The Design

From the looks of it the 4 series looks like a more sleeker version of the previous 3 series, however, there are some major design upgrades as well.

BMW has always been aggressive with their grills this time was no exception as well. The grill on the 4 series is much more bigger than what we saw on the 3 series one addition, however, is that the number plate is now placed on the grill rather than being beneath it. BMW grills have always been controversial so basically it's going to be as it always have been some people might like it while others would not.

The 4 series gets a more sleeker looking led head lamp which can further be upgraded to high laser beam.

What might be disappointing for the BMW fans is that the rear diffuser is fake and the exhaust pipes are a bit overstated.

As for the interior there are not any major upgrades it's similar to what the 3 series had to offer there are, however, some key options in the 4 series which contributes to the higher asking price than the 3 series. Such as the acoustic windscreen, tri zone climate control, 360 degree camera to assist parking and the Harman Kardon sound system. Not to mention the optional sunroof in the 4 series is now 24mm longer than the 3 series.

The chassis on this car is more sportier and stiff than the 3 series. The rear track is now 23mm wider than the previous generation. The car now sits 57mm lower to the ground to improve stability and the center of gravity is also lowered by 21mm to improve the handling of the car

Practicality

Being a coupe practicality might not be the best the car has to offer. The 4 series is a 4 seater rather than being a 5 seater. Getting into the back seats is not exactly convenient and for people who are above 6 foot will the head and knee room is going to be tight.

The boot of the car, however, is a decent size with a capacity of 440 liters. The rear seats can also be folded down to have space for extra luggage and the ski hatch can be folded down to carry longer items.

Infotainment system

The infotainment system on the new 4 series is similar to what we have on the 3 series apart from a few upgrades. The 4 series is the first ever BMW to support both apple car play and Android auto. The screen is a 9 inch display though you can upgrade it to a 10 inch display. Apart from that the rest is all similar with the same gimmicky hand gestures and the voice commands.

The new heads up display, however, is the best in competition and is 70 percent larger than the previous model.

Engine

The new 4 series comes in three versions.

The 420i has 2.0l turbo petrol with 184hp and 300Nm torque.

The 430i has 2.0l turbo petrol with 258hp and 400Nm torque.

The 440i has 3.0l turbo petrol with 374hp and 500Nm torque with all wheel drive and BMW claims that it can go from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds.

For better mileage some people might go for the diesel versions which have a mild hybrid system for better fuel economy.

A real bummer for some people though is that the 4 series comes in automatic only.

Price

The new BMW 4 series will go on sale in October and the starting price will be £40,000 for the base level 420i and the top end 440i will cost around £54,000 without any options.
