This year marks the debut of the 2015 M4 coupe and convertible, and the new 4 Series Gran Coupe. The former models pack a roaring 425-horsepower engine and other performance upgrades, while the latter is a 4-door model with more cargo room and space for more passengers.
BMW didn't just slap a number 4 on a carryover 3 Series that happened to have two doors. The new 4 Series features fresh aesthetics inside and out, powertrains boasting 8-speed automatic transmissions, and the lowest center of gravity of any vehicle in BMW's lineup.
The 2014 BMW 4 Series is an all-new model but a familiar concept – it's essentially the replacement for 2-door versions of the 3 Series. The new nomenclature sets the 4 Series coupe and convertible apart from the growing variety of 3 Series models, and numerically aligns it with other 2-door BMWs such as the current 6 Series and new 2 Series. Slightly larger than the outgoing 3 Series coupe, the 4 Series boasts sleeker sheet metal, a more tech-rich cabin, and a new base engine – BMW's potent-yet-efficient 4-cylinder. An optional 6-cylinder remains for those seeking more power. Like the Audi A5, Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe and Infiniti Q60, the 4 Series blends performance and refinement to go with its $40,000-plus starting price.

"Have had the car for awhile and can't really say enough about its quality and style. Only negative is everyone tries to race you even around town. Love all the options that were available and find the head-up display to be a favorite along with all the other tech features. Beautiful exterior and interior lighting at night. More comfortable than I thought it would be with run-flat tires and low suspension. Good feel for the road but it doesn't beat you up when you are driving. Prepare to be blown back in your seat when you accelerate and cornering is phenomenal with the low center of gravity. Car is expensive but is worth it compared to other sport coupe options."
