BMW Launches New 4 Series17 June 2020
BMW’s latest offering has certainly raised a few eyebrows and definitely split opinion across the motoring world.
The BMW 4 series has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-turbo-charged petrol engine and comes as standard with an eight-speed steptronic transmission.
It’s expected to achieve between 48.7 and 53.3mpg miles to the gallon and its CO2 emissions are between 122 to 132g/km.
The interior boasts of new sports style front seats with contoured seat bolsters to provide maximum support. It also features a new larger screen with active nav-package and CarPlay.
However, it’s the exterior that has the motoring world talking the most. It has a brand-new grille design which is being described as a mix of ‘brash’, ‘massive’ and ‘bean-shaped’. Questions have been raised about the ‘hole’ effect and why it looks like the number plate was an afterthought. In simple terms though – it just looks BIG and some would argue – unnecessarily big.
Parts of the car – namely the wings, bonnet and doors - are made from aluminium to make it lighter.
Prices start at £39,870 for the 420i and are expected to each up to £53,875 for the M440i xDrive. The first delivery is expected in October 2020.
