Santa Barbara Auto Group illustrates the exciting changes slated for the BMW 4-Series concept in the upcoming year.
BMW announced late last year that they will be replacing the 3-series, 2-door coupe with the 2014 4-series concept, a stand-alone line of coupes that will become available towards the end of 2013. With the 4-Series, BMW looks ahead to a new generation of sporty mid-range coupes.
Concept Model Revealed in Detroit
At the recent NAIAS Detroit Auto Show, a finished concept car was unveiled. Many details of the new line are still being refined, but the body styling and interior are expected to adhere to what was presented in Detroit.
An Athletic Exterior
The styling of the new BMW 4-Series is imbued with athleticism and power, paired with elegant styling and graceful lines. The 4-series is wider, flatter, and longer than the current styling of the 3-series coupe, marrying aspects of a roadster and a sedan and providing a sharper driving dynamic. The new 4-series will feature an aggressive front end and kidney grille, modeled after the 3-series with chrome accents, curvier lines, and newly positioned air dams behind the front tires to accentuate the sportiness of the vehicle.
Elegant Handcrafted Interior
Similarly, the interior of the 4-series is soft, spacious, and luxurious. The cabin surrounds the drivers and passengers in elegance, featuring hand-crafted materials. The driver is ergonomically encircled by the most important driving controls to ensure all functions are within convenient reach. Stylish design details include natural chestnut wood trim and available premium leather with contrasting stitching.
Available Model Trims
BMW has also announced that the 4-series will be available in four models, a turbocharged 4-cylinder 428i, turbocharged 6-cylinder 435i, and a retractable hardtop convertible. There are also plans to launch an M4 BMW as well.
The BMW 4-Series is not expected to arrive in showrooms until late in 2013, but interested drivers can learn more about the exciting new model by contacting their local Santa Barbara BMW dealer – the Santa Barbara Auto Group.
