BMW 4 Series Convertible - in the markets later this year
|   Sunday, June 23, 2013
Soon after the release date of the latest BMW 4 Series Coupe, a new convertible version is in the news as well which is scheduled in the end of 2013. The company claims that the 4-Series convertible will be a cheaper alternative to the high-end convertible model of 6-Series and specifically focused at younger audience. The convertible is named as 4-Series Cabrio. The model will be inspired by the aggressive design elements of the 5-Series and 6-Series with squared headlamps and wider eyebrows.
The features of 3-Series will be included in this line. The trademark wide kidney grille will have a 3D style just like the latest BMW cars. The tale-lamps are also slightly wider as compared to other models.

The 4-Series convertible will be provided with the modern four- and six-cylinder engines similar to the other BMW models and a new 240-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine but it is not official yet. It is expected that the new convertible will be revealed around mid of 2013 and sales will start in the end of the same year.

The available models will be 428i, which will likely come with the new 240hp (179 kW) and 345 Nm of torque (255 lb-ft) 2.0-litre engine as described above, and a 435i, which would come with a 306hp (224 kW) and 406 Nm of torque (300 lb-ft) with 3.0-liter engine. Both engines will come with either a manual transmission or automatic 8-speed transmission, and xDrive should also be installed in the both. So, the 4-Series will share the highly powerful engines with the 3-Series but in addition will come with 4-wheel drive system. There are also some rumors that the convertible will stick to the hard-top foldable roof. We cannot discuss much about the interiors of the car as yet but definitely the room will be pretty much sufficient enough as in the 4-Series Coupe. 


As compared to the 3 Series convertible, the new 4-Series has a sleeker roofline and aggressive front end which is wider. The 4-Series convertible is a design for 4 passengers with somewhat comfortable space for luggage. Pretty much similar to the Coupe version, the 4-Series Convertible will also have low center of gravity and a wider body which will help in stronger road grip in high speed driving. So, if you are fond of driving and love to push the race paddle then this car is made for you. The powerful steering provides the driver with appropriate control over the car.

However, many things still depend upon the release of the convertible in the markets later this year. Currently, the rumors are based upon the link of the convertible with its coupe version. It is still not confirmed that whether the design is similar to BMW 4-Series Coupe or to what extent the design elements are taken from the 5-Series and 6-Series model lines. Whatever might be the case, BMW 4-Series Convertible is highly anticipated model specifically due to its similarity to the classy and expensive 6-Series version but in comparatively lower price.
