Spy photographers spotted the new BMW 4 Series Coupe. Due out in 2013, the 4 Series Coupe is built under the F32 codename and for the first time will carry the 4 Series moniker.
The 3 and 4 Series will be marketed differently. The new 4 Series Coupe will allow BMW to price the vehicle slightly higher, at a premium price and to compete directly with offerings from Audi (A5) and Mercedes-Benz (smaller SLS).
Even though the test mule was covered with now widely known psychedelic camouflage, the spy video shows an overall dynamic design with design cues derived from the recently unveiled F30 3 Series. The sleek coupe will become a viable alternative to the higher-end 6 Series Coupe, with character lines running across sides that will enhance not only its sportiness, but also a more luxurious and premium look.
Just as the new 3 Series, the 4 Series Coupe will be offered in three lines: Sports, Modern and Luxury. Each will differ from each other by offering distinct equipment options.
To cater to different type of drivers, the BMW 4 Series Coupe will come equipped with adaptive suspension allowing to adjust the settings by pressing a button.
In the engine department, the new 3 and 4 Series models will make use of both four and six-cylinder turbocharged engines. The highest-end offering will be the 335i.
BMW 4 Series Coupe will debut in Spring 2013.[Source: AMS via BimmerToday ]
