Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
No one buys a two-door coupé like the BMW 4 Series for its practicality, but the chances are you occasionally need four seats and a usable boot. Otherwise you’d probably be looking at a thoroughbred sports car – perhaps the Alpine A110 or Porsche 718 Cayman.
As you might expect, the 4 Series is suitably roomy in the front so you’re unlikely to have any issues with head or leg room. Storage space is impressive too, thanks to a big glovebox and a useful cubby under the centre armrest. You also get partitioned door bins to stop loose items rolling around.
