2015 BMW 435 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The BMW 4 Series replaced the previous-generation 3 Series coupe and convertible models last year. Power comes from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the 428i or a turbocharged six-cylinder in the 435i. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are available, and competitors include the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

For 2015, BMW has added a performance-oriented M4 coupe and the 4 Series Gran Coupe, a four-door model with coupelike styling. They are covered in separate reports in the Cars.com Research section.

New for 2015

FUN! A hard top convertible cannot be beat.

Quick, classy and fun. Makes you feel good every time you start it. There are cars that do many things better, but as a package it cannot be beat.

First BMW

I have driven BMWs in the past, so I knew what I wanted when seeking a replacement vehicle. The 435i convertible is a perfect fit for my driving style and circumstances. Performance is unbeatable at this price point, and dealer service is tops.

4.7

Handles great and trouble free

Perfect car for empty nesters that like to travel. No problems ever, enjoy the engine’s power and smoothness. Great roadholding but if you drive it in the snow - invest in snow tires!
