After a long wait, the BMW M4 convertible will finally be on the market sometime during the summer. If you have been waiting to cruise with a sleek car during the summer, you will only have to wait a few more months. The exact details of what the M4 convertible will offer remain to be seen but here is what is known.
Some of the features of the M4 convertible include a twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter 6 cylinder with 473 hp. The vehicle will be available with an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. As with all BMWs, rear-wheel drive is a standard, but an all-wheel drive will be an option.
The M4 drop-top will come with a much softer roof fabric compared to previous models. Being lighter, the roof will close in less than 20 seconds.
One key feature about the M4 convertible is the larger kidney grille, a newer design that differentiates it from the coupe counterpart.
2021 BMW M4 Convertible – The Exterior
The exterior of the M4 convertible is similar to the M4 coupe. The few major differences include the sleek kidney grilles, exotic rear and front bumpers, and stylish LED headlights. The 18-inch alloy wheels come with flared fenders and the signature quad tailpipes.
Being slightly lighter and less rigid, the M4 convertible will offer a much smoother ride on all terrains and is expected to handle well around corners and steep descents.
2021 BMW M4 – Interior Space
The M4 convertible is a decent size 4-seater with ample legroom for all adults. The driver has the additional luxury of the 14-way power-adjustable M sports seat. Overall, there is adequate legroom and ample space between the roof and the head. With ample rear room for seating, a compromise has been made in the cargo space, but this can be increased by folding the rear seats.
As with all BMWs, the M4 convertible has a decent list of standard features, including three-stage heated lumbar support seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, keyless entry, several collisions warnings, rearview camera, and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. An upgrade is available that includes a heads-up display, surround-view cameras, and a parking assistant.
If you can afford a BMW, then the least of your concerns is the gas mileage. But the M4 convertible does offer decent figures. The manual transmission offers 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. However, the automatic redeems this with figures of 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highways.
While the exact price has not been announced, the starting price of the 2021 BMW M4 convertible will be around $74K.
