All the fours… Yes, meet the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe four-door with four-wheel drive. Fresh from a facelift that comprises trick LED lights, refreshed iDrive and gadgets like a £250 screen of virtual instrument dials, the 4 Series Gran Coupe fights the likes of the new Audi A5 Sportback head-on, plus the more traditional Jaguar XE and Alfa Romeo Giulia saloons. And in sales terms, knocks them out of the park. Here in Britain, BMW shifts over 10,000 4 Series Gran Coupes annually. Only America buys more 4 Series than us lot, and well, they’re bigger than us. As in outnumber… anyway, around 1,000 more Gran Coupes arrive on our roads every year than the trad 4 Series Coupe, which itself outsells the likes of the Audi A5 and Mercedes C-Class coupe. Making a best-selling niche version off the back of the same platform and mechanicals is very smart business. Speaking of business, this is company car central, right? Indeed, which is why the Gran Coupe is the only 4 Series that’s maintained a basic ‘SE’ trim level post-facelift. Wearing 17-inch alloys and carrying less kit, it simply makes more sense on cost-incentivised company car lists. Meanwhile, the coupe and cabrio switch to a Sport or M Sport only line-up.
