What Car? says...

Take a casual glance at the BMW 4 Series Convertible and you could be forgiven for thinking it was actually the fixed-roof coupé version. That’s because BMW has chosen to give the open-top model a folding metal roof rather than a cloth one. This is great for keeping noise out on the move, but not so great for the amount of added weight you need to cart about.

There’s a choice of six engines, two trims, a manual or an automatic gearbox, plus two or four-wheel drive. Ultimately, BMW should have all of your needs covered.

That said, there are some tempting alternatives out there vying for your attention. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet is a similarly premium offering, while Audi has the open-top A5.

So, should you choose the 4 Series Convertible over those rivals? And, if so, which engine and trim should you go for? That's what we'll be looking at in this review.
