If I had the money I would buy a…

Relaxing long-distance cruiser! And one of the best out there is the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

Why a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe?

This car is sporty and handsome, with great driving dynamics and it’s practical, too. What more do you want? It is a great all-rounder and will get you to your destination in style and comfort.

It is also quite a desirable model, so might just make the neighbours envious. Bonus.

What’s special about this one?

This particular model is the M Sport Gran Coupe and it comes equipped with the M Sport package (obviously). This sees the car get an Oyster with Dark Oyster highlight and black Dakota leather interior with snug sports seats in the front, M aerodynamic bodystyling and 19-inch M Star-spoke style 403M alloy wheels.

It is powered by the punchy 420d engine mated to a terrific eight-speed automatic transmission.

Who else drives one?

Rich business people! Well, maybe that is a generalisation but they are very popular company cars and, in the US, the 2016 BMW 4-Series ranks second in the luxury small cars segment.

In Ireland, if budget were no issue, BMW ranked second as the car brand that most drivers would choose.

What else could you get for the money?

This car costs €56,900, but for that kind of cash you could also have this Audi A5 Sportback

… or you could have this 37ft, six-berth yacht.
