What the Critics Say

“The new BMW M4 packs one magnificent engine. There’s copious amounts of power from just off idle until redline, and turbo lag is fairly minimal. Competition models like our test vehicle get a slight bump in power along with some other small upgrades.” — Edmunds
“Once on the road the first thing that you notice is the rigidity of the M4’s structure. You can feel it from the first corner. The precision and response as you turn the wheel is tremendous, even with the chassis in its Comfort setting. There’s a sense of fantastic lateral stiffness that gives a real feeling of connection through both the steering and the seat. As a result of this the M4 is a car that builds confidence very quickly. It also, thankfully, means that the M4 doesn’t feel like a heavy car.” — EVO

What’s New for 2023

While the M4 and M4 Competition remain unchanged for 2023, BMW has the special, limited-production M4 CSL variant for 2023. This version has 40 horsepower over the standard Competition, for a total of 543, and reportedly 240 lbs less than the Competition as well. This weight reduction comes from the generous use of carbon fiber, in the roof, hood, trunk, and seats. There is stiffer suspension, carbon ceramic brakes, and stickier tires.

BMW M4 Features

BMW M4 Performance

Thrilling Performance

Serving as the beating heart of the BMW M4 is its muscular inline-six engine, a signature component of BMW M models of years past. Your right foot unleashes a precision-built BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder that’s capable of producing 473 horsepower or up to an astounding 503 horsepower for M4 Competition models. Sure to excite driving enthusiasts, the M4 can be equipped with either a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 8-speed M STEPTRONIC Transmission for virtually instantaneous gear changes. Additional standard performance attributes of the M4 include the M-tuned chassis, M Sport Differential, and Adaptive M Suspension for remarkable agility and stability at high speeds. Crafted specifically to enhance sound, the M4 also includes a mode-specific exhaust system that includes electrically controlled flaps that adjust based on your selected drive mode.

BMW M4 Styling

Reimagined Styling

Complementing the exhilarating performance found under the hood, the race-inspired exterior appearance of the all-new BMW M4 demands attention from all angles. Both stylish and functional, the massive intakes within the front fascia provide adequate airflow to both the low-temperature and high-temperature radiators in the upper part of the grille opening. Increasing handling agility, the M4 features lightweight design elements including the M Carbon Fiber roof complemented by aerodynamic fins. When viewed from behind, the M4 stands out with its integrated diffuser, muscular wheel arches, and streamlined spoiler. Another quintessential styling element of the BMW lineup is the enlarged kidney front grille that now incorporates a sleek, frameless design.

BMW M4 Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

With design cues taken from race-winning BMW vehicles, the cabin of the M4 is carefully constructed to support every action of the driver. Standard M Sport Seats finished in Merino Leather upholstery help hold you firmly in place during high-speed maneuvers. Upgrade to the available electric front M Carbon bucket seats for a combination of race functionality with lightweight design and comfort extended journeys. The standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional with a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument display and a 10.25-inch digital center display places all critical multimedia and drive functions at your fingertips. The driver has the option to use touch control or the iDrive Controller to activate the desired mode for the engine response, damper settings, steering characteristics, and brakes of the all-new BMW M4.
