The compact body of the coupe and convertible allow for sportier performance and handling than the sedan. However, if you're looking to sting like a bee and float like a butterfly, the BMW 4 Series and BMW 5 Series are great options that will have you zooming around every twist and turn.

On Your Mark! Get Set! Go!

On the topic of sportier performance, the BMW 4 Series and BMW 5 Series are speed demons not to be messed with. As we previously mentioned, the BMW 4 Series body styles make for a light-as-a-feather boxer combined with a bodybuilder performance.

Both vehicles offer available xDrive all-wheel drive systems to make these BMW vehicles all-terrain beasts. However, it's their difference in engine performance that sets them apart. The 4 Series 2.0-liter engine outputs 255 horsepower and 294 lb-ft of torque, while the 5 Series 2.0-liter engine produces 248 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque.
