Practicality & boot space Rating

4.5 out of 5


  • Great handling
  • Impressive engines
  • Fairly practical


  • Divisive grille
  • No plug-in yet
  • Poor rear headroom

By virtue of its swooping lines and two-door layout, the 4 Series is less practical than the BMW 3 Series but customers in the market for a sporty coupe shouldn't find it too hard to live with.  

BMW 4 Series interior space & storage

The 4 Series comes with two rear seats but anyone looking forward to hopping in the back will have to be patient as the front seat slides, rises and tilts forwards to provide a space to climb in. Mission accomplished, there's more kneeroom than you'll find in an Audi A5 coupe but headroom is less impressive - even those approaching six feet tall will feel their head touch the headlining.

Boot space

A boot volume of 440 litres sounds impressive for a svelte coupe - and it is - but the Audi A5 Coupe also manages to provide 450 litres of space. Both of these easily trump the 380 litres of room in the Mercedes C-Class Coupe. It's also worth noting that while 440-litres of space is more than a Ford Focus offers, the boot in the 4 Series is rather long and shallow, so won't always suit oddly shaped items.
