BMW 4 Series Convertible Spied Top Down in the Snow
We’ve recently spotted quite a few BMWs being tested in the snow, and it makes sense, the German company wants to make sure its vehicles can handle any climate. Which brings us to these spy photos of a BMW 4 Series convertible getting it on without a top, in the cold.
Are these test drivers just the ultimate convertible fan-boys, choosing to drive the car roofless, despite the cold climate, or are they testing the comfort, and strength of the new 4-series HVAC system?
We’re thinking the latter, look closely and all the little details of the 4-Series convertible are revealed. This two door will likely sport the same engine options as the 3 series, meaning a 428i model with a 240 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and a 435i model with a 300 hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Based on the arrangement of the tailpipes, the pics here are of the four-cylinder model.
Just like the 4-series coupe, this convertible will take inspiration from the bigger BMW 6 Series. Does that mean that the 4 Series convertible will exclusively available with a soft-top? Only time will tell, but based on the current generation 3 Series convertible, which is available with a folding retractable hard top, we’re thinking the new 4 Series will also be available with it as well.
