The formula “Gran Coupe” will soon be available for a second BMW. The news comes from Auto Express that reveals some details about the new 4-Series Gran Coupe. The car will be built using the same framework and main mechanical components of the 4-Series: it will be measuring about 4.65 m in length, considerably less than the 5.1 m of the 6-Series Gran Coupe, but suitable to enter the D-segment. The wheelbase will increase of a few centimeters, to provide more space for the rear passengers.
Stylistically it will share few elements with the 3-Series. The headlights extend as far as the double kidney grille, forming a continuous optical unit, while the aluminum inserts give a luxurious and refined look to the car. The BMW designers will then restyle the sweeping roofline, which will define the third pillar. The engine range will include a 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol or diesel. An M variant is also on the list. The 4-Series Gran Coupe will make its debut in late 2013.
