Making its U.S. debut a the 2014 New York Auto Show is the 4-Series Gran Coupe. The now familiar Gran Coupe moniker means this is a 4-door sedan but with a sloping coupe like silhouette.

Last year, BMW first introduced the world to the BMW Concept X5 eDrive and now the “concept” vehicle is visiting the New York Autoshow. This is by far one of the more interesting prospects for BMW in the realm of electrified vehicles, especially from the POV of people who can’t yet make the full leap to the BMWi vehicles. The X5 is powered by a combination of a BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder combustion engine and a 95-horsepower electric motor. This results in an average MPG of 62 and CO2 emissions of less then 90 grams per kilometer. The BMW Concept X5 eDrive obtains its electrical energy from a (lithium-ion) high-voltage battery, which is accommodated under the flat luggage compartment floor. The X5 eDrive can be driven in 3 modes. In the fully electric mode, a maximum range of 19 miles is possible – at speeds of up to 75 mph.

While the M4 stands out with its sleek design and highly attractive roofline, the F80 M3 is shaping up to be one of the best looking and balanced-designs in the current BMW lineup. While the previous E90 M3 sold in less quantities than the E92 M3 Coupe, this time around, the odds might be in sedan’s favor

. The F80 M3 stands out with its rear-end and the purposeful rear wheel arches. Since it starts on a smaller track (the F30), the F80 M3 has a width of 1877 mm versus 1870 mm for the M4, and furthermore, the rear-end features a wider bodykit to bring it to the same dimensions as the M4.

2014 NYIAS: BMW 228i with Track Handling Package

The BMW 228i Coupe with Track Handling Package Woodcliff Lake, NJ – April 14, 2014. . . BMW announced today the availability of the all-new Track Handling Package for the 2015 BMW 228i Coupe. Inspired by the original formula of BMW “S-package” vehicles manufactured in the course of the past three decades, the new Track Handling Package embraces the desires of the most enthusiastic BMW drivers. It includes the M Adaptive Suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on unique 18-inch light-alloy wheels , Variable Sport Steering, and M Sport Brakes. The package will be available from July 2014 (production) for both 6-speed manual and 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission-equipped BMW 228i Coupe models. The Track Handling Package may be added to any 228i Coupe during the vehicle ordering process. Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date. A chassis that speaks to its driver: Adaptive M Suspension. With a starting stance 10 millimeters lower than the suspension of a standard BMW 228i Coupe, lowering the car’s center of gravity, the Adaptive M Suspension adds front axle and central accelerometers. These sensors gather data instantaneously and, when combined with data from the existing steering angle sensor, throttle position, and brake pressure sensors, form a comprehensive real-time profile of damping needs at all four corners to effectively read and adapt to the road. The valves of the dampers adapt in milliseconds to the conditions of the road and the wishes of the driver, minimizing vehicle squat, dive, and roll, to ensure the BMW 228i Coupe feels equally at home on a smooth canyon road, unusually rough surfaces, or during the daily commute. The desired suspension setting can be selected using the Driving Dynamics Control switch in the center console. BMW Variable Sport Steering. Long suggested to be part of the mythical “Bavarian black magic” of balanced vehicle handling, BMW Variable Sport Steering employs a mechanical steering rack with a directness ratio that varies in a prescribed way throughout its range of travel. At steering angles near center (for example, when driving straight ahead), the ratio is slower, providing maximum vehicle stability for highway speeds and straight-aways. As the driver bends the car into a corner, the mechanical ratio of the steering rack becomes faster and provides the driver with precise, lightning-quick response for mid-corner adjustments to “the line.” At extreme steering angles such as those required to negotiate a hairpin turn or during “opposite lock” maneuvers, the ratio is quickest. M Sport Brakes system. The M Sport Brakes system features fixed, four-piston calipers at the front axle and two-piston calipers at rear, with particularly large brake discs (front disc diameter 13.4 inch, rear 13.6 in. ). The calipers are painted dark blue and carry the M logo at the front axle. Brake pads chosen for sharp responsiveness, long term thermal stability and linear pedal feel on the street are fitted at all four corners. In exchange, enthusiast customers likely won’t mind that the pads of the M Sport Brakes emit slightly more dust under heavy use than the standard 228i Coupe brake pads. Race-derived tire technology. Ultra-high performance, non-run-flat Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, similar to those featured on the BMW M235i Coupe, are also included with the Track Handling Package. Developed with technology transferred directly from years of world championship-level sports car racing in Europe and the United States, they provide superb feedback and the ideal balance between agility and stability. The Pilot Super Sport design places top priority on giving the BMW driver massive grip in both wet and dry conditions. Wider rear tires are used as an additional traction improvement measure. A BMW Mobility Kit is featured as standard equipment, as is 24-hour BMW Roadside Assistance for the first four years of vehicle service. Source: BMW 228i Coupe with Track Handling Package
