As well as the body features in the M Sport model designed to optimise the supply of cooling air and aerodynamics, the BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé also come with a kidney grille surround, air intake trim, exterior mirror caps and trapezoidal exhaust tailpipe finishers in Cerium Grey metallic. A rear apron inlay in High-gloss Black provides an additional flourish. Added to which, BMW M cars can be specified with an M Carbon exterior package, which comprises front-wing air intake finishers, exterior mirror caps, a diffuser element in the rear apron and a specially moulded rear spoiler made from this ultra-lightweight high-tech material.
Together with the coordinated design of the instrument panel and door panel trim, the high-set centre console generates an enveloping environment for the front seat occupants. In the BMW M440i xDrive Coupé, BMW M440d xDrive Coupé and M Sport model option, the outer edges of the centre console have knee pads to cater for a sporty driving style.
For the first time, the range will be spearheaded by a BMW M440i xDrive Coupé model, which boasts outstanding performance credentials thanks to its extremely powerful six-cylinder in-line petrol engine.
The new six-cylinder in-line unit comes with weight-optimised pistons and con rods, a twin-scroll turbocharger with indirect charge air cooling, and an exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head with a water-cooled design that serves to aid thermal management. It generates maximum output of 275 kW/374 hp from its 3.0-litre displacement, an increase of 35 kW/48 hp over the most powerful model variant in the preceding generation of the BMW 4 Series Coupé. Maximum torque stands at 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) and can be summoned between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm.
Agility in the new BMW 4 Series Coupé is further enhanced by perfect 50 : 50 weight distribution and a centre of gravity 21 millimetres lower than the Sedan’s
The design principle of a double-joint spring strut front axle and five-link rear axle offers an outstanding basis for combining precisely controllable handling up to the limits of performance with impressive long-distance comfort.
The optional M Sport suspension (standard on the new BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé) includes even stiffer settings for the lift-related damping along with a kinematic and elastokinematic set-up focused particularly clearly on dynamic handling. That means additional body struts, more rigid mounts, firmer anti-roll bars and a higher degree of negative wheel camber.
Variable sport steering is part of the M Sport suspension and Adaptive M suspension set-ups.
The BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé come with 18-inch M light-alloy wheels, as does M Sport model specification, while the M Sport package Pro includes M light-alloy wheels in 19-inch format.
The optional M Sport brakes (standard on the new BMW M440i xDrive Coupé and BMW M440d xDrive Coupé) provide excellent braking performance and intuitive feel, whether negotiating city streets or pushing hard around a circuit on a track day.
The rear backrest has a 40 : 20 : 40 split as standard, allowing one or more sections to be folded down to accommodate large items of luggage that do not fit in the boot. The backrest’s sections can be released and folded flat by pressing a button in the boot. When the rear backrest is upright, the new BMW 4 Series Coupé offers 440 litres of boot space, the primary capacity in the directly viewable and usable area of the boot having grown by around 30 litres.
