We have known for quite some time that Bimmer’s naming system is slowly morphing to cover nearly every number from 1 through 10. It began with the 1 Series and 2 Series, and now moved into the 4 Series.
Here’s the low down on all of that. The 1 Series , once everything is said and done, will only feature sedans. The 1 Series coupe and convertible are now the 2 Series . Finally, the 3 Series now features only sedans, and the 4 Series takes over the midsize coupe and convertible markets to replace the 3 Series coupe and convertible.
Well, now there is a new wrinkle in the whole 4 Series lineup that will likely make your head spin, and that is the 4 Series Gran Coupè. Sure, it has four-doors and many of us automatically figure that is a sedan, but BMW, Mercedes and Audi like to call sleek sedans on sporty platform coupès and who are we to argue with them?
