Features

The BMW 4-Series comes in Coupe or Convertible body styles, with rear- or all-wheel drive, and with a choice of four- or six-cylinder engines and six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions. As of the 2014 model year, prices ranged from about $42,000 for the base 428i Coupe to just less than $50,000 for the all-wheel-drive 435xi. Convertibles were priced from just below $50,000, and can be configured beyond $60,000.

All versions come with Bluetooth, automatic climate control, and power features.

The 4-Series can be optioned as a premium coupe or a lavish grand-touring machine.

Navigation is an option, and it's governed by iDrive, as are most audio and phone functions. The iDrive system still uses a knob-style controller, but this year BMW's added a touch-sensitive surface that accepts handwritten input, just like an old-school Palm Pilot. It's progressed over the years from infuriating to annoying to conquerable. Just be ready to spend a lot of time learning its ins, its outs, and its quirks.

The Luxury package adds upgraded leather in the cabin, a choice of three interior wood trims, unique color combinations, and exterior high-gloss chrome accents. The Sport line replaces the chrome with high-gloss black exterior cues, red-stitched leather in the interior, and red highlights in the instrument cluster, among other upgrades. The M Sport line gets a unique M aerodynamic kit, an optional exclusive Estoril blue exterior color, Shadowline exterior accents, an anthracite headliner, sport seats, and an M-themed appearance.

Other major options on the 4-Series include a color head-up display; active cruise control; a collision warning system; and a sport suspension and sport brakes with blue calipers, the latter as upgrades to the M Sport package. 

For 2015, Bluetooth audio streaming is now standard, and the so-called Enhanced Bluetooth (with a USB port) is now a standalone $500 option, Fineline Anthracite wood trim is now widely available, and Oyster Dakota leather is offered outside of the Sport line and included in Premium Package models.There are a number of other packaging changes for technology options.
