The configurator for the controversial new 4 Series is now live.
A few months have passed since the 2021 BMW 4 Series debuted with a controversial new look. Now, as the launch gets closer, BMW has launched an online configurator allowing us to see all the options available for the new 4 Series.
Pricing starts at $45,600 for the entry-level 430i, $47,600 for the 430i xDrive, and $58,500 for the M440i xDrive, but the cost soon mounts up when you start adding optional extras. The 430i models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the M440i utilizes a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder rated at 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque.
Adding the optional Shadowline trim, which adds black mirror caps and trim, will cost you an extra $300. As standard, the M440i is finished in a non-metallic white, but six metallic colors are available ranging from $550 to $1,950. The most expensive colors are Dravit Grey Metallic and Tanzanite Blue II Metallic, which both cost $1,950. As for the wheels, the M440i rides on 18-inch double-spoke wheels, which can be upgraded to a set of 19-inch wheels for an extra $600. An all-black interior is standard, but if that's too plain for you there are numerous other color options with contrast stitching, each costing an extra $1,450.
Available packages for the new 4 Series include a $2,500 Premium package adding heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, Live Cockpit Pro, ambient lighting, and a head-up display, or the more pricey Executive package. Costing $3,700, the Executive package adds gesture control support, and adaptive LED headlights with laserlight technology in addition to the features included in the Premium package.
Additional packages include a $1,700-Driving Assistance Professional Package, a $700-Parking Assistance Package, and a Cooling and High Performance Tire Package for $1,500. You can also add individual convenience, performance, and safety options such as a remote engine start for $300, a $250-power tailgate, an $875-Harman Kardon surround sound system, and adaptive M suspension for $700. In total, our build came to $71,625, which excludes the $995 destination charge.
