The BMW 4 Series is getting a little more expressive as the company introduces an updated coupe and convertible model.
Set to launch globally in March, the cars have received a mild refresh that sees them fitted with sharper-looking headlights and available Laserlight taillights. The latter comes standard on the M440i and features “laser diodes that illuminate bundles of glass fibers, producing attractive three-dimensional light graphics.”
Elsewhere, customers will find new 19-inch wheels and a revised color palette including Cape York Green metallic and Vegas Red metallic. The 430i variants feature matte chrome accents and a new mesh intake design, while the M440i features a new gloss black grille with M badging.
The sporty version also features black tailpipe finishers as well as gloss black accents, replacing the previous Cerium Gray accents. Buyers looking for something more aggressive can get the optional M Carbon Exterior Package.
Minor updates continue inside, too, as the cars are equipped with new steering wheels with illuminated controls as well as gear shift paddles. Buyers will also find standard sport seats, revised ambient lighting and new air vents. Other highlights include iDrive 8.5 and the familiar Curved Display.
Under the hood of the 430i is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with mild hybrid technology. The engine also features a number of upgrades, including “redesign of the intake ports and combustion chambers” as well as “innovations in the areas of camshaft control, injection, ignition system and exhaust gas routing.” Despite all the changes, output remains unchanged at 255 hp (190 kW / 259 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
The 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine in the M440i is new and benefits from a mild hybrid system capable of delivering 11 hp (8 kW / 11 PS) and 200 Nm (148 lb-ft) of torque. “10 seconds in total.” As a result, the powertrain has a total output of 386 hp (288 kW / 391 PS) and 398 lb-ft (539 Nm) of torque; that’s a slight increase over last year’s model, which was rated at 382 hp and 369 lb-ft, respectively.
The models will arrive in the United States for the 2025 model year, with pricing starting at $50,700 for the 430i Coupe and $58,700 for the 430i Convertible. Upgrading to the M440i Coupe costs $64,250, while the performance-focused top model starts at $72,250.
