Former BMW Designer Destroys The New BMW 4 Series
Frank Stephenson, the designer of the first-generation X5 SUV, has slammed the new BMW 4 Series. The targeted critique pulls no punches. Stephenson says that the G21 is now more generic. The famous Hoffmeister Kink has “lost that trait… that personality” that made it identifiable as a BMW.
But the biggest criticism is reserved for the new front grille design. Stephenson concedes that the majority of the external design is very well executed, very well balanced, visually. But that grille, that grille is the main “elephant in the room” talking point for the BMW 4 Series.
