The swanky new BMW 4 Series Coupe Concept which the company unveiled in 2012 was the pre-production preview of the 4 Series Coupe. And although it was labeled as a concept. It was 99 per cent ready for the showroom.
Acknowldging the strong connection between the 3 Series family and the new 4 Series Coupe, BMW have chosen not to shake up the design too much. In fact from the front wheels forward the cars are virtually identical. As you’d expect, the sportier 4 Series gets a few design tweaks designed to beef up its appearance. This is apparent in the larger air intakes up front, lower stance, and additional vents behind the front wheels.
The 4 Series Coupe is longer, lower and wider than the previous 3 Series Coupe. But the svelte bodywork does a good job of hiding the increased size. In profile the roofline has a very Audi A5-ish feel to it. But that’s no bad thing and in general the design is pretty sweet. That face might take a bit of getting used to though, as the merging of the grille with the headlights has always been a bit of a polarizing feature.
