BMW 4 Series Convertible revealed, priced from £35,650

BMW has unveiled the 4 Series Convertible, which will make its public debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November, with sales starting in the UK on March 8.

The 4 Series Convertible replaces the previous 3 Series Convertible, just as the 4 Series Coupe replaced the 3 Series Coupe.

The new car is a bit longer, featuring a similar three-piece electronically folding steel hardtop, which takes 20 seconds to open or close at speeds up to 11mph.

The roof retains a similar concept as the old car’s roof, but is actually completely redesigned with improved sound proofing and better aerodynamics. The new roof reduces wind noise by up to 2 dB in comparison to what the defunct 3 Series Convertible had.

There are also optional neck warmers for the first time.

Boot space is also up by 20 litres standing at 370 litres with the roof up and 220 litres when the roof is stowed.

From launch three engines will be available, carried over from the 4 Series Coupe.

The entry level 420d uses a 181bhp 2.0-litre diesel. Two other engines are petrol units. 428i with a 242bhp 2.0-litre turbo and a 435i with a 302bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six.

Six-speed manual is standard and the eight-sped automatic with steering-wheel-mounted paddles is optional.

The 4 Series Convertible will go on sale in March just in time for the open top driving, with prices starting at £35,650 for the 420d SE – £4,075 more than the 4 Series Coupe with the same engine.

    La belleza de esta Cupé/Cabrio, hizo que me decidiera y que cambiara mi actual BMW 330i Cupé/Cabrio, por esta maravilla en su versión 428i Cupé/Cabrio.

    Saludos.
