If a BMW 4 Series is sold in Germany, 60 percent of all cases are four-door. The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has established itself as a bestseller within the series even before the facelift and has fulfilled the expectations that the Munich-based company had placed in the third body variant from the start. The classic coupe with two doors only has a market share of 15 percent in Germany, which of course is also due to the price: The two additional doors and the associated advantages in everyday life do not cost a single cent anymore, which is why many coupe buyers end up buying BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe lands.
The four-door BMW 4 Series is by far the most popular version worldwide, too, although the Gran Coupe “only” accounts for 50 percent of sales figures when viewed globally. With the 2017 BMW 4 Series Facelift, the four-door coupe will also be upgraded and brought up to the latest technological standards. New photos show the F36 LCI with Sport Line and of course the adaptive LED headlights, which contribute significantly to the fresher look of the visually discreetly redesigned 4-series.
Glossy black inserts for the front and rear apron, black exterior mirrors and a few other dark details from the kidney struts to the air breather trims characterize the design of the Sport Line. The photos also show the 19-inch star spoke 407 light alloy wheels in the bicolour version with elements in orbit gray, which are optionally available for all 4-series with Sport Line.
Just like the Coupe, the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe will also receive a number of technical updates with the 2017 facelift, which should ensure even more driving pleasure. The basic set-up of all the suspensions on offer is tighter than before and therefore scores with sporty drivers with reduced rolling behavior. The more precisely coordinated steering and the adjusted characteristics of DSC and ABS should also contribute to driving pleasure.
As the 440i, the Gran Coupe is powered by the 326 hp in-line six-cylinder B58. Unlike the two-door coupe, the BMW 440i Gran Coupe is only available with a ZF eight-speed automatic, the manual six-speed gearbox is reserved for the two-door model. With the automatic it is possible to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h within 5.1 seconds. The 440i xDrive even manages the exercise in a smooth 5.0 seconds.
