The BMW M3 and M4 are favorites among auto sports enthusiasts. They may well be the most talked about BMW models out there and every time a new model hits the market, the buzz is palpable. This time is no different, with the new BMW M4 and M3 offering plenty of power and performance.
The new BMW M3 and M4 will be powered by 3 liter six-cylinders. The base model will crank out a more than respectable 380 hp. Want a little extra juice? You can opt for the 510 hp competition model. The base model will hit 100 km/hr in roughly 4.2 seconds. The competition model is a tad faster, able to hit 100 km/hr in 3.9 seconds. Times are the same for the two door and sedan options.
Manual transmissions have been going the way of the dinosaur in recent years, unfortunately. However, manual enthusiasts can still get their hands on a six-speed manual gear box, or an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. No matter your choice, options are nice.
By summer 2021, the M3 and M4 will likely come with the xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This system will offer three different selectable modes: 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel drive sport, and 2 wheel drive. You can also take advantage of electronically controlled shock absorbers and M Servotronic steering. Dynamic stability control provides even more options.
Design wise, the M3 and M4 look like what you’d expect a BMW to look like. There are some unique features, however, such as a frameless kidney grille. The interior is said to be upgraded from previous models. No word yet on starting prices.
