It was long planned: BMW should stop the name “Series 3″ for its cut and convertible based on the platform of the 3 Series sedan. The Bavarian brand announced that they now respond to variations Number Series 4.
To mark the propeller, the communication strategy is the same as on previous news: after a show because almost definitive seen in Detroit, BMW up this time the veil on its Series 4 Coupe in its final version. You’ll struggle to observe changes in self view in the United States earlier this year, the 4 Series Coupe is almost identical to the Concept Series 4.
New Body Style
Fans of BMW style should appreciate these more slender than the old 3 Series Coupe forms with a line much more elusive roof, much like the big 6 Series Coupe. The front is very close to that of the current 3 Series , the stern tends more towards the high end cut of the brand. We also find this amazing hearing placed between the front wheel arches and doors, without knowing if they have a real technical value or if they are simply fake.
Inside, the universe is strongly reminiscent of the interior of the Series 6 which is a priori all but a reproach. The interior looks sportier than the 3 Series, we hope that the curvature of the roof will have no impact on the headroom for the rear passengers.
The dimensions are up compared to the 3 Series Coupe as it is 26 mm longer and 43 mm wider. It is however lower than 16 millimeters, which probably helps to give it that much more elegant silhouette. Mass side, she grew a little with 45 pounds less advertised on the scale.

Lovers of six in line rather look to the 435i and its block of three liters and 306 horsepower, which boosted from 0 to 60 mph in five seconds.
