At the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, BMWBLOG interviewed Bernhard Ederer, BMW Spokesperson for the 3 and 4 Series in Germany. During the short but insightful interview (watch it here), Mr. Ederer answered a question that many of us have been thinking about since the unveil of the Concept 4 Series Coupe: what will be the pricing when it hits the market?

Without offering an exact price point, Mr. Ederer says that being in a competitive market the company plans to have the 4 Series priced at the same pricing levels as the outgoing E92 3 Series Coupe.

So let’s look at the U.S. market. The 328i Coupe starts at $38,800, while the xDrive version sells for $40,400. The next model in the lineup, 335i takes out of your pocket exactly $45,100, while the supped-up 335is has a premium price of $52,100. There is also an xDrive 335i Coupe which is priced just slightly above the RWD version: $46,800.

We are the first one to admit that we were wrong in our initial estimations. We believed that BMW will significantly increase the base price of the 4 Series, similar to Audi’s A4 and A5 models. With an attractive price tag and an even more amazing design, the 4 Series Coupe will be the new face of BMW and most likely the highest sold 3/4 Series car ever.

Stay tuned for more info and videos on the BMW 4 Series!

    Thanks for the great insight and information from Bernhard. This is welcoming news for customers interested in buying a 4 Series Coupe. Great design, driving dynamics, and a competitive price – BMW should do very well with 4 Series sales globally.

    e92 was already more expensive than e90 so making f32 more expenisve is just stupid. that’s why I didn’t expect f32 to be more expensive

    I need some practical advise. With the swell looking 4 Series Coupe, it is possible to get a set of golf clubs, trundle and small euro wife in that car? Don

    I don’t know why people thought the 4-Series was going to carry a hefty premium. If you can look past all the marketing BS, the 4-Series is just a 3-Series coupe renamed and it’s nothing like the A5 is to the A4. Again, I don’t remember seeing a Audi A4 Coupe (there was a cabriolet, but not a coupe) so the A5 premium over the A4 makes sense, it’s almost a new model Audi is putting out there.

    Any premium the 4-Series has over the 3-Series will be done through options and packages, but at the end, it’s going to be the same as the F30 like the E92 was to the E90.

    The concept definitely didn’t help with all the rumors though. The concept alone would make it look like a totally different car but if you saw the camo-shots of the 4-Series, you would see how similar it was to the F30 and how different it looks from the concept.

    Ugliest car. You cant compare it with the Audi A5 coupe and Merc C Class Coupe.
