BMW’s Exterior Design Boss Talks New 4-Series Convertible

For someone who is familiar with the new BMW 4-Series Coupe, the convertible version will come as no surprise as far as the styling is concerned. Its design is identical to the coupe’s up to the waistline, with the folding metal roof above it forming a more upright cabin than on the coupe, similar to the 3-Series Convertible.

Like its predecessor, the 4-Series Convertible comes with a hard-top folding roof, which means there is not a lot of space in the boot once the roof goes down. I guess that’s a compromise one can easily accept in order to experience driving with the wind going thorough his or her hair, especially since the car looks much better with the top down.

In this latest video, BMW has its exterior design chief Domagoj Dukec talk us through the 4-Series Convertible’s styling highlights.

So without further ado, scroll down to hear what he has to say about the car’s exterior and interior styling.
