The new BMW 4-Series has been caught testing again on a highway in Europe. The photos were captured by Stefan for BimmerToday and show an almost production-ready BMW 435i with M Sport package in Estoril Blue Metallic.
The BMW 435i will replace the current 335i. Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder developing 228kW of power. It is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed automatic.
The 4-Series range will start with the 137 kW (184 hp) 420i and 420d and top off with the 435i. In addition to the rear-wheel-drive, the 4-Series will be offered in North America with an all-wheel-drive option in the form of 435i xDrive.
The BMW 4-Series is due to hit showrooms in Europe in late 2013 and the rest of the world in early 2014.
