2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe features detailed: Audi A5 Sportback rival commits to controversial front-end styling

The 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe differs in body style to its coupe, but the engines available are the same.

BMW Australia will roll-out its new 4 Series Gran Coupe before the end of the year, available across three different flavours each sporting the polarising nose of its coupe counterpart.

The trio of variants are available, the 420i, 430i and top-spec M440i xDrive, mirror the 4 Series coupe, but BMW Australia is yet to reveal pricing for each grade.

The base 420i and mid-tier 430i are powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine, producing 135kW/300Nm and 190kW/400Nm respectively, with drive sent to the rear wheels.

The M440i meanwhile, ups the ante to 285kW/500Nm thanks to a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six-cylinder petrol engine, and also scores BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

Regardless of engine, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is fitted with an eight-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Standard equipment includes LED headlights, darkened LED tail-lights, front sports seats, leather interior, multi-function steering wheel, variable sports steering, 19-inch wheels and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Handling multimedia duties is a 10.25-inch multimedia screen, powered by BMW’s Operating System 7 and sporting features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, satellite navigation, and voice and gesture commands.

Like the coupe, an M Sport package will also be standard across the 4 Series Gran Coupe range in Australia, which includes sportier elements on the front and rear bumper, and side skirts.

The 430i and M440i meanwhile, score Adaptive M suspension and M Sport brakes.

Standard safety includes lane departure warning, lane change assist, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and a reversing camera.

Aside from the addition of two rear doors, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is also differentiated from its coupe sibling and 3 Series cousin with flush door handles and unique lower rear bumper apron.

Measuring 4783mm long, 1852mm wide, 1442mm tall and with a 2856mm wheelbase the second-generation 4 Series Gran Coupe is larger in all dimensions than its predecessor, while the final dimension is also 5mm longer than that of the current 3 Series sedan.

The boot will swallow 470 litres of volume, expanding to 1290L with the 40:20:40 rear seats folded.

For reference, the 4 Series coupe line-up starts at $71,900 before on-road costs for the 420i, moves up to $90,900 for the 430i and tops out at $118,900 for the M440i, so expect the Gran Coupe range to sit a little above the two-door.
