Will The New BMW 4-Series Look Like This?

Not only is BMW premiering the all-new 3-Series at the ongoing Paris Auto Show, but it’s also provided us with an excellent idea of what the latest 4-Series will look like.

Despite its badge, the 4-Series is little more than the two-door version of the 3-Series. Consequently, the updated BMW 4-Series will premiere with practically all the same new design elements as its four-door sibling. This rendering from Aksyonov Nikita shows what it could look like.

Compared to the previous-gen 4-Series, the new car will adopt a pair of more aggressive headlights inspired by those of the 5-Series. Additionally, the front kidney grilles have been sharpened and enlarged to give the car some additional character. Other alterations include more aggressive air intakes and sharp character lines running horizontally across the sides.

Like the 3-Series, the new BMW 4-Series will probably be slighter larger than its predecessor and adopt a lengthened wheelbase.

Additionally, the 4-Series should be offered with most of the same engine configurations as the 3er. Consequently, initial models are expected to include a TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 187 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) in 420d guise and a petrol-powered 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 258 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) for the 430i.

Down the road, BMW’s M performance division will get its hands on the new 4-Series. It may develop warm-performance models like an M440i and M440i xDrive and will certainly create an all-new M4.

Like the old 4-Series, the new model will be sold in a selection of different body styles, including as a Convertible.

    you can bet the new 4 will have a different front end and taillights just like the previous gen. its not like the c class whr the front end remains the same

    Honestly, I saw that photo and thought, its a green version of the original picture.

    Your renderings suck!

    Of course that’s not what the new 4 series is gonna look like. Jeez, try using some spy shots for the renderings next time instead of just photoshop’ing out 2 doors and changing the color. You could’ve at least lowered the roof while you were at it, but I guess that would’ve been too much work.

    I don’t mind the look of the 3 Series, but it does not work for the 4 Series. I like how brands like Lexus made their IS/GS and RC look completely different. I think the 4 Series needs more distinction from the 3 Series than this.

  • Mr. EP9

    No, that’s dumb and ugly.

  • Bo Hanan

    It’s like Bangle never left…

  • Tinky-Winky

    I hope the new 4-series’ design differs more form the 3-series than the previous generation.
