Chronology
PredecessorBMW 3 Series (E90)
SuccessorBMW 4 Series (G22)

The first generation of the BMW 4 Series consists of the BMW F32 (coupé version), BMW F33 (convertible version) and BMW F36 (five-door fastback version,[1][2][3] marketed as 'Gran Coupé') compact executive cars. The F32/F33/F36 has been produced since 2014 and is often collectively referred to as the F32.

The F32 was introduced as the successor to the E92/E93 coupé/convertible models of the fifth-generation 3 Series range. The F32 is produced alongside - and shares many features with - the F30 3 Series. As with the F30 3 Series range, the F32/F33/F36 is powered by turbocharged petrol and diesel engines with 3 cylinders (petrol only), 4 cylinders, and 6 cylinders.

The high performance F82/F83 M4 models were introduced in early 2014.[4] They are powered by the S55 turbocharged straight-six engine.

Development and launch

Official details of the "Concept 4 Series" were released in December 2012, detailing the intention to replace the E92 3 Series coupé with a new 4 Series line.[5][6] In 2013, the concept vehicle (called the Concept 4 Series Coupé)[7] was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show.[8][9] The concept car was designed by Won Kyu Kang.[10]

Compared with its E92 predecessor, the F32's wheelbase is 50 mm (2.0 in) longer, the overall length is increased by 31 mm (1.2 in) and the width is increased by 44 mm (1.7 in).[11] The front track width is 1,545 mm (60.8 in) and the rear track width is 1,593 mm (62.7 in), increases of 45 mm (1.8 in) and 80 mm (3.1 in) respectively.

Coupé (F32)

The coupé models were unveiled in September 2013 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.[12] Nicolas Huet was the lead designer of the F32 coupe.[13][14]

The launch models consisted of the petrol 428i and 435i, and the diesel 420d.[15] In the remainder of 2013, the following models were added: 420i, 420d, 425d, 430d and 435d.[16][17] In 2014, the 418d model was added.[18] Most models were available with all-wheel drive ("xDrive").

The 4 Series Gran Coupé was unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show,[24] followed by 2014 New York International Auto Show[24] and the 13th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition in 2014.[25] Production of the Gran Coupé began in the Dingolfing plant in July 2014.[26][27]

As per the larger 6 Series Gran Coupé (F06), the F36 has coupé styling with a fastback rear. However, the F36 also includes a C-pillar located behind the rear doors. Compared with the F30 sedan, the F36 has 13 mm (0.5 in) less rear headroom and the same cargo volume. With the rear seats folded down, the F36 has a cargo volume of 1,300 L (45.9 cu ft).[28]

The launch models were the petrol-engined 420i, 428i and 435i, and the diesel 418d and 420d.[29][30] The 435i Gran Coupé is approximately 91 kg (200 lb) heavier than the equivalent F30 335i sedan.[31]

M4 version

M4 Coupé (F82)
M4 Coupé (F82)

Up until 2014, BMW M models used the same model codes as the rest of the model range. However, the F32/F33/F36 generation was one of the first where the M models use separate model codes: F82 for the coupé and F83 for the convertible.[39]

The F82/F83 M4 is powered by the S55 twin-turbocharged straight-6 engine rated at 431 PS (317 kW; 425 hp) and 550 N⋅m (406 lb⋅ft).[40] The gearbox is either a 6-speed manual (with throttle blip on downshifts) or a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (M-DCT).[41]

The M4 also features an electronically controlled limited-slip differential, electric steering,[39] additional bolted joints between the axle subframe and the body sills, aluminium stiffening plate and a five-link rear suspension constructed from aluminium Carbon-fibre is used for the roof, bootlid, strut brace and driveshaft.[39][42][43] Unusually, the suspension subframes are directly connected to the chassis without rubber bushings.[40] An optional head-up display comes with additional M-specific functions such as a gear display, rev counter and Optimum Shift Indicator.[44]

The concept version of the M4 Coupé was unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on 15 August 2013,[45][46] followed production version being unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show on 13 January 2014.[47]

The production version of the M4 convertible was also unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show.[24] Features of the convertible include a three-part folding metal hardtop with noise-absorbing headliner and air curtains. A wind deflector and neck warmers were available as options.

The Alpina B4 (petrol) and Alpina D4 (diesel) models were based on the F32.
