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