BMW Australia has announced local pricing and specification details for the sexy new 4 Series Gran Coupe. The new model, arriving in June, will become the smaller brother to the 6 Series Gran Coupe.
Presented in the trendy four-door coupe shape, the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be available in Australia in four variant levels; the 420i, 420d, 428i, and the 435i. Each come with a TwinPower turbo engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive.
The entry-level 420i uses the company’s relatively new 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder. It produces 135kW and 270Nm, offering 0-100km/h acceleration in a reasonably quick 7.6 seconds. It also offers an average fuel consumption of 6.1L/100km.
Next up is the 420d. It comes with a similar engine as the 420i only it’s a turbo-diesel unit. It produces 135kW as well but it delivers a surging 380Nm of torque. Accelerating from 0-100km/h takes 7.5 seconds, while the fuel economy average is just 4.6L/100km.
Sitting at the higher end of the range is the 428i. It comes with a tweaked version of the 420i engine, developing 180kW and 350Nm. With the added power, 0-100km/h comes up in 6.0 seconds flat and fuel economy remains good at 6.4L/100km on the combined cycle.
Lastly, at the top of the range is the potent 435i. It uses BMW’s much-loved 3.0-litre turbo straight six engine producing 225kW and 400Nm. The average fuel economy is rated at 7.6L/100km.
All models showcase fine luxury inside, with leather upholstery, a comprehensive multimedia system with iDrive control, a 40:20:20 split fold rear seat, and an electric taillight with 480 litres of cargo capacity.
For the firs time in Australia, all Gran Coupe models will come with an in-built SIM card to enable a full suite of BMW ConnectedDrive features.
