BMW 4-Series 2014
We look at BMW’s mid-level Coupe and Convertible BMW 4-Series 2014
There is no doubt that BMW is the target for other car manufacturers as they continue to develop vehicles that that is standard for engineering. Though we may not like the majority of the drivers and their habits behind the wheel we can’t doubt the fact that we to would be driving the vehicle. The BMW 3-Series has been a massive sales success for the company and with its updated looks and more efficient powertrain we look to see the vehicle continue on as a solid staple for the company. But it seems BMW wants to diversify their vehicles and add another series the BMW lineup. The company wants to debut a BMW 4-Series 2014 that will share some of the same characteristics as the 6-Series as to the 5-series. The BMW 4-Series will share many components of the 3-Series but will be its sportier sibling that is offered in the two-door coupe or convertible variation. So it looks like the 3-Series lineup will just be sedans which instantly made me think of the iconic M3. The BMW M3 will just be a sedan? Possibly as the M4 would be the new performance version of the coupe and convertible.
The BMW 4-Series got caught getting tested
We have seen pictures of the wrapped up BMW 4-Series 2014 in its psychedelic acid-trip livery driving around the streets of Germany. The vehicle appeared to share similar styling cues as the interior as the 6-series. Hopefully the 4-Series won’t share the same goofy front fascia that is a big turnoff of the 6-series for a lot of potential customers. I personally think the redesign of the BMW 3-Series looks far better than E90 generation so I hope that they give the 2014 BMW 4-Series a better defined front fascia that looks less bulbous. I personally, and I think others agree that the previous designs throughout the BMW lineup have affected the company in sales due to designs deemed too contemporary for most and just plain ugly for me.
We will more likely see the powertrain of the BMW 4-Series 2014 share that of the 3-series. This will include the 2.0 L and 3.0 L that we currently see today helping the vehicles to get around 33 miles per gallon on highway. As for the M4, I would expect to see a Turbo V6 that utilizes the company’s twin scroll Turbo technology in direct injection producing somewhere around 400 horsepower. And as usual the Europeans will probably get a diesel version that gets 100mpg and delivers 400lb-ft or torque and we won’t be able to touch it. Look for the price to start in the high 30s or low 40s and quickly skyrocket to the 60’s with the 2014 BMW M4.
