The BMW 4 Series is a range of coupe convertible and fastback models manufactured by the German automaker BMW since 2013. It was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2013 in Detroit.
The 4 Series was created when BMW spun off the 3 Series 2-door models (coupé and convertible) into a separate series. In 2014, the “4 Series Gran Coupé” 4-door fastback body style was added to the range.
The F32/F33/F36 series is the first generation of BMW 4 Series. It was launched in mid-2013 as the successor to the E92/E93 coupe/convertible models of the fifth-generation 3 Series range. The F32/F33/F36 is produced alongside – and shares many features with – the F30 3 Series. The body styles of the range are:
- 2-door coupe (F32 model code)
- 2-door convertible (F33 model code)
- 5-door liftback (F36 model code, marketed as “4 Series Gran Coupe”)
As per the F30 3 Series range, the F32/F33/F36 is powered by turbocharged petrol and diesel engines with 3 cylinders (petrol only), 4 cylinders and 6 cylinders.
