BMW 4 Series LCI Facelift Spied With New Headlights

The fact that BMW is already preparing the upcoming 4 Series LCI facelift almost feels strange. But the moment has come. The 4 Series is now ready for its mid-life cycle redesign since its introduction a few years ago. The 4 Series LCI, both the normal model and the M Performance M440i model, can be seen conducting some testing in public. It showcases some of its new designs in some recent spy images.

Suppose you were hoping BMW would address your concerns about the grille and make changes. Many commentators had hoped BMW would return to a standard grille with the LCI upgrade when it originally debuted. In that case, you’re about to be let down. At least to the end of the current 4 Series generation, the grille will remain after the LCI. Of course, it is; BMW is already at work on the next generation of Neue Klasse car designs. And it isn’t about to change the 4 Series just because a few irate commentators are upset, even if it ought to.

The 4 Series is updated to match the rest of the lineup with the addition of new headlights, though. Although the headlamps’ overall appearance hasn’t changed much, the interior lighting has. Now, you can find two arrow-like LEDs that are sharper homages to the dual halo design of vintage BMWs and go well with more recent vehicles like the X5 and X6 LCI.

Due to the camouflage, it’s difficult to discern precisely how the front air intakes appear to be altered as well. But both models’ exhausts reveal their distinct personalities. Hence, the Brooklyn Grey test mule’s dual round tailpipes indicate that it is a less expensive 4 Series model, such as a 420d or 430i. Yet, the Frozen Portimao Blue car’s trapezoidal tailpipes reveal that it is an M Performance model. Like the M340i did when it was LCI’d, I think it will preserve its M440i nomenclature. But, there is no certainty since BMW has altered names with LCIs in the past.

The 4 Series will mostly resemble the vehicle it will eventually replace. The interior, which will feature BMW’s new iDrive 8 curved touchscreen and small toggle switch shifter, like with the 3 Series, will see the most improvements. Although I wouldn’t say so, it seems that BMW is simply extending the life of the current generation of internal combustion vehicles. As it should, BMW is getting ready for the following generation, the Neue Klasse range and beyond. So let’s get by with a 4 Series that has been only slightly updated while anticipating what comes next.
