In their latest issue, German magazine Auto Motor Und Sport illustrates the future BMW 4 Series Convertible. The computer generated image attempts to describe the potential design of the upcoming 4 Series family.
Similar to the 6 Series offerings, the 4 Series models will fit between the 3 and 5 Series. By offering a higher positioned convertible, BMW will compete on the market with Audi and Mercedes and their latest offerings.
The new 4 Series will also allow BMW to price the vehicle slightly higher, at a premium price. The overall dynamic design would appeal to a younger demographic as well and will be a viable alternative to the high-end 6 Series Convertible.
The 3 Series family will retain the sedan and sports wagon offerings. A new 3 Series Gran Turismo is rumored to join the other models as well.
The rendering above takes design cues from the new 5 and 6 Series, with headlights having a more squared-shape and larger eyebrows. The front grille with the 3D look is also featured on some of the newest BMWs. The bumper sports large air intakes with LED daytime running lights.
Flowing creases are integrated into the hood giving the car a road-focused look.
The new 3 Series Sedan will make its debut in the upcoming weeks, while the 4 Series family will come to market in late 2012.
