The all new BMW 4 Series Coupe - Official Details

BMW 4 series coupe

The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe marks the beginning of a new era for coupes at BMW. Launched as the latest generation of BMW's sporty mid-size Coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment. The "4" in its title headlines this new product line for the Coupe and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but that any way you look at it, the new 4 Series Coupe represents something more than its BMW 3 Series cousins - 3+1, if you will. At the same time, as a true BMW Coupe, the new nomenclature brings the new BMW 4 Series Coupe in line with the larger 6 Series and 8 Series Coupes.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe will be offered as both a 428i, featuring BMW's award winning TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and as a 435i with the multi-award winning Twin Power Turbo 3.0-liter inline six. Both will be available with a standard 8-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Both will also be offered with a choice of rearwheel drive or with optional xDrive, BMW's intelligent all-wheel drive system. The 2014 BMW 428i Coupe will have a base MSRP of $41,425, and the 2014 BMW 435i Coupe will have a starting price of $46,925. Both prices include destination and handling. The 2014 428i xDrive Coupe and 435i xDrive will start from $43,425 and 48,925 respectively, again inclusive of destination and handling. All four variants of the BMW 4 Series Coupe will arrive in US showrooms late this summer.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupe, and its stretched silhouette sits considerably lower to the road. This, together with its BMW-typical short overhangs, long hood and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, give the BMW 4 Series Coupe a visual balance. The car's striking front end - with its characteristic BMW design features, such as the doublekidney grille, four round headlights and a large air intake in the front apron - is keen to display its family ties with the BMW 3 Series. New elements of the BMW 4 Series Coupe are the Air Breathers, which are positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches to reduce drag. The Coupe's muscular wheel arches and wide track give an aggressive stance, with its prominent horizontal lines.

BMW is going to have to stop. Every number up to 7 is used now, and 8 has been used historically. So unless we've got a 9 Series in our future, there's nothing left.

You're dumb and I won't even comment, I hope somebody else figures out what I'm thinking.

I'm not sure what I said that was dumb. Are you denying that BMW now has a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7?

Don't forget the 6-4 (6 Series with four doors).

I don't understand. Is this for fat Americans who want a 3 series feel, but can't fit into one?

Just because its called the 4? What's in a name? That which we call a 3-series coupe by any other name would drive just as sweet.

Ok, nevermind. I just read the dimensions. Looks big though. I'm not impressed by the pics.
