BMW 4 Series Cabrio Looks Slick in the Wet

With the coupe now out, BMW isn’t trying very hard to cover up the 4 Series Convertible.

Following the reveal of the new 4 Series coupe, BMW is readying its drop-top sibling that’s scheduled to enter production in November. Wearing a smart shade of Melbourne Red, the M Sport Package and very little camo, this BMW 4 Series Convertible test mule has been spied outside the BMW Workshop at the Nurburgring. The new cabrio will keep the 3 Series Convertible’s three-piece folding hardtop and four seat layout, but will be longer, wider and lighter than the outgoing model.

The rest of the car will ape the coupe, from the dynamic exterior design to the engine and transmission options. US buyers will get the choice of a 428i, powered by a 240 hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, and a 435i, which comes with a 300-hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six under the hood. A range of turbo-four gasoline and diesel engines will be offered to the European market when it hits showroom floors at the end of the year.
