Review

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.

The M440i gets all of the stuff regular M Sport models get, plus 19in wheels (instead of 18s), adaptive suspension, more powerful brakes and a limited-slip rear differential to enhance traction out of corners. Oh, and that brawny six-cylinder engine, of course.

This is the most powerful 4 Series Convertible, aside from the high performance M4. Its turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol engine produces a hearty 369bhp, which is deployed to all four wheels as standard. All that traction means whipcrack acceleration, with 0-62mph taking a mere 4.9sec. The M440i does sit in a high company car tax bracket, but more than 30mpg is achievable in the real world if you drive sedately.
