The New BMW 4 Series Coupé & 4 Series Convertible

Vehicle Launch

When it comes to the premium segment of the midsize class, the number 4 stands for the perfect combination of driving pleasure and elegantly sporty design. These have been hallmark brand values of BMW since its earliest days, and the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible embody them even more intently than ever.

The precisely modified exterior design of the two models underscores their dynamic character and exclusive style. Modern touches and new equipment features bring a premium ambience of renewed sophistication to the interior. New exterior paint finishes and light-alloy wheels, headlights with a striking design for the light sources and the now optionally available Laserlight rear lights mark out the latest advances in the exterior of the two models. 

Production of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible will remain at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing, and its worldwide market launch will get underway in March 2024.


Exterior Design.

Striking visual cues point the way to captivating dynamics.

With their distinctive lines and clean surface treatment in the brand’s modern design language, the coupé and convertible members of the BMW 4 Series line-up exude driving pleasure and inimitable style. The features of the optional M Sport package add further punch to the cars’ dynamic appearance. They include a diffuser element in the lower section of the rear bumper, which is now painted in Black high-gloss. In addition, the exhaust tailpipes integrated into the rear apron on the left and right have grown from 90 millimetres to 100 millimetres in diameter. As an extension to the M Sport package, customers can also order their cars with the M Sport package Pro and M Carbon exterior package.

Newly designed headlights, innovative Laserlight rear lights.

Design cues specific to the BMW 4 Series include the visually powerful front end shaped by slim LED headlights and a vertically arranged BMW kidney grille. The air intakes of the strikingly forward-angled grille have a mesh structure, both in standard form and if the M Sport package is specified. Their surround now comes in matt chrome.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible also feature visually and functionally upgraded headlights. The LED units in their inner workings, which provide all the light functions, have been redesigned and have a new structure. Low and high beam are generated from a single LED module. And a pair of vertical and subtly arrow-shaped LED units house the side light, daytime driving light and turn signal indicator functions. The technically focused look of the new light sources gives the headlights a high-quality and progressive appearance. Adaptive LED Headlights with non-dazzling matrix high beam are available as an option. 

Also offered as part of the M Sport package Pro and if the Adaptive LED Headlights are specified are M Shadowline lights with dark inner accents. If the optional Comfort Access is fitted, the headlights generate a Welcome Light Animation once the driver and vehicle key come within three metres of the car.

New exterior paint shades and light-alloy wheels.

Customers can give the outside of their new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible a personal touch with a choice of two solid and eight metallic paint finishes. Cape York Green metallic and Fire Red metallic are new additions to the range. And a wide variety of BMW Individual paint finishes and BMW Individual special paint finishes are also offered.

Attractive new additions can also be found in the selection of optional light-alloy wheels. The new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible are both offered for the first time with three new 19-inch variants. The new M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design can be ordered in either Jet Black or a bi-colour finish. And the new BMW Individual light-alloy wheels also have a Y-spoke design and are finished in Midnight Grey.

Interior and Equipment.

Progressive style and an aura of carefully honed refinement.

Standard-fitted sport seats and newly designed steering wheels feed into the intensity of the driving experience in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible. The large BMW Curved Display brings a fresh and particularly modern interpretation of the driver focus for which the brand is renowned. High-quality, meticulously crafted materials and a new operating concept for ventilation and climate control systems add to the cockpit’s premium allure. The modifications carried out to the interior of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible ensure those on board can enjoy driving pleasure with progressive style and long-distance comfort in an ambience of carefully honed refinement.

Among the cutting-edge new features is a version of the optionally available seat surfaces that is making its debut in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and is produced using more sustainable methods. Added to which, new interior trim strips are available for both the coupé and convertible. And standard specification now also includes ambient lighting and electrically folding exterior mirrors. The range of optional equipment has been restructured to enable particularly targeted individualisation.

New steering wheels with standard gearshift paddles.

The latest-generation steering wheels available for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible stand out with their modern and sporty design. As standard, the driver will find in front of them a newly designed sports leather steering wheel with a polygonal rim and two spokes. The M Sport package now brings an M leather steering wheel in three-spoke design with a flat-bottomed rim and a discreet centre marking. Both versions of the newly designed steering wheels have illuminated multifunction buttons and gearshift paddles. Now fitted as standard, the paddles enable particularly swift manual interventions in the gear selection process and underscore the sharper sporting profile of the new BMW 4 Series models.

Detail revisions for the instrument panel, digital climate control.

The introduction of the upgraded BMW iDrive with QuickSelect also brings improved operation of the ventilation and climate control functions in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and in the new BMW 4 Series Convertible. This is a prime example of advanced digitalisation at work and enables a further reduction in the number of physical buttons and controls in the cockpit. Temperature selection, intensity of ventilation and – if the relevant features are specified – seat and steering wheel heating can now be adjusted by touch via the BMW Curved Display or by voice command with the help of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

Powertrain and driving experience.

Powerful, efficient and supremely assured.

The line-up of powertrains for the new BMW 4 Series range comprises powerful and highly efficient petrol and diesel engines featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and electrification in the form of 48V mild hybrid technology. All the drive units deliver an exceptional blend of sporting driving pleasure and fuel economy, all are part of the current modular generation of Efficient Dynamics engines and all are mated to an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission as standard. The shift paddles on the steering wheel, which also come as standard in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible, allow quick manual interventions in the gear selection process, adding to the dynamic driving experience.

Straight-six engines can be found under the bonnet of the M Performance versions in both model series (see separate chapter), as well as in the new BMW 430d xDrive Coupé and BMW 430d Convertible, whose diesel unit has an output of 210 kW/286 hp. The line-up also includes two four-cylinder petrol engines developing 135 kW/184 hp and 180 kW/245 hp respectively and a 140 kW/190 hp four-cylinder diesel. The engine’s power is fed to the road via either classical rear-wheel drive or the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system, depending on the model variant.

Mild hybrid technology optimises power delivery and efficiency.

All the six-cylinder in-line engines available for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible, as well as the four-cylinder diesel unit, come with 48V mild hybrid technology for sharper power delivery and greater efficiency. This electric boost enhances the drive system’s dynamic response when accelerating off the line and putting in mid-range bursts of speed. The electric drive unit also assists the engine when travelling at a constant speed, allowing it to operate within an efficiency-optimised load range as often as possible.

The M Performance Models in the New BMW 4 Series Range.

Distinctive characters top the model range.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible range is spearheaded by elite sporting models cast in the familiar M mould. The performance cars from BMW M GmbH showcase the dynamic potential woven into the vehicle concepts of the BMW 4 Series range to highly impressive effect. Extremely powerful six-cylinder in-line engines, a bespoke chassis set-up and signature M design cues both inside and out mark them out as a proposition apart.

The M Performance models in the BMW 4 Series are available with both petrol and diesel engines, each with a displacement of 3.0 litres. The M-typical performance attributes of these straight-six units are underpinned by, among other things, the latest M TwinPower Turbo technology – which is tailored individually to the engine at hand. Another shared feature is the 48V mild hybrid technology, whose output of 8 kW/11 hp produces an electric boost effect that gives the engines even sharper response.

New-look BMW kidney grille, black tailpipe finishers as standard.

An array of select design flourishes announces the dynamic character of the M Performance models even more vividly. For instance, the new edition of these models features a BMW kidney grille with a surround in Black high-gloss and horizontally arranged bars adorned by an M logo. All the front apron elements that were previously finished in Cerium Grey now come in Black high-gloss. As a result, the models’ appearance when viewed from the front recalls the design of the BMW M4 high-performance sports cars to an even greater extent.

At the rear end of the M Performance models, trapezoidal tailpipe trim signals the presence of the ultra-potent power unit under the bonnet. They are now in Black high-gloss as standard, meaning that all elements of the M High-gloss Shadowline trim option are already included in the standard specification of these models.

Display and Control

The new BMW Operating System 8.5 and innovative digital services.

The advances made in terms of digitalisation in the latest edition of the BMW 4 Series are also clear to see. This is mainly thanks to the upgraded BMW iDrive display and control/operation system with QuickSelect based on BMW Operating System 8.5. In order to provide intuitive, easy control of numerous functions along with access to innovative digital services, the latest-generation BMW iDrive system fitted in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and the new BMW 4 Series Convertible features a new-look home screen and QuickSelect rapid access tech, bringing an improved menu structure that takes its cue from consumer electronics devices.

BMW iDrive with QuickSelect: functions shown on a single level and selectable with rapid-access tech.

The new BMW Operating System 8.5 home screen continuously displays the navigation system’s map view or other individually configurable graphics on the control display. On the same level, widgets appear in a vertical arrangement on the driver’s side of the display. Drivers can switch between them with a vertical swipe of the finger. The QuickSelect feature allows the function selected in this way to be activated directly without having to enter a submenu. And once the relevant settings have been chosen, a quick tap on the home icon at the lower edge of the control display is all it takes to return to the home screen. Icons for direct access to the climate control menu, All Apps menu and, if activated, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ can also now be found next to the home icon.

BMW Maps navigation system now with Augmented View.

The cloud-based BMW Maps navigation system forms part of the standard BMW Live Cockpit Plus. Following the introduction of BMW Operating System 8.5 in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and new BMW 4 Series Convertible, the system now makes it even easier to input destinations and can offer additional information while driving. Another new feature is the Augmented View function which, like the BMW Head-Up Display, is available by specifying the optional BMW Live Cockpit Professional. This supplements the navigation system’s map display by showing a live video stream of the driver’s view on the control display or instrument cluster and augmenting it with tips and information to match the context.
