Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: BMW 4 Series Coupe image

BMW has officially unveiled the new 4 Series Coupe, the follow up to the late 3 Series Coupe, now a model series on its own.

For the German luxury car maker the new 4 Series Coupe signals a new beginning for the sporty models, which will further differentiate from the regular 3 Series versions, even if it continues to be based on its platform and design.

Because it will get a very good home in the U.S. and China markets, the new 4 Series Coupe is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupe, and its silhouette sits lower to the road. A new element of the BMW 4 Series Coupe are the Air Breathers, positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches to reduce drag in this area.

The new 4 Series carries on from the 3 Series sibling the individual lines, offerd as a n option to the standard trim: Sport Line, Modern Line and Luxury Line packages allow visible individualization of the car’s exterior and interior appearance, but we also have the very sporty M Sport package as an alternative.

The BMW 4 Series Coupe has an innovative lightweight construction, sophisticated chassis technology; torque steer-free Electric Power Steering, 50:50 weight distribution and was fine-tuned in the wind tunnel.

The sporting two-door model will be available from launch powered by the following engines: the six-cylinder in-line petrol engine in the BMW 435i Coupe, the four-cylinder petrol unit for the BMW 428i Coupe and the four-cylinder diesel for the BMW 420d Coupe. All the engines work using the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and cover an output spectrum stretching from 135 kW/184 hp to 225 kW/306 hp.
