The Latest Generation of a Legendary Coupe now available at Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe is the latest iteration of a premium sports coupe that traces its heritage all the way back to the elegant, sports-focused BMW 327 Coupé unveiled in 1938. The new BMW 4 Series Coupé is poised to bring a whole new level of dynamic potency and stylistic individuality to the premium midsize segment. Like its earliest predecessors, the elegantly sporty two-door fuses dynamically flowing lines, a body honed to deliver agile handling, and bespoke chassis tuning to deliver exceptional performance and undeniable authenticity.
More distinctive than ever: the BMW 4 Series Coupé.
With its distinctive aesthetic and carefully directed optimisation of the body structure, powertrain and chassis technology, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé sets the benchmark for driving pleasure more definitively than ever before. A rigorous commitment to optimising the car’s proportions, aerodynamics, body stiffness and chassis mounting has resulted in extraordinarily sporty handling. Model-specific chassis technology plays a particularly important role in putting clear water between the new BMW 4 Series Coupé and the latest BMW 3 Series Sedan, and in giving it a significantly sharper character than its predecessor.
Model-specific design, low centre of gravity, optimised aerodynamics.
The standalone design of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé is clearly visible from every angle. The distinctive proportions and model-specific front-end design create an authentic showcase for the two-door car’s sporty character profile.
The 4 Series Coupé’s wheelbase is particularly long when measured against its competitors, and its rear track is 23 millimetres wider than the 3 Series Sedan’s. That is the perfect recipe for balancing supreme ride comfort with excellent cornering dynamics. Added to which, enhanced aerodynamics, a 57-millimetre reduction in vehicle height compared with the 3 Series Sedan and a resultant 21-millimetre lower centre of gravity all benefit sports performance. A specially tailored package of bracing elements to add further rigidity to the body structure also provides the building blocks for smile-inducing agility and precision handling. Agility is further enhanced by a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.
Instantaneous power delivery, sublime performance.
Available at launch in Kuwait will be the powerful, yet efficient petrol engines in the BMW 430i Coupé and BMW 420i Coupé. Both models boast remarkably sporty performance characteristics and superior efficiency following an extensive upgrade of their respective four-cylinder petrol engines, both of which are part of the current Efficient Dynamics family and feature the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
The more powerful of the 2.0 litre pair generates maximum output of 190 kW/258 hp – an increase of 5 kW/6 hp on the engine it replaces – and delivers peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) between 1,550 and 4,400 rpm. This enables the new BMW 430i Coupé to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) from rest in 5.8 seconds.
The four-cylinder engine in the new BMW 420i Coupé is another shining example of efficiency and the free-revving performance associated with BMW power units. Its maximum output of 135 kW/184 hp and peak torque of 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) between 1,350 and 4,000 rpm translate into a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) time of 7.5 seconds.
All model variants in the BMW 4 Series Coupé range have been fitted with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. The latest version of the automatic transmission goes about its task of relaying the drive torque from the engine with even sharper shift characteristics and still greater efficiency.
Bespoke package of bracing elements optimises body structure.
Targeted measures for increasing the stiffness of the body structure and suspension mountings reinforce the distinct driving qualities of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé – most notably excellent agility and extremely precise steering. Bracing elements have also been added to increase stiffness in the rear axle area, resulting in improved straight-line stability and greater poise under high lateral acceleration.
The standard lift-related dampers likewise have a beneficial effect on both
the sporting abilities and driving comfort of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé. They reduce body movement perceptibly when evening out vibrations caused by bumpy road surfaces and dynamic cornering.
Lift-related damping is an active element of the suspension set-up and can be tuned specifically to optimise the balance between sportiness and comfort. Increased damping forces, firmer springs and anti-roll bars have been employed to give the new BMW 4 Series Coupé its distinctive handling characteristics.
A sporty driving experience in a modern, premium setting.
The definitive focus on an intense driving experience underpinning the overall concept of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé also shines through clearly in the interior’s styling and equipment. The cockpit’s driver-centric design and the clear arrangement of all controls help the driver to concentrate on what is happening on the road ahead.
The clear design language of the new screen grouping and smartly designed control panel on the centre console directs attention to the elements of the cockpit most relevant for the business of driving. One of the items on the standard equipment roster for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé is a restyled leather sports steering wheel with thumb rests and electroplated applications. The newly arranged multifunction buttons and their extremely classy design grace all steering wheel variants and make it more practical to operate the standard and optional driver assistance systems.
The BMW Live Cockpit Plus fitted as standard in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé includes an audio system with six speakers and output of 100 watts. Opting for the hi-fi speaker system increases the number of sound sources to ten and the amplifier’s output to 205 watts. And for those looking for the ultimate feast for the ears, there is the Harman Kardon surround sound system included as part of the optional Entertainment package, complete with 16 speakers and a digital seven-channel amplifier delivering 464 watts of audio power.
Display and operating system – BMW Connected and ConnectedDrive.
Both driver and passengers will benefit from the enhanced options for intuitive operation and the innovative digital services brought by the standard inclusion of BMW Operating System 7 in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé. Individually configurable display content and intelligent connectivity underpin remarkably seamless interaction between driver and vehicle. In the main menu on the Control Display, the driver is able to configure up to ten pages, each showing two to four pads (tiles) with live content.
The intuitive multimodal interaction between driver and vehicle is now even better and allows the driver to take their pick of control interface for the situation at hand: Control Display touchscreen, proven iDrive Controller, multifunction buttons on the steering wheel, voice control or optional BMW gesture control.
The standard-fitted BMW Live Cockpit Plus comprises the iDrive operating system with 8.8-inch Control Display and a Touch Controller, a black panel instrument cluster centred around a 5.1-inch colour display, plus a multimedia and navigation system, two USB ports for data transfer and a WiFi interface.
Smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
BMW Live Cockpit Plus also comes with an optimised Smartphone integration feature. In addition to Apple CarPlay, the operating system for the new BMW 4 Series Coupé will also host Android Auto. This opens up the benefits already enjoyed by Apple iPhone owners to Android users as well, making it easier to access a large number of digital services from the car in the same way as on a smartphone. These include Google Assistant, Google Maps, music streaming services like Spotify and Amazon Music, and the WhatsApp messaging service.
