BMW 4-Series vs Merc C-Coupe vs Audi A5
BMW's two-door successor to the 3-Series coupe has arrived. We test it against its German competition
Posted: 04 Dec 2013
The BMW is the longest car, at most risk from car-park dents as you squeeze in and out - a point exaggerated when you open the lengthy door and get inside, whereupon a robo-arm passes the seatbelt from over your shoulder. The cabin is otherwise familiar if you've spent much time in a new 3-Series. It's unfussy, uncluttered and the metal inserts are cold to the touch. The steering wheel is round. There's a proper handbrake. And the widescreen satnav display renders landmarks and even nondescript buildings in 3D, which makes navigation more like a game of SimCity.
