vehicles, such as hatchbacks, sedans, wagons, and SUVs. The even-numbered ones are the more desirable body styles, such as coupes and convertibles.
The interior is carried over from the 4 Series Coupe, with a “floating” center screen design, and a driver oriented cockpit. There are three BMW Lines to choose from. Modern, Sport, and Luxury (excluding the M Sport model), with each line having their own distinct personalities and color schemes.
The BMW 4 Seres GranCoupe, in 420d guise, is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 184 hp and 380 Nm of torque. The only transmission available is an ZF 8-Speed Automatic, propelling the rear wheels.
A few notable features equipped in our 420d GranCoupe are a power liftgate, BMW’s iDrive system, rear aircon vents, and a host of other connectivity and luxury features.
