BMW has presented the new 4 Series Convertible.

In contrast to its predecessor, the car now has a fabric convertible top.

In addition, the model gets the striking front of the 4 Series Coupé unveiled in June.

The new convertible will hit the road in March 2021.

With the introduction of the new 4 Series Convertible, BMW is returning to a fabric convertible roof for the model after more than thirteen years.

According to the German brand, the hood weighs 40 percent less than the outgoing model's steel roof.

The hood is supplied in black as standard, but can also be supplied in gray at an additional cost.

With an open roof, the luggage space measures 300 liters, which means a gain of 80 liters.

With a closed roof, the rear can carry 385 liters of luggage.

The backrest can be folded down.

The BMW 4 Series Convertible is optionally available with a windshield.

In addition, the car can be equipped with the so-called Air Collar option, a system that blows warm air around the occupants' necks from grilles integrated in the headrests.

Until the arrival of the M4 Cabrio, the 374 hp M440i version was the top model.

Thanks to the use of a mild hybrid system, the driver can temporarily have an additional 11 hp while accelerating, for example.

The acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers takes 4.9 seconds.

An eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with Sprint function, with which the car accelerates faster, costs extra.

In addition, the M4 Convertible is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, ranging in power from 184 hp for the 420i and 258 hp for the 430i to 340 hp for the strongest diesel version, the M440d.

The other two diesel versions produce 190 and 286 hp respectively.

Prices will be announced in the run-up to the market launch in March.

The coach line is drawn as with a ruler.
