- BMW has revealed the All-New BMW 4 Series Coupé.
With a bold new look and complete with controversial front grille, the New 4 Series is the latest generation of the sporty two-door model and aims to set a clear differentiation from the brands 3 Series. The new prominent kidney grille is said to follow the tradition of former BMW coupés and reflects the engine’s high cooling air requirement.
The BMW M440i xDrive Coupé makes its debut at the top of the range and is powered by a 374hp six-cylinder in-line petrol engine. The range also includes two four-cylinder petrol engines and a four-cylinder diesel unit. Two six-cylinder in-line diesel engines will also join the line-up next year.
All of the diesel engines and the M440i’s in-line 6 all benefit from mild hybrid technology and each use a 48v starter-generator to help boost the combustion engines with an extra 11hp. All diesel engines now also have two-stage turbocharging.
The All-New BMW 4 Series Coupé is available to order now, with deliveries expected in October.
