BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe leaked official photo

An official announcement is imminent

Additional leaked official images of the 2014 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe have hit the web ahead of a very possible online reveal this weekend.

While between the 5-Series sedan and the 6-Series Gran Coupe there are some changes justifying two distinct models, we can't say the same thing about the 3-Series sedan and 4-Series Gran Coupe duo since the cars look very much alike. Except for the slightly more sloped roofline and mildly modified bumpers, the 4-Series Gran Coupe is pretty much a copy of the 3-Series sedan.

It will probably have the same 2810mm wheelbase and will allegedly feature frameless doors while the height will decrease by 7mm. Expect the curb weight to increase by 100 kg (220 lbs) as a result of adding the rear doors which will make the car around 5,000 GBP (about 8,200 USD or 6,000 EUR) more expensive than the 3-Series sedan.

A public debut is very probable to occur in early March at the 84th edition of the Geneva Motor Show.

I understood the 4 series' existence as bmw had always developed 3er coupes independently of the sedans, but up charging 8-9K for aesthetic alterations of a 3er seems a bit disingenuous. This is what the 3 should have been anyways.

By the way, the price difference between the two is more like $2500 - $3100 in the united states. That's to say if you like a lift back more than the M or sport package it's pretty much a wash. Considering that I have to back off of my earlier comment.

So let me see, now we have the 3-series sedan, the 3-series GT and the "4-series" Gran Coupé, all of them looking exactly the same?

As a fan of BMWs and as an owner, I must say this vehicle looks okay but had the potential to look so much more aggressive and athletic. This looks more like a sport back rather than the design of the 6GC, which I would have preferred.

Wow! Incredibly hard to separate it from the 3er. Nice job lol!

Lower on the practicality scale for sure but in my opinion looks good. I am not a fan at all of the current 3 series or the GT or the 4 series. One thing they do have in common, aside from a geneology that too closely mimics the other, is an awkwardness in the design at certain angles and in the 4 GC they reconcile it the best. Problem is the 4 GC is supposed to be the style maven but it comes to the party where the same off the rack threads as everyone else.

It'll probably look slimmer and more coupe like in person, the problem is the 4-series is still a 3-series with a different number on it. The 5 and 6-series may ride on the same frame but they look nothing alike, BMW did not seperate the 3-series from the 4-series at all. So why buy the 4 GC, it'll have less headroom and one less seat in the back, I'd buy a 3GT before I'd buy this. A 2-series Gran Coupe would make more sense and could compete with the Mercedes CLA.

First I disliked exterior 3-series sedan F-30. Gran Turismo is worse than it was. 4-series didn't impress me at all. Gran Coupe was the last hope. But it's look isn't excellent at all.

it's not bad (duh it's BMW) but BMM could really confuse customers with this model it seems to stand for its own niche still doesn't stand out from the crowd as much as its siblings

While this does look good, I'm struggling to find out why it exists. Surely it's going to cut into the sales of the 3 series saloon? At least with the 6 Series Gran Coupe and 5 Series there is enough of a difference, in this case I'm not sure.

alot of it probably have to do with greed. If they can slightly enlarge a 3 series (using the same chassis, engine, design, interior, etc...)and charge suckers alot more $$$, why wouldnt they?

6 series GC looks awesome on pics, and even better on road, but I'm not sure here. It doesnt' look that much more sporty than 3. I'd rather get a coupe or 5 series if I needed rear doors really badly.
