Making the newest introduction is the 2017 BMW M4 car which will be a rewarding vehicles for all performance-orientated drivers. It is a near-perfect performance coupe vehicle which can be quite a good model in the right hands. They are making the redesign for the model and its 2017 release and we can expect to see a fairly new vehicle since last time.
People would actually say that the M4 is actually the successor of the M2 model from BMW rather than the expected M3 model, mostly based on its performance and ability. Yes, we agree that this model is a spin-off of the four door M3 model but this one actually has bigger proportions and is a lot heavier compared to that car. It is a car which is closer to grand tourer cars than rather sports cars and is at the same time a stylish and pure performance machine at heart.
Compared to other moles the 2017 BMW M4 is a car which can only work in the right set of hands. It will probably be unforgiving if you do not treat it right and if you do not use it accordingly. Comparing it with the M2, which is a slower version and not as serious as this one, they also host a great difference in power and are highly different in those terms as well.
2017 BMW M4 Exterior Design
When it comes to the exterior style of the 2017 BMW M4 model, they do a good job by shedding some extra weight. This is the main story here as they have incorporated a lot of aluminum and carbon-fiber reinforced plastic bits which are mainly used for the hood and fenders of the car. Additionally, the driveshaft and roof are carbon fiber too and all of this helps the car get the performance it needs. They have put a great emphasis on how they made this kind of a setup possible so the performance of the car is brought to near-perfection. All of this brings to a 174 pounds reduction compared to the car that came before it.
The M4 also borrows the same kind of proportions and characteristics from the 4 Series but still manages to turn the power on that way. There is a power bulge placed on the hood as well which helps you fit the twin-turbocharged engine beneath it. The wheels are bigger and as a consequence there are some flared fenders added to go around them. The aerodynamics are also something to behold as they make the nose, side and rear of the car be able to cut through air like through butter. The design is mainly based so it enhanced the aerodynamics which will consequently affect the performance of the car and make it far advanced.
Inside the 2017 BMW M4 has elements of both the 4 Series models and also the M badged vehicles. The front part has M division sport seats and also M-specific controls for the electronics. The inside gives us a racier looking carbon fiber trim given throughout the inside and also combines with carbon fiber elements which completes the look of a performance car. The front seats are beautifully tailored and the bucket seats provide great support for your back and can make it a lot easier at higher speeds. Interestingly, the coupe and the convertible versions provide decent cargo capacity. In its base form the car is able to offer 13.0 of cubic feet but convertible options actually lose a bit of cargo space when the top is pulled done and it amounts to 7.8 cubic feet.
Engine Performance and Ability
In order to bring us the best that the 2017 BMW M4 can provide is new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 engine that can bring 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. This engine has been used for the previous generation of the BMW 3-Series model and it gave some good specs there, so it is now wonder that they have decided to bring it back and enhance the capability of this vehicle. The model is able to make 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds using the 6-speed, rev-matching manual transmission or 3.9 seconds with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
Convertible options are heavier so they can make the 60 mph mark in 4.4 seconds and 4.2 seconds, also depending on the transmission. But if you get a Competition package with your car you can easily boost the output at get it to 444 horsepower and it makes the acceleration rates 3.8 seconds and 4.1 seconds.
Release Date and Price
As far as release dates goes, the confirmation has came that the 2017 BMW M4 is going to be available in the start of the year. This actually makes it available for sale with the first three months of the start of the year, with the model possibly getting a release date come February. The model will cost you about 66,220 USD as a base MSRP, which is a serious price for serious customers. The convertible version is far pricier and will amount to 74,700 USD.
