Richmond Hill, ON. The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupé marks the beginning of a new era for Coupés at BMW. Launched as the latest generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupé, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé embodies the very essence of dynamics and aesthetic appeal in the premium segment. The “4” in its title headlines this new product line for the Coupé and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but that any way you look at it, the new 4 Series Coupé represents something more than its BMW 3 Series cousins – 3+1, if you will. At the same time, as a true BMW Coupé, the new nomenclature brings the new BMW 4 Series Coupé in line with the larger 6 Series and 8 Series Coupés.

The new 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupé will be offered in 428i and 428i xDrive variants, featuring BMW’s award-winning TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, and in 435i and 435i xDrive variants  with the multi-award winning Twin Power Turbo 3.0-liter inline six. The 428i Coupé will be available with a standard 6-speed manual transmission or optional 8-speed sport automatic transmission, while the 428i xDrive will have the standard 8-speed sport automatic as standard equipment (no manual option). Both 435i variants will be available with either the standard 8-speed sport automatic, or an optional no-charge 6-speed manual. The 2014 BMW 428i Coupé and 428i xDrive Coupé will have base MSRPs of, respectively $44,900 and 49,000. The 2014 BMW 435i Coupé and BMW 435i xDrive Coupés will have base MSRP’s of, respectively, $54,900 and $55,600. All four variants of the BMW 4 Series Coupé will arrive in Canadian showrooms in early fall of 2013.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupé is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing BMW 3 Series Coupé, with a stretched and lower silhouette. This, together with its BMW-typical short overhangs, long hood and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, give the BMW 4 Series Coupé a visual balance. The car’s striking front end – with its characteristic BMW design features, such as the double-kidney grille, four round headlights and a large air intake in the front apron – is keen to display its family ties with the BMW 3 Series. New elements of the BMW 4 Series Coupé are the Air Breathers, which are positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches to reduce drag. The Coupé’s muscular wheel arches and wide track give an aggressive stance, with its prominent horizontal lines.

Individual equipment lines for the interior and exterior.
The interior of the BMW 4 Series Coupé presents a combination of sporty allure and exclusivity. All the controls central to driving are arranged ergonomically around the driver ensuring comfortable access to all functions. In the rear compartment, contoured seats continue the sporty theme of the BMW 4 Series Coupé. Recessed head restraints and broad, continuously molded side supports give the rear bench the appearance of two individual seats. High-grade material combinations and finish quality accentuate the premium feel of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé.

Exceptional driving dynamics.

The defining characteristics of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé are its driving dynamics and aesthetics. As always, BMW engineers have placed special focus on steering accuracy, precision, linear control response, and agility to fortify the new BMW 4 Series Coupé as the latest shape of The Ultimate Driving Machine. Sophisticated chassis technology, near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, fine-tuning in the wind tunnel, and lightweight construction all contribute to meet that goal.

The all-new BMW 4 Series Coupé has a longer wheelbase, wider track and lower ride height than the previous-generation BMW 3 Series Coupé. Its lower suspension brings the car’s center of gravity down to below 500 mm, giving it the lowest center of gravity of any car in the current BMW line-up. As a result, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé is inherently one of the sportiest series-produced cars in the BMW range.

BMW EfficientDynamics – A holistic philosophy.
In addition to its sporty driving dynamics, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé offers outstanding fuel efficiency. This is a result of the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy, which can be found in almost every aspect of the new model. The car’s lightweight construction and aerodynamic features – headlined by the groundbreaking Air Curtains and Air Breathers – also help to maximize efficiency. At its core, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé has been engineered for performance excellence, while other features including Auto Start-Stop and on-demand operation of ancillary units help lower fuel consumption and emissions as well. Use of ECO PRO mode gives the potential to cut fuel use by as much as 20 percent.

BMW ConnectedDrive.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupé uses a combination of driver assistance systems and mobility services (available as standard or optional under the BMW ConnectedDrive banner) to increase safety, comfort and infotainment usage ease and convenience. Among the highlights are a new generation of BMW Navigation System, which offers extra capability, sharper graphics and 3D elements for the map display, the full-color BMW Head-Up Display; Driving Assistant Plus, which warns the driver of a potential collision with a pedestrian, the intelligent; glare-free LED High Beam Assistant and the latest iteration of BMW Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go. As far as infotainment is concerned, efficient interface technology enables the integration of smartphones and numerous Bluetooth office functions. The latter also offers the driver the option of a dictation function with full speech recognition. Each feature has been carefully integrated to minimize the chances for driver distraction while the vehicle is in motion.
