Which 4 Series Gran Coupe does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.1 / 10
BMW has decided that no matter what you want out of a vehicle, it will make a car to fit. Small convertible? Sure. Big SUV? Check. Big SUV with a sloping roofline so it doesn't have much trunk space or rear headroom, but it looks slick? Obviously. All BMW needs now is a pickup truck.
In the case of the 2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, the only really objectionable thing is the name. After all, the Gran Coupe is actually a four-door hatchback with the coupelike profile. Sizewise, it's basically a 3 Series sedan, but you get some nice trim and equipment upgrades. As such, the 4 Series Gran Coupe answers the question: "What should I buy if I like the 3 Series but I don't want the expense or size of a 5 Series?"
The 4 Series Gran Coupe is comfortable and quiet on the road and offers a suitable amount of performance. However, rear headroom is tight, and the hatchback body offers only the smallest of cargo increases over the 3 Series sedan. If you're opting for a four-cylinder engine, the 4 Series Gran Coupe looks very similar to its lesser sibling on paper. Depending on how you look at it, the 4 Series Gran Coupe is either an incredibly obvious choice or an entirely consternating one.
When it launched, the Gran Coupe didn't have much in the way of direct competition, but now there are some compelling alternatives. The Audi A5 Sportback looks even sleeker and has more cargo capacity. Or you might also consider the Kia Stinger, which comes with more equipment for the price and punches above its weight class in terms of driving dynamics and quality.
2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe configurations
Despite the name, the 2018 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 being the main distinctions. The 430i's turbocharged four-cylinder offers a compelling blend of performance and fuel economy. The 440i has a more powerful and nearly as efficient turbocharged six-cylinder engine. 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.
The 430i is motivated by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet). Standard features include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and foglights, automatic wipers, a sunroof, a power liftgate, power-folding and heated outside mirrors, auto-dimming mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, power front seats, driver-seat memory settings, a 40/20/40-split rear seat, simulated leather upholstery, adjustable driving modes, and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
Infotainment duties are handled by an 8.8-inch central display screen with navigation, and a nine-speaker sound system with a CD player, a USB port, and HD and satellite radio. Apple CarPlay is standard, with a one-year complimentary subscription.
You'll primarily upgrade to the 440i for its turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine (322 hp, 332 lb-ft). You also get power lumbar adjustment for the front seats, proximity entry, hands-free liftgate operation and a Harman Kardon premium audio system.
Many optional packages are common to both trim levels. These include the Convenience package, which offers heated front seats along with blind-spot monitoring and adjustable lumbar support on the 430i; the Executive package, which brings adaptive headlights with automatic high-beam control, a surround-view parking camera system, automated vehicle parking and upgraded leather upholstery; and the Driving Assistance package, which offers adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist and forward collision alert with low-speed automatic emergency braking. You can also up the Gran Coupe's sporting capability with the M Sport package that adds performance tires, a sport suspension (or adaptive suspension for an added fee), a sport steering wheel, 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, adaptive suspension and variable-ratio sport steering.
Notable stand-alone options include 19-inch wheels, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and wireless device charging.

BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. the competition
2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe
2018 BMW 3 Series
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. BMW 3 Series
With the same wheelbase and nearly the same length (and about 300 pounds of extra weight), the 4 Series Gran Coupe is very close to the 3 Series. It does offer a six-cylinder engine option, and it generally feels a bit more upscale inside than its "little" sibling. However, it has half an inch less headroom and only marginally more trunk space than the 3 Series sedan. The 3 Series wagon actually offers more storage. Still, the boost in performance and luxury upgrade set the 4 Series Gran Coupe apart. Read Edmund's long-term road test of the BMW 3 Series sedan to find out more.
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. Audi A5
Much like the 4 Series Gran Coupe is more closely related to the 3 Series sedan than its two-door namesake, the A5 hatchback shares most of its DNA with the Audi A4 sedan. But it's all dressed up in sleek A5 coupe styling and comes with more cargo space than the BMW, along with Audi's slick technology interfaces. The one place the not-a-coupe A5 falls short of the Gran Coupe is under the hood. For now, the Audi only comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder.
BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe vs. Kia Stinger
It might seem a little nutty that a Kia can be compared to the big dog of Bavaria, but the Stinger is something new for this Korean brand. With an option of two punchy engines, including a 365-hp turbocharged V6, and rear- or all-wheel drive, the Stinger has no problem keeping pace with the BMW. Add in a surprisingly upscale interior, a sizable cargo area, and all the tech tricks in Kia's bag, and you've got an appealing alternative at a marginally lower price point. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Kia Stinger to find out more.
2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe Sedan for Sale
As German luxury automakers slice and dice traditional market segments, it's fair to say the 2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is in a class of one. The 4 Series is essentially a coupe/convertible version of the ubiquitous 3 Series sedan, and the Gran Coupe further complicates the naming scheme by being a four-door variant of the 4 Series. The Gran Coupe's swoopy profile and rear hatch separate it from the more traditional 3 Series. For 2019, the price has gone up a bit but you also get more standard equipment, such as standard navigation and Apple CarPlay.
Being a BMW, you'd expect it to drive well and the 4 Series Gran Coupe doesn't disappoint. It's powered by your choice of two turbocharged engines, and we think either one will make you happy. The 430i uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque), and the 440i gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder (320 hp, 330 lb-ft).
Both cars are impressively quick, and both offer rear- or all-wheel drive. Fuel economy ranges from 27 mpg combined for the rear-wheel-drive 430i or 25 mpg combined for the all-wheel-drive 440i xDrive.
The Gran Coupe's handling is a strength, again as you might expect from a BMW. We like the Gran Coupe's impeccable poise and sharp feel when initiating a turn, though the steering wheel doesn't transmit all the feedback you want from the tires. The optional M Sport suspension package sharpens the Gran Coupe's responses even further, though it also firms up the ride. That said, we love the way both suspension options soak up bumps and eliminate harshness.
The 4 Series Gran Coupe's front seats are great. Firm and supportive, they also offer a plethora of power adjustments, providing good comfort on long-distance drives and plenty of lateral support for aggressive cornering. But the seats are mounted low, and those prominent side bolsters that offer so much support make the car slightly tricky to enter and exit.
The low roofline compromises rear-seat space. Even those of average height will need to duck while entering and may have to bend their heads to avoid hitting the roof. The 3 Series Gran Turismo — another 3 Series-based four-door coupe but shaped more like a traditional hatchback — provides better backseat room. The Gran Coupe's swoopy roof also compromises rearward visibility, but access to the trunk is excellent.
The 4 Series Gran Coupe comes in 430i and 440i trim levels, distinguished by engine size. Both cars offer an array of options, limited only by your imagination and wallet. Let Edmunds help find the perfect 2019 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 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.
