It was only a matter of time before our spies would spot the next-generation 2020 BMW 4-Series Coupe again and they did, on the back of a transporter.
The camouflage on the two test cars is pretty tight, letting us witness with clarity the bodywork’s dynamic lines. The new model retains the wide hips of the outgoing 4-Series, with slimmer headlights and taillights as well as a higher shoulder line to distinguish itself more clearly from its sister 3-Series.
We have already seen the 4-Series Convertible, which will revert back to a fabric soft top. BMW will also offer a four-door Grand Coupe version of the new 4-Series, giving plenty of options to new and old customers.
The differences between 4- and 3-Series are expected to be less obvious once you step inside, as is the case for BMW’s 2-door compact coupe. That means that the 2020 BMW 4-Series is getting the same driver-centric dash design with the sedan, along with all the latest tech and features.
BMW’s Operating System 7.0 will of course be present, along with top-tier materials and trim options to spice things up, should you wish to.
The powertrain range will mirror that of the 3-Series, meaning a wide range of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, as well as the optional xDrive all-wheel drive system in specific models. New plug-in hybrid models are also expected to be added, including the 430e which will pair a four-cylinder 2.0-liter petrol with an electric motor to offer a combined 248hp (252PS) and 309lb-ft (420Nm).
Of course the range will be completed with the arrival of the M4, which is expected to pack a redesigned twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine, along with a switchable all-wheel drive system, the latter being possibly an option.
