2018 BMW 440i
The 2018 BMW 4 Series is one of the most popular luxury cars on the market today. If you’re searching for a new luxury small car near Arlington, Dallas, or Fort Worth, you may be considering it already. One of the most seductive trims is the 440i, and we at BMW of Arlington are here to tell you all about it.
2018 440i: Performance Specs
The 2018 440i is one of three 4 Series trims (the other two being the 430i and the high-performance M4), and it has its own engine to go along with it. The 3.0L turbocharged I-6 engine under the hood can produce up to 320 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque, making for impressive acceleration on the highway and plenty of high-end power.
The 440i comes standard with sporty rear-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is available for increased traction. Looking for a nimble, agile ride? Test drivers have found that the 440i’s sharp, responsive steering and fleet-footed handling (results of the car’s Variable Sport Steering) perfect for tackling twisty roads.
Advanced Technology Features
As far as infotainment, whether you choose the base system or the upgrade, you’ll be getting a lot. A 6.5-inch display screen comes standard in the base BMW iDrive system, as do features like Bluetooth®, helping you stream audio or make hands-free calls from behind the wheel.
The available upgrade expands the display screen to 8.8 inches, and a touchscreen controller replaces the knob controls of the base system. You’ll also get Apple CarPlay™, letting you send texts, manage contacts, and more by plugging in your compatible iPhone.
It doesn’t end there: With optional BMW Navigation, you can get easy-to-follow directions and maps to your destination. Make your drive less of a hassle and much more stress-free.
Driver-Assistive Safety Features
The 2018 440i comes standard with a rearview camera, to help you see what’s going on behind you when you need to back up. The list of available safety features is quite extensive and includes an available Head-Up Display, which can display speed limit information (as well as your current speed) conveniently on the windshield.
Adaptive Cruise Control is another helpful optional feature. It lets you maintain a pre-set following interval between you and the car in front of you. Just program the distance, and your car will slow down or speed up as needed to keep pace. For highway driving, Adaptive Cruise Control is handy to have around.
