BMW's redesigned 4-Series convertible receives more power under the hood and a smarter suite of safety and driver-assist technology, the automaker said in a statement.
The new 4-Series convertible will begin its global launch in March.
Since BMW introduced the first 3-Series convertible in the 1980s, the four-passenger convertibles have become popular among young, upper-middle class drivers, said Sam Fiorani, vice president with AutoForecast Solutions.
"As more and more of these buyers have shifted to crossovers, the choices for those who like to put the top down have been slowly dwindling," Fiorani said. "This generation of the 4-Series convertible could be among the last of the breed, closing the roof on upscale wind-in-your-hair four-passenger cars."
