2014 BMW 4-Series Convertible Spy Shots

Follow Viknesh

With BMW having already shown its all-new 2014 4-Series Coupe, engineers have become a little more lax with camouflage gear for the car’s convertible sibling, which is yet to be officially revealed. Here we see several prototypes for the new 2014 BMW 4-Series Convertible, with tops up and down. The new variant is expected to arrive in showrooms around the end of the year.

Based on the F30 BMW 3-Series, the new convertible, known internally as the F33, doesn’t quite look as streamlined as the coupe due to its retractable folding hardtop. Those hoping that the strangely proportioned rear of the outgoing 3-Series Convertible, which the new 4-Series model will replace, are going to be disappointed.

Two versions will be available at launch: a 428i and 435i. Further down the track a high-performance M4 Convertible should be added to the lineup.

For the 428i, 240 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque will be generated from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The 435i, meanwhile, will receive 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque from a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six.

Rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission optionally available.

Pricing will start slightly higher than the $41,125 sticker of the base 4-Series Coupe.

  2. Don't sweat it JC. I'm sure it will look great. Like I've said before, the new 3-Series looks A LOT better in person than it does in the photos.

  3. If I have this straight, BMW is going from offeroing the 1, 3, 5 and 7 Series to offering the 1 Series RWD, the 1 Series FWD, the 2 Series, the 3 Series, the 5 Series and the 7 Series. How long before they start on the 2.75 Series, or the 3.14159 Series?

    Too many model lines, BMW. Remember the KISS principle.
