Comfort and Refinement

Even the entry level SE model boasts a rich array of elegant and sophisticated features. The finest leathers have been incorporated to create a warm and welcoming environment. BMW has utilised extra high gloss black to create a more stylish appearance and there are colours and materials that are exclusive to the 4 Series range plus a two-tone door trim and improved automatic seatbelt handover system.

Comfort levels are generally very good for such a low vehicle and there is ample room for four occupants to really stretch out. Back seat passengers certainly benefit from the car's additional length although the sloping roof could prove a little claustrophobic to taller passengers in the rear.

Safety and Security

Although the 4 Series has not yet undergone the Euro NCAP crash test programme, it is expected to score highly thanks to the comprehensive array of safety innovations.

There's a multitude of stability and driving aids along with numerous airbags and other safety features.

Additional options include adaptive headlights with glare-free high beam assist, variable beam and cornering lights incorporated into the fog lights. This costs £360 extra. And another first in the segment is the option of adaptive full LED headlights at £1,600.


Technology is in abundance in the 4 Series, but the great thing is how easy it is to use. As standard, all 4 Series models come equipped with two-zone air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors, electric seats (heating optional), rain sensing wipers and automatic headlights, auto boot opening, a 6.5-inch colour screen and iDrive, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, Drive Performance Control, Comfort Go keyless start and lots more as you move up through the trim levels including media packages with internet connectivity and M Sport styling features.

Rivals What We Liked What We Disliked What We Would Like To See Conclusion

By introducing the 4 Series, BMW has given its top-selling range its very own niche in the marketplace. Coupes are all about style and the 4 Series has it by the bucket-load, especially the M Sport with its eye-catching Estoril Blue paintwork and unique design features.
