  • 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.

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