A new episode in our photo comparison series brings us the all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe and the outgoing E92 3 Series Coupe.

Despite growing in size, the 4 Series Coupe is slightly lighter than the E92, between 44 pounds (20kg) and 99 pounds (45kg). Size wise, the F32 4 Series measures 182.6 in / 4,638 mm in length, 1 inch longer than E92 3 Series. The 4 Series is also 1.7 inches wider, 71.9 in / 1,825 mm, while it’s 53.6 in / 1,362 mm tall, 0.6 inches lower than E92.

As expected since the F30 by default has a larger wheelbase, the 4 Series Coupe is 2 inches longer than the E92, or 110.6 in / 2,810 mm.

Judging by the photos below, we can see the imposing stance that the 4 Series Coupe brings to the table, along with a wider bodystyle and muscular and dynamic lines.

The design lines are also sharper on the 4 Series, with the hood now featuring more aggressive design cues, a larger kidney grille and a sportier front apron. The rear-end keeps the L-shaped taillights which are now inverted when compared to the E92. The boot lid is also sculpted more aggressively into the trunk.

From the side, the typical BMW 3 Series Coupe proportions are retained: short overhangs, set-back passenger compartment and flowing roofline. All of those BMW DNA elements give the 4 Series Coupe a svelte silhouette and a perfect balance.

Inside, the new 4 Series takes the sportiness and luxury of 3 Series Coupe interior to a new level. New materials, trims and gadgetry become a new selling point for BMW, and if the ride is just as good if not better, the first 4 Series will follow the steps of its predecessor and most likely exceed it in sales.
