BMW reveals new 4 Series


BMW has taken the covers off its hotly anticipated new 4 Series coupe, which will go on sale in October.

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

It features a large front grille that dominates the front end, a departure from the sleeker styling of previous models.

The car is also longer and wider, giving an improved 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, with the 420d likely to be the most appealing to company car drivers. It emits from 121g/km and should achieve up to 62mpg.

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. It 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.

The standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional, offers a fully digital screen grouping comprising 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. Full WLTP CO2 emissions data for the range is expected to be available closer to that date.
