Neither the normal 4 Series Coupe nor the M4 has been subjected to safety reviews by the NHTSA or IIHS. The G20 BMW 3 Series, which shares the M4 Coupe's CLAR platform, did manage to score four five-star ratings in its NHTSA safety review, and equally impressive results from the IIHS, so we'd anticipate that its performance-derived relative would fare equally well in a crash test.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Considering the BMW M4 Coupe can reach immense speeds, it is a relief that the level of standard safety features is comprehensive. Key driver and safety assist systems such as cornering and dynamic brake control are bolstered by an eight-airbag configuration and tire-pressure monitoring.
Standard active protection includes automatic tensioning of the front seatbelts, closing of the windows and moonroof, and post-crash braking. Fatigue and focus alert advises when the system thinks you have been on the road for too long. From the base trim, you get active driving assists like lane-departure warning, active blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear-collision preparation. A backup camera, front and rear parking sensors, and dynamic cruise control with automatic braking are all standard. A head-up display and a semi-autonomous parking assistant can be optioned on by means of the available packages.

At the time of writing, there have been no recalls issued for the 2023 BMW M4 range, while last year's M4 was recall-free as well. However, there are two recalls for the 2021 model. One of which is for a malfunctioning passenger seatbelt which could increase the risk of injury in a collision, while the other is related to a possible failure of the ABS. J.D. Power is yet to provide a reliability rating for the M4 range, but it has given the 2022 4 Series range an overall score of 85.
Peace of mind after purchase is provided by BMW's standard four-year/50,000-mile limited warranty together with a three-year/36,000 miles complimentary maintenance and 12-year rust and perforation warranty.
