Due in March, the new BMW 4 Series range will feature sharper styling and revised suspension and will be debuted at the upcoming Geneva International Motor Show.

Having consistently stood out for its dynamism and aesthetics, the BMW 4 Series has sold nearly 400,000 models worldwide (by the end of 2016) since its launch. 2013 saw the arrival of the BMW 4 Series Coupé, with the BMW 4 Series Convertible and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé completing the model family the following year.

Design highlights.

Restyled LED headlights replace their predecessor's xenon units and LED front fog lamps are included as standard. The new sculpted LED rear lights - fitted on the BMW 4 Series for the first time - add to the car's powerful presence. For the Sport model there are modified air intakes and a new rear apron which adds further striking touches. The two new exterior paint finishes, Snapper Rocks Blue and Sunset Orange, are available exclusively for the new BMW 4 Series models along with a new BMW Individual Frozen Silver metallic paintwork for the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé models.

Inside, new electroplated detailing, chrome applications, double stitching on the instrument panel and the High-gloss Black centre console reinforce the high-quality feel. Three new upholstery colours along with two new interior trim options provide greater choice when personalising the interior.

Revised suspension.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupé and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé now come with stiffer suspension delivering sportier handling without any loss of comfort. The lateral and longitudinal dynamics have been improved, regardless of the on-board load.

The new BMW 4 Series models boast even more assured straight-line stability and responsive steering, with high-performance tyres available as a factory-fitted option for all M Sport models.

Powertrain and model line-up.
All of the powertrain variants fitted in the new BMW 4 Series range come from the latest BMW EfficientDynamics family of engines and are equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. There are three petrol engines (BMW 420i, BMW 430i and BMW 440i) and three diesel options (BMW 420d, BMW 430d, BMW 435d xDrive) available.

A wide range of variants are available with BMW xDrive, while the BMW 435d variant is only available with the intelligent all-wheel-drive system.

New navigation and instrumentation displays.
The Professional Navigation system for the new BMW 4 Series features an updated interface with a new large easy-to-use, live-tile main menu. These tiles can be arranged as desired and display a constantly live and updated version of the linked menu content, making operation even more intuitive. The Professional Navigation system is fitted as standard to all M Sport models and is optionally available for SE and Sport models.

The new BMW 4 Series can also be optionally fitted with the Digital Cockpit multifunctional instrument cluster, giving the driver different visualisation options for all displays depending on the driving experience mode selected.

BMW M4 Coupé and M4 Convertible.

The BMW M4 Coupé and BMW M4 Convertible now come with Bi-LED headlights, with a darkened glass surround, as standard. Available as an option are the new BMW Icon Adaptive LED headlights that feature a new hexagonal 'Icon' LED daytime running light - lifted from the 2012 Concept BMW 4 Series Coupé design. In addition, a number of styling touches give the BMW 4 Series interior an even more sophisticated appeal.

Both models also feature the updated Professional Navigation system as standard in addition to further ConnectedDrive features.
