The 3 Series Coupe and Convertible are dead, long live the 4 Series.

BMW's relentless push to own every number between zero and 10 continues this week, with the official unveiling of the new 4 Series Coupe.

Replacing the familiar two-door models in the 3 Series range, the 4 Series represents a new take on an equally familiar formula.

Styling for the new 4 is largely a mirror of its sedan and wagon counterparts, while mixing a broader and more low-slung look into the recipe.

Familiar styling elements include the same long bonnet, swooping glasshouse and short rear deck that made the two-door 3 Series models so popular.

BMW's new stretched 'kidney' grille design dominates the face of the 4 Series, flanked by the same connected light design found on the 3 Series and now also the new X5 SUV.

The profile of the 4 Series boasts a bolder character line than its sedan sibling, running atop pumped guards that give even the entry models a more intimidating look than the previous 3 Series Coupe could manage.

The 4 Series is 26mm longer overall than its predecessor, while riding on a 50mm longer wheelbase. It's also 43mm wider, while the roofline is now 16mm lower.

In Europe, the new 4 Series will be offered with a familiar selection of powertrains. Petrol models will include the 135kW 420i, the 180kW 428i and the hero 225kW 435i.

A six-speed manual is standard across the range, with an eight-speed sports auto as an option. Two xDrive all-wheel-drive options will also be offered in Europe.

BMW promises a 5.4 second sprint to 100km/h in the 435i - down to 4.9 in all-wheel-drive xDrive form - while fuel consumption for the top model is rated between 7.9 and 8.1 l/100km in six-speed manual form.

Opt for the eight-speed auto, and fuel consumption drops to 7.3-7.4 l/100km.

The 428i is also quite swift, promising a 0-100km/h time of 5.9 seconds, with fuel use listed at 6.7 l/100km in manual form.

On the diesel front, there's the 420d, 190kW/560Nm 430d and the most powerful model in the whole range, the 230kW/630Nm 435d.

The 4 Series also benefits from a lower suspension setup, offering the lowest centre of gravity of any BMW currently on offer.

Trim packages, as with the 3 Series models, will include BMW's new Sport and Luxury Lines, along with the familiar M Sport package.

The 4 Series is expected to debut in Australia later this year.
