Concept 4? Let's keep that in the past, shall we?
BMW on Wednesday unveiled a host of teaser images and specifications for the upcoming 4 Series, which should debut later this year as a 2021 model.
From what I can see in the previews, the 4 looks like it should bear more than a passing resemblance to the new 3 Series.
The headlights look sharper, the body looks a little more sculpted and -- perhaps the best part -- the grille appears blissfully proportional.
In its release, BMW promises that the 4 Series will better stand apart from its four-door sibling this time around.
The body is slipperier, decreasing the coefficient of drag by 0.015.
The 4 Series is also a full two inches closer to the ground, which means it should be more fun to toss around.
The new BMW M440i xDrive Coupe will combine a 374-horsepower, 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system.
The extra juice can be used for efficiency's sake, prolonging stop-start time and permitting lighter engine loads at times, but it can also provide an additional 11 hp (and an unspecified amount of torque) when a driver smashes the gas pedal.
An eight-speed automatic transmission will send that hustle to all four wheels through BMW's M Sport differential.
