When the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe was introduced, many wondered about the intended role of the vehicle. Is the proposed niche for a four-door coupe between the 3 Series Sedan and 3 Series GT too small? Are the differences too small when compared technically with the sedan? Questions like these have long since been answered, because the Gran Coupe is the undisputed best-seller of the 4 Series.

This is particularly clear in the domestic market of Germany: 60 percent of the sold 4 Series is a Gran Coupe, only 15 percent of customers access the two-door. The convertible represents 25 percent of sales. The balance of power worldwide is not quite as clear, but overall, the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has a share of 50 percent of sales.

Why so many customers resort to the four-door 4 Series is also clear from these new photos from Poland: the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe combines the sporty design of the two-door coupé with the everyday benefits of a limousine. The large tailgate also ensures that the luggage compartment is even easier to load than the 3 Series Sedan. And many customers appreciate the cabin space of the Gran Coupe when compared to its brother, the two-door coupe.

In these photos from Poland we see the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe with M Sport Package in a bright red color. Various tuning components from BMW M Performance add dark accents in high-gloss black or carbon fiber, and make the four-door coupe appear even more confident. These photos also emphasize our previous statements: This four-door coupe is a highly attractive alternative to the classic 3 Series sedan.
