The upcoming BMW 4 Series convertible is most likely to sport a folding hard-top and will replace the 3 Series convertible, as the 3 Series brand would be used on the high volume body styles. A 2+2 seat layout with an elongated trunk and an optional bike rack are seen on the leak.

BMW 4 Series Convertible and Coupe

The powertrain options for the 4 Series convertible are most likely to be carried over from the coupe version and the transmission choices are also believed to include a choice of a six-speed manual and an eight-speed auto gearbox.

The 4 Series convertible will be offered in three petrol and diesel options. These include a 420d variant which will house a 181 bhp 4-cylinder turbo diesel, a 428i with a 242bhp 4-cylinder engine, and a 435i with a 302 bhp 3.0L 6-cylinder engine.
