BMW F33 4-Series convertible specifications, heavy? 428i and 435i cabriolet curb weight
BMW released the official specifications for the F33 4-Series convertible models today. The BMW F32 435i coupe is stated to weigh 3580 pounds with a manual transmission by BMW. What is the penalty for the folding hardtop? Roughly 300 pounds depending on the manual or automatic transmission choice and options. The 428i convertible undercuts the 435i convertible by 110 pounds which shows the difference between the N20 four-cylinder and N55 six-cylinder in weight.
The convenience of a folding hardtop comes with a price. What these specifications tell us is that the upcoming F83 M4 convertible will also suffer a significant weight gain pushing the car to the 3700+ pound range
. Considering the previous generation E93 M3 convertible with its folding hardtop weighed in at roughly 4100 pounds and the hardtop with its motors added roughly 450 pounds that is a significant improvement for the drop top.
