There are some tough choices on the horizon for BMW drivers because from the 8th March 2014 there are three new convertible models to choose from.As we wave goodbye to the 3 Series Convertible, we welcome in the brand new BMW 4 Series Convertible. The new models are lower, wider and longer, and promise to pack more punch per mile than you could shake a gear stick at. Plus, with prices staring at just £36,675 OTR for a 420d SE Convertible – a very tempting upgrade indeed.
Why we are excited about the new 4 Series Convertible – The three-piece metal roof!
The roof of the new BMW 4 Series Convertible can be raised or lowered in just 20 seconds, transforming it from a cozy, warm, quiet and snug coupe into an open-topped automobile that will set your pulse racing out on the open road.
When the top is lowered, nothing gets in the way of the smooth, flowing silhouette. Attention to design detail has led the experts that crafted this car to keep radio antennas and rollover bars neatly tucked away behind the rear head restraints.
Finally – we just LOVE the new Air Collar system. This blows warm air onto the back of the neck of front seat occupants for a more comfortable drive on chillier days when you still want to feel the freedom only a convertible can give!
