BMW 4 SERIES OVERVIEW.
Since its launch in 2013, the BMW 4 Series has embodied a combination of incomparable aesthetic and sporty dynamics. Modern gasoline and diesel engines up to the M equipment round out the series’ excellent overall concept. The predecessor to the BMW 4 Series is the BMW 3 Series Coupé, which entered the market as a separate, but more agile, version of the classic sports sedan in 1990.
The second generation is distinguished by a more expressive, confident design and has become longer and wider. All the individual characteristics, such as the mesmerizing aesthetic and the thrilling sense of sportiness, have been made even stronger, underscoring BMW’s precise styling. The BMW 4 Series comes in three thrilling variants – the Coupé, the Cabrio, and the four-door Gran Coupé. Each generation of the series shares its premium character in terms of exclusive design, high-quality interior, and powerful engine.
The all-new BMW 4 Series Convertible inspires on the exterior with its independent and progressive aesthetics, while the interior presents an appearance that is both sporty and elegant. One highlight of the vehicle is the redeveloped softtop with its elegant and flat design, low weight and high level of comfort in terms of both acoustics and climate. Thanks to the optimally tuned drivetrain and suspension technologies, the all-new BMW 4 Series Convertible also offers driving dynamics of a high level.
Powerful aesthetics and sporting dynamism characterise the BMW 4 Series Coupé. Augmenting them is a unique driving sensation thanks to the low centre of gravity, ideal axle load distribution, high body stiffness and the engines with TwinPower Turbo technology. The BMW Lines Sport, Luxury and Modern together with the M Sport package provide options for personalising the BMW 4 Series Coupé. One highlight, in the literal sense, is the new adaptive full-LED headlights including BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant). The innovative Air Breather not only sets an exciting design accent but also reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Ensuring even more driving pleasure are the 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission and driver assistance systems such as the BMW Head-Up Display.
Natural elegance: The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé combines fascinating aesthetics and typical BMW performance with ingenious functionality. Highlights include excellent head room and leg room, a large tailgate and unique design elements. The vehicle’s dynamic driving characteristics are emphasised by the optional Adaptive M suspension and the efficient, high-performance TwinPower Turbo engines. All of this makes the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé a perfect blend of dynamics, elegance and comfort.
The BMW 4 Series Convertible enters a new dimension of exciting sportiness blended with stylish elegance. The athletic character of the BMW 4 Series Convertible stems from its surging front, wide track and imposing tail end. The retractable hardtop provides an undiluted open-air experience and a unique driving feel all year round. Its fluid styling and the double swage line along its sides emphasise its elegant presence. Special highlights include the optional Adaptive LED Headlights BMW Selective Beam (anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant) and the innovative Air Breathers in the front wheel arches, an aerodynamic measure that helps cut fuel consumption and emissions. The engines' TwinPower Turbo technology guarantees lively performance. And the latest BMW ConnectedDrive technologies plus a high-calibre interior tailored to the driver’s needs, with superb comfort and intelligent functionality for an active lifestyle, round off the overall concept.

OVERVIEW OF THE BMW 4 SERIES’ HISTORY.
THE ORIGIN OF THE BMW 4 SERIES.
Since 2013, the BMW 4 Series has been admired for its sporty, agile look combined with comfort and exclusivity. But its predecessors have been around for even longer, the BMW 4 Series standing in line with the legendary sports sedan BMW 02 (series 114) and the direct successor of the BMW 3 Series Coupé. The two-door version of the sports sedan has been described as a coupé since its introduction. And since 1990, as of series E36, the 3 Series Coupé has boasted a striking unique design, a bit flatter and a bit wider than the sedan. The long doors and frameless window panes, together with the curved roof line, showcase the vehicle’s sporty character. Two more generations of models followed (E46, E92).
2013 began a new era – from the BMW 3 Series Coupé was born a new series, the BMW 4 Series (F32, F33, F36). Thus, the BMW 4 Series continues what once began with the revolutionary BMW 02 series sedans: joy in driving, dynamics, and a confident presence.
THE FIRST GENERATION.
(BMW F32, F33, F36)
Since the now visible differentiation between the BMW 3 Series Sedan and Coupé, they consequently diverged into two different series in 2013. The BMW 4 Series is the beginning of a new era, a distinctly independent vehicle made so by its significantly greater width and wheel base.
Short overhangs, an elongated, curved engine hood, and the set back passenger compartment distinguish the design – giving it a stronger silhouette. Features typical of the brand, such as the round twin headlights, the flat double kidney grille, and the Hofmeister kink in the C-pillar, form a striking contrast to the wide rear with narrow lights. This in particular shows the expansive rear wheel wells to an advantage, lending the first generation of the BMW 4 Series an imposing appearance. The relentlessly precise design does not let up in the vehicle’s interior. A functional design and driver-oriented geometry make steering the car an experience.
The BMW 4 Series Convertible (F33) entered the showroom shortly after the BMW 4 Series Coupé. The modern folding metal roof makes it a pleasure to drive all year round, as does the confident design. In the summer of 2014, the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) completed the BMW 4 Series models. The combination of sporty coupé and four-door offers comfort and elegance. The BMW 4 Series stands for dynamics and liveliness.

THE SECOND GENERATION.
(BMW G22, G23)
The second generation of the BMW 4 Series is twelve centimeters longer and much wider than its predecessor, the BMW F32. One striking design feature: the vertical, forward-leaning kidney grille. With the headlights set at an angle, together they form a breath-taking front that exudes confidence and dynamism. The coupé’s expressive character is underscored by the expansive rear wheel wells and the raised side windows in the back. Also striking are the curved tail lights that wrap around the side, forming a striking image with the sloping roof.
The interior, designed for functionality, captures the precise design language of the BMW 4 series, with exclusive materials lending it a modern air of independence.
Like its predecessors, the new generation of the BMW 4 Series is based on the current BMW 3 Series, but has a lower center of gravity by two centimeters and a wider rear axle track width by 23 millimeters for vastly improved dynamics.
If you want to feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your skin, the convertible (BMW G23) is the right choice for you. It combines a sporty aesthetic with harmonious lines and agility.
