Visually, the convertible is based on the 4 Series Coupe. The range of engines will also be based on the closed version. But the highlight is the convertible top. The hardtop can be retracted in 20 seconds.

D.he sky overcast, the panorama cloudy, the air humid and the mood gray – dangerous times are now dawning for melancholics. But because beautiful prospects are the best remedy for the approaching autumn depression, BMW is now releasing the first photos and facts about the new four-seater convertible, making you want to go next spring.

Because the open four-seater will only go on sale in March. Until then, you can either save on the basic price of 46,300 euros – or simply order the coupe. After all, it is not only 7100 euros cheaper, but also available immediately a few days after the market launch.

The convertible is no longer a surprise for anyone familiar with the coupe: wider, flatter and more sinewy than before, the open-top quad also adopts the familiar design line and therefore looks much more athletic. This car doesn’t just want to stroll, it wants to be driven properly, is the message from the designers.

20 seconds for the top

The retractable hardtop has remained. Where the ones and sixs are covered with fabric, three large bowls made of plastic and glass fold between the head and the sky. That takes a good 20 seconds, works up to 18 km / h even while driving – and of course costs a lot of trunk space.

The luggage compartment has grown by 20 to 370 liters compared to its predecessor. But once the roof is open, 220 liters of storage space must be enough. For four inmates on their way to the weekend, that can be a bit tight.

BMW initially installed three engines behind the aggressive grill. There will be a few more variants later and of course an M version with well over 400 hp. But for now, the 435i, with its 405 hp, is the only six-cylinder that marks the top for fresh air drivers.

A neck warmer is also available

There is also the rear-wheel drive or, if desired, all-wheel drive, the 245 hp four-cylinder in the 428i and the 420d as an entry-level model with low fuel consumption. His two-liter diesel has an output of 184 hp and, in the best case scenario, is satisfied with an average of 4.8 liters.

Global Warming has bad cards there, even if convertible fans would probably have nothing against a rise in temperature.

If the weather doesn’t cooperate and the winter lasts a bit longer, BMW has a nice consolation ready in advance obedience: With the generation change, the convertible top has been redesigned so that it now protects even better against air and noise and you can so now in the closed car actually feels like in a coupe.

And if you can’t wait to enjoy the open air enjoyment, a neck warmer will heat you up for the first time on request.
