The new 2021 BMW M3 and M4 (above) have arrived and they both come powered by a 473 hp 3.0L inline-six and can be bumped up to 503 hp in the Competition specification. The standard 473 hp model can get from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds and will hit a top speed of 155 mph or 180 mph with the M Driver's Package. The Competition model takes things further with a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds and the same top speed of the core model.
Both core models will be available with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission, which is standard on the Competition model. M xDrive all-wheel-drive is also available in the Competition spec for the first time ever and can be optioned on both the M3 and M4. The biggest update that everyone will be talking about is the controversial kidney grille redesign, which has grown dramatically in size to bring in more air while also creating an aggressive new look.
Additional features include enhancements to the chassis and suspension for improved comfort and handling, an Adaptive M suspension, M integrated Compound brakes with optional M Carbon ceramics, DSC with M Dynamic mode, an optional M Carbon exterior package, optional Shadowline trim, and a redesigned interior with a standard anthracite-colored headliner, heated M sport seats, and all the latest BMW infotainment tech.
Available March 2021.
