BMW rejuvenated its 4 Series Coupé and 4 Series Convertible, which will hit our shores in the third quarter of 2024.
The midsize luxury and sporty versions of the 4 Series boast new exterior and interior tweaks as well as spec updates.
The precisely modified exterior design of the two models underscores their dynamic character and exclusive style. New exterior paint finishes and light-alloy wheels, headlights and the now optionally available Laser light rear lights embody the latest advances in the exterior of the two models.
The differentiation between the new BMW 4 Series models and the BMW 3 Series in terms of design can be found not only in their proportions and lines, but also their distinctive front-end visuals. The bonnet, front side panels and doors and many chassis components are also made of aluminium.
A diffuser element in the lower section of the rear bumper is now painted in black high-gloss. In addition, the exhaust tailpipes, integrated into the rear apron on the left and right, have grown from 90 millimetres to 100 millimetres in diameter.
Step inside the sporting two-door models and the key new features of the cabin are immediately apparent: the revised design of the steering wheels and instrument panel, the seat coverings, the interior trim elements and the now optionally available CraftedClarity glass applications for selected controls.
Alongside the introduction of the new BMW iDrive with QuickSelect as standard, customers can now also choose to add an Augmented View Display for the BMW Maps navigation system as an option on their new BMW 4 Series.
The line-up of powertrains for the new BMW 4 Series range comprises petrol and diesel engines featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and electrification in the form of 48V mild hybrid technology.
Straight-six engines can be found under the bonnet of the M Performance versions in both model series. The line-up also includes a four-cylinder petrol engine developing 135 kW and a 140 kW four-cylinder diesel. The engine’s power is fed onto the road via either classical rear-wheel drive or the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, depending on the model variant.
All the six-cylinder in-line engines available for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible, as well as the four-cylinder diesel unit, come with 48V mild hybrid technology for sharper power delivery and greater efficiency.
The auxiliary electric drive takes the form of a 48V starter generator and generates output of 8 kW instantly available in response to the slightest movement of the accelerator.
Pricing will be made available closer to the launch date later this year.
