    Frankfurt 2019 - BMW Concept 4 Previews 2021 4 Series

    BMW Concept 4, Crazy Grille and All, Sets Stage for Next 4-Series
    By: RICH CEPPOS





    BMW has a long and strong design tradition, but it's also not afraid to push the walls of the styling box it's in—sometimes to a fault. The latest example of the company's styling overzealousness is the just-introduced Concept 4.

    The Concept 4 is a one-off design exercise shown for the first time at the 2019 Frankfurt auto show. It's intended to signal to the world that a new 4-series coupe is on the way and that it will look something like this.

    My take...the overall silhouette, and rear are perfect - that grille tho, while not G6 GXP bad, is pretty bad and will take some getting used to. I get what they're trying to do which is to differentiate from the previous gen since people like to b---h about how BMWs are generic, but I think there are better ways to go about it.

    Looking at the spy pic below of the production version, you can almost see that the smaller grille is a result of camo padding:



    So...expect the grille to be huge, maybe not 7 series huge but huge nonetheless.

    BMW designers looked at Lexus and said "Hold our beer".

    Has some nice lines but also has some really brutal lines - front is awful and those big, protruding "chunks" on the lower door panel have to go.

    Overall it feels like they took a page out of Infiniti's book of over-styling.

    I really liked the G6 and when I heard about the GXP I figured it would be my next car. Then I saw that buck tooth grill and wing that only a 20 year old could love. I couldn't buy it.

    I originally thought that, too. When I was forced to replace my Grand Am GT, I opted for a black GXP coupe without the horrible wing! I love my car!

    G6 was in the stick garage next door.
    When it saw this thing it said "There goes the neighborhood".
