BMW M4 review – has BMW honed the M4 into a class leader? - Design

In the face of talented rivals, the M4 remains a solid, sophisticated option for keen drivers

  • Serious straight line performance, styling, dry-weather handling
  • Very tricky in the wet and over challenging roads

Design

The M4 works hard to seperate itself out from a 4-series. The 'powerdome' hood returns, while the front end features a completely new look set of air inlets for the twin-turbo straight six engine.

Mirrors, kindey grilles and M4 badging everywhere further highlight the M4's sporting credentials. The back end of the vehicle features a set of quad tailpipes, now synomous with M-division vehicles.

For those still not content that their M4 looks sporting enough, colour choices range from black and grey, to the far brighter Austin Yellow and Yas Marina blue. Those who option carbon ceramic brake discs also get a set of gold calipers.

Wheel choices range from 19-inch black and silver M-Sport wheels to a smaller gloss silver 18-inch offering.
