Effectively the replacement for the 3 Series Coupe. Longer wheelbase means more interior space. Best looking BMW in the range.

Introduction

The BMW 4 Series Coupe is effectively the replacement for the 3 Series Coupe in the BMW range. In terms of engines you won't be surprised to find the 4 Series follows the 3 Series range. So from launch in October 2013 there will be a 420d, a 428i and a top of the range 435i.

The 420d is expected to make up a third of all cars sold and it certainly makes the most sense on paper. It has 184PS plus plenty of poke with 380Nm of torque and yet impressively will average 60.1mpg according to the official figures.

Compared to the outgoing 3 Series Coupe prices have risen. A 420d is £540 more than the 320d Coupe it replaces but then the 4 Series is considerably better equipped with things like heated and electric seats as standard. Total up the value and the 420d actually has £1475 worth of extra kit fitted.

As desirability goes, the 4 Series is right up there alongside the Audi A5. It's a great bit of BMW design and there's not a duff engine in the line-up - every model gives impressive performance. With the convertible and M4 versions in the pipeline, the 4 Series will have few problems emulating the success of the 3 Series Coupe.
