2019 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.

The 4 Series coupe and convertible pack in the style, luxury, and exclusivity. This plush and comfortable line is lower and wider than its 3 Series sedan brethren. They are more of gentlemanly touring cars than a sportsters, yet they're quite capable. Handling is taut, the ride is steady and compliant, and the interior is plush. The rear seat is relatively spacious. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo is sparing with fuel; the 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo is super smooth with effortless go.
