Review

The BMW 4 Series is great to drive, smart inside and roomier than you might imagine. With its powerful engine the M440i is great fun, but the 420i strikes the best balance between performance and running costs while still impressing on a twisty road.

M Sport trim comes with plenty of standard goodies, including 18in alloys, leather seats (heated in the front), cruise control and climate control. We’d recommend forking out extra for adjustable lumbar support, but none of the option packs is exactly a ‘must have’.

This is the cheapest way into 4 Series ownership and proves quick enough if you’re prepared to work it fairly hard. Our pick of the range.
