BMW to rename 3-series coupe, convertible as 4-series

BMW, in a major marketing shift, is renaming the next-generation 3-series coupe and convertible the 4 series to create more exclusivity and command higher prices on some of its sportiest, high-volume models

The 4-series coupe is expected to go on sale in mid-2013, followed by the 4-series convertible in the fall, the company said today.

They will be joined by the X4 crossover that goes into production in Spartanburg, S.C., late next year and hits U.S. showrooms in early 2014. BMW also markets a Z4 roadster

Only one problem with this car, the nomenclature.

Imagine bringing this down to India and badging it the BMW 420d and will Ferrari let BMW have a 430d?

Magnificent piece of design & engineering

After looking at the exterior changes over the anticipated 3 coupe also the beautifully crafted interiors & generous usage of suede i think it is FAIR for 4 series to demand premium than what a normal 3 coupe would've been priced at.

A bit odd don't you think? Considering that BMW have some great vehicles of their own that can be used for such filming!

When this comes here should be the replacement for the 330d cabrio selling in India
