The grille is the same size as before, and on this tester, at least, it had an identical pattern. We can see that the side vents and trim in the front bumper look the same as before, and the same goes for the lower section, albeit the part between the integrated apron and the grille appears slightly different. One thing that is new, however, is the headlamp pattern. The camo makes it tricky to tell if they messed around with the shape, too, but it doesn't seem like they did.
For the most part, the back end of the facelifted 4er GC looks about the same. The reflectors were placed in the same position, the double tailpipes do not seem to have been updated, and the license plate holder still sits in the middle of the trunk lid. Nonetheless, there are a few key upgrades here, like the taillights, which clearly have different graphics, and the bumper and diffuser, which look a bit cleaner. The trunk lid spoiler sends M Sport vibes, and we are otherwise looking at a nicely equipped model that also features a sunroof, among others.
Inside, the 4er GC should get a curved display mixing the 14.9-inch infotainment system and 12.3-inch digital dials. A minimalist gear selector might be part of the mid-cycle updates, alongside a new steering wheel and maybe fresh trim and upholstery.
The powertrain options remain unconfirmed, but we can expect the facelifted BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe to soldier on with the same units. In the United States, these include the 2.0-liter turbo'd unit pumping out 255 hp (259 ps/190 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque in the 430i and 430i xDrive, and the 382-horsepower (287 ps/285 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) 3.0-liter six-pot found on the M440i and M440i xDrive models. They're joined by the battery-electric i4. There is no full-blown M variant of the 4er GC, and BMW won't launch one for the mid-cycle refresh, which is otherwise expected to start arriving in showrooms in the United States sometime next year.
