The BMW M4 was originally the coupe version of the M3, until last generation when BMW split the car into two different badges. That doesn't change the performance, though, as an M by any other name is still as sweet.
The M4 is all-new this year with new styling, improved performance, and an all-new interior, all on an even more capable chassis.
Two versions of the M4 are available, the first with 473 hp and a six-speed manual transmission, the other the 503 hp M4 Competiton that is automatic only. Both use the same 3.0L twin-turbo inline-six, with the Competition model tweaked to make those extra ponies.
BMW M4 comes well equipped with a heated wheel, M drive modes, Sport differential, adaptive M suspension, variable steering, multi-way adjustable power seats with lumbar adjustment, heated front M Sports seats, parking sensors, radar cruise control, and driving assistant active safety tech as well as Harman Kardon audio. Ambient lighting, fold-down rear seat, and keyless entry and start are all part of the package.
Premium Package adds ventilated seats (or for extra money carbon buckets also offered), surround view cameras, power trunk, dashcam recorder built-in, wireless charging, laser headlights, and head up display. Step up to the Ultimate package and get full Merino leather in a range of colours, sunroof, laser lights, M Drive Professional, M Carbon seats, digital display key fob, and the remainder of Premium Package options. The Competition M4 offers Premium and Ultimate packages as well as an advanced driver assist feature pack.
BMW has not yet released M4 fuel economy.
BMW's M4 competes with Audi's RS5 as well as the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe. Other rivals are the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadofoglio, Shelby versions of the Ford Mustang, the Porsche 911, and even the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray if you don't need rear seating.
