The 4-series Cabrio is of course ‘just’ another cut-open version of the 4-series Coupé, but with the new roofless variant something special is going on. In contrast to the outgoing model, the new 4-series Cabrio will not have a complex and heavy roof construction with a steel folding roof. BMW simply applies a fabric hood again as BMW last used in this class on the 3-series Convertible that was sold until the mid-2000s, the E46.
You don’t have to count on any major surprises. As far as engines are concerned, you can therefore expect the arrival of various petrol and diesel versions. At the top of the petrol list will of course be the at least 480 hp M4 Convertible, which has a very potent sub-topper in the form of the M340i of 374 hp. Later this year, BMW will be pulling both cloth and roof from the 4-series. Afterwards, the 4-series family will be expanded with a new Gran Coupé and with a fully electric variant: the i4.
