Spy Photos: Camouflaged 2017 BMW 4-Series Coupe Runs Street Tests

Read Time:1 Minute, 21 Second

BMW seems to follow Mercedes-Benz`s policy concerning the body styling of its future generation models. It`s like thinking that “bigger is better”, but how about building models with almost identical design and styling cues?

It is also the case of the recently spied BMW 4-Series Coupe, slotted for an official debut at the beginning of 2017, and which seems to come with rather the same styling as the already unveiled 2017 BMW 3-Series.

For a trained eye, the camouflage indicates new body parts, borrowed from the new 3-Series, like updated headlights with different graphics, updated and restyled front bumper with smaller air intake surrounds, fog lights as well as a lower chin spoiler.

The rear end is also likely to resemble the one from the 2017 3-Series, indicating new panels, overhauled taillights updated rear bumper and diffuser and freshly redesigned exhaust tips.

Under the hood, the rumor mill has it that the model will come with different engines in Europe and the United States. The Euopean market is likely to obtain five diesels, with power ranging between 148 horsepower and 309 horsepower, adding two 2.0-liter turbo engines, with four- and six-cylinder configuration. The four-cylinder would come with around 181 horsepower and 246 horsepower, while the six-cylinder would develop around 322 horsepower. In the United States, the engines could be limited to a handful of turbocharged flat-four with 246 horsepower and a 3.0-liter turbo engine with 322 horsepower.
