The 4 Series Gran Coupe trim line-up mirrors that of the Coupe, with Sport and M Sport trims, with pricing starting from around £36,000. Entry-level versions get leather heated seats, xenon headlamps, LED rear lights, a parking radar, as well as climate control, so although the prices are around £3,000 more expensive model-for-model than the 3 Series, you do get more gear. The xDrive 4WD system is an option for buyers of the 420i derivative.
Satellite navigation is standard on most versions, but the adaptive dampers are a box you might want to tick on the options list, as well as the sport steering. We could take or leave the sports seats, but the stereo upgrade is worth giving a listening to. BMW will also tempt you with a range of Connected services, a head-up display and some neat driver aids but you'll need to keep an eye on the asking price. It's easily possible to spend around £41,000 on an M Sport 420i xDrive, add a few options and end up having spent nearly £45,000 on a four-cylinder, two-litre mid-sized hatch.
