At launch the 4 Series Convertible range will consist of two petrol engines and one diesel engine choice, available across five different trim levels. The range is characterized by a marked increase in the standard equipment level offered.

The new BMW 435i Convertible heads up the range with its straight-six petrol engine with instantaneous power delivery, refinement and efficiency. Equipped with High Precision Direct Injection and Valvetronic fully variable valve control, the 3.0-litre engine with an aluminium crankcase develops a maximum output of 306hp between 5,800 and 6,000rpm, and peak torque of 400Nm is generated from as low as 1,200rpm through to 5,000rpm. The new BMW 435i Convertible can sprint from zero to 62mph in just 5.6 seconds, on the way to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. Even so, the average fuel consumption is from 34.9mpg and CO2 emissions from 190g/km. The car is even more economical when fitted with the optional eight-speed Sport automatic gearbox, achieving a combined fuel consumption of just 37.7mpg, while CO2 emissions are down to 176g/km.

The new BMW 428i Convertible is defined by the spirited power delivery, impressive torque, high maximum revs and low weight of its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine. As much as 245hp is produced from 5,000–6,500rpm, and peak torque of 350Nm is available between 1,250-4,800rpm. This equates to a zero to 62mph dash in 6.4 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155mph, while the average fuel consumption stands at just 41.5mpg, and CO2 emissions are only 159g/km. The optional eight-speed Sport automatic gearbox also opens up further potential for fuel savings: combined fuel consumption of 42.8mpg and CO2 emissions of just 154g/km.

The diesel engine choice at launch is the new BMW 420d Convertible. It uses the latest-generation four-cylinder diesel engine with composite aluminium crankcase, latest-generation common-rail direct injection technology, a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry and precise solenoid valve injectors, ensuring instantaneous throttle response with extremely low fuel consumption and emissions. With a maximum output of 184hp at 4,000rpm and peak torque reaching 380Nm between 1,750-2,750rpm, it’s no surprise the car can sprint from zero to 62mph in just 8.2 seconds and accelerate up to 146mph if required. Average fuel consumption stands at 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 133g/km. With the optional eight-speed Sport automatic gearbox combined fuel consumption falls to 58.9mpg and CO2 emissions to 127g/km.

A six-speed manual gearbox is standard in the new BMW 4 Series Convertible. Alternatively, customers can specify an eight-speed automatic gearbox that adjusts to a wide range of driving styles and offers manual gear changes via paddles on the steering wheel.
