BMW is overhauling the 3-series Coupe will be replaced in 2013 by the new 4-series Coupe and Convertible previewed in this remarkably production ready concept car.
BMW 4-series in detail
This 4-series BMW car will be shown at the 2013 Detroit auto show but CAR understands the production versions will be delivered to dealers by summer 2013.Coupes come first, followed by the 4-series Convertible, which sticks with the failure hard top solution, albeit further refined. And this time there’ll be an extra body style: a 4-series Gran Coupe.
Due in 2014, this is a four-door coupe in the mould of a baby Merc CLS. We’ve seen a similar action on the 6-series 4dr and BMW aims to repeat the trick with its smaller brother.No word yet on the engine in the BMW Concept 4-series Coupe, but it’s safe to say the road going two-doors will mirror the loftier echelons of the 3-series range, at launch at least.
That means a diet of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, mostly turbo charged and all tweaked by well-organized Dynamics cleverness to trim emissions and fuel consumption.
