BMW product offensive continues

BMW product offensive continues

BMW-4-Series-Gran-CoupeBMW has released pricing for the all-new 4 Series Gran Coupe, which will be available as either a 428i Sport Line or six-cylinder 435i M Sport.

It is part of a continuing offensive of new products as BMW seeks to maintain its leadership in the premium car sector locally.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is 4,638 mm in length, 1,825 mm wide and shares the same wheelbase and track of the 4 Series Coupe. The major difference between the Coupe and the Gran Coupe lies in the roofline, which sits 12 mm higher and extends a further 112 mm towards the rear of the car.

The two frameless rear doors of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe offer greater access to the 2+1 rear bench seat and the increased height and length of the roof allows for greater rear passenger headroom and improved comfort.

Added to this is the 35 litre increase in the luggage compartment, now offering 480 litres of room and accessible through a large opening tailgate, which also features electric opening and closing assistance.

Split folding rear seats, in a 40:20:40 configuration, create up to 1,300 litres of luggage space.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe line-up is identical to the two-door Coupe models which are all powered by the latest BMW TwinPower turbo engines with an eight-speed Sports Automatic transmission as standard.

BMW says both models combine efficient engine and transmission combinations with a suite of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies to benefit fuel consumption and emissions.

Each BMW 4 Series Coupe is equipped with Auto Stop/Start, Brake Energy Regeneration, ECOPRO mode and on-demand ancillaries such as electric power steering.

Both BMW 4 Series Gran Coupes come with 19-inch alloy wheels and Adaptive M Suspension as standard, as well as Adaptive LED headlights, and a lines package is also standard fitment. In the case of the 428i, Sport Line is standard, whereas the 435i comes complete with the M Sport package.

The ‘Sport Line’ features specific high-gloss black for the front and rear bumper trims, kidney grille, B-pillar trims and window recess covers with a black chrome trim for the exhaust tip. The interior is also characterised with chrome pearl grey surrounds on air-conditioning and radio controls, sport leather steering wheel with red contrast stitching, high-gloss black interior trim with coral red accent lines and the choice of black leather upholstery with red stitching or coral red upholstery with black stitching.

The 435i Gran Coupe comes equipped with features that support its high-end positioning. The combination of standard Adaptive M suspension, variable sport steering and high performance four-piston fixed calliper brake system on the front substantially enhances the dynamics and agility of this model.

Additional features such as the inclusion of a standard M Sport package (optional on 428i) – which comprises19-inch M double-spoke alloy wheels, M aerodynamics package, M leather steering wheel and a host of M Sports package trim features such as kidney grille with nine bars in high-gloss black and BMW individual roof-liner in anthracite.

The 435i Gran Coupe also includes features such as Comfort Access which allows keyless entry to the vehicle and remote opening of the tailgate and a 12-speaker 500W digitally amplified harman/kardon surround sound system.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe comes with a five year warranty and road side assistance as standard, as well as three year scheduled servicing.
