BMW 4 Series convertible unveiled

The new BMW 4 Series convertible has been officially revealed

The new BMW 4 Series Convertible has been revealed ahead of its public debut at the LA Motor Show in November. This new model is based on the BMW 4 Series but gets a new folding hard-top roof to turn it into a convertible.

BMW 4 Series Convertible prices will start from £35,650, which will buy you the 420d SE Convertible with a 2.0-litre diesel engine – that’s £4,075 more than the coupe version. The BMW 4 Series convertible release date has also been announced as 8 March 2014.

This new model gets a three-piece folding steel hard-top, which takes 20 seconds to fold into the boot, and this can be done at up to 11mph. You get neck warmers for both front seats as an optional extra, which uses hot air to keep occupants warm, while the protection from buffeting is likely to be improved, too.

The boot in the BMW 4 Series Convertible is 370 litres with the roof up, falling to 220 litres with it down. However all models get a system that can change the folded roof in the boot to maximise space.

Engines in the BMW 4 Series Convertible will be the same as the coupe version, with three petrols and two diesels. The entry-level 420d model will get the same 2.0-litre diesel engine with 184bhp as the coupe, which gets over 60mpg. In the future there could even be a performance-oriented BMW M4 Convertible.

There will be plenty of equipment on the new BMW 4 Series convertible, just like on the coupe. All models get xenon lights (with full LED lights as an option), heated front seats and full parking sensors.

The BMW 4 Series Convertible interior features a leather steering wheel with multimedia controls and 6.5-inch display to make controlling the car's features as easy as possible. The front seats have automatic seatbelt feeders, which present the driver and passenger with the seatbelt when they sit down.
