BMW Gives M4 Competition xDrive Models More Power; Other Updates for LineupJanuary 31, 2024
Along with the news of the Z4 roadster finally receiving its very own six-speed manual transmission, BMW has announced a few changes for their M4 lineup, including more power for Competition xDrive models.
Both the M4 Competition xDrive Coupe and Convertible both gain 20 horsepower, bringing these all-wheel drive models to an impressive 523 horsepower total, which, along with the 479 lb-ft of torque, is sure to put smiles on faces. Under the hood of both Competition xDrive models is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, paired up with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The M4 and M4 Competition coupes still exist, though, putting out a respective 473 and 503 horsepower to the rear wheels. The M4 sees a six-speed manual, whereas the Competition gains the eight-speed automatic. We think it’s safe to say no matter which way you go, you’re in for a good time when the throttle opens up on your favorite backroad.
And regardless of which M4 variation you opt for, you can expect a few changes for the ‘25 model year. They all receive new headlights and taillights, M forged light-alloy wheels, and new interior trimmings. The new flat-bottomed steering wheel can be had with an Alcantara finish, with optional heating; and behind said wheel is a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, paired with a 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen to comprise BMW’s Curved Display, running the latest BMW Operating System 8.5.
When you include the $995 destination and handling fee, the 2025 BMW M4 Coupe starts at $80,095, followed up by the M4 Competition at $84,195. Adding xDrive onto the Competition Coupe will raise the price to $89,295; and the range topping Competition xDrive Convertible boasts the highest price of admission at $96,295. All models are to be produced at the BMW Group Dingolfing plant in Germany, with a worldwide launch expected in March 2024.
