New BMW 4 Series expected to go on sale for MY2017.

The sixth generation BMW 3 Series received its mid-life facelift last year. Now, BMW is working on the mid-cycle update of the BMW 4 Series range. The 2017 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe and 2017 BMW 4 Series Coupe were spied testing recently. A rendering from IAB's automotive illustrator Shoeb Kalania shows how the BMW 4 Series facelift may look like.

Like the BMW 3 Series, the BMW 4 Series will receive a subtle mid-life facelift focussed around the bumpers and grille.

So far, the exterior changes on the facelifted BMW 4 Series are understood to be limited to restyled front and rear bumpers and tweaked headlights and taillights. Interior changes may deal with new trim and upholstery and an updated infotainment system.

Along with the equipment updates, BMW may as well improve the driving dynamics with changes in elements such as the suspension and steering. The engine and transmission choices will more or less remain the same. BMW already offers a wide variety of petrol and diesel engines in the 4 Series, and with the facelifted model, displacements should range from 1.5- to 3.0-litre and outputs ranging from 100 kW (136 PS) to 240 kW (326 PS).

The transmission choices should continue being 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic. Base models will feature a rear-wheel drive, while remaining models will have the option of the xDrive permanent all-wheel drive system.
