The new BMW 4 Series – formerly the 3 Series Coupe – has leaked out online ahead of a debut scheduled for tomorrow, 2 June 2020.
As the recent tease for the new BMW 4 Series (below) has shown, the new 4 Series Coupe will make a statement when it arrives with its double upright kidney grille, harking back to the 1960s 328. But now, thanks to leaked images online we get to see the profile of the new 4 Series too (above). Which isn’t as much of a surprise.
All will be revealed early tomorrow evening as BMW takes the wraps off the new 4 Series Officially.
New BMW 4 Series Coupe TEASED – complete with ‘Statement’ grille
BMW begins the tease for the new 4 Series Coupe with a single image showing the front of the new 4 Series, complete with big vertical kidney grille.
It’s nine years since we learnt that there would be no more BMW 3 Series Coupe, and instead the Coupe take on the 3 Series would be a standalaone model – the BMW 4 Series.
Despite that, the intervening years have seen the 4 Series arrive but not really differentiate itself much from the 3 Series, in effect continuing as a re-badged 3 Series Coupe. But that looks set to change.
Ahead of an online debut next week – 2 June 2020 – BMW has started the tease for the new 4 Series (above) with a single shadowy image of the front, and it’s clear the big vertical kidney grilles, reminiscent of the grilles on the 1960s 328 – are firmly affixed to the front of the production car.
The new 4 Series is the production take on the BMW Concept 4 we saw at Frankfurt last year (remember when we had actual car shows?), and is likely to look much the same as that car.
Further tweaks from the 3 Series are likely to include a wider track and revised suspension, as well as a performance model in the M440i xDrive with a 48V mild hybrid setup, regular petrol and diesel models and a range-topping M4.
All will be revealed on Tuesday (2 June).
