  • Excellent head-up display
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The second-generation BMW 4 Series Coupe (G22) departs from its predecessor in embracing clear differentiation from the BMW 3 Series on which it is based: Notably, a striking front end with prominent, vertical kidney grille is unique to the 4 Series. The powerful yet elegant shoulders and flowing roofline accentuate the vehicle's sporting credentials.

The facelifted BMW 4 Series has improved on an already solid proposition. Can it hold off the likes of the latest generation Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé? From my initial impressions (I've done only about 100 miles in it so far), I'd say the Comfort Plus Pack is well worth it. Things like the head-up display and Harman Kardon surround sound are brilliant, and definitely worth ticking.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following[***]:
The all-new second-generation BMW 4 Series has arrived in the UK. It is the lightest, most aerodynamic and fuel-efficient version of the 4 Series. The range-topping 369bhp M440i xDrive is for now the only multi-cylinder option. The car is as classy, smart and pleasing to behold as its frontal styling.

  • Impressive power and torque
  • Excellent head-up display
  • Excellent rear-seat space
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following[***]:
The 4 Series' design has widely divided opinions but, like it or loathe it, there is more to the second-generation model than its controversial styling. As with its predecessor, the new line-up starts with the Coupé, which has traditionally accounted for 33% of 4 Series sales in the UK. Overall, the cabin features much higher perceived standards of material and finish than the previous 4 Series.

Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
In range-topping M440i xDrive trim, it's deeply impressive. But it's arguably at the bottom end of the range where the 4 Series is at its best. The 2.0-litre turbocharged engine doesn't seem quite as muscular as the 7.5-second 0-62mph time suggests.

Pros[**]
  • Class-leading refinement and smoothness
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
