Parkers overall rating: 4.4 out of 5 4.4
  • Lots of room upfront
  • Acceptable in the rear, too
  • Smaller boot than rivals

As you'd expect, the 4 Series is roomy for the driver and front-seat passenger, but less so for those in the rear. There's plenty of storage space, too, with a large and well-shaped glovebox and a useful cubbyhole under the central armrest. The cupholders and phone storage in the centre console are well thought out – making this the perfect car for those who spend lots of time on the road.

Although getting into the rear is a bit of a scramble, once installed there's a reasonable amount of head and legroom, even if it lags behind the saloon it's based upon. In short, it's a decent four-seater, slightly behind the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe and Audi A5 for room, but ahead of the Lexus RC.

The 4 Series' boot is reasonable enough in isolation, but it lags behind the the A5 and C-Class Coupe, and has a smaller opening. The good news is that you can fold down the rear seats to increase the amount of luggage you can carry.

Safety

  • BMW Active Guard comes as standard
  • Lots of safety features as standard, more on the options list
  • Based on the five-star BMW 3 Series

The BMW 4 Series has not been tested by Euro NCAP, but if and when it is, expect it to gain a full five-star rating. We can say that with confidence, as it's closely related to tbe BMW 3 Series, and that scored the full five-star rating when tested. A stand out result was its 97% score for adult occupant protection and 87% in both child and pedestrian safety.

The 4 Series comes with Active Guard Plus as standard, which features front collision warning with brake intervention and pedestrian detection and lane-departure warning. Buyers can optionally add the Driving Assistant Professional pack, which packs in the following driver assistance and safety equipment:
