BMW 4-Series 2021 Review: Alright in today’s post I am going to show you the full review of the 2021 BMW 4-Series.

Overview

The all-new 4-Series has a very controversial design. Two different engines and four different models are offered by BMW. The two different engines include either a 255-hp turbocharged four-cylinder or a 382-hp turbocharged inline-six. While passenger space is obviously arranged differently inside the two-door 4-series, passengers are treated to the same standard interior design, layout, and features as in the four-door. Fans of the fastback 4-series Gran Coupe sedan or the high-performance M4 will be very happy to know that those models will continue to be in the lineup; BMW hasn’t released info on them yet, however. The 4-series finally catches up to the 3-series for 2021 with an all-new redesign and bolder exterior styling. The 2021 4-series is scheduled to go on sale in October.

BMW 4-Series 2021 Performance

The same two engines offered in the 3-Series will be offered in the 4-Series. The 430i will be powered by a 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, and the M440i is powered by a silky-smooth turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that gains an assist from a 48-volt hybrid system to make 382-hp.

BMW 4-Series 2021 Models

The 2021 4-Series lineup offers four different models of the car.

  • 430i coupe
  • 430i convertible
  • M440i coupe
  • M440i convertible

Customers may not notice much difference between the cabins of the 4-series and the 3-series unless they’re in the back seat. The dashboard layout, interior materials, and primary controls look to be the same as the four-door 3-series, but we noticed that the lower roofline in the 4-series gives it a less spacious feel. Trunk space is less generous here than in the 3-series, especially in the convertible model, which will likely give up some of its trunk space to provide storage space for its power-folding fabric roof.

The 2021 4-series comes with the standard 8.8-inch and optional 10.3-inch infotainment touchscreens like the 3-series sedan. Both displays run the latest version of BMW’s iDrive 7 infotainment software, which pairs an inherent interface with a console-mounted click wheel controller for easy use while driving, those who prefer to interact with the display directly can do as both are touchscreens. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and in-dash navigation will all be offered while a 12.3-inch digital gauge display, onboard Wi-Fi, and a wireless smartphone charging pad will all be included in additional features.

Fuel Efficiency

The fuel economy is expected to be as same as the 3-series as both the cars share the same engines. The 2021 4-Series is expected to have mid-30s miles-per-gallon range for the 430i in the city, and late in the 20s in the six-cylinder M440i.

Safety & Driver Assistance

The 2021 4-Series hasn’t been crash-tested yet. But it will offer a set of cool driver-assistance features which include standard and more advanced features available as options. Key safety features include:

  • Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode

Pricing

The 2021 4-Series lineup offers four different models and two different engines. A 255-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is offered in the 430i and a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six for M440i that gains an assist from a 48-volt hybrid system to make 382-hp. The M440i will be an enthusiast’s choice, but the nearly $13,000 price premium may turn off some buyers. The M440i comes standard with all-wheel drive, for one thing, and it also offers unique M Sport 18-inch wheels with run-flat tires, the M Sport suspension and rear differential, a rear spoiler, a faux-leather wrapped dashboard and more. A convertible model is undoubtedly on its way, but for now, BMW has only released pricing and feature content information for the hardtop coupe. The starting price of the 2021 4-Series is $46,595. The price of all the models will be:

  • 430i coupe: $46,595
  • 430i Convertible: $55,000 (est)
  • M440i coupe: $59,495
  • M440i Convertible: $65,000 (est)
