The much publicized BMW 4 Series coupe has been spotted on public roads during its video shoot for the TVC. The new 4 series is expected to be launched later this year and would replace the 3 series coupe and convertible.
On comparing the production spec version with the 4 series Coupe concept, it can be made out that most of the design bits of the concept have been retained. However, the rear of the production spec car definitely marks a departure from the concept model. The production model doesn’t sport the grills above the twin exhausts and the bumper is a cleaner unit.
As we have been saying all this while, the BMW 4 Series is a part of BMW’s plans to plug in all the gaps in its product portfolio by coming up with new body variants of its existing cars. The new models will offer more in terms of features and will hence retail at a higher price.
The new nomenclature for BMW cars has been planned 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 new car is expected to come in two engine variants- 428i that would be powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine and 435i that would get more powerful turbo straight six cylinder engine. The 4 Series coupe and convertible will be later joined by the M4 coupe and cabriolet.
The upcoming Bimmer will take on the likes of Mercedes Benz E-Class Coupe and the Audi A5 & S5.
