The new BMW M4 Coupe will roll into 2020 with the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six that we saw in the previous generations. There will be a manual transmission as standard equipment, along with a track-ready high-power cooling system to keep things running under pressure.
An active M differential shifts power between the drive wheels to keep traction when the car is being driven sideways – the default setting for M owners. Selectable drive modes let the driver customize throttle response, steering weight, and suspension settings to match shifting road conditions.
Inside, there are 10-way power M Sport seats with power-adjustable bolsters and all sorts of lumbar adjustments. A Harmon Kardon surround sound system is standard, as is a whole host of safety and entertainment tech.
The M lineup has grown in recent years, as has the level of choice in the individual cars. The BMW M4 Coupe can be ordered with a drop-top option, just like its more expensive M8 cousin. Starting prices will land at $69,150 as it takes the fight to the Audi RS5, Mercedes-AMG C63, and Lexus RC F.
