What’s Different About the 2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe?
The secret is out! Now almost all relevant automotive websites and blogs are displaying pictures of the 2015 BMW 4-Series Coupe. While many are impressed, the general question is: what’s different about this supposedly last model for the 4-Series line? The argument is that the new 4-Series Gran Coupe is almost identical to the 3-Series Coupe so where is the upgrade?
BMW had announced the debut of this vehicle would be at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show but anticipation and excitement got the best of some of us and a few pictures were leaked. Additionally, there is a wealth of information available on the “new” features of the 2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe.
So to start with the specifications that make it different, drivers have a wide range of engine types to choose from, spreading across diesel and petrol. According to WorldCarFans.com the engine variety includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine which metes out 141 bhp and 181 bhp. This is followed by a 2.0-liter petrol engine which metes out 181 bhp and 240 bhp and the 3.0-liter six-cylinder petrol engine metes out 300bhp and 300 pound-feet of torque.
The cynics among us complain that the engine variety in this new BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is the same for all 4-Series model so there wasn’t any great attempt to widen the powertrain options. But one thing is certain, test drivers of the new 428i Gran Coupe are completely impressed by the power capacity of this roadster.
There may be a reason for BMW’s consistency with the Sedan/Coupe style. The new vehicle which sports a cute hatchback is quite spacious inside. Additionally, the interior leather-covered dashboard and seats gives the car a classy appeal. There is no second-guessing that it is a luxury car and this is a quality that cannot be compromised in BMW models whether they are 3or 4-Series.
Yes, it can be agreed that maybe BMW could have pushed its limits further to see if the road machine could handle even further enhancements to its powertrain and styling but we will never know what BMW has up its sleeve for the coming months.
