After some three years on the market, the BMW 4 Series is getting its first mid-cycle update. Much like most recent BMW facelifts, the changes are limited to certain exterior updates, but with more upgrades happening under the hood. Recent spy photos show the front and rear bumpers been slightly redesigned, along with tweaks to the headlights and taillights. And that’s exactly what the rendering embedded here is based on.
Inside, we expect to see an updated infotainment system with a redesigned user interface, along with upgrades in the tech department. New upholstery and trim options are also on the table. A few upgrades to the exterior color pallet are also expected.
There should also be some upgrades to powertrain offerings and there’s a possibility a new three-cylinder engine is added to the range, giving the 4 Series a new entry-level model. Arguably the most important upgrade will be the new, twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter, inline-six engine. The B58 powerplant will crank out 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque and will be offered in the 440i model. The new denomination will replace the 435i.
A new 430i model will replace the previous 428i and will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four with a 10-horsepower and three-pound-feet boost for a new output of 250 horses and 258 pound-feet.
BMW is expected to unveil the update to the 4 Series in the upcoming months.
