Were you one of the haters of the BMW’s series 3 sedans? We could understand why, this year however the German mogul brand has decided to make some minor adjustments in its series 4 Gran Coupe line and believe it or not the impact is way better than expected.
Here are some of the highlights of the review:
- The 4-Series Gran Coupe range mirrors the regular Coupe range. Prices start at the same $70,000 plus on-road costs for the base 420i petrol, graduating to the $72,300 420d diesel and $81,000 428i petrol, all available with the same choice of ‘Sport Line’, ‘Modern Line’ or ‘Luxury Line’ trims.
- All models are well equipped, getting a sat nav/infotainment system, leather trim, dual-zone climate control, power front seats, power tailgate, 18-inch alloys and eight-speed auto.
- The topline Gran Coupe runs BMW’s familiar 3.0-litre turbo six-cylinder petrol/eight-speed auto combo. It’s not inordinately powerful or torquey but it dusts most obvious six-cylinder alternatives for pace (0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds) and thrift (7.6L/100km). A lean 1545kg kerb weight helps its cause
