The new BMW 4 Series Coupé delivers both stunning performance and supreme handling capabilities, but gets a sleek and distinctive new exterior design, high quality interior, upgraded driver assistance technologies and even greater efficiencies from the introduction of the mild hybrid technology.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupé will be built at BMW Plant Dingolfing, with its worldwide launch commencing in October 2020.

At 4,768 millimetres, the new car is 128mm longer than its predecessor and 27mm wider (now 1,852mm), and its wheelbase has grown by 41mm to 2,851mm. Only 6mm has been added to the vehicle height, which is now 1,383mm. Increased track widths (+ 28mm at the front and + 18mm at the rear), short overhangs, slender pillars, long doors with frameless windows and a flowing roofline combine to deliver a sleek look.

A defining element of the striking front end is the BMW trademark kidney grille and, with its upright elements connected in the centre, it reprises a design feature from the company’s past but adds a modern twist. It is framed by surfaces with a three-dimensional structure and, like the contours of the headlights, the bonnet’s arrow-shaped lines zero in on the grille. At the outer edges of the front apron, the vertically designed intakes for the Air Curtains accentuate the width of the car.

The flanks of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé are shaped by precisely carved surfaces with a slim window graphic and a stretched roofline flowing smoothly into the tail. The design incorporates reduced surfacing above the front wheel arches, while at the rear large and distinct surfaces emphasise the new BMW 4 Series Coupé’s width and low centre of gravity. The rear end styling also incorporates slim and stylishly darkened full-LED rear lights and dual-branch tailpipes.

Full-LED headlights are fitted as standard, with two U-shaped fibre-optic light guides in the lower section serving as the daytime driving lights. Adaptive LED Headlights with BMW Laserlight, including BMW Selective Beam non-dazzling high beam assistant, are available optionally. Slim LED fog lights are standard on all models except the BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé.


The new BMW 4 Series Coupé can be ordered in M Sport model format. Large outer air intakes in the front apron and a striking rear apron with an inlay in Dark Shadow and a diffuser element in High-gloss Black showcase the two-door model’s performance credentials. Other M Sport model design features are air intake trim elements, side window surrounds and exterior mirror bases in High-gloss Black.

As well as the body features in the M Sport model, the BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé also come with a kidney grille surround, air intake trim, exterior mirror caps and trapezoidal exhaust tailpipe finishers in Cerium Grey metallic. A rear apron inlay in High-gloss Black provides an additional flourish. Added to which, BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé models can be specified with an M Carbon exterior package, which comprises front-wing air intake finishers, exterior mirror caps, a diffuser element in the rear apron and a specially moulded rear spoiler made from the lightweight material.

Cleanly designed surfaces, high-quality materials and the driver-focused layout of the cockpit define the premium and performance feel of the interior. The structure of the instrument panel is based around horizontal lines, with its width further emphasised by the contours and electroplated strips extending into the door areas. The outer edges of the high-set centre console have knee pads to cater for a sporty driving style.

The start/stop button for the engine is now positioned in a control panel in the centre console, where the newly designed selector lever is joined by the iDrive Controller and the buttons for the Driving Experience Control switch and electromechanical parking brake.

Newly developed front sport seats are standard, featuring contoured side bolsters to provide maximum support during hard cornering. All models also include front-seat heating as standard, and electrically adjustable sports seats including memory function are available for customers who choose to upgrade to the Comfort Plus package.

Vernasca leather trim comes in a choice of five colours and includes special decorative quilting and seam patterns. Extended BMW Individual Merino leather trim and BMW Individual full leather trim are also available for M Sport Pro Edition models, as well as BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé. LED ambient lighting is standard across the range.

M Sport models come complete with Sports seats with M-specific upholstery, an M leather steering wheel with more user-friendly multi-function buttons, door sill plates and digital instrument cluster display bearing the M logo, an Anthracite-coloured BMW Individual headliner and interior trim strips in Aluminium Tetragon with accent strips in Pearl-effect Chrome.  The Harman Kardon surround sound system is optionally available.

Practicality hasn’t been overlooked either, the car featuring a 40:20:40 split backrest, an array of larger storage areas and boot space that has been increased to 440 litres.

The BMW 4 Series Coupé two-door model is also the first BMW to be made available with the new M Sport Pro package.

This option includes all the elements of the M Sport model and adds the Sprint function for additional bursts of speed and a sporty engine soundtrack in the cabin when SPORT mode is activated. In addition, the M Sport brakes are featured on the BMW 420i Coupé, BMW 420d Coupé and BMW 420d xDrive Coupé, as well as 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, a rear spoiler in High-gloss Black, BMW Individual High-gloss Shadowline trim with extended features and BMW Individual lights Shadowline and M seat belts.

The M Performance Parts portfolio offers retrofit items that available include 20-inch M Performance forged light-alloy wheels in Y-spoke design with a Jet Black matt finish, a carbon-fibre front grille, front splitter and side skirt attachments, as well as aero flicks for the front apron in High-gloss Black.

Building on the M Sport model, the new M Sport Pro Edition combined the M Sport Pro package with a choice of 3 exclusive Individual Metallic exterior paints – Dravit Grey, Tansanite Blue and Aventurin Red (07/21). The new edition gains an even sportier edge with a unique 19” Jet Black Double Spoke wheel, Black High Gloss Mirror Caps and the choice between Individual Aluminium Fabric High Gloss or Piano Black interior trim.

The powertrain technology developed for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé is another area where significant advances have been made over the outgoing model. All the petrol and diesel engines belong to the Efficient Dynamics family and feature BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The introduction of mild hybrid technology with a 48V starter-generator ensures even sharper power delivery combined with reduced fuel consumption and emissions.

The range will be spearheaded by a new BMW M440i xDrive Coupé model, which features a powerful six-cylinder in- line petrol engine. The new BMW 4 Series Coupé will also be available with a choice of two four-cylinder petrol units and a four-cylinder diesel from launch. The line-up is set to expand further with the arrival of two straight-six diesel engines scheduled for March 2021.

All the engines link up as standard with the eight-speed Steptronic transmission, which can now be specified with the new optional Sprint function. BMW xDrive is also available on the four-cylinder diesel model, while the intelligent all-wheel-drive system features as standard on all six-cylinder variants.
