2020 BMW 4-Series coupe: Ugly grille previewed by Concept 4

Be prepared, the 2020 BMW 4-Series coupe will have a pretty body and a very ugly nose, if the Concept 4 at the Frankfurt Auto Show is anything to go by.

The side, rear, actually pretty much everything about the Concept 4 is wonderful, except for the godawful tall double kidney grille.

Apparently this thing is inspired by the iconic 1936-1940 328. But the grille in that car was both functional and fit in with the rest of the car’s design.

This one, not so much.

Does it really matter how luxurious the 4-Series will be or how well it handles when it’s so facially challenged.
