First official look at the new BMW 4 Series Coupe 2014-New diesel engine 420d

Three engines will be available from launch, with three more to follow just a month or so later. Initially buyers will have a choice of 240hp 428i four-cylinder petrol, an 187hp 420d diesel or a 310hp 435i six-cylinder petrol. 

BMW's figures show the 428i reaches 62mph in 5.9 seconds while delivering fuel economy of 42.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 154g/km.

Prices will start from £32,595. The 420d undercuts the petrol model with a price tag of £31,575. BMW claims a 0-62mph time of 7.5 seconds, combined economy of 60.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 124g/km. 

Meanwhile, the 435i reaches 62mph in 5.4 seconds, achieves 35.8mpg on the combined cycle, emits 185g/km of CO2 and will be priced from £40,795. All three versions come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but an eight-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddles for manual shifting will be available within a month of launch. Economy and emissions improve when the automatic gearbox is fitted - the 420d automatic emits just 121g/km. 

Three more engine variants go into production in November.

A 187hp 420i petrol model will become the entry-level petrol option, while two six-cylinder diesels will be introduced - the 261hp 430d and the 317hp 435d.

Both come with the eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard, while the 435d is only available with BMW's xDrive four-wheel drive system. Performance and economy figures for these models are yet to be confirmed.
