The BMW M4 has also received mild updates in line with the standard 4 Series models.
The front sees the model gain new slim LED headlights. The LED units have been redesigned with low and high beam generated from a single LED module. And a pair of vertical and subtly arrow-shaped LED units house the side light, daytime driving light and turn signal indicator functions. Adaptive LED headlights with anti-glare matrix high beam are standard in South Africa, recognisable by blue inserts, and feature an urban light and cornering light function.
The rear design highlight is the Laserlight rear lights which were introduced to the BMW M4 range by the M4 CSL. These are now offered on the M4 Competition.
Interior changes includes the BMW Curved Display with a new M flat bottom steering wheel with M Buttons.
Alcantara finish is now available for those buyers seeking extra exclusivity. M specific heads up display is also available as an option. M forged light alloys of the size 19” at the front and 20” at the rear come standard on both Coupe and Convertible M4 Competition xDrive models.
The M4 Competition retains the 3.0 M Power Twin Turbo six cylinder engine credited with 375kW/650Nm driving through an 8 speed M Auto transmission. Normal models have power sent to the rear wheels whilst the xDrive drives all 4 wheels. The M4 Competition xDrive (only model that will offered in Mzansi) has gained more power and is now credited with 390kW/650Nm. The new BMW M4 Competition Coupé with M xDrive is able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and the new BMW M4 Competition Convertible with M xDrive takes 3.7 seconds to reach the same speed from a standstill. The M Driver’s Package is standard on vehicles sold in South Africa, with top speeds of 290km/h and 280km/h for the Coupé and Convertible, respectively.
The M4 Competition xDrive models destined for Mzansi also get the design updates.
Both M4 Competition (Coupe and Convertible) will be available for order in Mzansi after the global launch in March 2024.
