The BMW 4 Series Convertible is very accomplished indeed, with keen handling, an impressively comfortable ride (when adaptive suspension is fitted), and a classy interior. It’s even surprisingly practical, so is easy to recommend over the Audi A5 and Mercedes C-Class cabriolets.

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’.

We’ve yet to drive this version, but upgrade from the 420i petrol to the 430i – another 2.0-litre but with 254bhp – for performance that lives up to the racy looks, with 0-62mph taking a hot hatch-baiting 6.2sec. However, the thousands extra it costs over a 420i means it’s not great value for money.
