BMW 4 Series Convertible facelift 2

First revealed back in 2013, the BMW 4 Series Convertible (F33) is set to receive a mid-cycle update, according to these spyshots. It appears the changes will be limited to the front and rear fascias, based on the swirly camouflage covering the prototype seen here.

As a result, it’s safe to say that the changes on the 4 Series Convertible will include a revised front bumper with larger lower intakes and fog lamp enclosures. Also expect new headlamps that should be identical to those of the latest 3 Series, right down to the graphics within.

As for the rear, the changes appear to be subtle with a lightly tweaked bumper and new graphics for the lighting unit, judging by the camo covering it. The body panels appear to be carried over unchanged from the current model, although BMW will likely introduce more paint schemes and wheel designs to accompany it.

No shots of the interior, but based on previous BMW facelifts, expect the latest version of the company’s iDrive infotainment system to find its way inside, along with new upholstery and trim options.

Powertrain offerings will likely remain as before, with a 3.0 litre BMW TwinPower Turbo engine (326 hp and 450 Nm), found on the 440i Coupe and 340i. Other familiar engines include the 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo (252 hp and 350 Nm) fitted to the 430i Coupe and 330i.

If the F30 3 Series LCI is any indication, BMW could also offer a three-cylinder engine for the 4 Series Convertible. There should be some minor updates to the existing engine line-up, including several oil burners, as well
