The 2019 BMW 4 Series Convertible has been snapped again, this time getting out and about without a car carrier obscuring its new soft top.
That’s right, there’s no complex folding hard-top here. BMW has taken the same approach with the Z4, changing tack from its predecessor and re-embracing the soft-top life, while the 8 Series cabriolet is expected to wear a fabric hat as well.
BMW isn’t alone in running a soft-top on its mid-sized convertible: both the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class take the same approach.
The reasons are easy to understand. With multi-layer constructions and clever material choices, a modern soft-top offers similar noise suppression qualities to a folding metal roof, while saving weight, space and costs.
Expect to see the usual array of four- and six-cylinder engines under the bonnet, along with the ‘most powerful four-cylinder ever offered in a series-production BMW. It’s already been confirmed for the 3 Series, making it a surefire starter in the 4er as well.
