The BMW M4 was first brought into the Philippines in 2014 as the replacement of the two-door M3 sports sedan, although the M4 was manufactured as a sedan only. Six years later, it received a facelift for an upgraded M3 launched in January 2020.
The BMW M4 has kept its athletic and aggressive styling, incorporating aerodynamics into the design. Its commanding presence on the road is defined by its prominent double kidney grille flanked by pulled-back LED headlamps and fog lamps. Balancing the strong character lines is a smooth, sloping roofline that gives the vehicle a more sophisticated look. Adding to its sleek aesthetic is a carbon fiber roof that doubles as protection from the heat. The M4 rides on 18-inch light alloy wheels.
Inside, the BMW M4 initially comes off as traditional and straightforward, without the usual feast of touchscreens and digital technologies. However, the timelessness of its ambiance is seemingly refreshing. Its ergonomic layout is very familiar, following BMW’s signature style but upgraded through a spread of carbon fiber. Buttons are used for most of the major controls such as drive modes and air-conditioning. On the driver’s dashboard are analog dials for gauges. Completing the sportiness of the interior are wing-back seats wrapped in leather. Color schemes of Alcantara and M tricolors spruce up the cabin for a more vibrant yet stylish look.
The BMW M4 is fully-decked with a fleet of technology, despite its conventional cabin layout. This includes an 8.8-inch widescreen display that is navigation-ready and hooked up with the BMW iDrive system. It can be activated through voice command and provide the driver with a convenient way of accessing certain safety features, apart from the entertainment controls.
In terms of safety, BMW equipped the M4 with a wide range of features that are most fitting for the sports sedan. As standard, it comes with all-around parking sensors, front and rear cameras, anti-Lock Braking System, cruise control, keyless entry, and push start button.
The engine comes with three drive modes—the Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus which enables the driver to conveniently control the engine, suspension, and steering based on the driving conditions.
The 2-door, 4-seater coupe uniquely comes with a lightweight balanced chassis. Its 50:50 weight distribution provides more balance in the sports sedan which is especially handy in dealing with rough roads or going at faster speeds.
The M4is equipped with adaptive suspension and active differential, while stopping power comes from ventilated discs all around.
Under the hood of the BMW M4 is a 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six gasoline engine that can produce 431 hp and 550 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The former comes as standard for base variants while the DCT is for the CS and GTS packages.
