In 2014, BMW is rumored to launch an additional premium compact model based on the 3 Series architecture and the 6 Series Gran Coupe idea. Dubbed BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, the four-door sport and compact vehicle will compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLS CLA. A prototype was recently spied in the snowy Sweden during the “typical” winter testing sessions.

Built under the codename F36, the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a compact four-door coupe that follows the same design principles, at a smaller scale, as the recently launched 6 Series Gran Coupe. The four-door features a longer rear window that flows into a conventional trunk, a design feature that visually increases the side dimension of the car.

Just like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the side view shows a stretched and dynamic design that will not only give the car a more premium look but it will also offer more interior room for passengers. The overall dynamic design would appeal to a younger demographic as well and will be a viable alternative to the high-end 6 Series Coupe.

The front and rear design are new to the 4 Series Gran Coupe and will differ from the two-door models. The packages, options and powertrains are expected to be almost identical to the 4 Series Coupe and convertible models.

BMW aims to launch the 4 Series Gran Coupe in the second half of 2014.

    So if this is intended to compete with the MB CLS we are to assume that the 6GC competes with what? The 6GC already competes with the CLS and we can assume BMW isn’t intending for them both to.

    It seems this 4GT model will look better than the 3GT. In my opinion 3GT is a copy of Honda Crosstour.

      You’re mixing up the Gran Coupe with the GT.
      This will be a 4 series Gran Coupe, the smaller version of the 6 Gran Coupe
      The 3 series GT is the smaller version of the 5 GT
      Gran Coupe is not a GT.
