2021 BMW 4 Series Convertible pricing and specs confirmed: New soft-top variants incoming for Mercedes-Benz C-Class rival

All Australia-bound 4 Series Convertible units are equipped with an M Sport Package as standard.

BMW Australia will release its new 4 Series Convertible early next year, priced from $89,900 plus on-road costs for the base 420i variant.

This means that opting for the 4 Series Convertible over its hard-topped sibling comes at a $19,000 premium in the case of the entry-level 420i.

Powering the 4 Series Convertible is two turbo-petrol engines, a 2.0-litre four-cylinder and a 3.0-litre inline six cylinder.

The four-cylinder motivates the 420i and 430i, producing 135kW/300Nm and 190kW/400Nm, respectively, while the grunty 285kW/500Nm six-cylinder engine is reserved for the high-spec M440i.
