Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There's decent space for the driver and passenger up front, including lots of leg room and more shoulder room than in the C-Class Coupé. Head room is reduced compared with a regular 3 Series, although this is a common theme for all of these coupé derivatives.

There’s a generous amount of storage space, with wide door pockets that are teardrop-shaped to make them easier to fit things into. Extra cubbyholes can be found under the wide central armrest, and there’s a pair of cupholders that can each take a can of drink in front of the gearlever.

There's reasonable room in the rear, certainly for children or average-sized adults. That said, there's a deficit of head room compared to the 3 Series, and leg room isn't quite as good, either – although it's far better than in the 4 Series Coupé. There are also some useful door pockets.

Move to the boot and we’d argue that only the 3 Series Touring estate is more practical. A big hatchback that comes with standard electric operation makes it easy to load bulky items. There’s a range of useful hooks and luggage tie-downs to make the 4 Series Gran Coupé a surprisingly versatile choice. Only the relatively high load lip lets it down, and the fact that you have to pay extra for a split-folding rear bench. The A5 Sportback is even more spacious, though.
