The instrument cluster, dashboard, centre console, air vents and switchgear appear identical to those of the 3 Series, with the greatest differentiator between the two likely to be some exclusive trim colours and materials.
Like the current 3 Series Coupe and Convertible, the renamed 4 Series range will continue to offer two seats in the back in place of the three-seat bench of the 3 Series sedan, wagon and Gran Turismo variants.
Our spy photographers also captured the outside the of new BMW 4 Series Coupe, revealing the exterior with less camouflage than ever before.
The images show clearly the 4 Series’ headlights, which like the 3 Series’ are pinched at their inside edges where they meet with the board kidney grille openings.
The roofline flows smoothly from the top of the A-pillars to the lip of the tailgate, which is bordered by a pair of dark-tinted red tail-lights.
While production of the new BMW 4 Series is set to start later this year, the new two-door family will not arrive in Australian showrooms until the first half of 2014.
