Redesigned BMW 4 Series features a massive and controversial front grille
This rendering shows the new 4 Series with a more subdued front end
The rendering above shows the new BMW 4 Series with essentially the same grille as the 3 Series as opposed to the larger design of the redesigned model. To say that grille was divisive would be a massive understatement.
Some love it, others hate it, and few are in between. Of course, in the short term that grille isn’t going anywhere although BMW will likely wait to see how the 4 Series does commercially before applying it to other models.
The 2021 BMW 4 Series was unveiled earlier this week featuring a range of improvements. The interior has been redesigned and there’s more tech to go around. Available in BMW 430i and M440i versions, the new 4 Series puts either 255 horsepower or 382 horsepower to the pavement. The M440i will feature a 48V mild-hybrid system. There’s also a BMW M4 model coming, of course.
The new 4 Series may not have been unanimously received, it certainly made a statement. If that translates into sales, the new grille will be here to stay. If it doesn’t, then expect a 4 Series like this rendering sometime in 2022 or 2023.
