The cockpit of the Gran Coupé is also identical to that of the other 4 Series models. This means the infotainment system is also at the forefront of BMW with a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, which is still supported by a rotating push-button start. The graphic of the user interface also corresponds to that of the model series siblings: the tile optics for infotainment and the BMW machete for the virtual cockpit. This also includes a head-up display with a display surface that has been increased by 70 percent, so the driver can adjust the displays as needed.

At BMW, “Always On” also means that updates can be run wirelessly in the car. And the Gran Coupé doesn’t lag behind its brethren when it comes to self-driving functionality, too. In the event of a traffic jam on the motorway, the Gran Coupé is also directed by autopilot to the edge of the lane in order to create an emergency lane.
