Verdict 7.0 / 10

Lots of mores with the 4 Series Gran Coupe; more stylish, more practical and, yes, more expensive, but then it comes with more equipment as standard to compensate. Not as visually distinct from its 3 Series relative as the similar in concept Audi A5 Sportback is over the A4, but even so the 4 Series Gran Coupe is still a very appealing choice in that busy premium, sports saloon marketplace. If you want everything, it’s got most bases covered, but it’s pricing does mean you could have a newer, bigger 5 Series for much the same money.
