Starting with the looks, both the i4 and 4 Series Gran Coupe (4 GC) both receive tweaks to the fascia including updated grilles and new headlamps with revamped daytime running lights. Higher variants get adaptive LED headlights as standard while at the rear buyers can now option the LED tail-lamps with laser light – similar to the units on the limited-run M4 CSL. Rounding out the changes to the exterior are a revised rear bumper and new design alloy wheels. Buyers also get the option of M Sport packages that adds sportier styling elements and a larger diameter exhaust system for the 4 GC.

Moving to the petrol 4 Series Gran Coupe, the sedan continues to be offered with a choice of four- and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines depending on the market. The big change however is that all units now feature 48V mild-hybrid technology as standard offering an additional boost of 10.7 bhp and 200 Nm under hard acceleration for around 10 seconds.
