The German automaker has decided a subtle review is in order for the 4 Series family, with all models being subjected to the updates, including the range-topping high performance M4.
The revised 4 Series family has arrived and brought with itself all the siblings – Coupe, Convertible, Gran Coupe, and the powerful M4. The mid life-cycle refresh for the 4 Series is a page from the Audi book – meaning you need to be very patient or a diehard fan to spot the differences. The front end gets new full-LED headlights and all family members get at least standard LED fog lights. BMW has also reworked the graphics of the LED taillights but subtle modifications have also been detected when scanning the air intakes, rear apron and line-specific trim.
Now the facelift gets the entire 4 Series the Sunset Orange and Snapper Rocks Blue body shades, as well as new alloys for every version – Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury, and M Sport. The cabin meanwhile is treated to additional chrome accents and a high-gloss black finish on the center console, the instrument panel gets double stitching and there are three new trim strips and a trio of upholsteries. The upgrade also comes with an optional Navigation system for the Professional infotainment system with upgraded interface with big tile-style control pads and there’s also an optional customizable instrument cluster.
The 4 Series Coupe and the 4 Series Gran Coupe also get a reworked suspension and there are a total of 31 model and powertrain options – from the 184 hp (135 kW) 420i to 326 hp (240 kW) in the 440i. The diesel fence is held by the 420d with 190 hp (140 kW) and can go all the way up to the 435d xDrive packing 313 hp (230 kW). In case you order the 4 Series Gran Coupe you can also get an entry-level 418d with 150 hp (110 kW) and the xDrive all-wheel drive system will be offered on 12 model versions. The M4 and M4 Convertible get the same array of tweaks and continue to use the same powertrain with 425 hp or 444 ho if you select the Competition Package.
