2014 NYIAS: BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe

2014 NYIAS: BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe
139
COMMENTS

Making its U.S. debut a the 2014 New York Auto Show is the 4-Series Gran Coupe. The now familiar Gran Coupe moniker means this is a 4-door sedan but with a sloping coupe like silhouette.

This is the first time BMW has attempted this formula in the small/mid-size luxury sedan format, but it does come across pretty nicely.

Prices in the U.S. will start at a base MSRP of:
$41,225, including $925 Destination & Handling for the 428i Gran Coupe,
$43,225, including Destination & Handling, for the 428i xDrive Gran Coupe, and
$46,725, including $925 Destination & Handling for the 435i Gran Coupe.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) North American Premiere

I think they're diluting the gene pool. Don't get me wrong, I love the lines of the coupe and sedan, but now we're combining them (Gran Coupe) and even offering another variation (Gran Turismo). Feels like they've thrown two great cars into a blender to see how many different combinations they can come up with. All that being said, I do like the look of this, yet another 3/4 series.

Looking good in dark color.

I'm used to coupes and their long doors and windows, and when i see this car, the driver's head seems to be right next to the B pillar...

Still cant get past the rear of the car! I was hoping for a smaller 6GC not a slightly different 3 series GT.

Kinda stupid. They're stretching these model lines out too thin.

What's that black plate in the middle section of front bumper opening? For a license plate? Or is it some camera gadgetry?

Beautiful.

But, I look at that hatch and I can't help but fear the potential for squeaks as the car ages. Only time will tell...

Imperial blu is an awesome color!!!


But dont buy it...

...because it will only stay so cool if you all keep buying EBII...
Who wants to see IB everywhere?

No one , and you know i am right...

And plus this is such an old person color...

Anyways, this is a cool car i knew it from the start with no doubts...

The gorgeous 6-series Gran Coupe besides it shows the world what the 4-series Gran Coupe should have looked like. But instead, the 4GC looks like the grandma's car.
