Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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.

Pros
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

Cons
Available only with an automatic transmission
Less cargo space than closest hatchback competitors
Heavier and costlier than similar sedan competitors
Less backseat headroom than in the 3 Series sedan
