This is the production version of the BMW 4 Series coupé, the successor to the BMW 3 Series coupé and rival to the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupé. Set to make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the new two-door is set to go on sale in the UK on October 5, priced from £31,575 for the entry-level 420d SE.
The most potent launch model is the 435i which, when equipped with the optional eight-speed automatic, has a 0-62mph time of 5.1 sec. Rounding out the lineup late next year will be the M4 coupé. Power is set to come from a heavily tuned, twin-turbocharged version of BMW’s 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine, which is claimed to deliver around 440bhp.
Standard equipment includes heated leather seats and a 6.5-inch color screen with BMW’s iDrive controller. All versions except the base SE get 18-inch alloy wheels and sport seats. The M Sport trim includes adaptive dampers, which are available as an option across the rest of the range.
