2020 BMW 4 Series Coupe Styling Evokes The 8 Series In First Spy Shots

Ever since BMW launched the all-new 3 Series G20 last year brand aficionados started wondering what the two-door version will look like.

We’re obviously talking about the next-generation 4 Series, which has only been spied in convertible guise so far. We can now bring you the first spy shots of the two-door coupe version as a test prototype was snapped by our photographers on a car transporter.

Thankfully, it didn’t feature shape-distorting plastic camo so what you see in the photos is what you’ll get — this is the finished item with the final production headlights and taillights. Actually, the development seems to be more advanced than in the case of the drop-top version which still wears provisional lights.

The shape of the 2020 BMW 4 Series Coupe does send an 8 Series vibe, especially when seen from the front. Obviously, the 4 is not that long but that will play in its favor when it comes to agility. The elongated headlights and taillights with a similar signature seem inspired by the 8 Series as well.

We don’t have photos of the new 4 Series Coupe’s interior yet but previous spy shots of the 4 Series Convertible revealed that it looks very similar to the 3 Series.

The 4 Series Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe will source all engine and transmission options from the new 3 Series. Expect four- and six- turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain. The xDrive AWD system will be available or standard for the more powerful engines.

Word on the street is that even the range-topping 2020 BMW M4 performance model will offer switchable all-wheel-drive. We’ll learn more about that next year when most of the redesigned 4 Series lineup is expected to debut.

    looking quite good actually. But, I truly hope they’ve made them better to drive. The 4 series coupes feel like sedans these days, being so massive, not really responsive nor agile. Definitely good looking though. Some rear steering, shorter gearing, and faster steering plus a weight reduction might all help. I guess that’d be the M4, lol. But, given the M4 is out of reach for most, would love to see an “is” version that takes the M4 suspension and pairs it with the 440i’s (or heck, even the 430i’s) engine to compete favorably (and destroy) with the C43, S4, etc.
