BMW is on a roll this year. Their 3 Series is all-new, they refreshed the 5 Series, and also upgraded their crossover range. Just about every model they sell these days came fresh from a redesign, apart from a few models. One of those is the 4 Series. But in a matter of days, that will all change.
The all-new 4 Series will be making its debut this Thursday, June 4. By the looks of things, BMW is sticking to their guns by keeping that big kidney grill from the concept shown last year. It's the first of the BMW cars to have this kind of grill treatment.
It's difficult to make out the rest of the car but one can say that looks nothing like its predecessor. For the second-generation 4 Series, BMW made an effort to further differentiate it from the 3 Series sedan and wagon as well. The aforementioned grill aside, the headlights and LED light signature have a different shape from its more practical stablemate.
There are no interior photos for now, but BMW can take two routes for the cabin's design. The first way is simply using the 3 Series' dash and fit it to the coupe. But if BMW wants to set this car apart from the sedan and wagon, there is a possibility that it will come with a different interior. However, it does seem more likely that the 3 Series dash will be adapted for the 4 Series.
If we were to look at the 3 and 5 Series and ranges, we could see a variety of turbocharged four and six-cylinder engines under the hood. Since the soon to be outgoing 4 Series came with turbodiesels, the upcoming model might have that option too. However, it is yet to be known if the 4 Series will come with a hybrid or plug-in hybrid option.
More information about the car will be released once it makes its debut. Once it's out, don't expect it to be sitting in local dealerships immediately. It will be Europe that will be getting the car first, and the rest of the world will follow in the coming months.
