After much waiting, it's finally here.

Asian Carmakers Corporation (ACC), the official importer and distributor of BMW cars in the Philippines, launched the all new BMW 4 Series Coupe last night at AutoAllee BMW in EDSA. The 4 Series coupe takes over the mantle of the 3 Series coupe of previous generations.

“This 2014, we usher in a new era of Joy with the launch of the BMW 4 Series Coupe.” said Maricar Parco, ACC President “With its powerful road presence and stand out dynamic ability, this coupe is one of the sportiest vehicles in the current BMW line-up, setting a new standard for the segment. Similar to its predecessor, the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupe, the 4 Series Coupe gives out an abundance of sheer driving pleasure that is unmistakably BMW. ”

Compared to the previous BMW 3 Series Coupe, the BMW 4 Series Coupe has a longer wheelbase, a significantly wider track and rides on new 19” alloy wheels. BMW‘s typically short overhangs, long bonnet and roofline give the 4 Series an illusion of motion even when standing still as BMW states. A new element to this model is the Air Breather on each side of the fender, which effectively reduces drag.

The new 4 Series Coupe offers a driver centric interior, fusing 'sporting allure and exclusive elegance'. Central driving controls have been ergonomically placed on the steering wheel with a center console that is angled 7 degrees towards the driver. The seats have been contoured to provide plenty of support along with a thick three spoke steering wheel to emphasize the vehicle’s sporty nature.

For vehicle dynamics, the 4 Series Coupe (initially made available as the 420d) has various improvements in steering accuracy, precision and agility. The new 4 Series Coupe incorporates sophisticated chassis technology, 50:50 weight distribution, fine-tuning in the wind tunnel and an innovative lightweight construction concept create what BMW calls a new standard for sporting performance.

At the heart of the 4 Series Coupe is an inline four-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engine, with a maximum output of 184 PS and 380 Nm of torque. It is mated to an eight-speed sport automatic transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that give the driver a pleasurable experience as expected from BMW.
