Exterior wise, the 4 Series Convertible gets a three-piece retractable hardtop with a sound absorbing headliner. BMW say that this reduces wind noise by up to 2 dB compared to the older 3 Series Convertible, which the 4 Series replaces.

The roof can retract/move into position in 20 seconds at speeds up to 11 mph (18km/h). Even when you’re driving with the roof down, the 4 Convertible is equipped with three temperature neck warmers.

Powering the base variant is a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 240 bhp, while the top-end petrol is powered by a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder motor churning 300 bhp.
