In the United States, the Munich-based automaker will offer the BMW 428i and BMW 435i variants, both in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configuration.
The price for the BMW 428i Coupe starts at $46,000 while the Sport Line package is priced at $1700. The BMW 428i Coupe is powered by the same engine as the F30 328i sedan, a 2.0 liter inline-four which makes 240 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. From 0 to 60 mph the 428i Coupe is expected to run in 5.6 seconds.
Here is what MotorTrend had to say about the 4 Series Coupe:
Finalist: BMW 4 Series
We Like: Baby 6 Series style, buttoned-down suspenders, smoother start/stop. We Don’t Like: Filene’s Basement frills at Prada prices, clunky connectivity. “It’s a two-door 3 Series, a variant with a very light refresh,” declared Evans during Saturday morning’s welcome walk-around by way of questioning the 4 Series’ legitimacy as a contender. But by Sunday night, the 428i and 435i had proven themselves to be much more. Theodore proclaimed the 4 “the first BMW I’d consider buying in a long time,” citing its smoother, better-balanced handling and greatly improved interior relative to the 3 Series. Lieberman lauded upgrades to the 3’s “bouncy suspension and paint-shaker start/stop system.” And of the widened, lowered bodywork, design guru Gale said, “If I had to pick the top two or three cars, this car would be one of them. It’s that good.”
