BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe came to market this Spring to compete with the Audi A5 Sportback. A5 sales have been too strong for BMW to ignore, even if it means risking to angry some of the hardcore BMW fans who are seeing more and more BMW niche models.

The four-door coupe 4 Series will sit above the two-door coupe model and below the M4 Coupe.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe combines the sleek look and sporty character of the 4 Series Coupe with the functionality provided by four-doors and a spacious, flexible luggage compartment.

From market launch,  the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe with M Sport Package will be available to customers from around the world. The four-door coupe only comes with three pre-configured packages, Sport, Luxury and M Sport.

Globally BMW will offer the 420i, 420d, 428i and 435i models.
