Snapper Rocks Blue makes the BMW 4 Series facelift a secret star on the BMW at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The freshly revamped mid-range coupe presents itself in the new paint scheme, along with the M Sport Package and 19 inch light-alloy wheels style 704 M with elements in orbit gray.

In the fresh color, the BMW F32 4 Series LCI looks like a new car at first glance, which of course is also due to the new daytime running lights and the revised headlights.

The round corona rings have been given the indicated hexagon, while additional LED struts emphasize the direct connection to the kidney and thus the width of the vehicle. The taillights have also received a new interior life, now almost full-width, and appear much more modern, especially at night. The aprons of the optional M aerodynamics package have remained the same as the other variants, but have not lost their sporty appeal in recent years.

The sporty appeal of the 2017 BMW 4 Series, of course, also contributes significantly to the driving experience. Although the facelift does not change the mechanics of the 4 Series, the engine range was updated last summer, which is why a further update was not to be expected today.

The BMW 440i uses the B58 high-revving engine, which thanks to its indirect charge air cooling has a much more spontaneous response than the N55 predecessor. The standard spring comes in 5.0 seconds and allows a top speed of 250 km/h. The 440i xDrive Coupe with all-wheel drive would be a tenth of a second faster.

 

The most important change in the interior is directly in the driver’s field of vision: the multifunctional instrument display replaces the analogue round instruments for a modest surcharge of 390 euros and brings the display concept with different displays depending on the driving mode to the latest state of the art. Apart from the digital tacho-replacemen,t we see in the interior the M leather steering wheel, the leather Dakota night blue with accents in Oyster, sport seats and the interior trim aluminum carbon dark with accent strip in pearlescent chrome.
