The All-New BMW 4 Series Coupe


The All-New BMW 4 Series Coupe


The latest chapter in the story of famous BMW Coupes.

 

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – June 14, 2013 6:00pm EDT/3:00pm PDT The all-new
BMW 4 Series Coupe marks the beginning of a new era for coupes at BMW. Launched as the latest generation of BMW’s sporty mid-size Coupe, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe 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 Coupe and emphasizes not only its stand-out design, but that any way you look at it, the new 4 Series Coupe represents something more than its BMW 3 Series cousins — 3+1, if you will. At the same time, as a true BMW Coupe, the new nomenclature brings the BMW 4 Series Coupe in line with the larger 6 Series and 8 Series Coupes.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe will be offered as both a 428i, featuring BMW’s awardwinning TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and as a 435i with the multi-award winning Twin Power Turbo 3.0-liter inline six. Both will be available with a standard 8-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Both will also be offered with a choice of rearwheel drive or with optional xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system. The 2014 BMW 428i Coupe will have a base MSRP of $41,425, and the 2014 BMW 435i Coupe will have a starting price of $46,925. Both prices include destination and handling. The 2014 428i xDrive Coupe and 435i xDrive will start from $43,425 and 48,925 respectively, again inclusive of destination and handling. All four variants of the BMW 4 Series Coupe will arrive in U.S. showrooms late this summer.

The new BMW 4 Series Coupe is visibly larger in width and wheelbase than the outgoing
BMW 3 Series Coupe, and its stretched silhouette sits considerably lower to the road. This, together with its BMW-typical short overhangs, long hood and set-back passenger compartment with flowing roofline, give the BMW 4 Series Coupe a visual balance. The
car’s striking front end — with its characteristic BMW design features, such as the doublekidney 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 Coupe are the Air Breathers, which are positioned rearward of the front wheel arches to reduce drag. The Coupe’s muscular wheel arches and wide track give an aggressive stance, with its prominent horizontal lines.

BMW ConnectedDrive


BMW ConnectedDrive: Broaden Access and Expansion of Services Globally Will Include Benefits for U.S. Customers


Key benefits include standard BMW Assist eCall with Enhanced Automatic Collision Notification and BMW TeleService for 10 years in most 2014 models

 

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – June 5, 2013 BMW ConnectedDrive has been
synonymous with forward-looking concepts and technologies in the domain of
automotive connectivity for many years. By refocusing on tailor-made mobility
services and new, highly innovative service features, BMW is extending its lead in
this field. In the U.S. this will mean new standards offerings throughout the range for
the 2014 model year, a significant update to the latest BMW iDrive user interface,
the ability for customers to add services after they purchase the vehicle if they
wish. BMW ConnectedDrive will also include a range of features tailored
specifically to BMW i.

Target: BMW ConnectedDrive in many markets and for all vehicles.
From the outset, BMW ConnectedDrive has been geared toward the mobility
requirements of its users; both today and into the future. The carmaker’s
pioneering role is exemplified by the very first in-car integration of an Apple iPod® in
BMW cars back in 2004, as well as the multitude of apps for in-car use introduced
since 2011. The reorientation of services now turns comprehensive, intelligent
connectivity between passengers, vehicle and the outside world into a reality,
while the new and enhanced service features are to be made available for all
models by means of a SIM card integrated into the vehicle.

Today BMW ConnectedDrive services are available in 11 countries. Over the
course of 2013, the BMW ConnectedDrive service portfolio will be extended to an
additional 14 markets around the world. The objective is to have around five million
BMW cars linked up worldwide via ConnectedDrive with the help of the built-in
SIM card by the year 2017. This broadening of its strategy makes BMW the first
carmaker to firmly commit itself to the goal of achieving blanket connectivity. This
will see BMW customers reap the benefits of a steadily increasing number of
innovative new features and functions with high practical value.
