Since 2014, the BMW 4 Series has served the brand’s compact coupe enthusiasts, effectively replacing the two-door version of the 3 Series. The lineup also includes a convertible, and a four-door Gran Coupe body style that adds some of the practicality of the old 3 Series wagon but with the sleek lines of a two-door.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The 2023 BMW 4 Series is unchanged following the introduction of a second-generation design in 2021.
BMW offers the 4 Series in 430i and M440i configurations. The 430i uses a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine, while the M440i gets a 3.0L turbo six-cylinder. An eight-speed transmission and AWD are included either way.
High-performance M4 and battery-powered i4 versions are covered in separate buyer’s guide entries.
BMW 430i models start with 18-inch wheels, leatherette upholstery, a sunroof (in coupe and Gran Coupe), and auto-dimming/power-folding side mirrors. Inside, there’s another auto-dimming mirror, heated/power-adjustable front seats, automatic A/C, 10-speaker audio with satellite radio, and digital gauges. Standard safety features include front and rear parking sensors, forward collision mitigation, and automatic high beams.
M440i trim brings 19-inch wheels, leather upholstery, a 48-volt energy recovery system, a heated steering wheel, sport brakes, suspension and differential, variable ratio steering, adjustable front-seat bolsters, and an aerodynamics package.
An advanced driver assistance pack bundles more sophisticated safety features. The premium essential bundle contains ambient lighting, driver lumbar support, heated steering wheel, and LED fog lights, and a premium enhanced package builds on that with a power tailgate, a drive recorder, upgraded audio, a head-up display, and surround-view cameras.
M440i offers M sport pro and enhanced track packages.
BMW’s fuel consumption estimates for the 4 Series are 10.1/7.1 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 430i, and 10.7/7.6 L/100 km for M440i models.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A5/S5 are the 4 Series’ key competitors, but you can also cross-shop this BMW against the Lexus RC, Infiniti Q60, and Jaguar F-Type.
