Pros

If you grew up coveting the BMW M3, the M4 is its rightful successor. Power, styling and BMW clout are on full display, yet this muscular machine can also be quite civilized. The convertible’s retractable hardtop will make you feel like a school kid waiting for that first day of summer.

Cons

The M4’s rear-drive setup isn’t as year-round friendly as the all-wheel-drive options from Audi and Mercedes-AMG. The M4’s 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is a few steps behind the competition, and there’s a lack of cutting-edge tech features like an available digital-gauge cluster.

What's New For 2019

The 2019 BMW M4 gains Apple CarPlay, Park Distance Control and Speed Limit Info. The biggest news is the track-ready M4 CS coupe, which packs 454 horsepower as well as more aggressive suspension, transmission and steering tuning.

2019 BMW M4 Expert Review

In the 2019 BMW M4, you’ll find a coupe and convertible based on the already exceptional BMW 4 Series, only with the added benefit of the M treatment. As with the standard 4 Series, luxury abounds, but no one buys a new M4 exclusively for its features. Nope. With this one, it’s all about performance. The standard 6-cylinder turbo pumps out a healthy 425 horsepower, while the track-ready M4 CS bumps that figure to 454. With its aggressively massaged suspension and rear-drive setup, the M4 is a delight in the curves. Every bit the rival of cars like the Mercedes-AMG C63, Audi RS 5, Cadillac ATS-V and Lexus RC F, the nearly $70,000 BMW M4 isn’t cheap, but what it offers is worth every penny.

Driving the 2019 BMW M4

The new M4 is a ferocious counterpart to the standard 4 Series coupe and convertible. With 425 horsepower standard, the 2019 M4 coupe can hit 60 mph in under four seconds, while the M4 hardtop convertible does it in 4.2 seconds. Precise handling and excellent road feel have long been hallmarks of M cars, and that remains true. On a track it's a blast but in stop-and-go city driving it can be a bit much, especially with the idle start/stop fuel-saving function. The M4 still offers a manual transmission, and it even features a rev-matching system for more fluid shifts. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic is available, too, but in our testing, we found it rougher than the automatics used in rivals like the Lexus RC F and Cadillac ATS-V. The good news with the auto is that BMW touts the "Smokey Burnout" function, which does exactly what you think.

Favorite Features

HARDTOP CONVERTIBLE
Unlike a traditional convertible, the BMW M4 features a retractable hardtop that makes this open-air chariot as foul-weather friendly as its coupe cousin. The clever hardtop folds into a compact shape that fits easily into the M4’s trunk without seriously impinging on cargo space.

CS EDITION
The ultimate M4 isn’t for everyone, and will be offered only to a handful of drivers. It bumps horsepower to 454, offers a top speed of 174 mph and can dash to 60 mph in just under four seconds. The CS also includes adjustments to its brakes, suspensions, differential, transmission and steering.

2019 BMW M4 Interior

In the 2019 BMW M4 Coupe and Convertible, you’ll find seating for four adults, although the rear seats are a bit on the snug side. However, the M4’s 2-door configuration has us doubting most owners will care. We think they’ll be much more impressed by the view from behind the wheel. Sculpted 10-way-power sport seats with 4-way-power lumbar are ideal for spirited driving, and the thick-grip steering wheel feels oh-so right regardless of the driver’s hand size. Intuitive controls on the steering wheel and dash help minimize driver distraction, although we’re not big fans of the non-gated automatic transmission. Go for the manual, instead.

2019 BMW M4 Exterior

The M4 coupe and convertible look similar to those of the 4 Series, but their unique traits are easy to see if you know where to look. The hood features a power dome that you can think of as a bicep signaling this performance car's extra muscle. Around back are quad exhaust outlets. While the M4's wheelbase is nearly identical to the standard 4 Series, this beefed-up model has a wider track and overall stance. The M4 convertible has a metal roof that retracts, while the M4 coupe's fixed roof is carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, part of a weight-saving effort.

2019 BMW M4 Standard Features

The rationale for buying an M4 over a 4 Series is for its track-ready performance, and to that end every M4 coupe and convertible come with a 425-horsepower 6-cylinder turbo engine and a bevy of performance hardware. Aside from the go-fast upgrades, other notable ingredients include leather interior with carbon-fiber and black-chrome trim, 16-speaker Harman Kardon AM/FM/CD/HD Radio audio system with USB input and Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay, sonar parking sensors, a navigation system, rearview camera and auto-dimming rearview mirror. Helpful features include a hands-free trunk opening and universal garage-door opener. Also included is BMW Ultimate Care -- three years/36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance.

2019 BMW M4 Options

In addition to the Competition Package is the Executive Package, which bundles features like side- and top-view camera, parking assistant, adaptive full LED headlights, auto high beams and head-up display. Individual options include a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging and Wi-Fi hotspot, and power rear sunshade. Among the performance upgrades are carbon-ceramic brakes, while a standard suspension is available for enhanced comfort. Safety aids include blind-spot monitoring and active driving assistant, which has lane-keeping assist and frontal-collision and pedestrian warnings. Various shades of leather are available inside, and if you want any exterior color other than basic white, that will cost extra.

2019 BMW M4 Engine

Powering the 2019 BMW M4 is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 pumping out a robust 425 horsepower. The Competition Package ups the output to 444 horsepower, while the limited-production (500 units) CS goes 10 better at 454 horsepower. The standard 6-speed manual is a joy and our preference, but many buyers will go for the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Rear-wheel drive is the only drivetrain offered.

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 (M4)
425 horsepower @ 5,500-7,300 rpm
444 horsepower @ 5,500-7,300 rpm w/Competition Package
406 lb-ft of torque @ 1,850-5,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 18/25 mpg (manual, coupe), 17/25 mpg (manual, convertible), 17/23 mpg (automatic, coupe), 16/22 mpg (automatic, convertible)

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 (CS)
454 horsepower @ 6,250 rpm
442 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000-5,380 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/23 mpg

How Much Does the 2019 BMW M4 Cost?

The 2019 BMW M4 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $70,145 including the $995 destination charge for a coupe, while the M4 convertible is notably steeper at nearly $78,645. Loaded, an M4 can reach beyond $90,000. At these considerable prices, the M4 is still in line with the Mercedes-AMG C63. This high-performance German luxury coupe and convertible remain above the starting prices of the Lexus RC F and Cadillac ATS-V coupes. Another less expensive alternative is the new Infiniti Q60 Red Sport coupe. It has "only" 400 horsepower, but begins in the mid-$55,000 range and can be had in rear- or all-wheel drive. Before buying, be sure to check the KBB.com Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for their M4. The M4's resale value is expected to hold up pretty well, but still trail that of the Lexus RC F.

"Best car I have ever owned"

Power, handling, style
So much power it eats tires
Power, styling, handling the M4 has it all. And it can even go topless which is most of the time in SoCal! Ordered the car as an individual build and the result exceeded my expectations. Fit and finish is flawless. From the Azurite Black paint to the Cohiba Brown leather the car exudes style. There are lots of powerful cars out there, this is one of them The 7 speed DCT in manual mode is a beast with head snapping shifts in sport+. The only downside is tire life, it's so much fun to drive hard the tires will not live a long happy life, but I'm OK with that.Read Less

Size is perfect! not too small, not too big! plenty of leg room in the back! which is hard to find now days as far 2 door performance cars. big trunk. gas millage is nice for 3.0L 6 cylinder twin turbo.

"2017 BMW M4 CV."

Engine, Handling, Quality, Finish,Dealer support,
Very little truck space tight back seats
I traded in my 3 year old M235ix for a 2017 M4 Convertible. It is hard to describe the difference 100 hp makes, but I will try. It is wicked quick both in a straight line and around curves.The 19 inch wheels and tires grip the road like you are driving a go cart.The engine has tons of power and seems to be ready to accelerate from a stop or from 60 to 90 to pass someone on the xway.I have had the car for 4 months and have right at 4000 miles on it. The govt rates it 17-24 mpg 19 combined. After my 1200 mile break in check I have been getting 20 around town and 28 when on the highway. My actual combined driving in a 50/50 mix is just over 20 mpg og premium. The top works perfectly every time and to be honest with the neck warmers (something I would never have ordered but came standard) I have been able to drive w/ the top down all winter. I got my 1st BMW in 1980. I have all the safety options on this car from side cross traffic monitor, front accident avoidance and lane departure. They all work seamlessly.I spent 2 hours with the BMW genius when I got the car and went back 2 weeks later with a list of questions. They have a dedicated 1-800 number which I have also used several times to ask questions. The technology is massive and does take time to learn. The voice activation is remarkable, works better than any I have seen. This is s great car the best BMW I have ever owned.Read Less

"Perfect DD"

Chassis/speed/acceleration/overtaking/exterior
Start up sound/options prices/need for sno tires
I bought my M4 in the middle of November and drove it all winter. Its electronic LSD makes driving in snow and ice very easy and safe-with dedicated snow tires - Blizzaks in my case. The greatest thing about his car is definitely the chassis - you can really feel the chassis like it's a second skin with the lack of bushings and taut rigidity. I have never experienced driving dynamics like the M4 at this price point. You can buy a cheaper car with a louder sounding exhaust but there is nothing that weighs the same and has the same chassis dynamics.Read Less
