Review

The BMW 4 Series Convertible is a highly recommendable drop-top thanks to its keen handling, impressively comfortable ride with adaptive suspension fitted, and classy interior. It’s surprisingly practical, too, making it easy to recommend over the Audi A5 and Mercedes C-Class cabriolets.

get the best price

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

The cheapest diesel is still pricier than the 420i petrol, but has a useful 187bhp and far brisker acceleration – 0-62mph takes a respectable 7.6sec. It’s the most efficient engine in the range, with official economy in the 60mpg range and impressively low CO2 emissions.
