Style-wise it reprises a design feature from the company’s past with models such as the BMW 328 and BMW 3.0 CSi. A huge kidney grille angles forwards and extends down almost to the lower edge of the front apron. A horizontal mesh structure, similar to what has appeared on other recent BMW M series models, features within the kidney grille.

It’s a large coupe; length has increased by 128 millimetres to 4768mm, width by 27mm to 1852mm and the wheelbase by 41mm to 2851mm compared with the previous generation model.

Inside there’s a driver-focused cockpit, sport seats and an M leather steering wheel. The instrument cluster and control display form a large-surface display grouping

The rear seats are set up to accommodate two passengers in style that echos the front pews.

Engines have enhanced BMW TwinPower turbo technology will be available to Australian buyers. These include two four cylinder engines for the 420i and 430i, delivering 135kW / 300Nm and 190kW / 400Nm respectively. And a straight-six for the M440i xDrive that develops 285kW /500 Nm.
