2015 BMW 428 Gran Coupe Exterior

2015 BMW 428 Gran Coupe Overview (See Available Styles)

New/Notable:
  • Sedan version of the 4-Series is a new model for 2015
  • 240-hp, turbocharged four-cylinder engine
  • Expressive front styling, four-door convenience
BMW adds another model to its expansive lineup for 2015, the 428 Gran Coupe.

While the 4-Series was ostensibly introduced to separate the two-door variants of the 3-Series into their own line, the 4-Series has grown to include a pair of four-door sedan models (even though they’re called “Gran Coupe”) of its own. Up front, the styling is the same as is found on 428 coupe and convertible models, but as you move back the extra pair of doors moves the roofline higher. It still flows backward in a “fastback-esque” fashion and culminates in the short rear deck lid, almost like a subtler version of the of the 328 Gran Turismo. 17-inch alloy wheels are standard, along with xenon adaptive headlights with LED accents.

Under the hood, the 428 Gran Coupe features a 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can be found up and down BMW’s lineup, from the tiny 2-Series up to the larger 5-Series. It is a proven mill, one that we’ve thought always punched above its weight when it comes to performance. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission; the 428 Gran Coupe is offered in rear- and all-wheel drive versions. Fuel economy ratings haven’t been released as of this writing, but BMW says they should mirror regular versions of the 428, which gets 23/35 mpg city/highway in rear-wheel drive configuration.

While the five-seat 428 Gran Coupe shares the same wheelbase and length/width as the two-door model, added height improves headroom for all passengers and expands interior passenger volume. There are still plenty of standard features; HD radio, Bluetooth connectivity, powered front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push button start, a power moonroof, and iDrive with a 6.5-inch center touch screen come on all models. Heated front and rear seats are optional, along with satellite radio, navigation, a Harmon Kardon surround sound speaker system, and a Head-Up display.

Beyond the federally mandated antilock brakes and electronic stability system, the 2015 428 Gran Coupe also offers eight airbags, BMW assists emergency communications with a 10-year subscription, and a Front/Rear head protection system. There are also plenty of optional safety technologies, including a surround view camera system, blind spot warning system, front/rear parking sensors, and automatic high-beams.
