The BMW 4 Series is our 2014 Coupe of the Year, but now there's a drop-top version, too. It looks near-identical to its sister model in profile, because it uses a folding hard-top roof instead of a fabric roof.

The 4 Series Convertible is offered with three engines from launch: a 181bhp diesel (the 420d), a 242bhp petrol (428i) and the range-topping 302bhp (435i).

Is it refined, comfortable and plush enough to take on the class leaders? We drive the 420d in our video road test to find out.
