BMW Reveals All-New 2022 4 Series Gran Coupe

4 Series gets more doors, keeps coupe roof

  • The four-door 4 Series is back and bigger than ever

  • New Gran Coupe carries over standard car’s styling


An all-new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has just been revealed. As usual for the formula, it turns the 4 back into a 3, but with a more stylish roofline and the addition of a hatchback rear.

The new Gran Coupe version of the 4er is nearly six inches longer than the model it replaces as well as 2.1 inches taller, all of which should translate into more room in the cabin for occupants.

Yes, it gets the same full-height grilles that the 3 and the standard 4 Series wear, and the whole vehicle looks much like BMW‘s i4 electric. Which isn’t a surprise since they are largely the same. The new body panels make extensive use of aluminum, helping make the larger car lighter than the one it replaces.

Inside is once again the 4 Series but with more space in the back and that extra door panel. The cabin is intended to cocoon the driver, BMW says, with features like the soft knee pads on the M and M Sport versions of the 2022 4 Series Gran Coupe adding to the coziness.

The engines offered are a 2.0L four and 3.0L inline-six, both turbocharged and with a mild hybrid system for the M440i xDrive’s six. 255 hp and 295 lb-ft for the four and 382 hp with 369 lb-ft for the six with the 48V mild hybrid adding 11 hp and allowing more fuel-off driving. All models come with an eight-speed automatic.

Most of the 4 Series chassis options are available including lift-related shocks that respond differently to different sized bumps. Adaptive M suspension is also on the list as is variable sport steering.

The 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is set to go on sale this fall. US pricing starts from $44,800 with Canadian pricing to follow.
