Thanks to Austrian website Autofilou (via Jalopnik), we now have our first look at what appears to be the upcoming BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe – the four-door version of the new 4 Series coupe, which itself is based on the 3 Series sedan. Makes total sense, right?

Nevertheless, in our First Drive of the 4 Series coupe, we found it to be a much more engaging experience than the 3 Series on which its based. And if this new 4GC follows in those footsteps, it could prove to be a better 3 Series sedan than, well, the 3 Series sedan.

Expect the 4 Series Gran Coupe to come in 428i and 435i flavors, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four in the base car and a 3.0-liter turbo-six in the higher-end model. Of course, BMW will likely bring a range-topping M4 Gran Coupe to market not long thereafter.

So, to recap, with the launch of the 4GC, we'll now have the 3 Series in sedan, wagon and Gran Turismo forms, and the 4 Series in coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe body styles. There will literally be something for everyone, whether it makes sense or not.
