BMW have released details and prices on the new 4 Series range.
The ‘new’ 4 Series comes with tweaked styling, new interior features and updated chassis.
That tweaked styling sees larger air intakes and LED headlights and rear lights offered as standard. The rear of the car has a more sporty look with broad wheel arches and the redesigned rear lights help towards this.
