BMW 4 Series Leasing
Top 3 Features
This is the 2-door coupe and convertible version of the 3 Series.
It has a distinctive look compared to the saloon and estate models.
But it gets a similar range of strong petrol and diesel engines.
Why Lease A BMW 4 Series?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
As a sporty 2-door model, the 4 Series is hardly the last word in practicality and it certainly won’t be on many family buyers’ shortlists to lease. But for an individual or couple it can still be more than sufficient, thanks to a boot capacity of 440 litres in the Coupe and 385 litres in the Convertible. Friends may not thank you for giving them a lift in the back seats, however, as foot and legroom is at a premium, so these are best reserved for kids – or as extra luggage space. There are also plenty of places to stash smaller items, with a large glovebox and spacious box under the central armrest.
The BMW 4 Series’ more compact size means it misses out on the highly efficient plug-in hybrid petrol-electric drivetrain that’s available with the 3 Series Saloon and Touring estate, but that doesn’t mean it will cost an arm and a leg to run. If you lease the BMW 420d diesel model, you could see close to 60mpg in everyday motoring, while even the petrol 420i and 430i manage in the region of 40mpg. The high-performance M440i and M4 have a considerable thirst, however.
BMW 4 Series CoupeMuch more than just a 3 Series minus 2 doors, the 4 Series Coupe has a distinctive, sporty and aggressive look all of its own – while still squeezing in 2 small rear seats suitable for kids or shorter adults.
BMW 4 Series ConvertibleWho doesn’t love some top-down motoring? The 4 Series Convertible replaces the Coupe’s roof with a power-folding soft-top, allowing you to enjoy wind-in-the-hair driving whenever the sun comes out.
High Performance ModelsBMW’s ‘M’ models always sit at or near the top of their respective ranges, offering a compelling driving experience and prodigious performance. For the 4 Series, there’s the M440i xDrive, which is a swift and subtle performance coupe, while the wilder – and very expensive – M4 is really a full-on Porsche 911 rival disguised as an executive car.
The BMW 4 Series Vs Competitors
This generation of 4 Series is fresh to the market, so detailed reliability data is hard to come by just yet. The BMW brand as a whole has tended to finish in ‘upper midfield’ positions in recent industry customer satisfaction surveys, so there is some room for improvement.
In hard-top Coupe form, 440 litres. The Convertible obviously has to give over some space to storing the soft-top when it’s lowered, so its luggage capacity drops to 385 litres.
The 4 Series is available in quite a limited number of specifications. There’s no entry-level SE or Sport here, just M Sport, M Sport Pro Edition and then the high-performance M440i and M4 derivatives.
While the regular petrol and diesel 4 Series incorporate mild-hybrid technology to improve their engines’ efficiency, the plug-in hybrid petrol-electric drivetrain offered in the 3 Series is unfortunately not available here.
Accommodating 4 adults, or 2 adults plus kids and their luggage, is realistically going to be a squeeze, but with its rear seats and decently spacious boot, the 4 Series is a perfectly practical everyday car for a single person or couple.
The appeal of the BMW badge on the nose goes a long way towards explaining the 4 Series’ appeal, but it backs that up by also being fantastic to drive, great to look at and put together very solidly.
