The brand new BMW 4 Series has already appeared in full view. A day before the official unveiling, we can take a first look at the striking newcomer.
It seems that someone with a brochure for the new BMW 4-series has not been able to curb his enthusiasm, as these photos appear on the French forum Worldscoop. They show the brand new BMW 4-series (G20) completely, albeit in still poor quality. The eye-catching nose and the back no longer hold any secrets for the official unveiling, which only takes place tomorrow. As expected, the new 4-series has a remarkably different nose than the 3-series with which the car shares its base. The large grille, with the optically connected ‘kidneys’, gives the 4-series its very own face. The sharply shaped headlight units, with LED binoculars in it, further contribute to that. All in all, it is strongly reminiscent of Concept 4, which shone in Frankfurt a few years ago.
The rear of the 4-series Coupé, a better-kept secret to this day, also differs considerably from the 3-series. Although the layout of the rear lights is very reminiscent of that of the 3-series, it is clear that BMW started designing the 4-series with a blank sheet of paper. The two-door has a pretty far rear window that ends in a relatively modest C-pillar. Less modest are the ‘hips’ of the 4-series, which seem to have a wider wheelbase than the 3-series.
Although technical details are still hidden, of course, we can assume that the 4-series follows the 3-series for a large part, at least in terms of drive. This means that the car will have a rear and four-wheel drive and more petrol and diesel variants. Probably the offer starts with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 184 hp, although it is not inconceivable that also the 156 hp strong version of that engine will come to the 4-series. At the very top of the range, the M4 will eventually be launched, the unveiling of which will take until September. It gets 510 hp out of its 3.0-liter six-in-line, as we already know. Tomorrow we’ll know more, and BMW itself will draw the curtain for the new 4-series.
