WOODCLIFF LAKE, New Jersey The new 2015 BMW 428i Gran Coupe will start at $41,225, including a $925 destination charge, when it arrives in U.S. showrooms in the spring.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, an addition to the 4 Series lineup, will make its world debut at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show in March and its U.S. debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show in April. Even though it is called a "coupe," the car has four doors.

U.S. buyers of the 4 Series Gran Coupe will get two engine choices. The 428i Gran Coupe will feature the 240-horsepower TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the 435i Gran Coupe will be equipped with the 300-hp TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine.

All models will be equipped with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission. The six-speed manual transmission and a diesel-engine version of the car will not be available in the U.S., according to Dave Buchko, a BMW spokesman.

U.S. buyers can beef up the 4 Series Gran Coupe with special lines: Sport, Luxury and the M Sport package. The "Modern" line, which is available in Europe, will not be offered here.

The M Sport package adds aerodynamic features like a large air intake, diffuser insert in the rear bumper and rocker panel, and a choice of six exterior colors, including Carbon Black Metallic, which is available for the first time on any 4 Series.

Other details on the package include an M Sport suspension and optional M Sport brakes with calipers in contrasting blue paint finish.

The Luxury line adds bright chrome accents inside and out, along with premium leather in the cabin, including the new Ivory White that is exclusive to the 4 Series Gran Coupe.

The Sport line features exterior touches in a high-gloss black finish and an optional Coral Red Dakota leather interior with a red lower dashboard.

Pricing has not been announced on any of the packages, Buchko said.

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe competes with the Audi A4, Cadillac ATS and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Edmunds says: BMW is pitching the 4 Series Gran Coupe to car shoppers as an emotional and sporty choice in the BMW lineup.

    Ok, I see what they did there. It's a sloping hatchback kind of like an A7.

    A four door compact BMW, so it's a 3series then.

    I don't really see the difference or market differentiation need vs. an equivalent 3 series sedan ......and didn't they just get done telling us that odd number designations are for four doors and even number designations are for 2 doors cars? Jeez BMW make up your minds.

    Not bad looking at all. This begs the question, however, why didn't they release this as the 3 series? To sell 4 series sedans and up-price the sleeker 4 gran-coupé sedan? Though I have no objections to the simpler 320i

    I for one seriously doubt that this Gran coupe business is anything more than a gimmick to drive buyers upmarket from the Three-Series. It might work, but perhaps at the expense of Five-Series sales.

  • Just, well, stupid. Unless the design is differentiated from the 3 a good amount, why bother?

    That's it, I'm giving up on going along with BMW's naming scheme. As far as I'm concerned, their small-midsize cars will be the 3-series, including the M3, regardless of how many doors it has and regardless of if the top goes up and down. If they won't be consistent, I won't respect this silly naming strategy. Just like the Dodge Viper (which I refuse to call an SRT Viper for the same reason) this is apparently all the result of make-busy-work on the part of the marketing department.

    I am sorry, but every BMW seems to look like every other BMW. You cannot (at least I cannot) easily distinguish between a 3 series, a 5 series or a 7 series any more. They don't look *bad*, just similar in an anonymously-okay-looking-car way...

    yes, the naming is a bit odd, but I like the idea of a 4-dr hatch variant of the 3 series, whatever they call it. Also, looks much better than the 3 series sedan with the frameless doors. The way they do the doors on the 3 series sedan looks terrible and cheap, especially when combined with the black trim. 4 series execution is much neater, and more appropriate for the prices BMW charges.

    This move just makes the 3 Series the "frump" in the line up. Although I do very much like the "hatchback thang" of the 4 Series Gran Coupe, this is really a 5 door hatch, not a "coupe" in any meaningful sense of the word.
