An Estoril Blue F32 BMW 4 Series was showcased at the ongoing Goodwood Festival of Speed. The variant that has been showcased is the 435i, complete with the M Sport body kit.
The new BMW 4 series cars will go on sale later this year and would be a replacement for the 3 series two door body variants.
A quick comparison between the production spec 4 Series and the Concept 4 series Coupe shows that most of the design bits have been retained. The major difference between the two is easily highlighted at the rear end with the production version chucking away those grills over the twin exhausts for a more cleaner sweeping bumper but thankfully retaining the angry upswept tail lights.
The BMW 4 Series is a part of BMW’s plans to plug in all the gaps in its current lineup of cars by offering new body variants of the existing cars with more features and at a higher price. The new nomenclature has been done in such a way that all the 4 door sedans get odd numbered series names and the Gran Coupe/ Coupe/ Cabriolet get even numbered series names.
The car will go on sale in two petrol variants- 428i and 435i. The entry level 428i gets a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder motor and the 435i gets a more powerful turbo straight six cylinder engine. The sole diesel variant will be christened as the 420d. The 450bhp M4 coupe will come next year.
The M Sport package comes with of an aero kit which consists of sportier bumpers and more stylish and bigger “sport line’ alloy wheels. The insides get get a different upholstery and faux aluminium inserts on the dashboard.
And we are in love with the Estoril Blue paint job!
