2018 BMW 4 Series: a Closer Look

BMW AG calls the new BMW 4 Series “Un4gettable.” We suppose we’ll “4give” them the quirky tagline, since this year’s models have so much to offer luxury car shoppers from Columbia and Bowie, MD. If you’re stopping by BMW of Silver Spring for a test drive or just to compare your options, here’s what’s waiting for you. 

The BMW 4 Series is two distinct models, both available in Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe body styles. 

2018 BMW 430i
Last year, this model got a powertrain overhaul that gave it a 248 horsepower / 258 lb.-ft. torque 2.0 liter inline four-cylinder engine paired to an 8-Speed Steptronic Sport Shiftable automatic transmission. This year, the 2018 BMW 430i gets a redesign to match. The front and rear are revised, the interior sports many new details, and the handling is improved by stiffer suspension, more responsive steering, and an upgraded damping algorithm. There's not as much horsepower as is available in the BMW 440i. That said, this year’s changes make for even better driving dynamics from an already very agile car.

Like its sibling, the 2018 BMW 440i gets a redesign to better differentiate it from the BMW 3 Series. It also gets the same suspension and steering upgrades, as well as an updated infotainment system and an improved dash layout.  You’ll also be treated to a higher-powered engine, this time a 320 horsepower turbocharged TwinPower inline six-cylinder engine. On either model, we suggest the Executive Package, which lets you customize the instrument display depending on the drive mode chosen. 

There’s much more to recommend both models. However, we’d much rather show you than tell you. After all, the BMW 4 Series are not virtual cars. They’re intended to be enjoyed from the driver’s seat out in the real world. To that end, visit your BMW dealership near Bowie for a test drive. BMW Silver Spring is located at 3211 Automobile Blvd.
