New engines bring name changes as well as more power. The former 240-horsepower 428i becomes the 248-hp 430i, and the erstwhile 300-hp 435i is now the 320-hp 440i. The optional navigation system has been updated, while wireless smartphone charging and Wi-Fi are now options. The 440i model has nicer (Nappa) leather for its steering wheel.

2022 BMW 428i Gran Coupe vs the competition
2018 Audi A5/S5 Sportback -- Based on the fresh generation of A4, this is another premium compact 4-door with a hatchback. It might also be argued that it looks beautiful.
2017 Lexus IS -- The current IS has bold looks that have worn well. Its sharp handling and rich interior make it a natural Gran Coupe competitor.
2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class -- The C-Class is stylish enough to make shoppers interested in the 4 Series Gran Coupe think twice, and the 362-hp C43 AMG model has plenty of performance.
