AutoBild plays again with Photoshop and gives us an imaginary rendering of the second generation BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. The German publication uses the proportions and design idea of the current 4er Gran Coupe, paired with rumored future design elements to put together a compelling and attractive package.

In 2020, BMW will launch the second generation 4 Series. Designed under the codename G23, the 4 Series Coupe will join the G20 3 Series which launches just two years before. Just like the new 3 Series, the next 4 Series will be built atop a new, highly flexible matrix known as CLAR — short for cluster architecture — that is set to be the backbone of all future rear-drive BMWs.

The side of the car portrays a more athletic compact coupe with a character line running across and an air breather. The front-end stands out with slimmer and sleeker laser headlights which connect to the outer edge of a redesigned kidney grille. The lower front fascia is dominated by two large air intakes with chrome elements for additional sportiness and luxurious look.

All the recent tech previewed by BMW could make its way into the G23 4 Series, including active lane-keeping assist, automatic braking, self-parking via remote control, automatic overtaking under certain conditions, and semi-autonomous driving both on the highway and in stop-and-go traffic at speeds up to 40 mph.

BMW will continue to use four and six-cylinder engines for the new 4 Series, and we might even see a three-cylinder-powered 4er as well.

    when is the next gen 4 series due? it will probably look sexy and futuristic

  2. Mark Tucker says:

    The problem with the current four series, is clearly the decision to call it a four series was made too late in the development program, as a result the whole line up ended up looking a little confused. This is understandable given how controversial that decision was.
    The six series is successful because it was always intended to be a six series. That clarity of purpose shows.
    This time the four series will also have the opportunity to be its own thing and should be all the better for it.

    These renders look like BMW is turning into Audi. Nicht gut.

  4. Senne says:

    Looks like an Audi. Which means this is, once again, a very bad rendering.
