BMW has announced the all-new 4 Series Coupe will arrive in Australian showrooms in October, priced from $70,900 plus on road costs..
As reported when unveiled earlier this year, the 4 Series takes a bold styling approach to stand out from its 3 Series sibling, most noticeably with a massive iteration of the brand’s signature double kidney grille.
The entry level 420i and mid-spec 430i will each have a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine of differing tune, generating 135kW/300Nm and 190kW/400Nm respectively.
The all-wheel-drive M440i xDrive tops the range — until the M4 emerges, anyway — with a 3.0-litre twin turbo straight six with 285kW/500Nm on tap.
Standard gear includes an M Sport Package, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights with high beam assistant, electric seats, head-up display, wireless smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, digital radio and more.
At $88,900, the 430i adds a hefty $18,000 to the 420i’s asking price.
On top of the more potent engine, it also adds adaptive M suspension, a digital key, leather ‘Vernasca’ upholstery, M Sport brakes, Parking Assistant Plus with surround view and more.
The M440i xDrive has an even bigger $28,000 premium, adding the all-wheel-drive and bigger engine plus performance and comfort features such as an M Sport differential, automatic tailgate, electric sunroof, ambient lighting, heated front seats, Harman/Kardon surround sound system and more.
Lower variants can add some extra gear without forking out for a higher spec thanks to a number of option packages, while other options include an M Carbon exterior package with a front apron air curtain, wing mirror caps, rear diffuser element and rear spoiler all made from lightweight carbon fibre to add a motorsport-inspired aesthetic.
