Road testing the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé
ROAD testing the eye-catching BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé was certainly a new experience for me – and certainly an enjoyable one for a weekend away for my wedding anniversary.
It certainly helped make the occasion extra special and provided a comortable yet sporty journey to North Wales.
The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé is a car which aims to combine the comfort of a four-door saloon with the looks of a coupé and the practicality of a hatchback’s wide-opening tailgate.
It looks more elegant than the 3 Series saloon and there’s no ignoring the usefulness of that hatchback boot which provided just as much room as my Landrover Freelander.
You can choose several suspension settings and where the standard suspension can thump over bumps and potholes the 4 Series Gran Coupé can ride most surfaces agreeably, considering its sporty character.
In the softer Comfort mode, the body is never less than well damped and controlled, yet it offers greater pliancy than the standard suspension musters. You can firm it up in Sport or Sport+ modes for even tighter control and tauter handling when desired.
The car was provided by Central Self Drive who have found customers require more than a day-to-day rental but don’t want to feel restricted to a yearly contract either.
They have introduced our Month-By-Month hire option, whereby customers can lease a car or van in periods of single calendar months. You can also sign up to our Month-By-Month hire option if you need a
vehicle for one month or longer. Car hire is also available if you fancy somwethng a little different for a special occasion or want something for a longer journey.
The BMW Grand Coupe is available from £144.00pw.
