2017 BMW 430 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

What it is: The BMW 4 Series debuted for 2014 as a replacement for the previous-generation 3 Series coupe and convertible. The 4 Series also includes the high-performance M4 and 4 Series Gran Coupe, a four-door model with coupe like styling.

Power comes from turbocharged four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, and rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

New for 2017
Two new engines bring more power and new model nomenclature. A 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder replaces a turbo 2.0-liter that had 240 hp, and the model designation changes from 428i to 430i. Six-cylinder models have a new 320-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine, replacing a 300-hp six-cylinder of the same size, and these models are now designated 440i instead of 435i. Wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are new options.
Significant Standard Features

  • Power-adjustable seats
  • Split-folding rear seat
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Bluetooth and USB connectivity

  • Required in every new car: front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system

Significant Available Features

  • 248-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (430i)
  • 320-hp, turbocharged six-cylinder engine (440i)

  • Rear- or all-wheel drive

Experience with my 2017 BMW 4

I purchased my 2017 in 2020. It’s Upgraded wheel package really does wonders for its look/stance. Not a single problem after 3 years and no records of any previous problems. Looks, drives and feels brand new. Everyone loves it. It handle’s fantastic, very smooth ride and nothing but basic maintenance (I’m a little OCD on vehicle maintenance anyway, it pays off). I don’t drive it like a 16 yr old might. I take care of it. I don’t drive it hard. The worst of these that I’ve seen are from owners that rag them out. A good inspection, up on a lift, exposes a lot. You treat it well, it will do the same for you. Before buying I did my homework with Carfax info, maintenance history, previous vehicle location, called prior servicing dealership listed on Carfax and it’s surprising what they can tell you about a car they maintained, dealership gains nothing by misguiding me bc it wasn’t being sold by them. They just confirmed the facts from their service records which was even more than Carfax had actually. Also found a BMW mechanic that I paid $100 to check it out, front to back, before buying it and he had nothing but good to say about it. He did said “I’d grab this one”. I don’t know if I will ever be able to let it go. Did have a BMW recall, went to dealership and out in 1 hour, n/c and they also did a complimentary full check up. They didn’t find anything wrong and asked if I wanted to sell it. That was a big NO. I have neighbors keeping an eye on it, waiting to hear that I’m trading it in so they can buy it. Love it.
