2020 BMW 4-Series Convertible Shaping Up To Take On The Open-Top C-Class

Six years after entering production, the current 4-Series is getting ready to be replaced by a new generation which is currently in the testing phase, with a prototype of the Convertible spied testing at the track recently.

With camo still covering a large portion of its body, it’s tricky to spot the visual updates, although we can styling influences from the latest 3-Series, as well as a grille inspired by the new Z4.

BMW has also opted to ditch the folding hard top in favor of a soft one that will save weight and open up more boot space as well.

The entire dashboard layout, complete with the center console and steering wheel, as well as the door panels and seats, will be carried over from the 3-Series. It goes without saying that the new 4-Series will come with all the latest tech, such as a digital instrument cluster, head-up display, an advanced infotainment system and ambient lighting, to name but a few. Reassuring users will be a wide range included in the Active Guard Plus suite that’s standard on the latest 3-Series too.

Look no further than BMW’s premium compact sedan when it comes to the engines, too, with most (if not all) of its turbocharged four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel units carrying over. Finally, some time after the 4-Series Convertible launches, likely next year, an iPerformance plug-in hybrid will be added to the lineup.

    It looks good actually so far. I’ve been always more of a Benz guy than a bmw fan, but I never really liked the latest version of the C class.

    Well it doesn’t need to because the class convertible will be dead


    the coupe should be revealed first

  • Greg Richards

    This looks bigger than the 8 series cabriolet the rear seats should be bigger. I like it.

  • Six Thousand Times

    A refreshing return to form

  • SteersUright

    Wow, what an ugly roof. Also, its so damn large it looks more Mustang than BMW. Sorry, this overall size and shape has little appeal to me. Will need to hold final thoughts when camo comes off though.

    the rear looks awfully Bangle-ish…
