2018 BMW 440 Gran Coupe review: Our expert's take


BMW announced the 2018 lineup of its 4 Series, which again includes the coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe "four-door coupe" variants. The new model year brings updates inside, outside and under the hood — perhaps most notably, a stiffer suspension and enhanced steering intended to enable a sportier driving experience.


BMW says suspension tweaks reduce roll and provide greater stability, and the improvements apply to the standard, M Sport and Adaptive M suspension systems. All 4 Series models are available in the following trims: the 248-horsepower 430i, 430i xDrive all-wheel-drive version, 320-hp 440i and 440i xDrive all-wheel-drive equivalent. The engine is mated to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission or an optional six-speed manual.


In addition to suspension tuning, BMW says the 4 Series also gets a wider stance and longer wheelbase than the outgoing version. Updated styling cues in front include hexagonal full LED twin headlights, an expansive central air intake with high-gloss black-finish surrounds, flat-bottom headlight tubes surrounded by daytime running light rings forming an "eyebrow" design, standard LED front fog lamps and optional adaptive headlights. The automaker describes the new LED arrangement as creating a "sharper gaze" for the 4 Series.


In back, the revised 4 Series also gets full LED taillights, which remain in the familiar L-shaped orientation but are restyled. BMW says the "bold horizontal lines and elongated design of the rear light clusters make the muscular wheel arches stand out," while the higher positioning of the reflectors make the rear end appear lower.


New exterior paint colors exclusive to the 4 Series include Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic and Sunset Orange. That's in addition to available, model-exclusive 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels.


Inside the cabin, new finishes adorn the air outlets, door-mounted control panels and center console. The instrument panel gets double-stitch detailing, while the standard sport steering wheel is wrapped in leather. New interior colors include Midnight Blue Dakota, Cognac Dakota and Ivory White Dakota leather, all with contrast stitching and piping. New Carbon Aluminum interior trim is also available.


Other new features include an optional navigation system with a new six-tile, driver-configurable interface; wireless smartphone charging; Apple CarPlay smartphone integration; and the BMW ConnectedDrive digital mobility-management system. Another new feature is the Multifunctional Instrument Display, available with the Executive Package, offering three selectable modes, including classic Comfort, efficiency-highlighting Eco Pro and performance-focused Sport, each displaying the info most relevant to its area of emphasis.

Most beautiful car I’ve ever owned

The car is great love the design. Just drove it home and I’m already to forget my Tesla. I was really impressed with the quality of the ride. I made an excellent choice

4.1

Smooth power and composed handlin

After one month with this car, it has confirmed my initial impressions that it was designed around the driver experience. Comfort and convenience are adequate. Cost is comparable to competitive models with similar trim levels. And, the handling, acceleration, and general driving experience are very good. Two annoying things noted so far. When you turn off the overly sensitive parking assistance, it also turns off the back up camera. And, when hand washing the car, the automatic lift gate activates - hopefully I will eventually find a way to turn that off during future washes. Overall, if reliability turns out to be better than BMWs reputation, I hope to drive and enjoy this car for many years.

4.0

Smooth power, nimble handling, athletic styling

The car grips the pavement well, navigates turns confidently, and provides smooth and quick acceleration. It is getting 25 mpg in mixed driving. And it looks good.
