The striking front end of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé shines the spotlight on its standalone character. The large, vertically emphasised BMW kidney grille angles forwards and extends down almost to the lower edge of the front apron. Its standard air intakes have a mesh structure of the sort only previously seen on M models. As a defining element of the front end, the grille stands confidently at its centre. With its upright kidneys connected in the centre, it reprises a design feature from the company’s past – one shared with legendary brand classics, such as the BMW 328 and BMW 3.0 CSi – and adds its own modern twist.
The slim headlights of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé reach well into the front wheel arches. Full-LED headlights are fitted as standard, while Adaptive LED Headlights with BMW Laserlight are available as an option. This equipment item also comes with the cornering light and adaptive cornering functions with variable road illumination optimised for urban and motorway driving. At speeds above 60 km/h (37 mph), BMW Laserlight increases high-beam range to a maximum 550 metres and follows the course of the road dynamically.
Cleanly designed surfaces, high-quality materials and the driver-focused layout of the cockpit define the premium ambience and singularly performance-centric interior design of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé. Sports seats and a newly designed sports leather steering wheel come as standard. Together with the coordinated design of the instrument panel and door panel trim, the high-set centre console generates an enveloping environment for the front seat occupants. The standard acoustic glass for the windscreen further improves comfort over long distances.
The new BMW M440i xDrive Coupé is equipped with mild hybrid technology, as are the diesel models. Fitting a powerful 48V starter-generator and a second battery allows far more brake energy to be regenerated and stored. This energy is used not just for supplying the electrical system, but also for lightening the combustion engine’s workload and boosting its power.
