Interested in a BMW M4?
    Let us help you take the next step

    The 2024 BMW M4 will come to Australia between April and June wearing a higher price than its predecessor, owing to new equipment and a power increase for the two-door performance car.

    As reported earlier today, the BMW M4 has undergone a minor facelift, with new lights at the front and rear, an upgraded infotainment system, and a power increase for the flagship Competition xDrive variants.

    Priced from $168,700 before on-road costs in manual, rear-wheel-drive guise, the base M4 is now $2200 dearer, while the range has been trimmed to three variants with the axing of the rear-wheel-drive M4 Competition.

    “The high volume of new BMW models introduced to the local market prompts us to constantly assess our product portfolio in line with customer demand and our commitment to offering products that suit individual needs,” a BMW Australia spokesperson told CarExpert.

    “This has led us to restructure certain model line-ups for 2024.”    

    Its all-wheel-drive Competition xDrive siblings live on as a coupe ($186,500 plus on-road costs, up $3400) and a convertible ($197,900, up $3300).

    The 2024 BMW M4 is due in showrooms during the fourth quarter of this year (April to June inclusive).

    All three BMW M4s are powered by twin-turbo 3.0-litre inline-six cylinder engines, though with varying outputs.

    The base M4 coupe produces 353kW of power and 550Nm of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

    Both the M4 Competition xDrive coupe and convertible have received a 15kW power increase, now developing 390kW and 650Nm, driving all four wheels through an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.

    Efficiency

    BMW quotes varying fuel economy figures for the M4, with the manual-equipped coupe returning 10.0-10.1L/100km on the European WLTP test cycle, the M4 Competition xDrive coupe returning 9.7-9.9L/100km and the convertible returning 10.2-10.3L/100km.

    While the updated BMW M4’s dimensions and weights are yet to be announced, the pre-facelift model measured 4794mm long, 1887mm wide, and 1393mm tall on a 2857mm wheelbase.
