Providing the very first look at what the new 4 Series will look like, photos of the car as a thinly veiled concept have leaked. The pictures are also the first confirmation that from now on BMW’s 3 Series Coupe will wear the 4 Series badge.
While similar in style to the 3 Series sedan, this concept model sports more aggressive body work, including dramatic sculpting on the front bumper that works with the more pointed front grille. Also notable are the gills on the fenders, while it’s easy to see that style elements have been adapted from the 6 Series.
The series of leaked photos also provides a first look at the car’s interior, which shares cues with the 3 Series, though is expected to get a 2+2 seating layout.
Few surprises are expected under the hood, with both a 428i model and 335i model planned, with the former delivering 240 hp from a 2.o-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, while the latter will make 300 hp from a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six.
The 4 Series Coupe Concept is expected to make its official world premiere at the Detroit Auto Show on January 14th.
