The BMW 4-Series coupe and convertible have rolled into 2025 with a comprehensive refresh, so naturally the hotter M4 variants have gotten upgrades for the new model year as well. Like its lesser brethren, the M4's changes largely revolve around looks, but that doesn't leave under-the-hood upgrades completely out of the question.




Perhaps the most exciting change here is a 20-hp boost for the top-of-the-line M4 Competition xDrive, bringing output up to 523 hp for both the coupe and convertible body styles. That pretty much sums up the mechanical tweaks, as this model still reaches 60 mph in 3.4 seconds in coupe form and 3.6 seconds without the roof, and top speed remains at 155 mph. The Competition xDrive can, however, max it out to 180 mph when the M Driver's Package is checked off.


Unfortunately, all other M4 variants carry over unchanged mechanically. The rear-wheel drive M4 Competition continues to make "only" 503 hp, and the regular M4 delivers the same 473 hp as last year. Fortunately, the latter model sticks with its six-speed manual option.


If you've already taken a look at the regular 2025 4-Series, the M4's visual adjustments will come as no surprise. Up front, it gains a new set of headlights with redesigned LED signatures that adopt a new "arrowhead" design, while updated taillights at the back take a page out of the hotter M4 CSL's playbook with a jaw-dropping new "Laserlight" effect. If you pull out the microscope, you'll also notice that the M branding on the trunk lid now features a silver border, while the BMW roundel in the center gains a new gloss black finish. The M4 also rides on refreshed wheel designs, and there's a set of M-branded decals on offer.



Stepping inside, there's a new flat-bottomed steering wheel with updated spokes a red strip located at 12 o'clock, and a newly-optional Alcantara version. Dark graphite matte interior trim is now marked as standard, and the synthetic leather material on the dashboard has been refined. The large curved display carries over, though it now features iDrive OS 8.5, which unfortunately moves many physical controls to a digital format. Elsewhere, the digital instrument display benefits from new graphics, the air vents get some small design tweaks, and ambient lighting spreads to more areas in the cabin.


Pricing for the 2025 BMW M4 coupe opens up at $79,100, while opting for the M4 Competition coupe raises that to $83,200, and the Competition xDrive tops things out at $88,300. The M4 Competition xDrive convertible sits at the very top of the lineup with a price tag of $95,300. You won't be seeing the new M4 on U.S. roads for quite a while, however, as production of the updated model won't begin until March 2025.
