May 29, 2017 – Bassoul-Heneine Sal, BMW Group’s oldest importer in the world, welcomed the eagerly anticipated all new BMW 4 Series to its showroom. Endowed with an aesthetic appeal and dynamic flair, the car has stood out with its supremely assured and stylish air ever since its launch.
Since its introduction to the Lebanese market in 2013, 577 units have been sold, with a total of nearly 400,000 sales worldwide (up to the end of 2016) which is a testimony to the car’s tremendous allure, whose story began in 2013 with the arrival of the BMW 4 Series Coupe. The following year, it was joined by the Convertible and Gran Coupe to complete the model family.
Restyled LED headlights take the place of the outgoing cars’ xenon units and all models in the range are equipped with LED front fog lamps as standard. The LED rear lights fitted on the BMW 4 Series for the first time give extra impact to the car’s powerful looks. Modified air intakes, line-specific applications and the new rear apron add further striking touches.
Moving inside, the new electroplated detailing, chrome applications and centre console in high-gloss black reinforce the exclusive, high-quality feel. Another visual highlight is the double stitching on the instrument panel, while three new upholstery colours together with three new interior trim strips provide even greater choice when it comes to personalizing the interior’s design.
The two new exterior paint finishes Snapper Rocks Blue and Sunset Orange are available exclusively for the new BMW 4 Series models, and there is also one new model-specific wheel design each for the Advantage, Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport equipment lines. An abundance of additional equipment options offers ample scope for tailoring the car to individual tastes.
The new BMW 4 Series Coupe and Gran Coupe now come with a stiffer suspension set-up delivering even sportier handling without any loss of ride comfort. Both the lateral and longitudinal dynamics have been improved, regardless of the load on board. This applies not only to the standard suspension, but also to the M Sport suspension and the Adaptive suspension. The cars now boast even more assured straight-line stability and more communicative steering.
All of the petrol engines units fitted in the new BMW 4 Series range stem from the latest BMW EfficientDynamics family of engines and are equipped with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. There are three petrol engines (BMW 420i, BMW 430i and BMW 440i), with the power output ranging from 184 hp in the BMW 420i up to 326 hp in the BMW 440i, available with the optional BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system.
The optional Navigation system Professional for the new BMW 4 Series now features an interface with large tile-style control pads that is even easier to use. The car can be optionally fitted with the Multifunctional Instrument Display, giving the driver the choice of different visualization options for all displays depending on the driving experience mode selected.
