Photoshop artist Theophilus Chin shows us what a BMW 4 Series Gran Tourer would look like. The idea of a new 4 Series model is only being unofficially entertained because Mercedes-Benz is offering a similar premium product. The CLS Shooting Brak and CLA Shooting Brake.
But if BMW decides to add one more midsize premium product, the their entire 3 and 4 Series family will consist of seven members: F30 3 Series Sedan, F34 3 GT, F31 3 Series Touring, F32 4 Series Coupe, F33 4 Series Convertible, F36 4 Series Gran Coupe, and the aforementioned 4 Gran Tourer.
The question we would all pose is whether BMW really needs another niche product that will only create confusion among buyers and would barely fit between any existing products.
The attractive 3 Series Touring is one of the most sought 3 Series vehicles on the Old Continent. Based on its design, space and volume, the 3 Series Touring fits the bill for many customers looking for a product with those characteristics.
Despite having a lifestyle demographic in sight, we believe a 4 Series Gran Tourer is not something we would see in the foreseeable future. But that doesn’t stop us from enjoying a fairly realistic rendering.[Photo: TheophilusChin.com]
