New introduction: facelift for the BMW 4 Series family: In the footsteps of the three-series

The successful 3 Series from BMW has already had its facelift. The same improvements are now finding their way into the 4 Series family, consisting of coupé and convertible as well as the sporty M versions.

Visually, not much has changed, especially from the outside, because the BMW 4 Series looks like the previous versions of the coupe and convertible in each of its body variants. The most noticeable changes are the lighting elements, as there are new headlights at both the front and rear with changed light signatures and technical details such as matrix LED headlights and laser lights. Inside, after the revision, there is a modified instrument panel with a double display that is slightly curved towards the driver and a reduced number of buttons and switches. The driver also has the choice of whether his 4 Series BMW is covered with electric leather seats, plastic surfaces or velor fabric. The main markets for the models produced in Dingolfing from March are the USA, China and Germany.

The drive system remains three petrol and three diesel engines with four and six cylinders, which provide a range from 135 kW / 184 hp in the 420i to 275 kW / 374 hp in the BMW M440i xDrive. Depending on the engine variant, the power is transmitted either to the rear axle or to all four drive wheels and all models have an eight-speed automatic transmission. From the medium drive variant 430i / 430d onwards there are only all-wheel drive versions. A 48-volt electrical system ensures reduced consumption, with the 140 kW / 190 hp / 400 Nm BMW 420d Coupé being the most efficient variant with a standard consumption of 4.8 liters per 100 kilometers. If the M versions of the M440d and M440i are not sporty enough for you, you can also opt for the top models of the BMW M4, which will also be available in March. The base price of the upgraded BMW M4 Coupé is 96,000 euros, while the M4 Competition Cabrio M xDrive costs at least 111,800 euros.
