 The all-new 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupe gets a boost in horsepower, torque, and performance, plus major upgrades in advanced driver assistance systems- AutomobileMag

The 2021 BMW 4 Series is widely available as a coupe, convertible, and gran coupe. The latter is going to hit the stores in late 2021. BMW has completely redesigned the 2021 4 Series and the most obvious change is the massive kidney grille. Even the exterior dimensions have been increased slightly. The infotainment system can be upgraded to a 10.25-inch touchscreen with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. 

The 2021 BMW 4 Series can be leased at $479 per month for 36 months. At the time of signing, a down payment of $3,999 should be paid to the dealer. You can also finance it at 0.9% APR. The 4 Series will have an MPD (miles per dollar) ratio of 3.52.
