A few days ago BMW announced the 4 Series Gran Coupe

Source for more pictures. What do you all think of it? I think it's very similar to the 3GT - this version does have a roof line that's more restricted at the back for taller passengers. I think it's a nice looking car with plenty of practicality, given the hatch. I would definitely choose this over a 3 series - I would get rid of my car for a M4 GC.

I don't imagine that it'll be similar to the 3GT in the flesh. The 3GT has a very tall roofline, it was almost like a mini SUV when I saw it at a dealership. The 4GC has a lower roofline than the normal 3er.

If Audi had a competitor for this, it would have been called A4 Sportback. But I guess A5 Sportback already competes with it head-to-head.

I think it's redundant.

 

It's being positioned as a sleeker version of the 3-series sedan. To each their own, but the new 3-series sedan is already sleek enough for me.

 

I can understand 3-series GT. It's got a higher road clearance and a much more elegant rear compared to 3-series Touring.

 

I suppose 4-series GC is following in the footsteps of 6-series GC as its smaller and younger sibling.

Dammit BMW! stop making your linup so damn confusing!! it looks like a 3 series, except it isn't...I thought the 4 series were the 2 door variants of the 3 series and now they throw a 5 door (that looks like a normal 4 door 3 series) in the mix  :s please excuse me while my brain explodes  :laugh:  :rofl:

if you look on their main website, each series now has an SUV.

 

so the 5 series has a car, the x5 and m series.

same for the one series, 6 series.

only a matter of time for an x7, x4.

Fabulous looking car, the clamshell bonnet, side sculptures, sleek C pillar, BMW have imo really nailed the design on this one. Edgy where it needs to be yet smooth at the same time. I can see this being a bit hit if the price isn`t to stupid compared with a 3-series, i`d imagine they have a common chasis.

Wonder why the white one has a different lower front grill/fog lights enclosure!

Pretty nice. I would like to see the interior as this for me is the one thing that let BMW's down.

It's going to be the same as every other BMW interior of the current generation.

Nope, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is 0.6 inches longer, 0.6 inches wider, 1.6 inches shorter than a F30 335i (current generation 3 series sedan).

I think BMW is cluttering the line up. In my world, I'd rebrand the 4GC to be the 3 Series sedan, and get rid of the 3GT all together. Audi/Mercedes are also guilty of cluttered line ups. As much as I like having choices, I think it's a waste of R&D + marketing + other resources these companies are putting in.
