2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe

When seeing the 2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe for the first time, the phrase "sporty elegance" comes to mind.

The vehicle is a smaller version of the BMW Series-6.

Aside from that it also takes some elements from the 3 Series sedan. Production began July 2013 and for you convertible fans, your model should be available soon.2014-BMW-4-Series-Coupe-above-city-lights A

Exterior

The BMW 4-Series Coupe is wider and longer than the Series 3. It sits lower to the ground. The double kidney grille remains, along with the twin circular headlight configuration.

A large air intake in the front apron is coupled with the air breathers located behind the front fenders which are both sharp and functional. The side profile of the 4-Series is similar to that of the Series 6. In fact, they are almost identical.

Around back you will see the signature BMW L-shaped taillights and a newly designed rear spoiler. There are some minor exterior differences based on whether you purchase the Sport, Luxury or M Sport package.

Interior

The interior of the 2014 4-Series Coupe is ergonomically designed for the driver. All of the controls are placed within easy access.

For a coupe this size, the rear seating is also designed well with a bench seat essentially molded into 2 separate seats. Each has their own head restraints and arm rests.

The rear seats can also be manipulated by a ratio of 40:20:40 to allow added cargo space without eliminating the entire seating area. As with the exterior, there are small changes to the inside that go with specific package options.
