2018 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe Interior. Moving inside the new BMW 4-Series, an array of upgraded details add to the cabin’s exclusive, high-quality feel. The surrounds for the air outlets and the control panels in the doors now include electroplated inserts, for instance. The air conditioning and audio controls in the BMW 4-Series models are now bordered by chrome applications. The centre console makes an even more elegant impression thanks to its high-gloss black cover panel, while double stitching on the instrument panel accentuates the interior’s driver-focused geometry.
There are now more options to choose from for the interior styling. Indeed, BMW has added Midnight Blue Dakota leather, Cognac Dakota leather and Ivory White Dakota leather to the range, which means a total of three new, very elegant upholstery colours complete with coordinated contrast stitching and piping can now be ordered. New choices for the interior trim strips, meanwhile, include Carbon Aluminium, Light Fineline and High-gloss Black with Pearl Chrome accent strip.
In addition to Advantage specification, the BMW 4-Series can be ordered in Sport Line, Luxury Line and M Sport variants. Customers also have a far greater number of possibilities open to them when configuring their car to their personal tastes, as more options can now be combined freely with one another than before.

There is one new wheel design each for the Advantage, Luxury Line, Sport Line and M Sport variants, and these new light-alloy wheels are reserved for the BMW 4-Series models only.
Exclusive new exterior paint finishes have also been added to the selection. Snapper Rocks Blue is a new shade of turquoise that projects an aura of youthful vigour and intense sportiness. And also new is Sunset Orange-a bold, orangey-red colour. The dramatic interplay between hues of orange and red instils the BMW 4-Series with an extremely sophisticated and sporty air. Styling cues borrowed from the spectacular BMW Concept 4-Series Coupe from 2012 are clearly visible in the design of the new BMW 4-Series, with the new models including elements such as hexagonally shaped full-LED headlights, a large air intake with eye-catching bars and full-LED rear lights.
The restyled nose of the BMW 4-Series expresses the model range’s dynamic overall personality to great effect. Crisp contours alternate with expansive surfaces to create a broad, sharply-contoured front end of three-dimensional muscularity that hugs the road in sporting fashion. The defining feature at the front of the new BMW 4-Series is an unbroken central air intake whose aperture increases in size towards the outer edges, lending the entire nose section a more imposing presence and a greater sense of width.
