2015 BMW 428i Grand Coupe

Auto Tech
[MUSIC] In the beginning there was the BMW 3 series, and for a while it was good. But then things got weird when BMW tried to split the coup from the Sedan and form its own 4 series line. Then things got even weirder when BMW decided to make a Sedan version of that coup. So here we are. It's the 2015 BMW 428i GranCoupe and we're wonder what's the point? Let's hop behind the wheel and see if we can't figure it out. Weird out. [MUSIC] Now the key feature is going to keep the Grand Coup from being redundant to the Sedan, is going to be this rear power opening lift gate, it's going to give you a much larger opening than the trunk, to get some bulkier items in. In there, you can even knock those seats down to get really big items in, I think that's gonna give this vehicle a lot more utility, without looking like a hatchback. I really like this. Now, here in the cabin, we've got this really nice red interior that I think contrasts nicely with the blue exterior. The fitting finish is really good in the cabin here, but the dashboard tech is a little bit disappointing. For example we've got over $10,000 in options on this $40,000 car and we don't even have navigation, there's no blind spot monitoring there are a lot of holes in this tech package for a car of this price, what we do have is BMW's latest generation of iDrive with this small. Fixing some change in screen, sometimes this is an interface that is a little maddening and sometimes it just makes perfect sense, it just really depends on the driver. We got the address control right here that you will control everything with and right here next to the transmission, we have got a couple of other controls for one of our only safety features, that is going to be the sort of camera system. So when I shift the car into reverse. Had the option of seeing out of the back of the car, or hitting a button and seeing sort of a bird's eye view of around the vehicle. [MUSIC] Okay, so this 428i model is gonna be powered by BMW. 2 liter twin power turbo charged engine. Gonna put up 242 horsepower, about 258 pound feet of torque and it's a good little engine. It's a good little engine. There's not a lot of turbo lag, very responsive off the line. I like it. This example's also equipped with BMW's M Sport package, a 3500 dollar option. That's gonna make this car a much more dynamic handler thanks to adaptive steering and adaptive suspension. It's a great sports sedan for when you want to take it on a twisty road. [MUSIC] Okay, to get out of the door of this. This 2015 BMW four series brand coupe. You're looking at about 40,300 bucks to get out of the door with this base 428i model. And we've got about $12,000 of options on top of that, including a $3,500 M sport performance package, definitely gonna want that. But we're missing a lot of tech. As tested, we're looking at about $52,300, and were not even close. To being fully loaded. Get crazy with the options and things can get really expensive really fast. [MUSIC]
