2017 BMW 4 Series
The 2017 BMW 4 Series represents a subtle refresh for all versions of the family, Coupe, Convertible, Gran Coupe, as well as the mighty M4. Although the pre-facelift model still looks very sharp, I’m quite sure most BMW fans will get excited about the results. The front fascia includes a pair of new full-LED headlights, with all members across the range featuring standard LED fog lights. BMW has also fiddled with the graphics of the LED taillights, while small tweaks to the air intakes, rear apron and also to the line-specific trim are part of the aesthetic modifications. Moreover, the Life Cycle Impulse of the 4 Series adds Sunset Orange and Snapper Rocks Blue body paints, as well as fresh alloys for each equipment line: Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury, and M Sport.
On the inside, the facelifted 4 Series welcomes all with more chrome accents and a high-gloss black finish on the center console. The instrument panel shows off double stitching while three new trim strips and a trio of upholsteries have been added to the options list. Speaking of which, an optional Navigation system Professional featuring an updated interface with big tile-style control pads and a customizable instrument cluster can also be had. On the technical side, the 4 Series Coupe and the 4 Series Gran Coupe pack a stiffer suspension setup with430i/430d upwards owners to benefit from high-performance tires as well. No less than 31 model and powertrain variants are on offer, with output of the gasoline units varying between 184 hp (135 kW) and 326 hp (240 kW). On the diesel side, the 420d has 190 hp (140 kW) on tap whereas the 435d xDrive provides 313 hp (230 kW). At the top of the range, the M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible benefit from 425 hp in the standard guise and with 444 hp if you go for the optional Competition Package. Thoughts?
