Transmission, Engine, and Performance
The BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe’s 2 turbocharged engines offer more than sufficient gumption for spirited driving and the 8 speed automated transmission handles gear alteration with aplomb.
Purchasers have the option of rear or complete wheel setups. Wearing the BMW 430i name on its shapely rear end, the test car was powered by a 248 horsepower turbocharged 2liter 4 cylinder engine. Sprinting up from 0-60mph in brick just 5.1 seconds, turbo 4 pulls strongly, runs cleanly, and allows a muted burble that is appropriate for BMW Gran Coupe’s sporty appearance.
About Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Though the 430i’s EPA estimates are on par its opponents, the more energetic 6-cylinder 440i version trounces V-six powered rivals such as Kia Stinger GT and the Buick Regal GS when it comes to conserving fuel.
Infotainment and Interior
Boasting a host of lavish features, a driver-focused cockpit, and very rich materials throughout, the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe’s cabin feels a bit more upscale. The rich caramel shade leather car brightened up what’d otherwise be a dark inferior.
BMW I-Drive infotainment ecosystem is displayed on 6.5 touch display, a wider 8.8 inches screen is an option and includes navigation and actual time traffic updates.
No matter the display size, the interface is managed through touch or by using a rotary click wheel mounted among the front seats. The optional Wi-Fi hotspot uses a 4G LTE data link, which needs a monthly subscription after a 3-month trial.
