Interior Space in the 2017 BMW 4 Series

Built to offer a driver-centric experience the 2017 BMW 4 Series interior will please anyone in the driver’s seat while being capable but not entirely comfortable for passengers. The front power seats are positioned in the 4 Series a little lower than people may be accustomed to if they have driven in the 5 Series Sedan, which leads to a distinct and sporty experience. Passengers seated in the rear seats can expect a space that will be functional for an average-sized adult and a little tight for anyone with a taller frame. The cargo space on the 2017 BMW 4 Series is competitive to other two-door vehicles. The rear seats come standard with 40/20/40 split fold-down rear-seats allowing for even more room. Both vehicles provide the confidence of a BMW but deliver much different styles. Drivers looking for an all-around reliable sedan will find comfort and luxury with the 2017 BMW 5 Series. Drivers looking for a sporty eye-turner with sharp road performance should lean towards the 2017 BMW 4 Series.
