Get ready to experience a refreshed and improved driving experience with the 2025 BMW i4. The iconic German automaker has unveiled a redesigned front end, sportier interior, a slew of technological updates, and exciting new color options for the popular electric sedan. While BMW hasn't confirmed every detail, these updates suggest they're committed to continuous improvement in the competitive EV landscape.

BMW updates i4 for 2025

If you were hoping for the ever-polarizing "kidneys" to be gone - we have some bad news. BMW has refined the front fascia of the 2025 i4, introducing a new gloss black kidney grille with that familiar BMW shape. The top section is now fully enclosed for a more streamlined look, making the "beaver face" design slightly less obvious.

Redesigned adaptive LED headlights with a "Welcome Light" animation add a touch of futuristic flair. The new matte chrome finish surrounding the grille adds a level of sophistication, while the optional rear diffuser's high-gloss black finish (in M Sport packages) enhances the car's sporty aesthetic – a reminder that even as BMW shifts towards electric, they won't compromise their performance heritage.

You can now expand your color horizons with two vibrant new exterior options – Cape York Green metallic and bold Vegas Red metallic. Additionally, BMW offers a range of 19-inch M Aero bi-color wheels as part of the M Sport package, giving you even more customization options for your electric ride. These additions suggest BMW is keen on attracting buyers who want their EVs to be as stylish and expressive as their gas counterparts.

Slide inside the cabin, and you'll find BMW's dedication to digitizing the i4's interior while focusing on sporty elegance. The automaker focused on removing physical buttons with "QuickSelect" in the iDrive infotainment system. This means faster, more intuitive control of features like climate and seat heating from the center touch display. Choose from five colors of Vernasca leather trim with decorative quilting for a more luxurious look and feel. This focus on a refined but user-friendly interior underscores BMW's reputation for merging performance with premium comfort.

While BMW has shared cosmetic upgrades, they've remained coy on the 2025 model's pricing. The powertrains for the updated models have received minor updates - the i4 xDrive40 gets a 5 hp power bump, while the entry-level i4 eDrive35 gets extra 3.7 lb-ft of torque. Hardly a difference worth shouting about. The range for all models has also been improved, but we are talking single-digit improvements here.

The 2025 BMW i4 updates bring a refreshing take on the electric sedan, offering a modern and luxurious driving experience. With the potential for improved performance, exciting new colors, and a refined interior, this EV solidifies its position as a worthy contender in the ever-expanding electric car market.

"The automaker focused on removing physical buttons" Are they deaf? Nobody wants this - they're not listening.
