Introduction

What Car? says...

We love a bit of innovation, but sometimes traditional methods are best – as demonstrated by the BMW 4 Series Convertible. After prattling on all through the previous model’s life about how good a folding metal roof was, BMW has moved back to a good old-fashioned fabric one.

Economy and emissions are a bigger focus than ever these days, and canvas offers a weight saving over steel that was impossible to ignore. Still, the 4 Series Convertible has grown longer and wider, so despite the new roof it’s put on a few pounds. That's partly offset by the introduction of mild-hybrid technology to most of the engines, though.

So, how does the BMW 4 Series Convertible compare with its direct competitors? Over the next few pages of this review, we’ll tell you what it’s like to drive, how swanky it is inside, how practical it is and the size of the hole it’ll leave in your bank balance.

If you're ready to buy one – or, indeed, a new vehicle of any make and model – don’t forget to check out the free What Car? New Car Buying pages for plenty of hassle-free savings on all manner of new cars and SUVs, including some mouthwatering BMW 4 Series Convertible deals.
