Expert's Rating

3.3 (Good)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Whenever a new BMW 3-Series sedan is brought to market, a coupe equivalent is usually hot on its heels. Yet for 2020, the old-generation coupe and convertible are still hanging around under the 4-Series banner, with no sign so far of their inevitable replacements. No matter, the current 4-Series lineup continues to represent a stylish foray into the BMW fold. With good looks and a sporting demeanor, the 2020 BMW 4-Series shouldn't have anyone pining too loudly for the arrival of the next generation.

What's New for 2020

A couple new paint options and wheel designs are the extent of the changes for 2020.

BMW 4 Series

Choosing Your BMW 4-Series

The 4-Series is comprised of three distinct body styles: coupe, convertible, and Gran Coupe. Despite what the name hints at, that last one is a five-door hatchback wearing a conventional sedan profile. It'll trick most passerby into thinking it's a 3-Series, but the folding rear seats and liftback design gives owners significantly more cargo space than the traditional four-door.

As always, full-bore M models are offered as both coupes and convertibles. These performance mavens are covered separately.

Irrespective of body style, all 4-Series models come with either four or six cylinders under the hood. The four-cylinder cars wear a 430i badge and use a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. The powerplant makes 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to call up 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. All-wheel drive – xDrive in BMW parlance – is a $2,000 option.

The EPA estimates all rear-wheel-drive 4-Series models with this powerplant will achieve 23 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 27 combined. Those equipped with xDrive return 21/31/24 mpg (city/highway/combined), or 22/32/26 mpg in convertible form.

The six-cylinder cars run 3.0-liter turbocharged motors and are dubbed 440i. With an extra 72 horsepower over the four-cylinder, the bigger engine delivers zero-to-60 times of 4.8 seconds for RWD models. With the available xDrive, that time drops to 4.6 seconds. Unsurprisingly, gas mileage takes a hit relative to the four-cylinder: 22/30/25 mpg with either rear or all-wheel drive, or 22/29/24 mpg in RWD convertible form or 20/28/23 mpg with an xDrive convertible..

Both engines come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, though coupes can be had with a six-speed manual at no charge.

The 4-Series uses an inverted-Y system for its trim levels, which are largely aesthetic in nature and termed "Designs" by the marque. Sport is where things default to and includes high-gloss black trim in lieu of chrome; Luxury is the opposite and swaps the glossy stuff for the shiny stuff. The price remains the same regardless of which trimmings suit your style. What that price is exactly varies by body style: a Gran Coupe begins at $45,745, a coupe at $200 more, and a convertible at $54,095.

Atop that upside-down-Y is the M Sport. This Design costs another $3,400 to $3,700 depending on model and adds more aggressive styling front and rear, unique wheels, an M Sport suspension, and a few other bits and bobs.

Nearly every 4-Series is available with the same three packages: Convenience, Executive, and Track Handling. The Convenience costs between $850 and $1,100 depending on model and trim and bundles lumbar support, heated front seats, and blind-spot monitoring.

The Executive runs for $2,550 and includes high-beam assist, adaptive LED lighting, surround-view cameras, and a parking assistant that can lets the car seek out a space and steer itself into it.

Traditional fans of the brand will want to consider the $1,700 Track Handling Package. It includes an adaptive M suspension, M Sport brakes, and variable sport steering. Sun-seekers should note that this package isn't available on the convertible.

Numerous features available within these packages are also available à la carte. Other standalone options not mentioned above include a head-up display ($1,100), wireless charging and in-car wi-fi ($500), a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system ($875), and adaptive cruise control ($1,200). Genuine leather upholstery is $1,450 and requires purchase of the Convenience Package.

430i

The 430i cars use the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The Gran Coupe begins at $45,745, the coupe at $45,945, and the convertible at $54,095. All prices include a $995 destination charge. xDrive is available on every body style and adds $2,000 to the bottom line.

Standard features are largely the same no matter what body style is selected. On the outside, there's 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and heated and power-folding mirrors. Interiors come standard with black SensaTec leatherette, 10-way power seats, memory function for the driver's seat and exterior mirrors, 40/20/40-split folding rear seats, four 12-volt power sockets, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and audible parking assist.

The standard iDrive infotainment system is housed in an 8.8-inch touchscreen. It features navigation, 20 GB of file storage, voice recognition, real-time traffic information, and cloud services. The infotainment display also serves as the hub for the nine-speaker audio system that now finally includes Apple CarPlay as standard (Android Auto remains unavailable).

Standard safety features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic collision notification.

440i

The 440i cars swap out the four-cylinder for a 330-hp, 3.0-liter straight-six. Prices begin at $52,145 for the Gran Coupe, $52,345 for the coupe, and $61,145 for the convertible. xDrive remains a $2,000 upcharge across the board.

Standard features are largely the same on the 440i as they are on the 430i; the price difference can be mostly attributed to the more potent mechanicals hiding in the engine bay. The few luxury bits that BMW does toss in include four-way lumbar support, the 16-speaker Harman Karmon audio system, a hands-free trunk opening, and SiriusXM radio.

CarsDirect Tip

When it comes to the 2020 BMW 4-Series lineup, a 440i coupe with the Track Handling Package offers the familiar blend of sport and luxury that made BMW so renowned in the first place. If that combination is a bit too pricey or performance-oriented for your taste, we'd recommend a 430i with the Convenience Package. It won't break the bank and makes for a properly posh commuter regardless of your preferred body style.
