The BMW had teased a new concept with massive kidney-shaped grille, at Frankfurt Motor show last year. BMW has finally launched the concept car.
Codenamed G22, the 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe is based on the same Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform as its sedan brother, the latest 3 Series G20. But minus 2-doors plus extra performance capabilities. Not only the doors will differentiate the BMW 3 series and 4 series, but also the grille size now.
The BMW new 4 series now has the biggest grille size ever used by the company in a sedan, including vehicles like 7 LCI and X7 full-size SUV. But a new grille and door styles are not all new about the BMW 4 series.
Other than the above, the new 4 series will come with a mild hybrid technology, on every single powertrain. The series is to include a gasoline front with 420i, which has a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 184 PS and 300 Nm torque. Next is 430i, the same 4-cylinder config with 258 PS and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Both will be paid with 8-speed automatic transmission.
The next, and most powerful M440i xDrive, powered with a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine capable of 374 PS and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. That output can be supplemented by an extra 11 PS coming from a 48V mild-hybrid system.
The diesel lineup could be blessed by March 2021 a 430d xDrive with 286 PS and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. Also, the M440d xDrive, which ups the ante to 340 PS and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.
