While we’ve seen camouflaged testers of the upcoming BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe before, this one is wearing the Bavarian firm’s usually tasty M Sport package, which in some markets at least, will be offered as one of the available trim grades, probably at a similar cost as on the 4-Series Coupe ($3,500 in the U.S.).
With this example finished in one of the traditional M Sport colors dubbed Estoril Blue, the kit contains M-specific front and rear bumpers, the latter fitted with a black diffuser of sorts, side skirts, different wheels and black finish for the window trims.
We can’t see it from these pictures, but the M Sport models will also get sportier front seats, M-specific steering wheel and gearshift knob for manual models, plus several other unique trim items, and a lowered and tighter sports suspension.
Positioned in BMW’s range as an alternative for those looking for a sportier looking 3-Series Sedan or a more practical and roomier four-door 4-Series Coupe, the Gran Coupe will have a curved roofline and frameless doors, while riding on the same extended wheelbase (2,920mm) as the 3-Series GT (Gran Turismo) and the China market 3-Series LWB.
The entire engine range will mirror that of the 3-Series and 4-Series models with both diesel and gasoline units on offer. We could see an M4 Gran Coupe as well.
