BMW 4 Series

Overall rating: 90.93%

It says a lot about the BMW 4 Series that a premium executive coupe tops this category. You’d be right to think that owners rank its driving manner very highly, but what’s surprising is they rate the ease of driving even more. That was a big factor in pushing this BMW to the top step.

Owners tell us they are also very impressed with the build quality of the BMW and its reliability, which helps to offset repair costs and fuel economy that don’t score quite as strongly as some others. The fact that the 4 Series comes as a coupe, a convertible and as the four-door Gran Coupe, only adds to its appeal.
