The 190 hp 420d convertible, which costs either 54,393.28 euros, if purchases this year, or 55,800 euros in 2021. The price difference comes from the temporary VAT reduction in Germany: from 19 to 16 percent.

A new 48-volt mild-hybrid system is standard on the 6-cylinder M440i and M440i xDrive Convertibles. The 48-volt starter/generator unit is complemented by a separate 48-volt battery which allows for energy recuperation, storage and use during driving. Energy can be recuperated from deceleration, braking and from excess electricity generated while driving in Sport mode.
BMW has decided to simplify the ordering process. There are only two equipment options: a basic offering and the M Sport variant. But even the basic model comes with extensive standard equipment, like the Live Cockpit Plus and LED headlights, or the Vernasca leather upholstery with decorative stitching. The new 2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible offers standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility.
