BMW isn’t afraid to go head-to-head with some of the toughest competition in its class. Whether it’s on the Autobahn in Germany or at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, BMW is more than happy to show everyone there what it’s got. Car.com decided to find out for themselves which was the best luxury performance coupe, and the 2015 BMW M4 was up.
The other two vehicles in the lineup included the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V and the 2015 Lexus RC F. Each car was driven on a 162-mile real-world mileage course. This included the Byron Dragway located in Byron, Illinois for testing on each car’s 0-60 mph acceleration ability, quarter-mile time and speed, and a 60-0 brake test, and the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois for a day drive on the course there so judges could feel how the car handled.
Five judges drove them back-to-back on the same stretch of pavement. The judges consisted of three Car.com editors, PBS’s MotorWeek producer, and the Cars.com in-market shopper. BMW car dealers geared up to see how the 2015 BMW M4 fared against the Cadillac and Lexus.
As it turns out, the 2015 BMW M4 came out on top. Powerful, strong, well-built, and worth every penny, it performed above and beyond the contenders with excellent acceleration, comfortable ride, and braking power.
BMW car dealers like Braman made sure to take note – with such high praise it’s hard not to pay closer attention to the M4. Naturally, with BMW, it’s hard to look away as it is. No doubt BMW already knew the answer to who would win the Luxury Performance Coupe challenge, but they’re not one to brag. After all, the results speak for themselves.
