2018 BMW 4 Series Blends Performance, Luxury, and the Everyday Practical

When we ask our Norwood, MA drivers to envision and describe their ideal luxury car, we almost always hear a variation on a balance of sports-car dynamics and premium comforts and appointments in abundance. We know, then, that they're surely referring to the BMW 4 Series, and for many, that model choice turns out to be the right one. So, what makes the latest 2018 lineup of such wide-ranging appeal?

  1. A body style to suit diverse driving styles, from a coupe for the sportster to a retractable hardtop convertible for open-air excitement, all the way to the high-octane yet cargo-and-passenger-friendly four-door liftback Gran Coupe.
  2. Standard rear-wheel drive giving way to the celebrated xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, available throughout the new 4 Series lineup.
  3. BMW kept center of gravity low when it designed its two- and four-door, resulting in nimble handling only the spirited sprint of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine options could improve -- and the 4 Series has both.
  4. A base 248-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder shelling 258 energetic pound feet of torque becomes a 3.0-liter V6 with up to 320 horsepower in select trims. The latter makes possible a blistering zero-to-60 mile-per-hour acceleration time of approximately 4.6 seconds.

Handling and Transmission

Better yet, unlike the Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe, Infiniti Q60, or Lexus RC, a sporty manual transmission is still offered in the 4 Series coupe and sedans alike, with a smooth-operating eight-speed sport auto available. Factoring in variable sport steering and M Sport brakes, available with the Track Handling Package, as well as a lightweight, highly rigid Adaptive M Suspension with electronically controlled dampers, the result is the kind of adrenalized thrill ride enthusiasts crave.

Luxury Features & Space

Of course, let's not forget, a new 4 Series puts a premium on luxury. Comfortable SensaTec or leather seating options present, and you can count on up to a generous 45.9 cubic feet of storage space in Gran Coupe iteration. That's thanks to a hatch-style liftgate to optimize rear headroom or make extra for plenty of luggage, surely putting that day trip to the Franklin Cultural District back on the agenda.

It's well-appointed, too. You can find an optional Head-up Display for reviewing critical driving metrics, standard BMW Navigation to help you make way, available Wi-Fi hotspot support for staying in touch with civilization, and optional Qi wireless charging capability to energize your devices for the road. There's even a Park Distance Control to simplify sidling up to your venue's spots with peace of mind. Finally, you can manage it all from the BMW Connected app: available digital services for your excursion include Amazon Alexa support for trip planning, calendar and navigation sync, departure time alerts, and more.
