The BMW 4 Series debuted in 2014 as a replacement for the 3 Series coupe and convertible. It is sleeker and sportier than the 2012 platform sedan it was modeled after, and also costs a pretty penny more than the 3 Series models. But its performance and features make it worthy of the higher price tag.
The 428 rides lower to the ground and has wider set wheels, helping it grip and maneuver like a pro. It houses a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder engine with 241 horsepower, but those who just have to have that extra oomph often opt for the top-tier 435i model. True to BMW form, the 428i also has a high-class cabin with plenty of standard and optional features. Top competitors for the 4 Series include the Mercedes C-Class Coupe, Audi S5 or Infiniti Q60.
