BMW 4-Series Coupe is revealed. From now on, BMW 3-Coupe is gone forever. BMW decided to rebrand the coupe and cabrio models. Instead of sharing the same brand with the four-door sedan, the coupe and cabrio models are branded with even numbers. That’s why, we see 4-Series Coupe. Actually, this is not something new. BMW announced this branding strategy nearly ten years ago, however it took quite long time to put into practice.
Anyway, BMW 4-Series is based on the 3-Series with more sportive driving character. And also offers more aerodynamic design philosophy, which is already presented on the new BMW X5; Air Curtain and Air Breathers. With the help of these technologies, BMW 4-Series manages to reduce the aerodynamic drag force to 0.26! Moreover, Proactive Driving Assistant advises drivers based on the navigation data for the best moment to reduce the throttle while approaching to corners or speed limits. Hence, this improves the consumption figures. Also, ECO PRO mode decouples the 8-speed automatic gearbox while coasting to reduce engine braking and enables to reduce fuel consumption.
Lastly, BMW 428i is powered by a 2-lt petrol engine with 245 HP and 350 Nm of torque. 5.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h and the top speed is limited to 250 km/h. BMW 435i is powered by a 3-lt petrol engine with 306 HP and 380 Nm of torque and 5.1 seconds to reach 100 km/h and as usual 250 km/h top speed. And 420d is 2-lt diesel with 184 HP with 380 Nm of torque. 7.3 seconds to reach 100 km/h with the top speed of 232 km/h. All engines are available with 8-speed automatic gearbox and xDrive all-wheel drive is available across the engine range.
BMW 4-Series Coupe is the second best alternative after the 6-Series! Also, BMW offers very high quality interior to compete with the perfection of the Audi!
