The new BMW 4 Series Coupe heralds a new era for coupes at BMW. Launched
as the fourth generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupe, replacing the 3-Series coupes, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe
embodies the very essence of aesthetic appeal and dynamics in its market segment. Its stylistic features carry the
promise of a powerful presence on the road, dynamic ability and driving pleasure. Indeed, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe
represents a paragon of balanced proportions and the final chapter in a story of development.
The “4” in its title headlines this new era for the Coupe and emphasises not only its stand-alone design, but equally
an even greater technical differentiation from its BMW 3 Series cousins, something that can also be seen in new premium
features such as the optional full LED headlights.
A convertible version will appear at a later time.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe is larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupe, and its dynamically
stretched coupe silhouette sits considerably lower to the road. This, together with its BMW-typical short overhangs, long
bonnet and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, lends the BMW 4 Series Coupe impeccable balance. The
car’s striking front end – with its characteristic BMW design features, such as the double-kidney grille, twin circular
headlights and a large air intake in the front apron – is keen to display its family ties with the BMW 3 Series. However,
the more sporting interpretation of the BMW 4 Series Coupe also underlines its dynamic convictions. 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
Coupe’s wheel arches and wide track make a particularly prominent contribution to the hunkered-down design of the rear,
with its prominent horizontal lines.
Individual equipment lines for the interior and exterior
The interior of the BMW 4 Series Coupe presents a stylish fusion of sporting allure and exclusivity. All the controls
central to driving are arranged ergonomically around the driver and give him or her optimum access to all functions. The
doors are designed so that all the lines converge towards the rear, pulling the focus of the interior clearly towards the
front. In the rear compartment, contoured seats underline the sporting credentials of the BMW 4 Series Coupe. Recessed
head restraints and broad, continuously moulded side supports give the rear bench the appearance of two individual seats.
High-grade material combinations and unbeatable finish quality accentuate the premium ambience of the new BMW 4 Series
Coupe. Customers can choose from three equipment combinations and an M Sport package as alternatives to standard
specification. The Sport Line, Modern Line and Luxury Line packages allow visible individualisation of the car’s exterior
and interior appearance.
The defining ingredients in the involving driving experience laid on by the new BMW 4 Series Coupe are its driving
dynamics and assured handling properties. The BMW engineers have succeeded in making key improvements in areas such as
steering accuracy, precision and agility, as well as honing, further still, the instincts of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe
as an appealing driving machine. Sophisticated chassis technology, torque steer-free Electric Power Steering, 50:50
weight distribution, a programme of fine-tuning in the wind tunnel and an innovative lightweight construction concept
gave them the tools to achieve their aims.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe has a longer wheelbase, wider track and lower ride height than the BMW 3 Series Coupe it
replaces. Its lower suspension brings the car’s centre of gravity down to below 500 millimetres, giving it the lowest
centre of gravity of any car in the current BMW model line-up. As a result, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe is one of the
sportiest series-produced cars in the BMW range and sets new dynamic standards in the segment.
One six-cylinder and two four-cylinder engines available from launch
In Europe, 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. These state-of-the-art engines not only imbue
the BMW 4 Series Coupe with outstanding acceleration and elasticity, they also join forces with the car’s intelligent
lightweight construction concept to deliver further improvements in driving dynamics and lower fuel consumption.
Six-speed manual gearbox or eight-speed Sports automatic
The power from the engines is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. BMW will also fit
all the engine variants – as an option – with an eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox, which allows the driver to change
gear manually as well using shift paddles on the steering wheel. The two petrol-engine model variants can be specified
from launch, as an option, with the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system.
The driving pleasure available on board the new BMW 4 Series Coupe is a product of outstanding economy as well as
sporting dynamics. The force behind this talent for fuel saving is the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy, whose
fruits can be found in almost every area of the new model. In addition to the petrol and diesel engines, with their
optimised fuel economy, the car’s intelligent lightweight construction concept and honed aerodynamics – headlined by the
Air Curtains and Air Breathers – also help to maximise efficiency. The BMW 4 Series Coupe may be set up to specialise in
dynamic excellence, but other technological features, such as the Auto Start Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration,
Optimum Shift Indicator and on-demand operation of ancillary units, do their bit to ensure it impresses with low fuel
consumption and emissions, too. Indeed, ECO PRO mode gives the car the potential to cut fuel use by as much as 20 per
cent. In conjunction with the optional automatic transmission, the BMW 4 Series Coupe now also features a coasting mode
for the first time. Another innovation is the Proactive Driving Assistant.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe deploys a unique combination of driver assistance systems and mobility services (available
as standard or as an option under the BMW ConnectedDrive banner) to set the benchmark in terms of safety, comfort and
infotainment. Among the highlights are a new generation of the Navigation System Professional, which offers extra
capability, sharper graphics and 3D elements for the map display, the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display, Driving Assistant
Plus, which warns the driver of a potential collision with a pedestrian, the intelligent, glare-free LED High Beam
Assistant, Active Protection with Attentiveness Assistant and the latest development stage of the Active Cruise Control
with Stop & Go function. As far as infotainment is concerned, extremely efficient interface technology enables the
integration of smartphones and numerous Bluetooth office functions. The latter now also offer the driver the services of
a dictation function with full speech recognition.
The new BMW 4-Series coupe will be released in Australia during the first half in 2014.
