BMW 420d Review by CarBuyer [Video]
text size: A- A+
Since they are located in the UK, it was only natural to test out the 420d, the most sensible and rational choice out there, compared to the petrol variants. This model though, is a bit more noisy, since it's a diesel, but it does go for longer drives thanks to the very efficient engine (around 50 mpg combined).
Inside, the car has plenty of storage options, for all kinds of bits and pieces, probably more of them than you can ever use. Compared to the 3 Series, the design is pretty similar, except for the robotic hand that hands you your seatbelt.
In the back, space is limited but, that's because it's a Coupe model. Furthermore, compared to its rivals, you'll find more comfort in the 4er. The boot is almost the same size as the one on the 3 Series and you can even get the automatic boot opener as an option.
On the road, the car feels more precise than the 3 Series and gives you a sporty feeling every time you sit in it. The Adaptive Dampers are an optional feature you should definitely get as they completely change the feel of the car.
That's enough chit-chat from us, we'll let you get to it.
