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.
