BMW unveiled today the facelifted models of the 4 Series family. As expected, the 2017 BMW 4 Series Facelift focuses on lighting technology and interior changes, in addition to two new options in the color palette.

The two new finishes are exclusively reserved for the BMW 4 Series and provide a particularly sporty touch: The first pictures of the revised BMW 4 Series Coupe (F32 LCI) show the new color Snapper Rocks Blue, with its turquoise blue. And the first pictures of the refreshed convertible show, the also new, Sunset Orange.

If you look at the new lighting design in detail, you will quickly recognize the parallels to the lighting technology of the original 4 series concept. A little more than four years later, the hexagonal daytime running light design, with hinged ridges, transitions into the series production. Bi-LED headlights at the front are used as standard, adaptive full-LED headlights with even better illumination of the street are offered for an extra charge. At the rear, the BMW 4 Series Facelift is offered standard with the full LED technology. The BMW-typical L-shape is reinterpreted as well.

Further modifications to the 4 Series models are related to the the interior and the technology package. A new feature of the range is the multifunctional instrument display, which has been known for many years, but has not been offered in the BMW mid-range models. The complete tacho-unit behind the steering wheel becomes a digital display, which can change its look depending on the driving mode, and can be used to display numerous information.

In the central infotainment display on the center console, the 2017 BMW 4 Series Facelift 2017 utilizes, as expected, the latest iDrive generation with tile optics. New upholstery colors and interior trim, as well as some minor improvements in haptics and looks round off the upgraded interior.

Another visual highlight is the double stitching on the instrument panel, while three new upholstery colors together with three new interior trim strips provide even greater choice when it comes to personalizing the interior’s design.

On the side of drive and chassis technology, the facelifted model is comparatively discreet, but some updates are worth noting. In order to sharpen the positioning of the BMW 4 Series as a particularly sporty medium-class alternative, the new BMW 4 Series Coupe and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe now come with a stiffer suspension set-up delivering even sportier handling without any loss of ride comfort. Both the lateral and longitudinal dynamics have been improved, regardless of the load on board. This applies not only to the standard suspension, but also to the M Sport suspension and the Adaptive suspension. All new BMW 4 Series models now boast even more assured straight-line stability and more communicative steering. High-performance tires are available as a factory-fitted option for all models from the BMW 430d and BMW 430i upwards.

All of the petrol engines and the four-cylinder diesel units fitted in the new BMW 4 Series range stem from the latest BMW EfficientDynamics family of engines and are equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. There are three petrol engines (BMW 420i, BMW 430i and BMW 440i) and three diesel options (BMW 420d, BMW 430d, BMW 435d xDrive) available for all of the new BMW 4 Series models.

The power output of the petrol-engined BMW 4 Series model variants ranges from 135 kW / 184 hp in the BMW 420i up to 240 kW / 326 hp in the BMW 440i (fuel consumption combined: 7.9 – 5.5 l/100 km [35.8 – 51.4 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 185 – 127 g/km). When it comes to the diesel line-up, meanwhile, the power spectrum extends from 140 kW / 190 hp in the BMW 420d up to the 230 kW / 313 hp of the BMW 435d xDrive (fuel consumption combined: 5.9 – 4.0 l/100 km [47.9 – 70.6 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 155 – 106 g/km).

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is available in a further diesel variant – the BMW 418d with an output of 110 kW / 150 hp (fuel consumption combined: 4.5 – 4.1 l/100 km [62.8 – 68.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 118 – 107 g/km).

A total of twelve model variants are available with the option of BMW xDrive, while the BMW 435d xDrive comes with the intelligent all-wheel-drive system as standard – in Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe guise.

  2. Kaisuke971 says:

    Looking sharper than ever !

  3. BrianF says:

    Finally, now the 4 series has improved better than before with more luxury and sportiness.
    Those LED headlight and taillight are gorgeous !
    I love it.

  4. Icebreakerr says:

    can i ask does it have the option to change ambient lighting colour?

  5. Giom says:

    Exactly what they needed. Just a little sharpening up. And just the right amount too…

  6. seancorr says:

    I see they added a new line called Advantage…is that considered the base line form?

  7. Madalin says:

    Now this is a really nice face-lift!

  8. Russell says:

    Looks really nice and better than before. If I was in a market for a car in this segment I’d have a really tough time choosing between this and the new A5 based on design alone.

  9. Dominik Devaja says:

    When do they reveal the new M4 ?

  10. Daniel Johnson says:

    Will the Gran Coupe get a 6sp manual option this time around?

  11. cc says:

    no one has noted that this LCI is happening halfway through a model year… there are already 2017 440’s on ground which means half are going to be old stock and half will be LCI’d… unless they make these a 2018. pretty unusual for BMW

  12. Tumelo Malumane says:

    I was expecting the OLED taillights from either the M4 GTS or the M4 Iconic Lights to make their way to this LCI, but this will do, the upgrades are so flipping amazing.

  13. Tumelo Malumane says:

    Does anybody know what the code-name and release date for this LCI is?

  14. Wendy Lou says:

    Hi there,
    I just ordered the new gran coupe 420i yesterday, dealer says it will get ordered and build in 3 month time.
    Will the headlight and taillight been updated on the one I ordered? when I was playing with the “build a car” system on both us website and my country’s one, the light only changes to the new look when I clicked adaptive led headlight. I’m a bit worried…and the dealer doesn’t seems know much as they haven’t seen the car for real themselves.

    • Horatiu B. says:

      Is it a 2018 model?

      • Wendy Lou says:

        Hi Hotation, Where I can find this info? The dealer says all the new build since March is the facelift version, but I don’t know where to comfirm it, I got few off days to work this out, any hint?
        By the way I’m in Australia, doesn’t have the us online build and order system, everything has to order from dealership.

    • Gavin says:

      Hi Wendy, it does depend which country you are in. I got my facelift model delivered about 6 weeks ago expecting the new front hexagon design as standard. My dealer actually thought the same, (netherlands) but apparently the front hexagon design in some countries only comes when you order the adaptive option….which is what you are seeing on the site. The new rear design does come as standard, and the front rings are now led as standard.

  15. Wendy Lou says:

    Hi there,
    in regards to the previous post I have found out mine will be the LCI version.
    However a new question here, for the headlight, will the standard “LED” cosmetically different from the one with “adaptive LED” ?
    Thanks in advance.
