The latest BMW 4 Series belongs to the second generation of the series, featuring compact, executive models, such as the G22 (Coupe), G23 (Convertible), and G26 (Salon/Gran Coupe). The BMW M440i tops the G22 range and features a turbocharged gas engine. The 4 Series largely distinguishes itself from the 3 Series by spotting a large kidney grille inspired by the BMW 328 from the 1930s. It has a 3D pattern meant to give it a more pronounced look. It also features a pronounced duck-tail spoiler and open headlamps that are embedded into the car’s body and boast 3D lighting elements, and thin aluminum wing mirrors.

The 4 Series was first unveiled in concept at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Most features of the BMW Concept 4 were carried over to the production model. The M440i model has some unique features across the series including two slim LED headlamps and two large air intakes that flank the large kidney grille. It has wrap-around tail lamps that extend from the rear valance to the trunk lid center, a lip spoiler, and a tapering roofline. The grille itself has mesh inserts and the design features dual exhaust tips. The interior features BMW’s Live Cockpit, Oyster Vernasca leather covers, well-contoured seats, open cabin space, slim center console, flat dash design, and large front windows.
The BMW M440i is powered by a 3.0-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder, 24-valve 382 horsepower engine with eBoost 48V mild hybrid technology. This combines a twin-scroll turbocharger with variable valve control (Double-VANOS and Valvetronic) and high-precision direct injection. It is mated to a 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and Launch Control. You get Electronic throttle control, Electronically controlled engine cooling (map cooling), Direct ignition system with knock control, and Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO, COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes.
