BMW has rewritten the script for 2014, as the ever-popular 3-Series becomes a sedan-only lineup, while coupes and convertibles gain a new moniker: the 4-Series.
2016,The all-new 4-Series is larger cars overall than the 3-Series, with an increased wheelbase and wider stance but also a lower profile. Clean, flowing exterior lines carry on the BMW design language, while trademark elements like the twin kidney bean grille and Hoffmeister Kink at the C-pillar base further the marque's illustrious history. The 4-Series also has the lowest center of gravity of any BMW, making it one of the most athletic series in the range.
2016,Two 4-Series trim levels are offered, covering both the coupe and convertible: the 428i and the 435i. The 428i comes powered by a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that produces 240-horsepower, while the 435i features a turbocharged 3.0L inline-6 engine delivering 300 horsepower. Standard on both cars is an 8-speed automatic transmission, though a 6-speed manual is a no-cost option. Both cars come standard with rear-wheel drive but can be equipped with BMW's capable xDrive all-wheel-drive system.
2016,4-Series coupes and convertibles come very nicely equipped with Star Spoke alloy wheels, adaptive Xenon headlights with auto-leveling, halogen fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 8-way power front seats with driver's side memory, a split fold-down rear seat, burled walnut wood trim, automatic climate control, a multi-function sport steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, iDrive, and more. Driving features include dynamic cruise control, stability control, traction control, brake fade compensation and dynamic brake control.
2016,The convertible features a 3-piece power retractable hardtop, which takes just 20 seconds to cycle. The top features advanced soundproofing via a "noise-absorbing" headliner, which ensures a quiet, comfortable ride in all weather conditions.
2016,Nearly limitless options allow for total personalization of the 4-Series. Chief among them are Luxury Line, Sport Line and M Line. Luxury Line adds different alloy wheels, a choice of alternative wood trims with metal inlays and a choice of leather seating. Sport Line adds a choice high-gloss black, brushed aluminum, or anthracite wood trim black and improved seating surfaces. Finally, M Line offers an aerodynamic kit, M steering wheel, sport seats, added exterior color choices and high-performance M suspension.
2016,Other packages include a Cold Weather Pack, with heated seats and steering wheel, a Technology Package, with touchpad navigation, improved instrumentation, head-up display, and BMW apps and a Dynamic Handling Package, with variable sport steering and adaptive M suspension.
