In late 2020, or sometime in 2021, BMW will finally launch the brand-new 4-Series two-door model. The G22 droptop is the one we are excited about and the spy shots hyped us up because for the first time, the German manufacturer is giving up on the folding hardtop design. Instead of that, they will use a more traditional soft top!
Even though this vehicle is heavily camouflaged, the change is evident. What else is new about the future car? Keep reading to find out.
Exterior of BMW 4 Series Convertible
The camo couldn’t cover the soft top, but everything else was more or less invisible for us. Once the wagon and sedan expose themselves to the cameras we will start making some guesses and assumptions. It is too early to tell at this point.
For instance, the BMW could differentiate two- and four-door models so that the two-door vehicles stand out even more. But this is the matter of the company’s philosophy and we don’t know much about their future plans regarding this issue.
It is too early to know what the 2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible will be like inside. However, every prototype seen so far had the interior curtained off. The BMW X3 and X4 models are the ones to look for – similar interior is expected.
The upcoming vehicle will be available with both diesel and gasoline engines as well as electric drivetrains. Moreover, the new car will be underpinned by the CLAR chassis. The base trim could come with a 2.0-liter I4, with the 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder offered as an option for the entry-level and standard for upper trims. BMW could decide to keep a 1.5-liter three-cylinder. It is an open question. Automatic transmission is a must, but hopefully, the carmaker will offer a manual for true gearheads.
2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible Price
The official pricing for the 2021 BMW 4-Series Convertible has yet to be announced. The ongoing 4-Series costs just below $530,000 in the States, so expect a slight price increase.
