2021 M3 and M4: What to Expect

October 15, 2020
2021 Blue M4

The Most Powerful Letter In the World. A bold statement – but one that the BMW M models more than deliver on. They are saturated with power and built to drive. This class-leading lineup offers track-level performance, combined with the ease of everyday driving. So, what can we expect from the 2021 M3 and M4? Let’s find out.

The 2021 M3 and M4 will be powered by the powerful S58 twin turbo 3.0 liter inline-six. To start, you’ll get 473 horses (plus 30 in the Competition model), as well as an exciting six speed manual gearbox, ZF sourced eight speed automatic transmission, and performance exhaust system. 

BMW M models also have a plethora of settings. For example, you can opt for a loud exhaust setting when the urge strikes, or you can choose low-effort steering, medium suspension, and aggressive powertrain with stability control in Sport… see, you can configure your drive to suit your needs, your driving style, and your mood. In any case, you’ll get 0 to 60 speeds that are sub-four seconds and a top speed of 150 – 180, depending on the configuration. 

The 2021 M3 and M4 are still under wraps with cladding and tape, but we do expect a larger kidney grille and wider front and rear track for a different look from previous models. The aesthetic is sure to be striking, but it’s the power that is the story here. These are incredibly gutsy vehicles, and as the only options in their class with a manual gearbox (competitors Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Mercedes-AMG C63, Audi RS5, and Lexus RC F do not offer this option), it is a whole lot of fun to drive.
