The 2017 BMW 4 Series' sleek exterior promises driving excitement, and the car largely delivers — at least the models with the old engines did. Last year's 428i delivered remarkably punchy and quick acceleration, along with an engaging engine and exhaust note that would have you randomly downshifting just for fun. We expect the revised engine, 8 horsepower richer, to be even better.
The 440i's engine gets an even bigger boost, up 20 horsepower and 30 lb-ft of torque, and will perhaps address our primary criticism of last year's six-cylinder model: It wasn't all that much faster or better than the four-cylinder.
Transmissions haven't changed, and the available six-speed manual transmission is bound to please traditionalists with its buttery feel through the gates. The eight-speed automatic works exceptionally well in both full-auto mode and manual mode via the paddle shifters. Either way, the refinement is hard to top. One annoyance, however, is the gruff restart nature of the automatic engine start-stop function, though it can be disabled.
When the road bends, the 4 Series is marvelously balanced, immediately instilling driver confidence with its firmly planted feel. The steering is very precise, though it lacks the detailed feedback that used to set BMW apart. Some might find the ride quality overly firm, but the Track Handling package's electronically adjustable adaptive suspension nearly erases road imperfections while further boosting the car's stability.WE PREFER OUR CUSTOMERS TO DO RESEARCH AND ASK US AS MANY QUESTIONS AS THEY LIKE AND WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO GIVE YOU AS MUCH INFORMATION SO YOU CAN MAKE THE BEST DECISION.
