With class leading performance, handling and sporty styling, the new model builds on the technology from the latest 3 Series Saloon. Mild hybrid technology features on all diesel engines and the straight six petrol unit of the flagship is the M440i xDrive Coupe. The latest weight saving chassis technology and the already noted M Sport Pro Package, form part of the offering with this exciting newcomer that is set to raise the standard in the premium mid size segment.
Stunning performance and supreme handling capabilities will delight those who desire a sporty drive. The new model can be ordered in M Sport format with its large outer air intakes in the front apron and a striking rear apron with an inlay in Dar Shadow and a diffuser element in High Gloss Black which showcase the two door model’s performance credentials. Other M Sport design features include intake trim elements, side window surrounds and exterior mirror bases in High Glass Black. The M440i xDrive and the M440d xDrive also come with kidney grille surround, air intake trim, exterior mirror caps and trapezoidal exhaust tailpipe finishers in Cerium Grey metallic.

High-quality materials and the driver-focused layout of the cockpit define the premium and performance feel of the interior while the structure of the instrument panel is based around horizontal lines, with its width further emphasised by the contours and electroplated strips extending into the door areas. The outer edges of the high-set centre console have knee pads to cater for a sporty driving style.
