The 2025 BMW M4 features a 20-hp power increase for the Competition xDrive version.
New LED headlights are standard, and there are other minor changes inside and out.
The range now starts at $80,095 for the coupe and rises to $96,295 for the top Competition xDrive convertible.
The BMW M4 is not short on power, but for 2025 the muscular coupe and convertible will be getting slightly more—although only in range-topping Competition xDrive form.
Along with some other small changes, the M4 will now be sold with three different power outputs from its twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine. The standard M4 and M4 Competition will continue as before, with the entry-level car having 473 hp directed to the rear axle through a six-speed manual gearbox and the Competition having 503 hp and an eight-speed automatic transmission. But at the top of the tree, the all-wheel-drive Competition xDrive model sees its output boosted to 523 hp.
To no great surprise, this hasn’t had any effect on BMW’s claimed performance figures, which stay at 3.4 seconds to 60 mph for the Competition xDrive Coupe and 3.6 seconds for the convertible. Although impressive, those numbers almost certainly continue to underplay the savagery of the Competition xDrive’s performance; back in 2022 we blasted it through the benchmark in a very impressive 2.8 seconds. As before, a 155 mph speed limiter will come standard, but you can pay extra to increase that to 174 mph in the convertible and 180 mph in the coupe.
There are other enhancements, too. Every M4 gets new LED headlights that incorporate LED running lights and turn signals. At the rear, the M4 will get the cool taillights that were fitted to the limited-run M4 CSL, these featuring "laser diodes illuminating glass fiber bundles" to produce a three-dimensional effect. Buyers will also be able to choose optional M graphics for both the hood and trunk lid in either black or red. When ordered in conjunction with the optional steel roof—which replaces the standard, lighter carbon-fiber one and adds a moonroof—the roof will also be finished in gloss black to contrast with the body color.
The M4 already received BMW’s curved dashboard display screens last year, and the combination of a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 14.9-inch central touchscreen continue on. The car is now upgraded to the latest BMW 8.5 operating system. HVAC settings, as well as the heated seats and steering wheel, can now be controlled by voice commands.
As is usually the case, the enhancements are accompanied by price rises. That means the manual M4 Coupe now carries an MSRP of $80,095, the M4 Competition is $84,195—both $1000 more than last year—while the M4 Competition xDrive rises to $89,295 and the M4 Competition xDrive Convertible is $96,295, a $2000 supplement in both cases. Deliveries will begin in March of this year.
