Slide-in range replacement - depth question

last month

My current range is a slide-in and seems to be on it's last leg. I'm hoping someone could give me some advice about replacing it. Between the depth of the oven and the granite behind it, it doesn't seem like it's going to be able to support a wide variety of options.

From the back of the counter to the front, not including the backsplash is only 24".

I want to replace it with induction. Specifically I'm interested in the Bosch Benchmark or the Cafe Double Oven. Both are slightly less than 26" from front to back not including the handles. The Cafe sits at 29-1/2 in overall, and the Bosch is 28 7/8 in. In short, they're both significantly longer than what we have now.

My question is, does that mean I need to modify the countertop to remove the granite behind it? Or do I just need to be looking for other smaller options? Thanks for any advice you can give.
