Some new live photos from the premiere in Munich show that the new BMW 4 Series G22 can shine even without the M Sport package. The mid-range coupe with the much-discussed kidney grille can be seen in Bluestone Metallic, a bluish-tinged silver that debuted a few years ago with the current 5 Series G30. While most model series offer a choice between different design lines and packages, the range of options for the BMW 4-series G22 is very limited: the 4-series is only available with the standard equipment shown here or with the M Sport package, a Luxury Line or other alternatives are deliberately not offered.
The BMW 4 Series G22 is by no means lacking in sportiness and presence, even without the optional M-Look, which is subject to a surcharge: for the first time in decades, the kidney grille occupies practically the full height of the front. This eye-catching detail is combined with a classic coupe line that ends in an elegant rear section with very flat tail lights. While the side view and rear are definitely an evolution of the first 4 Series Coupe F32, the front design is undoubtedly a revolution — not just for the 4 Series, but for the entire BMW model range. Because even if the tendency towards large kidneys was already evident with the 7th Facelift and X7, it is only now finding its way from the luxury to the middle class and will accordingly be seen more often on the streets.
The 19-inch Y-spoke 783 Bicolour light alloy wheels also make a major contribution to the by no means restrained appearance of the BMW 4 Series G22 in Bluestone Metallic. Upon request, these bikes are also available ex works with designated sports tires without run-flat properties. The sporty claim of the BMW 430i G22 on display can also be underpinned by the choice of a mechanical limited-slip differential, which is included in the price list as an “M Sport differential” at a price of 1,400 euros.
The BMW 430i is powered by the 258 hp 2-liter turbo four-cylinder B48, which can accelerate the coupe from 0 to 100 km / h in 5.8 seconds. The prices for a 430i without the M Sport package start at 50,800 euros, assuming delivery at a valid VAT rate of 19 percent.
