Golf Clubs Win, New BMW 4 Series May Be Soft-top Only

Finally, BMW got my letter that the folding hardtop in its 4 Series convertible didn’t leave enough room for my tour bag and comically gigantic TaylorMade R15s, so they’re ditching the whole thing, German site Bimmertoday is reporting (via Road and Track and Automobile).
The convertible hard top can weigh roughly 500 pounds, Automobile reports. Cutting back to a soft top could shed some of that weight and spare space in the the trunk.

The German report also says that BMW’s Z4, co-developed with Toyota, will also have a fabric top instead of a folding roof.
The new 4 Series should arrive around 2021, after the all-new 3 Series hits the streets in 2019.
Already, the BMW 2 Series and 6 Series have soft-top roofs.
