BMW has finally joined the “four door coupe” party which was started by Mercedes-Benz with the CLS back in 2004. The Bavarian manufacturer’s four door coupe is called the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and is based on the 6 Series coupe that has been stretched and gets an added pair of doors.
From the front and back, the Gran Coupe looks identical to the 6 Series coupe. Obviously the side profile is different and looks a lot better than the coupe in my opinion. The Gran Coupe is 4.4 inches longer than its 2-door sibling; most of the added length benefits the rear passengers. BMW classifies the 6 Series Gran Coupe as “4 + 1”, I’m assuming this means the car can seat four people comfortably and an extra person can be seated in “emergency” situations.
