BMW 4-Series to be unveiled during 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show image

The German based automaker BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce the BMW 4-Series during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September.

After the concept has been officially unveiled just a few months ago, BMW is now getting ready to pull the wraps off the final production version of the 4-Series later on this year, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. The model is set to replace the current BMW 3-Series Coupe and it will also come as the 4-Series Convertible, a 4-Series Gran Coupe and as the most expected version yet, the M4.

“In the past the resemblance and the DNA between the 3 Series sedan and coupe was obvious, this time we want to take a much larger step. It’s more than a 3 Series sedan, it has more presence and it’s more dynamic. It’s time to change to the 4 Series”, said the BMW sales and marketing director, Ian Robertson.

The cabin of the 4-Series has the same dashboard layout as the 3-Series F30, the seats have been covered in hand-braided leather trim, wood trim has been added for a more premium feel and the model will finally hit the showrooms with a 2+2 seating arrangement. No details on the engine lineup have been confirmed just yet but rumors are saying that we will most likely see the 420i, the 430i or the 435i petrol engines, along with the 420d, 430d and the 435d diesel units.
