BMW restyles its 4 Series and M4

Are coupes and convertibles endangered? Not for BMW, which is updating its 4 Series and M4 to better compete with the new Mercedes-Benz CLE.

Coupés and convertibles are no longer really in the odor of sanctity in the European Union, manufacturers rationalizing their range around SUVs available in all forms. Never mind, BMW continues to bring its 4 Series and its M4 derivative to lifetoday offering them a mid-career restyling.

Update for 4 Series coupe and convertible

The 4 Series family occupied 4e place of best BMW sales in 2022 in France, with 4,750 units sold, behind the Series 1, X1 and X3. Behind this name hide four models: the 4 Series coupe, the 4 Series convertible, the 4 Series GranCoupé sedanand finally, derived from the latter, the i4 electric sedan. Closely derived from the 3 Series family car, they still offer purely thermal engines, without hybridization, embodied by four and six cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. If the two sedans are still young (2022), the convertible and the coupe, launched in 2020, were awaiting a mid-career restyling. Here it is finally, BMW is today presenting these two updated models, both in the “civilian” Series 4 version and in the sporty version called M4. As is often the case with this type of “exercise”, the aesthetic changes are quite slight. The headlights and rear lights have been redesigned and now feature a new light signature, while – again at the front and rear – the shields have seen their design simplified. The grille now displays a matte black insert on the 4 Series, and horizontal slats on the M Performance version.

Developments everywhere

On board, BMW has revised the presentation of their dashboard: the central vents are new, new materials (glass or metal) are available as an option, as is a new upholstery called Sensatec, now available. Standard equipment now includes “Park Assist”, with reversing camera and autonomous parking, an anti-theft alarm, and new heated seats. The BMW 0S 8.5 infotainment system is also updated, with new, more intuitive functions (notably for the air conditioning controls), and a faster interface which now integrates GPS guidance in augmented reality. BMW is also introducing two new body colors Cape York (green) and Fire Red (red), as well as three new 19-inch wheel models. Under the hood, the four blocks previously offered in France are renewed: a four-cylinder of 184 hp in gasoline and 190 hp in diesel, and a six-cylinder of 374 hp in gasoline, and 340 hp in diesel. The sporty M4 sees the power of its six-cylinder gasoline increase from 510 to 530 hp, but loses its rear-wheel drive version for the only full xDrive in the catalog… So, what price for all that? The 4 Series coupe starts at €54,200 in gasoline and €59,700 in diesel, the convertible at €61,700 in gasoline and €64,700 in diesel. The M4 sports versioncut as a convertible, sells for at least €121,000.

Orders are already open, and these “new” Series 4 are already configurable on the BMW France website.
