BMW reveals coupe version of the 3 Series with a new nomenclature system
After revealing the Concept 4 Series Coupe late last year, BMW now officially reveals the production version of its 4 Series Coupe. It marks the beginning of BMW's new era of coupes that goes in line with the larger 6 and 8 series Coupes.
The BMW 4 Series, once offered, will be available in both as a 428i and a 435i model that features BMW's 240 hp Twin Power Turbo 2.0-liter and the 300 hp Twin Power Turbo 3.0-liter engines respectively. Both will be available with a standard eight-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Choice of rear-wheel drive or BMW's xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system will also be offered.
The new BMW 4 Series is visibly larger and sits lower than the outgoing 3 Series Coupe. It's design resembles the 3 Series Range like the signature double-kidney grille, round headlamps, and large air intakes in the front, but new to the 4 Series are the 'Air Breathers' that are positioned at the back of the front wheel arches that helps reduce drag.
Both the interior and exterior can be individualized by choosing between three different model lines, the Sport, Luxury and the M Sport Line.
