2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe Redesign. 2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is one brand new car from BMW that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe.
BMW proudly presents the new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé (combined fuel consumption: 8.1-4.5 l/100 km; combined CO2 emission: 189-119 g/km), the first four-door coupé in the premium midsize class that represents a consistent extension of the model range. Following the launch of the BMW 4-Series Coupé and Convertible, the Gran Coupé is the third model to join the new BMW 4-Series, which is longer, wider and more dynamic than any of the previous midsize series due to the balanced proportions of the vehicles. The new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé combines the sleek look of a two-door coupé with the functionality provided by four-doors and expansive spaciousness, including a wide-access luggage compartment.
On the U.S. market the new 4 Series Gran Coupe will be priced from $41,225 for the 428i version.
Just as you would expect from any BMW Gran Coupè, the 4 Series variant will look like a coupe with the back end extended just enough to fit a rear door. The rest of the car – its profile, roofline, window line, etc. – all retain the same look as the coupe.
Up front the model will feature the iconic kidney grille and dual round headlight clusters and with LED dual headlights being offered as an alternative. As on the coupe, the front apron is divided in three parts, with large air intakes, while the left and right apron corners featuring vertical air channels for the Air Curtains.
Only when viewed from the side you will notice that you are looking at something different than a coupe. The roofline is gently sloped, while the side windows have a taut and smooth appearance. The B-pillar is finished in high-gloss black, so is nearly invisible and creates a homogeneous profile. At the rear, just like on the coupe, the taillights are positioned at the outer edges to receive the swage lines and to offer the 4 Series a unique character.
2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Exterior Dimensions:
The new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé extends the model range of vehicles available in the premium midsize class. It combines the sleek look of a two-door coupé with the functionality provided by four-doors and expansive spaciousness, including a wide-access luggage compartment. The sporty and premium character of the BMW 4-Series is combined with intelligent functionality and refined elegance in the Gran Coupé.
While this model shares the same length, width, wheelbase and track with the extremely dynamic two-door version, the roofline of the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé is 112 millimeter longer and slopes gently to the rear of the vehicle. What’s more, the silhouette is twelve millimeters higher to offer more headroom and comfort in the rear passenger compartment. This contributes to increased headroom on all seats and the overall feeling of interior spaciousness. At the same time, the short front and rear overhangs, the long wheelbase relative to the vehicle length, and the set-back passenger compartment are typical BMW touches that add to the perfect balance of the body design and the noble appearance of this car, which is derived from the elegant BMW 6-Series Gran Coupé.
The interior of the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupé presents a stylish fusion of sporty allure and exclusivity. An approach known as layering – the intelligent utilization of space through the structuring of lines and surfaces into layers – expresses the hallmark BMW driver orientation without compromising the passenger experience. The stylish and functional elegance of the interior is highlighted by prominent round instruments with a black panel look and the free-standing flat-screen iDrive monitor. The cockpit and rear passenger compartment are visually joined by trim strips originating in the instrument panel and extending along the upper sections of the door panels into the rear, and embellished by dual-color window sills. The B column blends into the side panel design and includes flowing graphic effects across the entire surface. The side supports and slender head restraints in the rear seat are contoured for a modern, seemingly molded one-piece look that adds to the sporty character of the 4+1 seater.
The backrest can be folded in 40:20:40 configurations to create more luggage and stowage space as required – with a flat floor for easy loading and unloading. When the seat is completely folded down, the maximum volume capacity is 1,300 liters. If only the center segment is utilized, four people can ride comfortably while transporting long and bulky items like snowboards, skis, etc. When not folded down, this middle section provides space for two cup holders. An optional feature is the Smart Opener, which automatically opens the boot lid via gesture control – namely a foot movement underneath the rear bumper when arms are full carrying groceries, packages, etc.
U.S. customers will have the possibility to choose between two different models: 428i and 435i, both offered in standard or combined with the BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system.
The base model, 428i gets a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine equipped with TwinPower Turbo technology and delivering a total of 240 horsepower available between 5,000 and 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 255 pound-feet generated between 1,250 rpm and 4,800 rpm. This combination ensures a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of 5.7 seconds and a fuel consumption of 23 mpg city/35 mpg highway/27 mpg combined.
The top version on the other hand gets a 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder engine with an output of 300 horsepower delivered 5,800 rpm and 6,000 rpm and a peak torque of 300 pound-feet generated delivered between 1,300 rpm and 5,000 rpm. The 435i is a little bit faster and goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, while fuel economy goes down to 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway/25 mpg combined.
Both models can be combined with BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive technology that helps reducing understeer and oversteer in curves and thus contributes to agile and precision handling.
Both engines will be mated to a standard eight-speed sport Steptronic transmission that can be used in both automatic or manual version, just by using the shift paddles on the steering wheel. It comes with two driving modes: Drive and Sport which can be selected by using the Driving Dynamics Control on the center console.
