The performance variant of the new 4 Series coupe, the M4 is designed for drivers seeking maximum thrills from BMW's latest compact platform. Endowed with a twin-turbo engine and weight-saving materials throughout, the M4 is fully prepared to delight enthusiasts while maintaining the dignity of the brand.
What's New for 2015
The M4 is a new addition to the BMW lineup.
Choosing Your BMW M4
Available as a coupe or hardtop convertible, the rear-drive M4 carries a twin-turbo 3-liter six-cylinder that produces a hefty 425 horsepower. You have a choice of a performance-spec six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual. The sport-tuned suspension makes extensive use of aluminum components, as does the body itself. The roof panel is made of plastic reinforced with carbon fiber.
The M4 is further outfitted with 19-inch wheels, increased-width rear tires, and an electric power steering system with three levels of assist. The optional Adaptive M suspension has five modes that accommodate everything from leisurely driving to sprinting around a track. Carbon-ceramic brakes are available as standalone option.
Every M4 gets 10-way heated seats in leather (mixed with cloth in the coupe) with driver memory, a hard drive-based navigation system and HD radio. The interior can be trimmed in your choice of wood, aluminum or carbon fiber. Audiophiles can add a Harman Kardon surround-sound system for a very reasonable $875.
Since the M4 carries a high level of standard equipment, there are only three option packages:
When selecting options, we recommend starting with the Adaptive M suspension. It's a bargain at $1,000 and makes more sense in a car like the convenience-oriented upgrades.
