What's New in the 2020 BMW M4?

The limited-run M4 CS Coupe remains on sale. Another limited model also becomes available -- the 2020 M4 Edition M Heritage Coupe. Only 750 units will be sold globally, but pricing hadn't been announced when this review was compiled. See the 2020 BMW M4 models for sale near you

Which M4 is the Best?

Does it really matter if this generation is heading out the door? Every BMW M car has been desirable, and the resale values reflect that. If the intention is to do a lot of track days, think about the fade-resistant carbon-ceramic brakes. If it's going to be a daily driver, look at the Executive package and choose the blind spot monitoring package. Find a BMW M4 for sale

How Much Does a 2020 BMW M4 Cost?

The 2020 BMW M4 comes as either a fixed-roof coupe or a convertible with a retractable hard top.

Standard features in the M4 coupe ($70,145) include an aerodynamic body kit with flared fenders and powerdome hood, carbon-fiber reinforced plastic roof, adaptive M-tuned suspension (specific springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, plus specially calibrated driving modes of Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus), M-spec performance brakes, Active M torque-vectoring rear differential, 18-in staggered-width alloy wheels with performance tires, rain-sensing wipers, LED exterior lighting, keyless entry and ignition, heated power-folding self-dimming side mirrors, self-dimming rearview mirror, sport exhaust with quad tailpipes, heated 14-way power-adjustable front sport seats with adjustable side bolsters (plus a backlit M logo on the backrest), driver's-side memory settings, leather upholstery, carbon fiber interior trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, front and rear parking sensors, forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, Harman Kardon 600-watt 16-speaker surround sound system with HD and satellite radio, CD/MP3 player, and the iDrive infotainment system with an 8.8-in widescreen display, navigation, speed limit information, voice controls, hard-drive music storage and a USB port.

The M4 convertible ($78,645) adds a power-retractable hard top, wind deflector, rear window defroster and extended leather upholstery with sun-reflective technology.

Both the coupe and convertible are eligible for a few options packages. The Executive package includes adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams, head-up display, side-view and top-view camera system and a self-parking system.

The Competition Package hikes engine power up to 444 hp and brings 20-in alloy wheels. The dynamic stability control system, adaptive suspension and Active M limited-slip rear differential are all re-calibrated to be even more effective on a race track. An M Driver's package includes a day's tuition in high-performance driving, and top speed is raised to 174 mph.

Other options include carbon ceramic brake rotors, 19-in and 20-in wheels, leather-covered dashboard, heated steering wheel, neck-warming vent system (convertible only), wireless charging, Wi-Fi and active blind spot detection. Coupes are also eligible for a sunroof and a powered rear sunshade.

The CS Coupe ($104,095) has 19-in alloy wheels up front and 20-in wheels in the back, plus its own engine and suspension tuning.

The M4 Edition M Heritage Coupe ($TBA) comes in one of three colors: two kinds of blue or a red shade. These choices imitate the blue and red design of BMW's M logo. It's based on the Competition variant, so engine output is 444 hp. The extra hardware is added and 20-in alloy wheels are fitted. This limited version also has its own exterior and interior design details.

The convertible's trunk measures a generous 13 cu ft. with the top up, dropping to 7.9 cu ft. when the top is folded and stowed. The coupe offers 11 cubic feet.

Is the 2020 BMW M4 a Safe Car?

All M4 models come standard with anti-lock disc brakes and traction/stability control. The coupe has eight airbags (front, front side, front knee and full-length side curtain). The convertible's eight airbags cover slightly different ground (front, front side, front knee and extended front thorax). BMW Assist emergency telematics system -- which includes automatic accident notification, stolen vehicle tracking and roadside assistance -- is also standard.

The M4 hasn't been crash tested in the United States, but the 3 Series on which this car is based has the full five stars overall from government tests and is a Top Safety Pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

2020 BMW M4 vs the competition

2020 Chevrolet Camaro SS -- This generation of Camaro has handling that comes close to the best of Europe. The SS version sports a 455-hp V8 that sounds truly wonderful.

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 -- This generation of Mustang is also the best the badge has ever had. The GT350 makes a massive 526 hp.

2020 Lexus RC F -- The Lexus RC F has nice build quality as always, plus a 467-hp V8 to play with. But the M4's chassis has a more pleasing and satisfying flow to it.

2020 Mercedes AMG C 63 -- The regular version out-powers the M4 with 469 hp. Then the C 63 S takes things even further with 503 hp. It's available in sedan, coupe and cabriolet (convertible) versions.

Used BMW M3 -- Thanks to depreciation, a V8-powered previous-generation M3 coupe or convertible could cost a fraction of the new M4's price. Source one through BMW's certified pre-owned program for extra reassurance.
