Best Spy Shots Yet of New BMW 4-Series Convertible

Even though it isn’t customary for automakers to offer both a coupe and a hardtop convertible version of the same model, BMW will continue to use this formula on the successor of the current open-top 3-Series that we will come to know as the 4-Series Convertible and which was spied in its most revealing form yet.

This latest prototype has dropped most of the camouflage allowing us to see the car’s three-piece retractable metal roof, as well as other parts of the body in production trim, such as the 4-Series-specific nose and headlamps, the shape of the tail and a glimpse of the tail lamps.

Along with the name change, we anticipate a small hike in price as BMW will surely attempt to move the 4-Series range of models, which, aside from the Convertible, will also include a coupe and the four-door Gran Coupe, more upmarket.

That won’t change the fact that under the hood, consumers will find a similar choice of turbocharged four- and six-cylinder gasoline and four-cylinder diesel engines (the latter for Europe) as the newest 3-Series. BMW has been mum in regards of an M4 iteration of the Convertible, but we suspect that it will follow the presentation of the coupe model.

We’ll likely see the first photos of the 4-Series Coupe in late summer, with the world debut to take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, while the Convertible will probably be revealed later in the fall.
