Design, Practicality and Boot Space

If James Bond was German, I'd say there's a good chance he'd drive the M4 Convertible. It really does look the part, including BMW's iconic kidney front grille, a creased body, and large alloy wheels. With the roof up, it looks a bit sportier, but retract the roof, and you'll see the definition of a summer car. 

The M4 Convertible is classed as a four-seater, but it's better suited to being a two-seater. There's plenty of space for two adults in the front, however, rear passenger space is limited, especially with the roof down. However, this is expected for a convertible sports car, and there's certainly more room in the rear than the 911 Carrera Cabriolet and Lexus LC Convertible

Boot space comes in at 370 litres with the roof up and 270 litres with the roof folded down. This is pretty good for a convertible sports car, and there are a few handy features, such as a button under the boot lid that lifts the folded top out of the way so you can access items underneath. 

Interior and Trims

Inside, the M4 Convertible is nicely put together, simple, and stylish. The dashboard is driver-oriented and is easy to use when driving, and features a range of premium materials such as soft-touch plastics and a leather steering wheel.  

The M4 Convertible comes with loads of tech as standard. Centrally mounted on the dashboard is a 10.3-inch infotainment system with a DAB radio, wireless phone charging, sat-nav, and smartphone mirroring. As always with BMW, it's a great system to use and can be operated via a rotary controller in between the front seats. 

You also get a 12.3-inch digital instrument display behind the steering wheel, which is complemented by a head-up display which places all the required information in your line of sight. 

Just one trim level is available for the M4 Convertible, the M4 Competition M. 

It comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, LED lights, automatic three-zone air conditioning, an M leather steering wheel, heated front seats, two large displays, a head-up display, adaptive M suspension, and front and rear parking sensors. 

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, you get a 3.0-litre straight six petrol engine that comes with four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic gearbox. It comes with a power output of 510hp and shoots from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds, but we'd expect this to be a little slower in real time thanks to the extra 150kg added by the roof.  

It's worth noting that you get an official fuel economy of 27mpg, which is unrealistic when on the road, so expect to be filling up pretty frequently.  

BMW M4 Convertible interior

The M4 Convertible delivers an exhilarating driving experience with its powerful engine, precise handling, and agile body. Its all-wheel drive configuration, combined with an optional rear-wheel drive mode, offers versatile performance for different driving preferences. 

Handling is undoubtedly the M4 Convertible's standout feature, and when combined with its sport suspension, it really is great fun to drive on a country road. When cruising at low speeds, the M4 Convertibles ride is a bit too firm for our liking, but these are the sacrifices you make when leasing a sports car.  

When on the road, you can raise or lower the roof at speeds of up to 31mph, which is handy for the unpredictable British weather.
