The 4 Series coupe, convertible, and four-door hatchback versions pack in healthy doses of style, luxury, and exclusivity.
Lower and wider than the 3 Series, the plush and comfortable 4 Series is more of a grand touring car than a pure sports car.
Yet it is quite capable.
Handling is lithe, the ride is steady, and the interior is luxuriant.
The turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is sparing with fuel; the 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder is supersmooth and delivers effortless punch, which makes the 440i a treat to drive.
All-wheel drive is optional.
The convertible version uses a retractable hardtop that can be operated at slow speeds.
The ultra-high-performance M4 is a track-ready version.
For 2020, the 4 Series gets standard forward collision warning, city-speed automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning.
