The BMW 4 Series 440i Gran Coupe - Rivervale Review
The BMW 4 Series 440i Gran Coupe drives as good as it looks!
For the petrol lover, there is good news; there are 3 petrol engines available with the 4 Series Gran Coupe. Our 2-minute review is on the six-cylinder 440i 3-litre turbocharged petrol engine - the most powerful petrol engine available.
The Gran Coupe has 8-speed automatic transmission and according to BMW, it can reach 0-60 in under 5 seconds! One of the only downfalls is that this vehicle only has the option of a rear-wheel-drive as no xDrive is available which isn’t optimal when the conditions are icy.
The entry-level for the Gran Coupe is the four-cylinder 420i turbocharged petrol, which is less powerful unless you put properly your foot down.
Between the 420i and 440i is the 430i - a more powerful variant of the entry-level engine. Yet, it isn’t quite the 440i, especially if you choose the sport plus pack as showcased in our 2-minute review.
The inside of the 440i comes with a luxurious full leather steering wheel and full leather upholstery. In our video, you’ll see a stunning coral red paint job. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then there are 10 other colours to choose from.
To keep you entertained while driving, you have a fantastic sounding Harman sound system. The entertainment system allows for connection to Apple car play, so you're able to stream your favourite songs and navigation apps from your smartphone.
Inside the cabin, you're able to view sport displays on the screen (horsepower and torque) which is a cool feature while driving that gives the feeling of driving a rally or sports car. The Gran Coupe comes a reasonable boot capacity of 480 litres, which gives you plenty of storage space.
A big difference you’ll find over the standard 4 series is around the back of the car. This one comes with rounded split exhaust pipes with chrome tips, which gives it a classy, sporty look and feel. If you love the cracks and pops of a sporty exhaust, then you will love this car. The exhaust produces plenty of noise, especially on the downshift. This car has the sport plus pack, which includes: 19-inch wheels, M Sports braking system, blue callipers and a lovely exhaust!
