If feels relatively conservative but the 4 Series has a very accomplished interior

While the exterior may be grabbing headlines, the 4 Series' interior is virtually identical to the 3 Series. It's relatively traditional, then, but BMW's latest digital technology is impressive, so there's no shortage of gadgets.

BMW 4 Series dashboard

Unlike a Tesla Model 3 or Polestar 2, the 3 Series still has a pretty conventional dashboard layout. The driver sits behind an instrument binnacle, while a horizontal infotainment screen is perched on top of the driver-focused dashboard and air vents. While it seems to be an EV trend to create a feeling of space, the 3 Series goes the opposite way, cocooning the driver and passenger between a chunky centre console.

Equipment

Unlike its predecessor, the latest 4 Series range starts in M Sport trim - previously a Sport version was available. Sports seats, a performance body styling kit and 18-inch wheels are standard, along with an 8.8-inch infotainment screen that's compatible with Android Auto for the first time, along with Apple CarPlay. Owners can connect remotely to their 4 Series, and connected features include real-time traffic information and software updates.

Options

The biggest news here is the arrival of a new 'M Sport Pro' package that adds features like 19-inch alloy wheels, M Sport brakes, a rear spoiler, black door mirror caps and the choice of three exclusive paint colours.

Upgrading to the Live Cockpit Professional setup adds a 12.3-inch digital instrument display (instead of the standard 5.1-inch item), a 10.25-inch infotainment display and a head-up display. Long-distance drivers may also appreciate the Driving Assistant Professional package, which uses front-facing cameras and radar to help steer the car in its lane and follow the speed of traffic.
