The 2018 BMW 4 Series will soon hit dealerships with some mid-cycle tweaks. The highlights off the top are two new exclusive colors, a new front and rear fascia, a new Digital Cockpit and a stiffer suspension.
As far as looks go, the changes aren’t dramatic, but BMW says the idea is to further distinguish the 4 from its little sis the 3. The front air intake now consists of one elongated opening. The front and rear get new LEDs. The front now uses the halo ring style lights fast becoming BMW’s signature look. There are new alloy wheel choices and the two new paint colors Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic and Sunset Orange.
Inside takes the same re-trimming stance. It gets more fancy and shiny with aluminum and chrome details, double stitching, and three new color choices. The tech now includes an optional Multifunctional Instrument Display. So like on the higher grade Beamers, you can customize what you see.
The more exciting, but unseen upgrades, are the stiffer suspension and retuned steering setup.
These visual and hidden improvements complement the new engines from last year. That was when the trims became the 430i and 440i. The 430i carries the base 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo with 248-horsepower. The 440i gets a 3.0-liter 320-horsepower engine.
Pricing for the 2018 4 Series is still to come. The Convertible and Gran Coupe arrive in March. The Coupe will join later this year.
