Our BMW 4 Series Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

The 2018, 2017 & 2016 BMW 4 Series model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 57% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 4 Series. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 25.96 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2016 4 Series model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
