2021 BMW M440i Review // The Scariest 4-Series Ever

17. okt.. 2020
946 982 Ganger

This is the 2021 BMW 4 Series, in its M440i trim. It hits 100km/h in about 4.5 seconds and costs as tested, $75,000 Canadian. Not cheap, but its the price you pay for BMW's latest and greatest 3-series adjacent sports coupe. But does it offer Ultimate Driving Machine thrills? Watch to find out. Subscribe!
A huge thank you to BMW Grand River for loaning us the car and for supplying Thomas with parts for his broken BMW's over the years. Find them here! www.bmwgrandriver.com/

  • what a hideous looking car

  • M D The problem is globalization. No doubt BMW employs many, many metrosexuals and asiatics. This is global design, not European design. It’s not so much the grill. It’s that the rest of the car doesn’t relate to the grill. The grill is at least bold, while the rest is so weak as to be completely forgettable. The roofline is rounded, the Hofmeister Kink is missing, the rear is better than the rest of the car but is visually disconnected from it. The car has no lines and is bulbous. It looks like an insect. It’s hideous. And notice how poor the outward visibility is with those narrow rear-quarter windows sans-Hofmeister Kink. Exceptional outward visibility has always been a BMW strength, bringing light into the cabin and increasing road awareness. And if you look at the upcoming 2-series it’s almost as bad: cheap-looking, multi-sided grill; no Hofmeister Kink; tacky. The current BMW line-up has the potential to destroy BMW. To weaken sales and image so drastically that a buyout results, which simply prolongs rather than prevents death. I fear for BMW’s future.

  • I think over time the big grille will grow on me. Hopefully the aftermarket will come up with ways to disguise portions of it. At least the big grille isn't anywhere near as offensive as the Bangle era designs.

  • 100% prefer the old one. I have a 2018 440 m performance, 2 more years on the lease and not planning on getting the new one. I have had bmw’s for 14yrs think it might be time to try another German car maker. I won’t pay top dollar for a car that doesn’t make me happy to look at it. Sad really, way to murder customer loyalty:(

  • Nothing in the design of the 4 series actually shouts BMW at you. The Hofmeister kink is not present and it has no shoulder line. In fact, from the sides and rear, it could be anything. Unfortunately, the one design element that does scream BMW is hideous - that grille - which still looks to me like someone pressing their bare arse against a window. They haven't even made any effort to style it in with the rest of the car.

  • @Tshifhiwa Filbert Dzhaudzhau this has been going on for years and is a serious disappointment to true BMW owners and fans, the car is hideous and I dont just speak for myself but for the money this is beyond getting used to. These cars have been getting even more hideous as time goes on so no. We are not getting used to it. GREAT comment Mr. Calisto Rivera I really hope BMW design engineer Adrian van Hooydonk , gets this feedback

  • I agree. BMW has been making almost all their vehicles with a more "blan" or "softer" appearance for the past 5 years or so. For example, the 2013 X5 with the wide tires and sport package had a much more bold look than the 2014 X5. The 2019 tried to recapture some of the bold look but the overall package doesn't work for me. Even the 550i is more blan, and softer than the previous generations. Then when they started increasing the size of the kidney grill, it does tend to add an ugly factor along with the blan and softer lines. Very Sad! And don't forget their higher prices. The 2021 M440i is $68,000

  • T he only scary thing about the car is the styling, those drain cover grilles and the bumper intakes must have come from Walmart car accessories, yes it got more power than the older model, but most of that is sapped by the X drive and the extra weight. I guess the Chinese will love its front end. The older model was a very elegant looking car, I am so glad I purchased a 2020 model 440i.

  • So, to summarize the M440i: o bland-styled, bordering on ugly; o automatic transmission (instead of clutch pedal manual) only; o gasoline, instead of diesel engine; o too heavy to be competitive with the Camaro ZL1 / ZL1 1LE on the race track; o too expensive to compete with the Camaro ZL1 / ZL1 1LE, the Challenger Hellcat, the Charger Hellcat, or the Mustang GT 350; o too slow to be competitive with the Camaro or the Mustang on the drag strip; o not priced to be competitive with either the Mustang GT350, the Challenger Hellcat, the Charger Hellcat, or the Camaro ZL1 / ZL1 1LE; o electronics-laden, full of gimmicks; o expensive to maintain; o hard to wrench on. I will watch the long term ownership space of the M440i and how reliable it will be, respectively how well it will hold up after ten and then 20 years; I will also observe with great interest, how much of its original manufacturer suggested retail price it will lose after ten, and how much after 20 years...

  • Tbh. I like the design of the front, however I don´t like at all how the design is implemented into the car. The huge plastic bar right in the middle which is supposed to hold the front sign as well as sensors etc. just ruins it for me but I am sure a couple of aftermarket companies will try to fix that. I´d prefer a side mounted sign and more of the purity of maybe that 3.0 CSL Hommage car. (dang that one looks good)

  • I see a lot of comments about the grille. I am not for, or against it. However, if we were to look through the history of car design, we may notice that car grilles shrunk a heck of a lot, in the last half of the 20th century. I just think that the grille could be designed with a little more refinement. However, on the positive side, I do appreciate how these designers (Audi, Toyota, etc., included), are attempting to bring back a little of that vintage look in their cars.
