What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe hatchback?
The Audi A5 Sportback is similar to the 4 Series Gran Coupé in that it comes with a practical hatchback boot, yet it has coupé-inspired styling with a low roofline and sleek lines. It won’t have the same amount of space inside as the 4 Series Gran Coupé, but it will corner better with less body roll.
If you want something with a bit more flair, then there is the bold styling of the Citroën DS5 to consider. It has the additional height as per the 4 Series Gran Coupé, plus road and wind noise are well contained at speed. Its unforgiving, rock-hard ride doesn’t do it any favours, though.
Then, there is the more conventional alternative, the 3 Series Touring. It's one of the few cars where you can still open the glass separate to the rear hatch and it's just as good to drive as the 4 Series Gran Coupé.
