Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

When you're inside the 4 Series Convertible, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally got into a BMW 3 Series. The driving position, for example, is almost identical, as are the dashboard and infotainment system.

In many ways that's great news. Okay, you could be behind the wheel of an executive saloon, but a very good one, with a comfortable and supportive driver’s seat (as long as you add optional adjustable lumbar support) and lots of adjustment. If you want a vaguely sporty car, you’ll probably appreciate the fact that you sit closer to the road than in the Audi A5 Cabriolet.

Interior quality isn’t quite up there with the A5, but the margins are small. Indeed, build quality is first rate (and better than in the Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet), with only the odd bit of hard plastic and some silver-painted buttons on the dashboard letting the side down a little. 

The infotainment system is truly brilliant, though. All versions get a 10.3in display that you can either use as a touchscreen or operate by twisting and pressing a rotary controller between the front seats. The dial method is much less distracting while you’re driving and, combined with a super-intuitive operating system, is one of the main reasons we prefer the 4 Series’ infotainment system to the A5’s.

All trims come with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring (so you can use your phone apps on the screen), along with a DAB radio and built-in sat-nav. Wireless phone-charging is available as part of the Technology packs, and includes a gimmicky gesture control function for the infotainment system.

The optional 464W, 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system (available in Technology and Technology Plus packs, or as a standalone option with the M Sport Pro Pack) sounds epic.
