Munich. Starting in the summer of 2021, new drive variants, special equipment features and additional exterior and interior design options will enhance driving pleasure, comfort and the individual character of a large number of BMW models. From July 2021, there will be a choice of three new model variants of the new BMW 4 Series Coupe, and a straight six-cylinder diesel engine is now also available for the BMW 4 Series Convertible. Furthermore, additional exterior colours and seat surfaces will be on offer for models of the BMW 3 Series and 4 Series.
Moreover, as from the summer of 2021, new exterior colours will also be available for the BMW 1 Series and the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. In addition, a number of models will feature an upgraded version of the Lane Departure Warning with additional functions. Optional 4-zone automatic climate control will in future also include a nanoparticle filter for the BMW 5 Series, the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo and the BMW M5 model variants. The plug-in hybrid models of the BMW 5 Series Touring can now also be fitted with 19-inch light alloy wheels and – like the electrified versions of the BMW 3 Series, the BMW 5 Series Sedan, the BMW 7 Series and the BMW X5 – will feature new exterior and interior design accents.
BMW 4 Series Coupe: New four-wheel drive models and a BMW M automobile with classic rear-wheel drive.
From July 2021, the BMW 4 Series model range will be complemented by two additional four-wheel drive variants – the new BMW 430i xDrive Coupe (combined fuel consumption: 7.7 – 6.9 l/100 km according to WLTP; combined CO2 emissions: 176 – 157 g/km according to WLTP) and the new BMW 420i xDrive Coupe (combined fuel consumption: 7.5 – 6.6 l/100 km according to WLTP; combined CO2 emissions: 170 – 151 g/km according to WLTP). This means that the two four-cylinder petrol-driven models can now transfer drive torque to the road assisted by intelligent four-wheel drive technology. Power distribution is available on demand in any situation and is combined with rear-wheel orientation of the system, guaranteeing a classic form of driving pleasure. With a maximum power output of 180 kW/245 hp, the BMW 430i xDrive Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. For the BMW 420i xDrive Coupe with 135 kW/184 hp this figure is 7.8 seconds. Both models are equipped as standard with an 8-speed Steptronic transmission.
At the top of the BMW 4 Series Coupe model range the trend will go in the opposite direction for the additional variants. Up till now, intelligent four-wheel drive was standard on these models, but in future the BMW M440i Coupe (combined fuel consumption: 8.1 – 7.4 l/100 km according to WLTP; combined CO2 emissions: 184 – 167 g/km according to WLTP) will be available with classic rear-wheel drive. Under the bonnet of the new version of the BMW M automobile, the 275 kW/374 kW straight six-cylinder petrol power plant guarantees exceptionally puristic driving pleasure. The car takes a mere 4.8 seconds to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h. Furthermore, in the case of the BMW M440i Coupe, an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission and an M Sport differential on the rear axle assist with the transfer of motive power to the road.
