Car Tech Video: BMW 4 Series

1:46 /

Realizing the the current 3 Series line has lost some of the sporty intentions that made it such a popular model, BMW debuts the 4 Series, kicking the 3 Series up a notch by giving it a powerful motor and some Audi-inspired tech as well.

The most recent generation of the BMW 3 Series has not been quite the ultimate driving machine that we've come to expect. I felt that car's a little bit deluded and in fact, the last one I drove didn't feel much different than a Camray. Fortunately, somebody at BMW realized this and came up with the all-new 4 Series. This new model is the sports car. This is the ultimate driving machine. This is the one that serious drivers are gonna wanna have. Of course, it'll only comes in a coupe version which lets you know it's for serious drivers and being in a BMW, we know what's under the hood. This being the 435i, of course, we have a 3-liter straight 6 with twin turbochargers. That makes about 300 horsepower. There's also gonna be a 428 and that'll have the new 4-cylinder with turbochargers that will do 240 horsepower. The 4 Series will also get BMW's latest series of cabin electronics. This is the newest iDrive system. It's an evolution of the current one. The dial-- the center dial now has a touchpad on top so you can enter in letters just by scrolling, tracing them on the top of that dial. That's a new innovation from BMW and it sort of copies what Audi's been doing with the touch pad thing too. BMW fans, of course, are gonna be waiting for the M4 version of this car. But that's not it. BMW has this 4 Series with a lot of the end performance package stuff on it, but this is not the actual M4. We'll have to wait and see what that one looks like when it comes out.
