Before looking at those new models, BMW has also sent us all the details on the upgrade of the existing 420i and 420d. The biggest change here is the inclusion of Adaptive M Suspension, Head-Up Display, Lane Change Warning and Surround View with Top and Side Views as standard.
While engine tweaks have helped reduce fuel consumption from the turbo-petrol engine in the 420i. BMW telling us the Coupe and Gran Coupe version now uses a combined 5.8L/100km (down from 6.1 and 6.3L/100km respectively), while the Convertible sees 6.2L/100km, down from 6.4.
