Let’s face it—the BMW 3 Series is a bit too mediocre for someone who want to have an extra shine out in the roads. Good thing that the vehicle manufacturer made amends by introducing us its hottest coupe in the body of 2015 BMW 4 Series Grand Coup. Despite being derived from the 3 Series Sedan which automatically tells us that this car is a hatchback with 4 doors, it is still something that could boost our ego and touch of being ‘special.’
One can easily spot the wider and longer 4 Series compared to its elder sister. However, it is a mere inch shorter than 3 Series which can be overlooked provided with the stylish class it shows off. For a sporty aura, it has been endowed with 19-inch alloy wheels (but it also comes in the standard 17-inch and 18-inch variant).

The athletic build was completed with the performance endowed by the 3L turbocharged engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. It is also available with 2L four cylinder turbocharged variant for the engine.

In a total sense, the cabin inside also has the touch of sportiness. Buttons and built-in gadgets are neatly placed on the center console where the driver can easily manipulate them. Infotainment’s equipped with a touchpad handwriting feature and navigation is made much easier to read and understand. All in all, you can really spend a great time with this coupe.
