The perfect coupé proportions also comes with more intelligent connectivity solutions, as well as enhanced performance and efficiency.”

New elements of the all-new coupe are the Air Breathers, positioned rearwards of the front wheel arches. These are combined with the Air Curtains to reduce drag considerably around the wheel arches, and provide further visual clues as to the aerodynamic refinement of the all-new BMW 4 Series Coupe.
