BMW Reveals 4 Series Gran Coupé

BMW has just revealed its new 4 Series Gran Coupé ahead of its debut next month in Geneva. The car is the first four-door coupé in the premium midsize class for the German manufacturer, and is the third model to join the 4 series. It combines the sleek look of a two-door coupé with the ease and robust size offered with regular four-door vehicles. With the same dimensions as its two-door counterpart, the car truly is a sleek rendition of a more functional and spacious ride. Available in four and six cylinder petrol engines, as well as two four-cylinder diesel engines, the sporty coupé offers quite a range of customizable options. More details on a release date will be available after its launch next month.
