New BMW 4-Series convertible or cabrio, whichever you call it. BMW recently revealed the photos of this new 4-Series! 4-Series cabrio offer hardtop like the previous model, the interior is the same with 3-Series, you have all safety systems and connected drive features. Here are the same of the safety and other features of 4-Series: the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display, the Driving Assistant, which warns the driver of a potential collision with a pedestrian, the intelligent, glare-free LED High Beam Assistant, Active Protection with Attentiveness Assistant and the latest development stage of the Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function.
Anyway, would I buy a BMW 4-Series cabrio? Yes, I would because the competitors are outdated. The Audi A5 is end of its product life cycle, so don’t expect anything exciting from A5. Mercedes E-Cabrio was boring since the beginning and you have to be 60+ to enjoy it. I really don’t know why. The other alternatives? No one is bothered with them.
New 4-Series cabrio will be also offer four-wheel drive system xDrive. The engines are 428i, 2-lt petrol 245 HP and 350 Nm of torque. 435i with 3-lt petrol engine with 300 HP and 400 Nm of torque. Keep in mind BMW M3 in 2000 had 326 HP! And your favourite 420d is powered by a 2-lt diesel engine with 184 HP and 380 Nm. Welcome to new world of cabrio cars, diesel!
I am not against diesel but I am missing the good old days, when the petrol price was just $20 and petrol engines were cheap too run. Diesel is efficient and fast but still it was nice feeling to have a petrol engine.
