2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible Review, Changes, Specs, Price, Release Date – Oh, Great Britain. Only in a country full of shitty roads and bad weather would its citizens systematically lean towards a) sportier suspension setups and b) convertibles. So welcome to a car designed for British tastes. The new BMW 4 Series Convertible.
As standard, it will be available in M Sport specs here, with the optional M Sport “Pro Edition” as the next step. And the 4 Series Convertible introduces a new flagship, at least before the M4 Convertible arrived, in the form of the M440i xDrive.
2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible Engine Specs
We have to talk about the M440i xDrive because it develops 369 horsepower and drives all four wheels via an eight-speed gearbox. As the fastest (current) 4 Convertible, it will go from 0-100 km / h in 4.9 seconds and top out at 155 mph. BMW claims the M440i is capable of delivering performance “that would be respectable on a race track,” with hits like an M Sport differential, 19s, adaptive suspension, and even red M brakes.
There are other engines available if racing around a racetrack in a convertible isn’t really your thing. There’s a 420i, 430i, 420d, 430d, and an M440d twin-turbo (which delivers a whopping 516 lb-ft of torque and 0-62 mph in just 5.1 seconds). The 30d and 40d diesel engines will be available from July 2021.
2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible Exterior
What else, what else … It’s a bit longer and wider than the previous Series 4 convertible, and has a fabric roof 40% lighter than its metal predecessor (ugh), capable of s’ open or close in 18 seconds to 31 mph. Upfront is a perfectly rational and reasonably sized pair of vertical louvers, as well as large air intakes and LED laser lights.
The side profile looks clean and recedes to the rear where a pair of dark “slim” lights extend into the “L” shaped sidewalls. Speaking of form, BMW says it has installed additional reinforcements to help keep the body rigid, as well as an aluminum panel under the front and side skirts for “high torsional rigidity.”
