4-door BMW 4 Series and BMW i4 get facelifted 3 months after the 2-door models.

At the end of January 2024, BMW gave the 4 Series Coupé and Convertible family a facelift or ‘Life Cycle Impulse’. The update was minor, bringing new headlights and taillights, electrified 6-cylinder powertrains, and other new options for the exterior and interior. So, what’s new with the 4-door models?

The line-up has been expanded with a new BMW i4 xDrive40 with an output of 401hp and a range of 444-548km. The rest of the line-up includes the i4 M50 xDrive, i4 eDrive40 and i4 eDrive35.
