BMW has recently introduced the second-generation 4-Series Gran Coupe, which will be on sale in the United States in August. The Australian launch will take place in the fourth quarter of 2021 as well.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe 2022 will be available with four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

The 420i has a 300Nm 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 181 horsepower and 300Nm of torque, while the 430i has an upgraded 2.0-litre four-pot with 254 horsepower and 400 nm of torque. The worldwide line-up is led by the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six-powered M440i xDrive, with Australian vehicles producing 382 horsepower and 500Nm of torque. There will also be a 48-volt mild-hybrid variant with 368 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque for the European market.

All engines are mated to eight-speed 'Steptronic Sport' automatic transmissions with paddle shifters, which transfer power to the rear wheels in the 420i and 430i and all-wheel drive in the M440i xDrive. An M Sport exhaust system is standard on the M440i.

The 430i and M440i both include launch control, as does the M440i xDrive. Gran Coupe also has a Sprint mode for quick bursts of mid-range acceleration.

Track widths have been expanded by 50mm in the front and 29mm in the back to 1595mm and 1623mm, respectively, to help handling and mid-corner stability, and BMW claims that the new 4-Series Gran Coupe will handle better than its predecessor.

The M440i xDrive Gran Coupe also includes an M Sport differential, which can be fitted to the 430i Gran Coupe via the Dynamic Handling Package.
