    BMW is close to revealing a redesigned 3-Series but today we have our first spy shots of a prototype for the related 4-Series, specifically the 4-Series Convertible. The redesigned 4-Series is expected to debut late next year as a 2020 model, but in coupe form only initially. The convertible will trail the coupe by about six months to a year, meaning we should see it arrive as a 2021 model. BMW is clearly going for an evolutionary look for its new 4-Series though one major change with the convertible will be a switch to a soft-top roof instead of the current model's retractable hardtop. The...

    BMW M4 Gran Coupe in the works for next 4-Series?

    BMW's 4-Series Gran Coupe is one of the more handsome options in the lineup, though strangely the svelte five-door never received the same M4 treatment that its coupe and convertible siblings benefited from. That won't be the case for the next-generation 4-Series Gran Coupe due early next decade...

    Next 3-Series GT reportedly joining 4-Series family, coming with electric option

    With BMW’s next 5-Series Gran Turismo set to receive 6-Series badging, it makes sense that the smaller 3-Series Gran Turismo will eventually join the 4-Series family. According to Autocar, this is exactly what BMW is planning for the 3-Series GT’s successor. Note, the current 3-Series...

    2018 BMW Alpina B4 S revealed

    Alpina’s B4 has been updated along with the BMW 4-Series on which it is based. In updated the form the car is known as the B4 S, and its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 now beats out an M4-rivaling 434 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque. That’s up from 410 hp and 442 lb-ft...

  • 2018 BMW M4 CS
    454-horsepower BMW M4 CS debuts at 2017 Shanghai auto show

    When BMW in January announced its round of mid-cycle updates for the M4, many, including us, were disappointed to learn there were no real changes apart from some tweaks to the lights and new colors. That’s because BMW was saving the M4’s more substantial updates for a new model...

  • 2018 BMW 4-Series, 4-Series Gran Coupe and 4-Series Convertible

    BMW’s 4-Series family has reached the midway point in its life cycle and has come in for a little nip and tuck to keep it looking fresh. The updates affect the entire range which consists of the 4-Series, 4-Series Convertible, 4-Series Gran Coupe and high-performance M4 and M4 Convertible. The changes, which will be introduced for the 2018 model year, are mostly cosmetic and follow similar updates recently introduced for the 3-Series family. Among the visual tweaks are new LED headlights and foglights and revised bumpers. There are also the new exterior colors Snapper Rocks Blue and...

    Lexus Gets Desperate, Tries To Justify Why Its RC 350 Is Better Than A BMW 435i: Video

    While it’s not uncommon for an automaker to compare its product with a rival’s offering for marketing purposes, a new video from Lexus comparing the 2015 RC 350 with a 2015 BMW 435i is downright bizarre. We would even go as far as to say that it borders on desperation. ALSO SEE...

BMW's answer to a question no one knew to ask, the 2014 4-Series Gran Coupe puts a sleeker, trimmer look on the four-door F30--or adds a couple...

  • 2015 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe spy shots

    There’s a new BMW model in development, and while it looks a bit like the 3-Series that’s been on sale for the past two years, it’s actually an entirely different vehicle. The new BMW is the 4-Series Gran Coupe, which will be landing in showrooms later in the year as a 2015 model. The 4-Series Gran Coupe is essentially a smaller version of the 6-Series Gran Coupe and fits into the burgeoning four-door coupe segment instigated by the original Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. We’ve been spying prototypes for months, and soon the covers will come off as the car is slated for a...

  • 2014 BMW M4 spy shots

    BMW turns 100 in 2016 and no doubt the automaker has plenty in store for the celebrations. One celebratory event may turn out to be the launch of a hardcore version of the upcoming M4 sports car, similar to 2009’s M3 GTS model. The information was reported by Car Sales, citing an anonymous source at BMW M. The new M4, the successor to the outgoing M3 Coupe, is yet to make its debut but we already know it will weigh less than 3,300 pounds, come with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch ‘box, and be powered by a turbocharged straight-six engine delivering upwards of...
