The second-generation BMW M4 (G82) came out in late 2020, and it truly is one of Bavaria’s ultimate driving machines. But that doesn’t mean there still isn’t room for improvement. As such, BMW gave the two-door sports coupe a nice little refresh for the 2025 model year.

Based on the same platform, the 2025 BMW M4 Coupe and 2025 BMW M4 Convertible get more power, sharpened design features, new customization options, and digital innovations. These consistent advancements are designed to enhance the performance driving experience.

The 2025 BMW M4 Competition xDrive Coupe and Convertible each gain and additional 20 hp. The entire M4 lineup receives new headlights, laser-enhanced taillights, M forged light-alloy wheels featuring a new bright silver finish, and new digital-forward interiors featuring a BMW Curved Display with iDrive 8.5, new steering wheels, and new interior trims.

Straight 6-cylinder engine with motorsport technology and more power for Competition models with M xDrive

The inline 6-cylinder power units used in the new BMW M4 Coupe and Convertible combine the typical high-revving characteristics offered by engines from BMW M with the current version of M TwinPower Turbo Technology. All variants of the 3-liter engine impress with responsive power delivery and high-torque characteristics up into the highest load ranges.

The S58B30T0 6-cylinder motor is now available in three levels of output, tailored to each drivetrain configuration. The new BMW M4 Coupe continues to offer the driver complete control of 473 hp via a precise 6-speed manual gearbox. At the next level, the BMW M4 Competition Coupe delivers a maximum output of 503 hp and sends that power to the rear wheels via an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. At the top of the lineup, the M4 Competition xDrive Coupe and Convertible now produce 523 hp and transfer the power to the road via BMW’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system, for truly exhilarating driving dynamics.

The substantial power paired with the carefully apportioned traction of M xDrive means the new BMW M4 Competition xDrive Coupe can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, while the new BMW M4 Competition xDrive Convertible makes the same trip in 3.6 seconds. No matter the drivetrain chosen, the new BMW M4 Coupe and the BMW M4 Convertible achieve an electronically limited maximum speed of 155 mph; however, when equipped with the optional M Driver’s Package, the top speed increases to 174 mph for the Convertible and 180 mph for the Coupe.

Modern design accents: New headlight design, taillights featuring laser technology

The redesigned headlights give the front end of both the new BMW M4 Coupe and the new BMW M4 Convertible a modern look. The inside of the LED headlights is more distinctively structured and boasts developments in functionality. Both the low and high beam are now produced by the same LED module. Two vertical LED units, each aligned in a new arrowhead shape, function as daytime running lights as well as turn signals. The technology-oriented design of these new light sources provides for a sophisticated and progressive look.

The LED headlights are paired with the visually and technologically impressive design of the LED taillights, which are standard on all versions of the BMW M4 and feature laser technology and an attractive light design. Inside, laser diodes illuminate glass fiber bundles, producing 3-dimensional light graphics which complement the taillight clusters. This technology was first presented on the limited edition, ultra-high performance BMW M4 CSL.

A new design of the surrounding surface of the both the BMW roundel and the M badge at the rear of the Competition models add subtle accents of sophisticated elegance. The surround of the BMW roundel is now finished in high gloss black, while the BMW M badge situated on the trunk lid is now bordered in silver.

The 2025 BMW M4 Coupe models now offer a unique customization opportunity for the exterior: optional M design graphics are available for the hood and trunk lid. The graphics are available in either High Gloss Black or High Gloss Red, emphasizing the sporty characteristics of the two-door model. In addition, a steel roof option is available at no extra cost, which includes an electrically operated glass sliding roof. When the graphics package is ordered with the steel roof option, the roof panel is finished in High Gloss Black, providing an extra design accent that stands out from the body color.

Driver-focused and tech-forward interior with new steering wheel designs and interior trims

The new design of the standard M leather multi-function steering wheel features a flat-bottomed rim, modified spokes, and a red stripe marking the 12 o’clock position. For the first time, an M Alcantara steering wheel is optionally available with the same design and range of functions. A heating function is an option for both steering wheel designs.

Characteristic of M is the combination of sporty flair and premium ambience inside the car. This is the result of high-quality design and finishing of the materials used for the interior. The interior trims around the dashboard, the control panel, and the cupholder cover now come as standard in a Dark Graphite matte finish. Finely polished aluminum trim has been added to the list of trim options for the new BMW M4 Coupe and Convertible.

BMW Curved Display and new BMW Operating System 8.5

Now more than ever, the new BMW M4 Coupe and Convertible combine motorsports flair with advanced digitalization. M-specific information on the high-resolution BMW Curved Display, which is angled towards the driver, helps the driver to focus fully on the task at hand. The fully digital display combination comprises a 12.3-inch display behind the steering wheel and a central control monitor with a 14.9-inch screen.

The display and operating system (based on BMW Operating System 8.5) includes the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant and is optimized for touch and voice control. The M-specific graphics & contents on the information screen and on the control monitor are complemented by a new interface for the standard 3-zone automatic climate control. Temperature setting, fan speed, and seat and steering wheel heating (when equipped) can now be controlled either by touch control via a dedicated menu at the bottom of the control display or by voice control.

These advancements in digital operation enables a reduction in the number of buttons and controls in the cockpit and a redesigned instrument panel. New toggles for the fresh air vents on the dashboard control the direction of airflow by rotating and tilting. The standard Ambient Lighting now features contour lighting integrated into the surrounds of the central air vents. The range of interior lighting also includes an atmospheric Welcome and Goodbye scenario as well as light signals that indicate an open door and incoming telephone calls.

The standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional includes the cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps as well as the BMW Head-up Display, which projects critical driving-related information onto the windscreen using M-specific graphics, including multi-colored rev range representation, shift lights, and M View.
