Video Review - BMW 4 Series Coupe 420i M Sport (A)
02 Aug 2021  |  BMW Reviews
Distinctive looks and a cabin just barely spacious enough to tow the children is what the BMW 4 Series has to offer.

This 4 Series now sports an ungainly grille but don't be put off, its drive is anything but. If you're after something that will reward the driver, this is it.

What I like
You get all the usual BMW trademark features here, from the cabin, which is spacious and yet manages to cocoons you as you drive, to the intuitive infotainment system and that quick steering setup for high agility, even when you're simply driving around town.

And there's little holders that extend out to hand you your seatbelt in this 4 Series, a very nice touch.

Throttle response is crisp, and the car always feels alert underneath you, despite being powered by a 2.0-litre.

What I do not like
That grill. Get the brochure and look at the car again after a few days, does it look ok after the initial shock factor? Or perhaps in a darker shade?

Forget the fact that this 420i comes with a 2.0-litre engine. Acceleration is strong and eager in this little coupe.

What I like
Ok, so the looks are not charming. You cannot avoid looking at that grille. But the rest of the car is mighty pleasing to look at. It's sleek, suggests forward motion, and ends in a delicate slope at the rear that is mighty pleasing to the eyes.

Step in and you'll find it also has a mighty well-laid-out cabin. It's all sensible and very intuitive to use.

Driving the 4 Series Coupe will also please. It is fast, and a cleaver gearbox here allows you to deploy all that 300Nm effectively. Drive leisurely and shifts are creamy smooth. Drive hard and it becomes willing to rev and go. What more do you need?

What I do not like
There's really nothing to complain about here. Head space at the rear is tight but you're buying a two-door. What do you expect?

Now, if only there was a solution for that grille...

Went by PML to catch a glimpse of the new 4 series, where there are 2 variants, 420 and 430 where all bases are same except the 430 comes with sunroof, M Sports package (lights, sound, labels, etc.), M Sport Brakes, 19 inches, tuned up engine and Adaptive M Suspension with additional price tag too.

First looks, smaller and curvy signature kidney grills that is a newer look. Slicker to the back means better wind speeds when at fast drive too.

Interior, comes with the standard BMW interior which has button controls on lights than the conventional earlier knobs. Features wise, to my surprise, the speed alert comes in dual form, so you set first at 80kmh and second at 90kmh.

Other than that, comes with lane departure, lane change warning with steering intervention and also the usual front assist with blind spot assist too.

Drive feel was GREAT as the pickup was excellent and gear shifts were unheard too (Comfort mode) and agile handling. When engage to SPORTs mode, the agility was even better with stiffer steering for a more sturdy handling too. Swivering around was of no body roll as well.

Back into the showroom, tried the fully AUTO parking where there is no need any driver intervention (YES, not even the need to change gear from D to R to D and the pedals). Simply press the mode, let it alert you with their wide 360 sensors and once found, press screen to commence parking then leave the rest to the car will do. Once done, it even engages parking brake for you and shifts gear to P mode. EXCELLENT indeed.

I got to know that it can do reverse even if both sides are empty lots too, whereas current ones in some makes need to have either 2 cars side or no pillar kind.

Overall, the 4 series is a featuristic car that comes with great drive, pickup and many excellent features. If you are looking for a 2 seater, 2nd car or only you use car, do get this then.

What I like
Torqi car
Smooth gear shifts
Good handling
Fully AUTO parking (without need to do anything to both parallel and reverse)
Lane Change Warning with steering intervention
Lane Departure Warning
Blind Spot Assist
Front Assist
DUAL Speed alert
Locking mechanism selection

What I do not like
Only price.

BMW's 4 Series has returned with quite the divisive styling. I think it doesn't look so bad in the 'base' 420i compared to the more powerful variants, but does it really matter when the car is such a delight to drive?

What I like
Yup, gutsy and responsive is that engine, giving you quite a bit oh shove for a 2-litre. The suspension is fine as well, firm but still pliant enough if you want to drive this thing everyday to work, etc.

You sit fairly low in the cabin, and the build quality is also excellent. Everything just feels really well put together. But at this price you really ought to expect something a little more showy in the cabin.

What I do not like
Previous generation definitely looked way better, unfortunately.

Really don't understand why BMW came up with such a front end for the 4 Series. Every other part of the car is fine, but the exterior is really ruined by the ugly huge grille in front.

With the M Sport suspension, this 4 Series handles very nicely, it is stable in corners and yet comfortable enough in most situations.

What I like
- Nice lines and overall shape
- Great handling
- Typical quality BMW interior

What I do not like
- Ugly front end
- A little low on power, will opt for a 430i instead
