Bamoo unveiled the second generation of the 4 Series Grand Coupe. Launched in the US market in August, this generation is 14.9 cm taller, 2.5 cm wider and 5.3 cm taller than the previous generation. According to the Bavarians, this generation has experienced significant improvements in terms of interior, propulsion, equipment and handling. The car is scheduled to be available in the US in 4 trim 430i and M440i.
The 430i Grand Coupe is powered by a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine capable of producing 255 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. The power output of this engine is directed to the wheels through an 8-speed gearbox. Relying on this powertrain, the 430i Grand Coupe is capable of reaching a top speed of 96 km / h in 5.8 seconds.
Under the hood of the M440i xDrive Grand Coupe, a 3-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine operates. The engine, in conjunction with the 48-volt system, produces 382 horsepower and 499 Nm of torque and drives the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This more powerful trim achieves acceleration from zero to 96 km / h in 4.4 seconds.
The Bavarian automaker has promised that the new 4 Series Grand Coupe will be superior to the previous generation in terms of handling due to factors such as greater rear axle width, 50-50 weight distribution, lower center of gravity and better engineering of the assistants.
Of the two trims, the M440i xDrive trim comes with the M Sport differential as standard, but this feature is available as an option for the 430i, and if anyone is interested, they should order the Dynamic Handling Package option.
The new generation 4 Series Grand Coupe has a wealth of safety equipment and facilities, some of which are standard and some of which are optional. Some of these equipments include speed limit assistant, active cruise control with stop and restart capability, front collision warning, city collision avoidance system with automatic braking, rear traffic warning, lane departure warning, point detection Blind and car preparation system for rear impact!
If you order the Driving Assistant Professional package, other features such as traffic assistant with limited access on the highway, active lane keeping assistant and car viewing assistant through the steering wheel display will be added to the 4 Series Grand Coupe.
All 2022 Grand Coupe 4 Series models will be sold with Bamoo digital key and the ability to support software updates remotely. The 430i starts at $ 44,800 (plus $ 995 shipping costs) and the M440i xDrive starts at $ 58,000 (plus $ 995 shipping costs).
