New BMW 4 Series revealed (gallery)

7

BMW has revealed the new 4 Series coupe, which will arrive in dealerships before the end of the year priced from £39,870 at launch.

The model has been the subject of much speculation – and some criticism - since a picture of its dramatically re-styled front end was leaked earlier in the year.

In a departure from the sleeker styling of previous models the new 4 features large front grilles that dominates the front end, giving a more striking look.

The car is also longer and wider, improving road presence.

Inside, there is much the same interior treatment as other recent BMWs, including the new 3 Series.

The engine line-up includes a range of 48v mild hybrid petrol and diesel units.

There’s a 420d, which likely to be the most appealing to company car drivers. It emits from 121g/km and should achieve up to 62mpg.

BMW has also added a new performance oriented diesel, the M440d xDrive.

M Sport models are the only ones available to order at the moment. They offer a more aggressive look, with gloss black accents and larger wheels. There is also an M Sport Pro pack, which adds a Sprint function for additional bursts of speed and a sporty engine soundtrack in the cabin.

The standard driver assistance systems include front collision warning with active city braking and lane departure warning. Adding the Driving Assistant Professional package introduces adaptive cruise control and Lane Control Assistant, which keeps the car centred in its lane.

BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional offers a high-resolution 12.3-inch instrument cluster behind the steering wheel and a 10.25-inch Central Control Display. Connected Package Professional is included on all models, comprising BMW TeleServices, Intelligent Emergency Call, Real Time Traffic Information with hazard warning, Remote Services and Concierge Services.

The new 4 Series will be officially launched in October.
