Current Model
The redesigned 2021 BMW 4 Series shares most components with the 3 Series sedan but in a more stylish, two-door coupe guise. In appearance it's more distinguished than the 3-series now.
The iDrive infotainment system is slick and comprehensive but takes some getting used to. It's the first BMW to add standard wireless Android Auto in addition to Apple CarPlay. Two turbocharged engines are available: a 255-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a 382-hp, 3.0-liter six-cylinder with a 48-volt mild-hybrid setup to support accessories without hurting fuel consumption. The sole transmission is an eight-speed automatic, no more manual transmission. Rear and all-wheel drives are available. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, and rear cross traffic warning are all standard.

2020
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.
