Spy photographers have spotted the new BMW 4 Series Coupe.
The BMW 4 Series Coupe goes on sale next year and to prepare for its market launch, it is being heavily tested by German engineers in cold weather conditions. The car is still in its early stages of testing which explains the heavy camouflage.
For the first time, BMW has split the 3 Series family into two distinct badges. The new 4 Series Coupe will allow BMW to price the vehicle slightly higher to compete directly with offerings from Audi (A5) and Mercedes-Benz (smaller SLS).
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.
