The BMW M4 Competition Convertible M xDrive proved to be a lighter and more powerful alternative to its predecessor, and also has an additional driven shaft.
- The new M4 Competition M xDrive comes with a fabric roof
- Equipped with the same 503hp straight six-cylinder engine as the hardtop version
- The maximum speed is limited to 250kph
Based on the recently revealed M4 Competition M xDrive, the new M model replaces the foldable hard top of the previous-generation convertible with a fabric roof. It is said that the weight of this roof is reduced by about 40%.
Like the standard 4-series convertible, it can be opened or closed in 18 seconds at a maximum speed of 50kph, and the use of glass rear windows and panel arch structural elements minimizes heat loss and cabin noise. Production of the M4 convertible will begin in July; BMW has no plans to launch a cheaper rear-wheel drive version.
It will share its 503 horsepower, 3.0-liter straight six engine with the hardtop, and at 3.7 seconds, it is only 0.2 seconds slower in a 0-100kph sprint; its maximum speed is limited to 250kph. The convertible can seat four and is equipped with a standard air collar system to guide warm air to the neck and head of passengers to maximize comfort when the roof is lowered. BMW said that compared with the metal predecessor, this fabric roof can free up 80 liters of luggage space when stored, making the car’s roof luggage capacity of 300 liters.
Electric adjustable heated sports seats are standard, although optional carbon fiber bucket seats for the coupe are also available. The convertible also comes standard with a three-zone automatic climate control system, LED interior lighting system and Harman Kardon audio system.
BMW has not yet launched the new M3 and M4 series in India. The mid-term update of the popular 5 Series sedan is likely to be the brand’s next release in India.
