2020 BMW 4 Series
Ratings & Reliability
The 4 Series coupe, convertible, and four-door Gran Coupe hatchback versions are based on the outgoing 3 Series. They each 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, six-cylinder turbo 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.
