As you may know already, Audi has the A5 Sportback compact four-door coupe, Mercedes-Benz is working hard on the CLA, previewed by the CSC Concept, but what about Bmw? Well , it appears that the Bavarian manufacturer is also working hard on the 4-Series Grand Coupe, which will take on the other German rivals.
Why 4-Series? For those who don’t know, the 3-Series Coupe and Convertible will carry the 4-Series badge when they will be unveiled later this year. So, the new car will join the new lineup, while the design will be inspired by the new 4-Series Coupe, according to AutoExpress. That’s right, the 4-Series Coupe will get two extra doors and will become the 4-Series Gran Coupe.
Just like the 6-Series Gran Coupe is based on the 6-Series Coupe. The front end of the 4-Series Gran Coupe will be the same seen on the 2012 Bmw 3-Series Sedan (F30).
Engine choices, will be the same as for the Coupe and Convertible. An M4 Gran Coupe is also expected, and it is likely to join the M3 Saloon, M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible in 2014. These models will use a six-cylinder turbo delivering around 450 hp.
