The 2015 BMW 4-Series Luxury definitely bucks the sports-coupe convention in providing more fuel-efficiency than is typical in this class. 

Even the base 428i equipped with the eight-speed automatic earns up to a 27-mpg rating on the EPA combined cycle; with the six-speed manual, the 4-Series still earns 26 mpg combined. Adding all-wheel drive to the automatic puts the 428xi at 26 mpg combined.

Gas mileage isn't even that awful with the very powerful twin-turbocharged six-cylinder, either. The 435i with the automatic earns an EPA-certified 25 mpg combined, or 24 mpg with all-wheel drive. With the manual transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive, the 4er posts a 23-mpg combined.

No matter which of these models you choose, BMW outfits the 2015 4-Series with stop/start and an EcoPro mode, which slows down the throttle tip-in, softens automatic-transmission shifts, and puts accessory and climate-control systems in their most conservative mode. It also has electric power steering, which reduces feedback, but also reduces gas consumption. And it's lost a little weight, too, versus the 3-Series coupe it's replaced.

BMW does draw the line somewhere in the transition from sedan to coupe. While the 3-Series lineup has a diesel and even an ActiveHybrid edition, there's no such thing in the works for the 4-Series.

Conclusion

You won't necessarily feel like a conspicuous consumer in the 4-Series, lineup, which achieves up to 26 mpg combined.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
