Once production ended on the BMW M3 coupe a few years back, there were immediate whispers regarding how the style and performance of the model would be replaced within the BMW lineup. Now, with the arrival of the BMW M4 at Prestige Imports, drivers who loved the M3 — but, admittedly, are ready for a little more style and performance — can find it right here in North Miami Beach.
BMW M4 | North Miami Beach, FL
Introduced to the lineup in 2015, the M4 shares many design cues with the popular 4-Series, but maintains all of the hallmarks of the BMW performance division. Let’s look closely at what it has to offer, shall we?
A Svelte, Athletic Design
As we mentioned, the M4 certainly looks comfortable within the compact lineup offered by BMW. However, many of these features have been exaggerated to more closely align with the performance that the M4 offers under the hood. It features a wider track than is found on the 4-Series, while the front air intakes and the hood’s power dome are larger as well. The tweaks are continued on the chassis of the M4, where electronically controlled rear differential and electric steering (borrowed from the M5 and M6) have also been added.
Performance in the BMW M4
The outgoing M3 Coupe certainly offered a great deal of performance, but drivers were certainly right to gripe with its fuel economy. To make the M4 more appealing to the modern buyer, the V8 of the M3 has been replaced with a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6, which offers increases in both power and fuel economy numbers. With its 425hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, the M4 can sprint from a dead stop to sixty mph in just over four seconds, while its fuel economy is expected to be up to 25-percent more efficient than the M3’s V8 as well.
Crafted with the Driver in Mind
Every feature of the BMW M4 has been designed while thinking of those who get behind the wheel, from the 10-way power front M Sport seating, to the Active M Differential with Dynamic Stability Control, to the lighter curb weight due to Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The result is a vehicle that is responsive and operator-friendly at all times.
While we can write about the BMW M4 until we’re blue in the face, we’d rather show it off to person. To test drive the BMW M4 or any of our great models, visit us at Prestige Imports today!
