BMW Asia has unveiled the BMW 4 Series Convertible, which heralds a new era in the premium mid-size range of open top BMW cars.

21 Apr 2014 | Local News : Singapore


The all new BMW 4 Series Convertible would be available in the local market in two flavours - the 435i and 428i.

The length of the BMW 4 Series Convertible has increased by 26mm to 4,638mm, while the wheelbase is longer by 50mm to 2,810mm over the BMW 3 Series Convertible
The 3.0-litre engine in the BMW 435i Convertible develops a maximum output of 306bhp and peak torque of 400Nm - available from as low as 1,200rpm and remains on the tap until 5,000rpm.

Despite a sprint to the century mark in 5.5 seconds, it returns 12.9km/L while emitting 180g of CO2 per km.

On the other hand, the four-cylinder lump in the BMW 428i churns out 245bhp and a peak torque of 350Nm - between 1,250 and 4,800rpm.

Century mark acceleration can be completed in 6.4 seconds before continuing to a governed top speed of 250km/h. The eight-speed transmission aids fuel savings - returning a range of 14.9km/L and emitting 157g/km of CO2.

The hardtop features a number of design improvements that reduce noise levels for a much quieter cabin ambience, while the sound absorbing headliner reduces wind noise by up to 2dB, in comparison to its predecessor. A touch of a button folds the three-piece hard top away within 20 seconds, at speeds of up to 18km/h.

The convertible offers wider access to the luggage compartment, and an electro-hydraulic loading assistance system pivots and positions the folded hardtop to ensure maximum utilisation of the 220 litres of cargo space - which can be expanded to 370 litres - with the top up.

The interior presents a stylish fusion of sporty allure, elegance and exclusivity. All of the controls are arranged ergonomically around the driver to provide optimum access to all functions. Besides a sporty M Sport package, the Sport and Luxury trim lines can be selected to personalise the new convertible with special interior and exterior accents.
