Spy photos: BMW M435i F32 in shades of Estoril Blue
There are only a couple of months left until its launch and til then the new BMW 4 series F32 goes through the final test stage. The FEP models – short for Final Evaluation Program – are more often seen on the streets of Germany. Today we have the chance to analyze the M435i with M Sport pack, painted in Estoril Blue shades.
The Bavarian car constructor wants to add coupe and cabrio in the 3 series, thus it will launch a new family, BMW 4 series, which will have expensive models. The new family will include a Gran Coupe.
Audi also has a similar strategy for A4 and A5 models. In this case the price difference between sedan (A4) and coupe (A5) is approximately 6000 Euros in Europe and 4.500 Dollars in USA.
The idea of creating an M Performance model is part of the same strategy, to replace the top 435i or 335i model, as it was named among the E92 generation. The drive train of BMW 435i F32 is identical to the one of the current BMW 335i: the six cylinder turbo-compressor engine, which develops 306 HP. The engine can be connected to manual transmission or the eight steps automatic one.
Besides the classic version with rear drive, there will also be an all wheel drive for BMW 435i xDrive, which will attract clients from regions with a lot of snow, both from Europe and North America.
We expect to see the new BMW 4 series Coupe at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
