If you’re one to avoid the mainstream trends, you likely find the BMW 3 Series a bit too commonplace. Fortunately, BMW is offering the new 4 Series Gran Coupe, a four-door, hatchback version of the 4 Series coupe based on a 3 Series sedan.
A very unique vehicle that combines the best of the 4 Series Coupe and 3 Series Sedan, the truth is that no matter it’s body style, name and platform, it’s a nice alternative to new car buyers that are looking for something different.
The 4 Series Gran Coupe is a touch wider and longer than the 3 Series, but more than an inch lower. That stance along with the frameless doors gives the 4 Series a subtle, yet sportier and unique appearance when compared to the 3. I like the athletic look, which is accentuated by the optional 19-inch wheels outfitted to our car. The 4 Series comes standard with 17-inch wheels, while opting for any of the “line” trims trades those out for 18-inch alloys. Further enhancing the look are the gills that are found on the body of the car just behind the front wheel wells.
