The new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé is available in four trim levels (SE, Sport, Luxury and M Sport) and has the same high level of standard specification as the convertible.

There is a wide range of engine and drivetrain combinations from the powerful 306hp 435i, as well as xDrive variants, to the new 418d Gran Coupé, which has fuel consumption of more than 60mpg.

Enhancing the appeal to corporate customers, CO2 emissions of both the manual and automatic variants is just 121g/km.

The typical BMW short overhangs, the long bonnet and set-back passenger compartment complement the design of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé to express perfect balance combined with a bold presence.

Up front, both models are identical and share the typical BMW design features such as the double-kidney grille, dual round headlights with Corona rings and the large air intake in the front apron.

Gently stretched, the roofline flows across both rear doors and blends into the slightly raised and short rear section of the car.

Prices are 418dSE, €46,170; 420d SE; € 47,370; 420d M Sport € 51,870; 428i Sport € 53,730; 420d XDrive € 49,620

From July the range will be extended with the addition of two powerful diesels to the line-up. The top diesel variant is the six-cylinder engine in the BMW 435d xDrive Gran Coupé, delivering 313hp, while the BMW 430d Gran Coupé has an output of 258hp and develops a maximum torque of 560Nm. BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive can also be chosen on this engine. A 420i xDrive model will also become available.

The new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé models are fitted with front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats, Servotronic steering, a Sport multi-function leather steering wheel and Xenon headlights.

This is in addition to Dakota leather upholstery, Two-zone air conditioning and Cruise control. Bluetooth, USB, Comfort Go, Drive Performance Control, iDrive Controller, 6.5-inch free-standing colour screen, DAB radio and automatic lights, wipers and boot opening complete the standard specification of all models across the range.

All 4 Series Gran Coupé Sport, Luxury and M Sport models feature 18-inch alloy wheels and Sport seats as standard. Luxury customers can switch to standard seats at no cost
