2020 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Review

  • Hatchback body style makes it easy to load cargo
  • Stout performance with either engine
  • Upscale interior with easy-to-use controls
  • Well-balanced ride and handling
  • Less backseat headroom than the 3 Series sedan
  • Heavier and costlier than similar sedan competitors
  • Less cargo space than its closest hatchback competitors
  • Available only with an automatic transmission
  • Minor exterior trim changes
  • Some driver assistance features now standard
  • Part of the first 4 Series Gran Coupe generation introduced for 2014

A new BMW 3 Series launched last year, but the 2020 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is still based on the previous-generation 3 Series. The 4 Series is a collection of body styles based on but differentiated from the 3 Series sedan. And BMW has been slow to update the coupe, convertible and hatchback (Gran Coupe). The 4 Series Gran Coupe ultimately has less rear-seat room and a smaller cargo area than the current 3 Series, but it might be a better vehicle overall.

Despite its hatchback body style, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is somehow less utilitarian than the 3 Series sedan. Blame the swept roofline that gives the Gran Coupe its signature good looks. It reduces rear headroom, to the point that even average-size adults have to duck to get in and will feel cramped once seated. The roof also cuts into the cargo area, severely reducing its effectiveness.

However, it's the most practical version of the 4 Series, and the only four-door option if you want a new BMW that feels like the last-generation 3 Series. We think the old 3 Series is more comfortable to drive than the current one. And when you opt for the more aggressive suspension with the sport-themed packages, the ride won't beat you up as the sport suspension does on the new car. That means the 4 Series Gran Coupe is rewarding when you drive fast, yet it isn't punishing at low speeds.

You sacrifice some usability and pay a little more if you decide to go with the 4 Series Gran Coupe, but we think it's a more pleasing car overall than a new 3 Series. Just make sure to get a set of summer performance tires, as the standard all-seasons offer less grip than you might expect.

  • EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
    7.1/10
    Comfortable and quiet on the road, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is adept at highway living. While decent in this form, we'd likely seek out some options to up its level of performance. But if you're looking for a more attractive upgrade from a 3 Series or any other entry-level luxury sedan, this BMW is worth a look.

Which 4 Series Gran Coupe does Edmunds recommend?

If you're considering the Gran Coupe over the standard 3 Series, passenger accommodations likely take a back seat to performance. While the 430i is sufficiently powerful for most folks, the 440i is more entertaining to drive and likely fits your needs a little better. The M Sport package is a must if you want to give the 4 Series the dynamic feel worthy of the BMW roundel. Plus, it's the easiest way to get the summer performance tires, which we recommend if you live in a part of the country untouched by snow.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe models

Despite the name, the 2020 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a four-door hatchback with a sedan profile. Two trim levels are available, 430i and 440i, with what's underneath the hood the main distinction. The 430i's turbocharged four-cylinder (248 horsepower, 258 lb-ft of torque) offers a compelling blend of performance and fuel economy.

The 440i has a more powerful and nearly as efficient turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (320 hp, 330 lb-ft). Both models are available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (called xDrive in BMW-speak). An eight-speed automatic is the only transmission available.

Standard features for the 430i include LED headlights, a sunroof, a power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and simulated leather upholstery. You also get lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, and a forward collision warning system with automatic low-speed emergency braking.

An 8.8-inch central display screen with navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a nine-speaker sound system handle the infotainment duties. You'll have to pay extra for an Apple CarPlay subscription, but the first year is included.

You'll primarily upgrade to the 440i for the six-cylinder engine. But you also get power lumbar adjustment for the front seats, hands-free liftgate operation, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system.

Many optional packages are common to both trim levels. These include the Convenience and Executive packages. First, though, you'll have to decide if you want your Gran Coupe in the Luxury or Sport Line treatment, both of which dress up the exterior with different trim details. Note that the Sport Line includes sport seats, which can be switched for the Luxury's less aggressively bolstered thrones at no cost.

You can also increase the Gran Coupe's sporting capability with the M Sport package that adds summer performance tires, a sport suspension (or an adaptive suspension for an added fee), more aggressive-looking front and rear styling, and the contents of the Convenience package. The Track Handling package includes non-run-flat performance tires, upgraded brakes, an adaptive suspension and variable-ratio sport steering.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. BMW 3 Series

A couple of years ago, the 4 Series Gran Coupe was essentially a BMW 3 Series with a swoopy roofline and hatchback body style. Conceptually, that's still correct, but the 3 Series was totally redesigned last year, while the entire 4 Series lineup remains based on the previous-generation 3 Series. That's not necessarily a bad thing since we're not convinced the new 3 Series is better than the last one.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. BMW 5 Series

Like many of the automaker's offerings, the BMW 5 Series is the sporty choice in its segment, midsize luxury sedans. Its traditional sedan profile is akin to the 3 Series, and the longer wheelbase means it has far more rear head- and legroom than the 4 Series Gran Coupe. The downside is the price, which is quite a bit more than the Gran Coupe's, especially when you consider the base engine and standard features are roughly the same between the two cars.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. Audi A5

Like the Gran Coupe, the Audi A5 Sportback is a sleek hatchback variant of a traditionally styled sedan. That means it has less rear headroom than the A4. In contrast to the Gran Coupe, however, the Sportback's cargo area is significantly larger than the A4's trunk and, indeed, the Gran Coupe's. We're also huge fans of the A5's elegantly uncluttered interior and superb infotainment system.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
