Scoop: BMW's New 4-Series Hardtop Convertible Wearing Very Little Camo

This is the next model to join BMW’s new 4-Series branded lineup after the release of the Coupe, the Convertible with a three-piece folding hardtop that is destined to enter production in November.

The pre-production prototype is almost undisguised, sans for some bits and pieces of BMW’s black-and-white decals here and there, and they can’t hide that this particular model features the optional M Sports package with a different front bumper, sculptured side skirts, a rear diffuser and bespoke alloys, along with a lower and tauter suspension.

Longer, wider but also lighter than the 3-Series Convertible it replaces, the open-top 4-Series keeps its predecessors hardtop system and four-seat layout with one of its chief rivals being the Audi A5/S5 Cabriolets that come with a fabric roof.

Engine and transmission options will be adopted from the Coupe, with the North American market to get a 240hp turbo’d 2.0-liter inline-four for the 428i, and a 300hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo six for the 435i. Europe will receive a much more comprehensive lineup that will include more four-cylinder turbocharged petrols as well as diesels.
