BMW has rejuvenated its 4 Series line-up with revised styling, sharper dynamics and wider personalisation options.
It will take a good pair of eyes to spot the subtle changes but the facelifted 4 Series accentuates its sporty character with restyled LED headlights and LED taillights. The front bumper air intakes have been slightly enlarged while the bonnet and rear apron have been redesigned.
Inside, updates to the interior include the new electroplated detailing, chrome applications and centre console in high-gloss black. Another visual highlight is the double stitching on the instrument panel, while three new upholstery colours together with three new interior trim strips provide even greater personalisation.
Two new exterior paint finishes – Snapper Rocks Blue and Sunset Orange – are now available exclusively for the new BMW 4 Series models. There is also one new model-specific wheel design each for the Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport variants.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe now come with a stiffer suspension set-up promising even sportier handling without compromising ride comfort. This applies not only to the standard suspension, but also to the M Sport suspension and the Adaptive suspension. BMW claims the new 4 Series range now boast even more assured straight-line stability and more communicative steering. High performance tyres are available as a factory-fitted option for all models from the 430d and 430i upwards.
The 2017 BMW 4 Series carries over the range of petrol and diesel powertrains. Three petrol engines are available (420i, 430i and 440i) with output ranges from 135 kW / 270Nmp in the BMW 420i up to 240 kW / 450Nm in the BMW 440i. The petrol models are complemented with a single diesel option (420d) offering 140kW/400Nm.
New navigation and instrumentation displays.
The optional Navigation system Professional for the new BMW 4 Series now features an interface with large tile-style control pads that is even easier to use. The control pads can be arranged as desired and display a constantly updated version of the linked menu content, making operation even more intuitive for users.
The 4 Series can be optionally fitted with the Multifunctional Instrument Display, giving the driver the choice of different visualisation options for all displays depending on the driving experience mode selected.
