The new BMW 4-Series coupe picks up where last year's 3-Series coupe left off. The 4-Series expertly blends a sporty, spirited driving dynamic with visual appeal, high-quality materials and precise craftsmanship to offer an exclusive feel at an inviting point of entry. The premium coupe market is a crowded one, with established rivals like the Audi A5, Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupes and Infiniti Q60 all vying for attention. With a convertible model due later in the year and a performance-focused M variant likely on the horizon, the 4-Series is the most exciting offering from Bavaria in a long time.
The BMW 4-Series is an all-new model for 2014, available as a 2-door coupe or convertible. The cars replace the 3-Series coupe and convertible models. The 4-Series is offered as both the 428i, with a 240-hp turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder, and as the 435i, with a 300-hp turbocharged 3.0L inline-6 engine. Both engines can be paired with either a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, or a no-cost optional 6-speed manual. BMW claims the 435i coupe will do 0?60 mph in just 5 seconds when equipped with the automatic, while the 428i coupe hits the mark in 5.7 seconds. Both trims come with rear-wheel drive but can be equipped with BMW's capable xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The 428i coupe is priced from $41,425, while the 435i starts at $46,925. MSRP for the 428i convertible is stated at $49,675, while the 435i convertible starts at $55,825.
