Editor's Overview

The 2014 4 Series marks BMW's new name for what were previously the 3 Series coupe and convertible. With the fresh nomenclature come an enhanced interior and exterior, and a powerful-yet-efficient 4-cylinder engine in base models. Where the Mercedes C250 leans toward comfort and the Audi A5 has finesse and aesthetics, the 4 Series wows with its performance.

Beautiful and classy as well as reliable.

Reliable, good looking, trusted brand, very comfortable, beautiful interior, no problems, good mile per gallon ratio plenty of room for customization, must find a reliable body shop, plenty of colors to choose from I highly recommend this for a family or a single person.

- Nina I

Comfortable and very spacious.

Easy to drive. Has front and back cameras, very comfortable, leather seats, it has a lot of space in the front, backseats and in the trunk. There is heater on both front seats. Touch screen and easy access buttons in the steering wheel. Overall I am very happy with it.

- Mary C

BMW series 4 a beautiful car.

It is very comfortable, the leather seats are a great addition. It has heating and cooling seats as well as a heated steering wheel. The performance is good but could be faster. Does not use much gas per mile, however requires highest gas level which is expensive.
