Available as a coupe ($43,395 with destination) or hardtop convertible ($51,545), the 430i retains last year’s new turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system is available as a $2,000. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard, but rear-drive models can get a six-speed manual as a no-cost option.
All 430i models start out with power front seats with driver memory, a sunroof, a rearview camera, adaptive xenon headlights, HD radio, and 18-inch wheels. The no-cost Essentials Package tacks on keyless ignition, satellite radio, and front and rear parking sensors. The popular Premium Package ($2,300) rounds out the 430i with navigation, expanded instrumentation, and heated front seats with adjustable lumbar support. Models so equipped can get genuine leather seats for $1,450.
