New BMW 4 Series Coupe Sighting Shows LED Headlights and Interior Clearly

We bring you the latest sighting of the 2014 BMW 4 Series (F32) Coupe. What we're seeing here is a 435i Coupe showing clearly for the first time LED headlights and large parts of its interior front cabin.

The optional LED headlights feature squared off coronal rings (angel eyes) much like the optional LED headlights seen in other recent BMW models. Sadly however, the optional LED headlights will not feature the special design seen on the BMW 4 Series Concept's LED headlights which featured hexagonal lights with the corona rings leading out from the inner headlight tube to form a visual link with the inner headlight and the kidney grille.

As we've already seen in past spy photos, the 4 Series interior remains close to the F30 3 Series. We also get a good look at the functional front fender "air breather" vents. And that is a 3 Series GT that the F32 is parked in front of.

The production F32 4 Series Coupe will be revealed sometime this Summer, with an auto show debut in the Fall. Production of the F32 coupe will begin this July 2013 (for deliveries beginning late August-September).

The F33 4 Series Convertible begins production in November 2013.
The coupe and convertible models will be joined by the 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) and BMW M4 Coupe (F82) in 2014-2015.

The US will get the 428i and 435i coupes, in RWD and xDrive versions. The European model lineup can be seen in this previous post showing VIN model lookup results. In its first model year (2014), the 435i coupe will be powered by the same N55 engine as the current F30 335i sedan (with the same power output) and the 428i is likewise powered by the same N20 engine as the current F30 328i sedan.

Although the first model year 435i won't see a power bump in the form of a successor engine to the N55 motor, we will see it with a power upgrade in 2014-2015 if BMW releases the 4 Series Gran Coupe in 2014 with a more powerful engine (just as they debuted a more powerful 650i N63Tu engine in the 650i Gran Coupe, which is now filtering down to the 650i and upcoming 550i LCI models).

Now I see why it doesn't cost much more than a regular 3 series - that interior is pretty disappointing. The exterior is promising, though.

not too bad but would have loved it more if they stayed closer to the concept. But like most concepts the price to actually go into production is to much. Again, I will reserve judgement until I see the full reveal. I also did not like the F30 at first but now I own one.

I believe cipher is referencing horsepower remaining the same. Not the power "dome"

Looks sweet. Can't wait for the reveal.

Who will come out with aftermarket bumpers to match the concept... that would be a WIN!

What's the point of covering up the interior? It's just the F30 interior....

I think that's the same thing they did in the past...the 3 coupe is basically 2 doors slapped on an 3 sedan.

the fact that it has that bulging god-awful hand grip on drivers side door like in F30 may be a deal breaker.

Hmm, since the LED "angel eyes" from the concept 4 series doesn't appear on this test mule, I wonder if it will be an option on the 4 series or if it will make it on the M4 as standard equip.?
One can hope

It's a pity that these LED headlights differ from those in concept. I think it will look way less aggressive ;/

I was hoping for an m6 style steering wheel and interior. Also an LCD 7series speedometer would've been nice.

No new engine
Same interior
No fancy hexagonal LED headlights
Pretty much the same price as before.
Looks exactly like a 2 door F30 (unlike the 6 which looks different from the 5)

Why again is this called the 4-Series?



Thats really disappointing about the headlights, as that was the coolest thing about the concept car.
