The BMW Concept 4 is revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, giving us a look at what the next generation 4 Series and the new i4 will offer.
For most of us, the BMW 4 Series is nothing more than a 3 Series Coupe. But BMW want to change that.
The plan, as BMW moves forward with electric and ICE models within the same model range, seems to be to differentiate the next generation 4 Series – and its electric sibling, the BMW i4 – with its own style. And this, the BMW Concept 4, is a look at where we’re heading, said to be 85 per cent representative of the next generation 4 Series.
Just as we got used to the Bangle arse on BMWs past, we now need to get used to the in-yer-face grille sprouting across BMW’s range, and the Concept 4 gives us that in spades, although BMW say its actually a new take on the vertical grille from the old BMW 3.0 CSi.
Away from the big grille, there’s a twin headlight setup, long bonnet, small glasshouse and a set of heavily dished alloys.
Domagoj Dukec, BMW’s design boss, said:
The kidney grille has always been a signature feature of BMW cars. The BMW Concept 4 presents a confident and classy take on this iconic feature. At the same time, the BMW Concept 4 offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4 Series range
There are no images of the interior, so we assume BMW’s focus is to show us how they are going to differentiate the next 4 Series from the 3 Series, and that probably doesn’t extend to the interior.
