BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce the brand new 4-Series Convertible next month, during the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The model in question has been already unveiled and it will replace the current 3-Series Convertible. The brand new 4-Series Convertible is based on the 4-Series Coupe and it’s coming with an improved retractable roof, which can maximize storage space in the boot. The vehicle has a 50:50 weight distribution, a lowered suspension, torque-steer-free electric power steering and improved aerodynamics.

At the time of its launch, the brand new BMW 4-Series Convertible will come with two petrol engines and one diesel, as the 428i, with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged unit, producing 242 HP, and a 435i, featuring an inline six-cylinder petrol turbocharged engine, producing a total output of 302 HP. The popular BMW 420d Convertible will use a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, producing 181 HP. All versions get the manual transmission as standard but the optional 8-speed automatic is also available for order. More details on the model will be announced in L.A., next week.
