Marking the beginning of a new era for coupes at BMW, the all new BMW 4 Series Coupe was launched as the latest generation of BMW's sporty mid-sized coupes. The new BMW 4 Series Coupe embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe will be offered as both a 428i, featuring BMW's award-winning TwinPower Turbo 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine and as a 435i with the multi-award winning TwinPower Turbo 3.0 liter inline six. They will be available with a standard 8-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission. They will also be offered with a choice of rear wheel drive or with optional xDrive, BMW's intelligent all-wheel drive system.
The BMW 4 Series Coupe is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the BMW 3 Series Coupe and its stretched silhouette sits considerably lower to the road. Together with its BMW short overhangs, long hood and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, give the BMW 4 Series Coupe a visual balance.
The front end features its characteristic BMW designs such as the double-kidney grille, four round headlights and a large air intake in the front apron which displays its family ties with the BMW 3 Series. New elements of the BMW 4 series Coupe are the air breathers positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches to reduce drag. With the muscular wheel arches and wide track, the Coupe displays an aggressive stance.
The interior of the BMW 4 Series Coupe incorporates sporty styling and pure quality together. In the front of the cabin, an approach known as layering gives the cabin a driver orientation without excluding the front passenger. All the controls central to driving are arranged ergonomically around the driver providing ready access to all functions. Automatic seat belt valets, a Sport steering wheel, circular instruments in black-panel look and the free-standing, flat-screen iDrive monitor give a sense of functional elegance. The iDrive Controller – properly located for easy reach on the center console – and the armrest between the front seats give the cabin usability and comfort. The dynamic horizontal lines of the instrument panel extend into the optional two-tone door and side panel trim, wrapping around the driver and front passenger. In the rear compartment, contoured seats bring the sportiness of the 4 Series Coupe to all passengers. Recessed head restraints and continuously molded side supports give the rear bench the appearance of two separate seats.
In the rear compartment, contoured seats continue the sporty theme of the BMW 4 Series Coupe. Recessed head restraints and broad, continuously molded side supports give the rear bench the appearance of two individual seats. High-grade material combinations and finish quality accentuate the premium feel of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe. Customers can choose the Sport or Luxury Lines as alternatives to standard specification. M Sport is another alternative. All three allow visible individualization of the car’s exterior and interior appearance.
In addition to its sporty driving dynamics, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe offers outstanding fuel efficiency. This is a result of the BMW Efficient Dynamics development strategy, which can be found in almost every aspect of the new model. The car’s lightweight construction and aerodynamic features – headlined by the groundbreaking Air Curtains and Air Breathers – also help to maximize efficiency. At its core, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe has been engineered for performance excellence, while other features including Auto Start-Stop and on-demand operation of ancillary units help lower fuel consumption and emissions as well. Use of ECO PRO mode gives the potential to cut fuel use by as much as 20 percent.
