BMW has officially unveiled the all-new 2014 BMW 4 Series Convertible ahead of its world debut next month at the LA Auto Show. As expected the 4 Series convertible retains the retractable hardtop as the outgoing 3-Series convertible. It will also be powered by the same engine lineup as the coupe.
The new BMW 4 Series Convertible is visibly larger in width, track and wheelbase than the BMW 3 Series Convertible. On the outside the 4 Series Convertible looks almost identical to the coupe, but it does get so-called Air Breathers positioned rearward of the front wheel arches. Together with the Air Curtains, these elements reduce turbulence and aerodynamic drag at the front wheels.
Just as with the exterior, the convertible is nearly identical on the inside. The design of the seats is new and includes integrated seatbelts. The standard seats and the optional sport seats with recessed head restraints can be equipped with neck warmers for the driver and front passenger. When the top is down, the temperature setting is automatically controlled in relation to the outdoor temperature and the speed of the vehicle.
As expected the 4 Series convertible will be offered in 428i and 435i versions. The 2014 BMW 428i Convertible will have a base of $49,675, and the 2014 BMW 435i Convertible will have a starting price of $55,825.
