  • BMW has unveiled the Concept 4 at the 2019 Frankfurt auto show, saying it "offers a look ahead to the expressive face of the 4-series range," which is expected in the U.S. for the 2021 model year.
  • The Concept 4 continues BMW's recent fascination with huge, ungainly grilles that are oversized variations of the company's famous kidney-shaped grilles of the past.
  • The Concept 4's proportions and styling are closely related to the 8-series coupe's, but recent spy photos of the production version of the 4-series indicate that its looks will be less exaggerated than the show car's.

BMW has a long and strong design tradition, but it's also not afraid to push the walls of the styling box it's in—sometimes to a fault. The latest example of the company's styling overzealousness is the just-introduced Concept 4.

BMW Concept 4 goes a little too hard on the kidney grilles

BMW Concept 4 goes a little too hard on the kidney grilles It's certainly something.

You thought those BMW grille memes were jokes, didn't you? Well the joke's on us, it seems. BMW is far from finished embiggening its grilles , and its new 4 - series concept It gives the whole front of the car an unfortunate Chief Wiggum kind of look, all nostrils and goofy grin. It utterly dominates the design.

According to BMW , that front end — Hannibal-style kidney grille and all — is the new face of the 4 Series . Is it too late to take back all the bad things I Call my crazy but the first picture my immediate thought was that MG was coming back to America. The grill is awful on an otherwise attractive yet

The Concept 4 is a one-off design exercise shown for the first time at the 2019 Frankfurt auto show. It's intended to signal to the world that a new 4-series coupe is on the way and that it will look something like this.

It shouts that message out through a huge, mouthy grille, which BMW says indicates what the front end of the upcoming 2021 4-series will look like. If you've seen the latest 7-series sedan and X7 SUV, the Concept 4's front end won't be a complete shock; the grilles of those two production models are among the largest on the market, and they look like they are screaming epithets at the other vehicles on the road.

BMW’s New Concept Is All—and We Mean ALL—Grille

BMW’s New Concept Is All—and We Mean ALL—Grille The Concept 4 previews the next 4 Series, but all we can focus on is that grille.

The BMW Concept 4 hovers close to the road.

A horizontal main line between the wheel arches takes the place of a

BMW has revealed the Concept 4 Series Coupé at the Frankfurt motor show, previewing radically revamped styling for the second-generation version of the The kidney grille is a unique design icon of BMW , and it’s about how you interpret it. We used to feature a regular grille across all models, but

We can't decide whether the Concept 4's grille looks more like a huge waffle iron or a sea lamprey's mouth, but either way, it's intense. However, recent spy photos of a production 4-series coupe undergoing tests on the Nürburgring indicate that the production version's styling will be toned down somewhat from that of the dramatic show car—and that probably includes the grille.

A seen in the spy photos, the production 4-series' proportions seem a bit more upright—though still sleek—and its flanks appear to be less deeply sculptured. The nose, while well camouflaged, looks to have a taller version of the kidney-esque grilles seen on the Z4 and 8-series, but not as large a grille as the Concept 4's.

The 4-series is expected once again to consist of a full range of models, including the coupe, a convertible, and a Gran Coupe four-door hatchback. The 4s will be built on the same architecture that underpins the 3-series and will be powered by a similar powertain lineup. That means they will offer a choice of a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four or a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6—both hitched to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission—and optional all-wheel drive. Also as before, expect an M4 hot rod to top the lineup.

The one feature we hope we don't get? A 4-series that has a front end with quite as much, um, presence as the Concept 4's.
