BMW’s new 4-Series will be priced from £36,675 in the UK when it goes on sale in in time for the March plate-change next year.
The new model replaces the 3-Series convertible in the BMW range and the two-door four seater features a three-piece folding hard-top. It will sit alongside the 4 Series Coupe in the BMW range and the convertible commands a £5,000 premium.
The new model is longer, wider and lower than the previous 3-Series version and customers will be able to choose from two petrol engines and one diesel, as well five trims – SE, Sport, Luxury, Modern and M Sport.
There will be a four-cylinder 428i with 241bhp and a straight six 435i with 302bhp. The 420d has 180bhp and BMW claims it will manage 55mpg.
The retractable roof can be lowered in 20 seconds up to speeds of 11mph and the boost spaceof 370-litres is reduced to 220-litre.
