Think sports car and coupe together and you will have the 2019 BMW 4 Series down pat. When the news broke out about its imminent launch, we did the usual scavenger hunt to get all the information we could about the BMW 4 series including getting out hands on more than a few leaked images and the result is this review. This car stands out from the rest of the pack and soon it will become obvious as to the “why” – so let’s take a closer look at it, shall we?
2019 BMW 4 Series, an Overview:
Let’s not restate the trite and that BMW stands for luxury and while the 2019 BMW 4 Series does not come with a brand new design except for more than few changes, it does come with one important change. The addition of two new doors, set to appeal to those who prefer their cars with four doors as opposed to two. You may think the reason’s silly but it is for real and what’s more, we expect it to work as well. Either way, the pictures hardly do it justice but it seems that the BMW series 4 may come with bolder colors including a new hue of metallic blue as well.
2019 BMW 4 Series, under the hood:
The 2019 BMW 4 Series, as mentioned earlier comes with four doors but with one difference – the lift gate type of rear door. The model is as streamlined as it can get with the current design and has certainly managed to improve on its earlier variation. It comes with a tweaked front fascia, retuned nose, with tweaked grille and front bumper as well as LED headlights with cornering, daytime running LED lights and Fog lamps with the advanced trims. It also comes with an enlarged and tapered air intake which should help feed more oxygen into the car.
It also comes with a power lift gate that gives easy access to the trunk area. More importantly, it also comes with 0.55 inch wider front track as well as 0.86 inch rear track which should help improve its center of gravity as well. It also comes with an updated suspension which should help improve the driving quality. The car is indeed sleeker with well contoured side panels and the rear end gets the same treatment as the front end, as well as LED indicators, and LED taillights.
2019 BMW 4 Series interior:
The 2019 BMW 4 Series comes with a slightly fresh interior; not much has changed on the interior except for a few changes. The interior is spacious enough, and comes with curved dashboard with digital instrument cluster right in the middle. It also comes with leather plush seats, and with the higher trims, you get more choice as far as upholstery, fabric and interior trimmings are concerned. It also comes with heated seats which incidentally are adjustable, along with power steering wheels, heated mirrors as well as a large touchscreen infotainment system and advanced safety features along with optional active cruise control system.
2019 BMW 4 Series, drive train, release date, specs, prices:
The 2019 BMW 4 Series comes with two power trains, the 430i, which comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. In the more powerful 440i, a 3.0-liter inline-6 produces 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. It is expected that this model will launch by late 2018 and the price for the base model starts at $45975 and is slated to give you your money’s worth for the same.
