The brand new BMW 4-Series Coupe
One of the most anxiously awaited cars of recent days has finally made it to newspapers – the BMW 4-Series Coupé. We’ve prepared a huge photo gallery right for you, presenting the brand new Bimer in detail, as you’ve probably been expecting of us.
Alongside the gorgeous gallery we’re also bringing some details of the US specification model, accompanied by the pricing. The successor of the 3-Series Coupé will join the US market as a 428i at its lowest, powered by a turbocharged 240 HP 2.0-liter inline-four engine.
The prices for this version start at $41,425 (a full $1,800 more than the 2013 328i, with its 230 HP straight-6 engine). The 3.0-liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine on the more powerful 435i delivers 300 HP, with the car boasting a base MSRP price of $46,925 (this means the 435i is $900 more expensive than the similar 335i).
The xDrive models are quite gorgeous as well – the all-wheel drive 428i xDrive Coupé for example and the 435i xDrive Coupé will be starting at $43,425 respectively $48,925. The prices include handling and destination as well. Moreover, according to BMW, the car’s length has only been increased by 26 mm – 1 inch -, summing up at 182.6 in (4,638 mm). The wheelbase is also longer, by 2 inches (50 mm) – 110.6 in (2,810 mm). The size of the width has also been enlarged, by 1.7 in (43 mm) which translates into the car being 71.9 in (1,825 mm) wide. The last measurement to mention is the roofline, which, for the 4-Series, is 0.6 inches (16 mm) lower than before (53.6 in / 1,362 mm).
In terms of performance, the 435i sprints from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 5.3 seconds, thanks to the extremely fast 6-speed manual transmission. If you opt for the 8-speed automatic transmission, the car is able to do the sprint in 5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), on sports, summer racing tires. The gentler 428i Coupé though does the same sprint in 5.7 seconds and boasts the ability to reach the same electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
Having debuted on the latest 3-Series BMW, the brand new trim packages have also been added to the 4-Series. Soon enough, the Bavarian brand will also provide the 4-Series in Luxury and Sport lines as well, alongside an M Sport version with extensive interior, wheel, suspension and aerodynamic upgrades.
