New 4 Series

I've been looking around at some car reviews and thinking back when I was looking at the A5 and A6's ..

Boy they're coming up with some good engines for the price.. I always liked the size of an A5/6. Nothing too big like a F10 but abit larger than a F30..

Curious to see if the new 4 series will be a good contender for this segment of the market.

but won't the 4 series realistically just be the coupe version of the 3 series? I mean the market has always been there. I personally love the coupes but please please please don't make a '4 door coupe'... let the coupe remain a 2 door and get car manufacturers to stopo bastardising the coupe segment with 4 door 'gran coupes' or '4 door sportsback' versions...

back on track though, I agree that the engine specs have been beefed up for the prices... seems to be a good thing overall i guess

I think he is talking about the 4 series Gran Coupe.

Ya the grand coupes .. if they only make 435's and 450's the price will be between a 335 and a 535 .. will be quite interesting

They'll probably share the same engine range as the coupes, so a n20 based 428i (or something) will be in there. Considering Audi A5 sportbacks start with 1.8L fwd versions, they should compete pretty well.

Agree about the bastardisation of the coupe segment. If it's got 4 doors, it's not really a coupe, even if it has a coupe roofline. I think both Audi and BMW want to keep these things distinct from their normal sedan range, even though the actual market for them is almost identical.
