BMW 4 Series Coupe - An Efficient and Impressive Way to Travel
|   Tuesday, August 13, 2013
BMW has launched quite a few designing marvels in the past few years although the 4 Series coupe is one of the most intricately designed vehicles in the lot. The Coupe is also one of the most important vehicles considering its suave lines, two-door structure and the traditional body form. The 4 Series Coupe is visually very different from that of the 3 Series and design head Adrian van Hooydonk is quite enthralled with the Coupe.

The 4 Series Coupe looks quite confident while the swept back silhouette looks great on the car.
The vehicle is based on a wide track which gives the Coupe a wide stance on road. Road presence is immense and the typical BMW style statements remain on the vehicle. The trademark chromed grille look good along with the protruded wheel arch along with the larger rims.
BMW has paid attention to the rear wheel drive train of the car while the underpinnings have been efficiently monitored. The wheel structure of the car is actually 25 kg lighter than any other vehicle in its range. BMW has used lightweight aluminum, reinforced plastics and carbon fiber on the vehicle and these combined, keep the general weight in check.

Torsion rigidity has been increased by 60 percent which gives the vehicle a reserved yet agile stance while cornering. The dampers and suspension settings have been adjusted accordingly which makes the car equally comfortable and fun to drive. The 4 Series Coupe has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the young drivers and this car is highly efficient and responsive, which makes driving quite fun.

The dimensions of the car have increased since the previous generation while the ride height has been lowered to enhance the center of gravity. The chassis is well balanced and this gives a poised drive feel. The engine is equally responsive and works efficiently at low, mid and high range. The Coupe is powered by a four cylindered 2.0 liter Common Rail Diesel Engine from BMW and this is a tried and tested power train.

The engine displaces 242 BHP on the 428i Coupe although the displacement figures on the other models vary. The turbo charged, six cylindered engine on the 435i Coupe is however more fun to be around as this is the range topping model. BMW has used the revolutionary xDrive on all 4 Series Coupes and this controls the general performance of the vehicle depending upon the road condition. The xDrive is quite dominant and rivals the Audi Quattro quite effortlessly.

The competition in the two door Coupe segment has been high for quite a while now and car makers are coming up with new and revolutionary ideas to keep the market from stagnating. These are difficult times and people are waiting for a boom in the economic sector. BMW has designed its range to be fuel efficient and performance friendly and hence it is a staunch rival to the Mercedes Benz E Class and the Audi A5 Coupe.
