The 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe has been revealed ahead of an Australian arrival in the fourth quarter of this year.

Dimensionally, the Gran Coupe measures 4783mm in length, 1852mm in width and 1442mm in height. For context, it’s 143mm longer, 27mm wider and 53mm than the old model.

BMW claims a 0-100km/h sprint time of 7.9 seconds for the 420i and 6.2 seconds for the 430i.
The range-topping M440i xDrive gets a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six developing 285kW and 500Nm, it’s matched to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. BMW says it will hit triple figures from rest in 4.7 seconds.
All models will use BMW’s Operating System 7.0 infotainment set-up consisting of a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen. The system features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The brand’s Remote Software Upgrade tech is also standard, it enables improved vehicle functions, the ability to update the vehicle software and additional digital services to be imported over the air.
