For The BMW 4 Series is enjoyable to drive, generously equipped and competitively priced. It’s practical for a two-door car, too, with space for four adults and a large boot.
Against Refinement could be better and the interior is almost identical to the cheaper 3 Series saloon’s.

There are 33 BMW 4 Series versions available
Target Price team says:
The 4 Series is available with a range of 2.0- and 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol and diesel engines. The 2.0-litre 420d diesel is expected to be the best seller, but if you can afford it, the 435i petrol is the one to go for.
Whichever model you choose, we’d recommend going for the automatic gearbox (the manual 'box has a stiff and notchy shift action). We’d also add the optional Adaptive M Sports suspension, because this improves ride comfort and handling.
Most versions are rear-wheel drive, but the 420i petrol and 420d diesel are also available in xDrive four-wheel-drive form. The 435d is four-wheel drive only.
