2016 BMW 435 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The BMW 4 Series replaced the previous-generation 3 Series coupe and convertible models in 2014. Power comes from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the 428i, and from 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. BMW also offers the high-performance M4 and a 4 Series Gran Coupe, a four-door model with coupelike styling.

My First BMW

This car exceeded all of my expectations! It is an M-Sport and has the optional M-Power package and is a mini M4! Fun to drive, hardtop convertible for those summer afternoons and has all the features of a modern BMW.


Purchased Experience

Very good service and affordable prices. Usually, I don't feel comfortable at auto shops because I am a woman and I feel they want to take advantage of that, but this shop is fair, affordable and good service. Thank you Ava auto


This does everything and will make you smile!

Pros: - hardtop convertible is perfect - excellent engine, steering, suspension, and brakes - fantastic options like HUD, warm-air neck vents, 360 parking view - they got the looks right, this car turns heads Cons: - trunk space/access could be easier, but honestly it's better than 90% of convertibles - should have been offered with a manual transmission
