BMW 4 Series 440i Gran Coupe M Sport Review
Gran Sleeper

Introduction & Exterior

Casting nearly the same silhouette as it’s two-doored stablemate, the Gran Coupe looks like a lower-sleeker 3-Series sedan

BMW, like some other manufacturers have recently been blurring the lines between SUVs, Coupes and even sedans, to appeal to a wider audience.

The 440i Gran Coupe is the product of one of these.

Exterior

Casting nearly the same silhouette as its two-doored stablemate, the Gran Coupe looks like a lower-sleeker 3-Series sedan. Only someone with a keen eye would likely be able to tell the difference. The 4,638mm length is just 14mm longer than the 3, but the lower roofline adds to the visual length and girth (also 14mm wider) of the car.

BMW even had their straight-six set at an angle, to accommodate a lower bonnet, and setting a slighter lower centre of gravity.

The signature kidney front grille up front and headlamps carry BMW’s current design language, and closely resemble the 3-Series Sedan’s styling, albeit slightly sleeker and wider. The M Sport package adds to the equation, new lower spoiler treatment, and also removing the honeycomb styled lower grille, in place of a piano black moulding which spans the front of the car. The only chrome bits you are able to see on this car are the grille and some small bits here and there, while other trim is either body coloured or piano black. The windows get black lining from front to rear, ending with BMW’s signature Hofmeister kink at the C-pillar. Behind the front wheel arches, sits a set of prominent fender grills.

Under the huggy huggy wheel arches of the Gran Coupe, you will find M-styled 18-inch rims on 225/45R18 tyres. Rear-end treatment sees tail lamps which are more subtly their own than like a 3-series.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
