BMW has revealed the second-generation 4 Series Coupe and as you can see, it's got a new kidney grille that marks a return to the oversized grilles of classic BMWs. It's certainly one of the most radical design changes to come to their cars since the controversial "Bangle Butt" and it will likely be just as controversial. Not only is the grille bigger, but the car also grows in every direction, lengthening by a very noticeable 5.2 inches. 

The oversizes grille isn't just for looks as its angled-forward design delivers cooling for a 2.0L 4-cylinder TwinPower engine that delivers 255 hp or a 382 hp 3.0L six-cylinder TwinPower engine that produces 382 hp. 0-60 happens 4.3 seconds in the higher end engine option and the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph depending on the chosen wheel and tire configuration. 

Both options can be equipped with BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system while rear-wheel-drive is standard. The new 4 Series Coupe also features a 48V mild hybrid system, sportier handling via an updated chassis and suspension, an optional Adaptive M Suspension, and a whole suite of tech that includes driver assitance systems, BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant, and the latest iDrive 7 infotainment system.
