BMW 4-Series Gets A Facelift & Technology Upgrade

BMW has a subtly facelifted 4-Series ahead of a planned public debut at the upcoming 2017 Geneva motor show.

This revised 4-Series line-up, which encompasses the two-door Coupe and Convertible as well as the four-door Gran Coupe, receives a mildly altered front end appearance with lightly restyled air ducts within the lower section of the bumper featuring on both the standard Luxury and M-Sport variants.

Further changes have been made to the headlamps, which retain the same shape as those found on earlier examples of the 4-Series but receive a new internal graphic similar to that seen on the 2012 Concept 4-Series, with new LED operation for both the low and high beam together with an optional adaptive LED function.

At the rear, the 2017-model-year 4-Series adopts mildly altered tail lamps with new graphics and full LED operation as well as a lightly restyled bumper featuring new feature lines that mimic the styling of the front air ducts as well as repositioned reflectors.

These BMWs also receives revised 18- and 19-inch alloy wheels and two new exterior colours: snapper rocks blue and sunset orange.

The changes inside are every bit as subtle as those made to the exterior. Included is a newly designed steering wheel, electroplated aluminium and chrome trim elements as well as black high gloss panels and the choice of a number of different dashboard trim finishes – all mirroring the chances already brought to the 3-Series in 2016.

Heading the new 4-Series line-up is a reworked M4, which is sold in both Coupe and Convertible bodystyles. Power for the M4 Coupe and Convertible continues to hail from BMW M division’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder engine. Since its introduction to the BMW line-up in 2013, the three-model-strong 4-Series has garnered over 400,000 sales worldwide as a successor to the earlier 3-Series Coupe and Cabriolet.
