The 4-Series (formerly 3-Series) has long been the standard-bearer in one of the industry's most competitive segments. BMW offers an impressive combination of styling, performance, and luxury features for a German luxury coupe priced from the low forties. Offered in RWD and AWD versions, the 3-Series model range includes multiple models with alphanumeric designations corresponding to their drive train. The 428i equips a turbocharged four-cylinder rated at 240-bhp whereas 435i models include the traditional inline-6 rated at 300-bhp. Most BMW models includes a healthy list of driver aids and available technology, but some common items like heated leather seats require hitting the option list.

What Changed:

The long-running 3-Series coupe becomes the 4-Series with the 2014 model year. The new model is about 2 inches longer, 2 inches wider and an inch shorter in overall height. The track and wheelbase have both increased. Styling changes are subtle: the most visible difference is in the front. Two engines are offered at launch: a 2.0l four-cylinder turbo rated at 240-bhp and a 3.0l turbocharged inline six rated at 300-bhp. Transmission choices include six-speed manuals and eight-speed automatics. Both RWD and AWD (xDrive) are offered.
