BMW 4 Series M440i review: see how quick it is to 60mph!
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for Mat to review one of the most controversial cars BMW has EVER released… Introducing the all-new 4 Series!
When it comes to the exterior design, there no denying that it’s eye-catching, even when you’re looking away from the huge grille up front! As for under the bonnet, well if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on the top-of-the-range M440i (like we’ve got here), you’ll be treated to 374hp thanks to the 3-litre straight-six turbo petrol that you've got upfront.
So it’s got the power, and it’s got the looks (if you don’t mind what’s happening up front, of course)… But can it really compete with the Mercedes C-Class Coupe or Audi A5? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

    I'm a BMW loyalist, wouldn't buy any other brand; with the exception of TOYOTA. I think the pair of lungs for a grill is a negative!!! I'm not buying any model with that hideous look. Here I come TOYOTA if they change the grill of the 3 or 5. A big fan of your reviews Mat!!!! keep up the good work.

    8:28... well.. that's why it's called the M440i... duh! couldn't be any bigger, it would ruin the naming

    M engine also made from plastic or not? 😃

  • Sweetness

    Not sure why so much hate. Great looking car but would definitely prefer a different color and scrap the hideous black rims

  • LyricalWax

    Have to admit, it does look quite good in black.. but only because that hides the grill. I think that's the only colour that would work, and in M-Sport trim.

    The look is actually growing on me. And if you take the interior into account, it’s the best interior among bmw, Audi, and Mercedes. I don’t like the virtual buttons on the new Audi, and I hate the only Mercedes that looks good are the last gen s class and e class.

    It’s almost as if the BMW designers wanted to take the year 2020 and emphasize it into a new front Grill design..... Horrific

    idk what to say but i actually like the new looks of the 4 series i mean the grille it s not that ugly it is just that you are not used to seeing it because it is a new concept so just move one and start loving the car because it is amazing and i am not a bmw fanboy, i prefer audis

    100% prefer the old one. I have a 2018 440 m performance, 2 more years on the lease and not planning on getting the new one. I have had bmw’s for 14yrs think it might be time to try another German car maker. I won’t pay top dollar for a car that doesn’t make me happy to look at it. Sad really, way to murder customer loyalty:(

    People keep vomiting what they hear other “journalists” say about the car. As pointed out in the video, this is probably a closer a design to the original grilles used in classic bmw’s than the grille people are begging bmw to bring back.


    Looks like a mustang. Not that it's bad, but it looks like a mustang. I much prefer my E93 2012

    The front end is hideous, clearly aimed at the Chinese market, the digital instrument panel looks cheap. So pleased I purchased a 2019/20 model 440i and saved a lot of money.

    In that colour, that grille is actually growing on me. Maybe if the top was lower so it matched the line of the lights it would look better but I really dont hate it anymore. Think when I start seeing them on the road I'll know but I think it will grow on me.
