Formerly known as the BMW M3 Coupe and Cabriolet before getting its own nomenclature such as the 2018 BMW M4, this high performance 2 door BMW has a proud history. Even if new rivals emerge, the 2018 BMW M4 is as proven as its power and gives immediate access to a tribe of driving enthusiasts. If you opt for an automatic transmission in your high performance coupe or convertible, be aware that the BMW 7 speed dual clutch is not as refined as its competitors. If you want to improve traction on all drive wheels, the next Audi RS5 seems to be the best.
Exterior and Interior
The coupe and convertible of the 2018 BMW M4 resemble those of the 4 series. However, their unique features are easy to see if you know where to look. The hood has an energy dome that can be considered a bicep that indicates the extra muscle of this high performance car. There are four way exhaust outlets at the rear. Although the wheelbase of the 2018 BMW M4 is almost identical to that of the standard 4 series, this reinforced model has a wider track and a general position. The 2018 BMW M4 convertible has a metal roof that retracts, while the fixed roof of the 2018 BMW M4 coupe is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, which helps to save weight.
The coupe and convertible of the 2018 BMW M4 have a capacity of four people. Like their most traditional Series 4 brothers, the space is reduced to the back. It probably does not matter to the buyers of the 2018 BMW M4, as their main concern will be driving. The serious driving business is emphasized here, thanks to the deeply sculpted 10 position power seats and the 4 way lumbar support. The steering wheel is well padded and most controls are intuitive. The lever that is not closed for the automatic transmission may take some time to get used to, or it’s just another reason to take a stick.
When BMW split the 3 Series into two different models, it also determined that the old naturally aspirated V-8 was also unable to meet emissions and fuel economy requirements. As such, the V-8 has been turned off and, under the spotlights, is a turbocharged, 3.0 liter in line six cylinder engine that uses M TwinPower Turbo technology, in association with Valvetronic and Double VANOS distributors. The new 3.0 liter also develops more power than the old V-8 it replaces, increasing horsepower at the front of 11 horsepower and an astonishing 111 pound pair of torque for a total production of 425 ponies and 406 pounds. foot Like the rest of the mid-cycle update of the 2018 BMW M4, there is not much change under the hood, but BMW has managed to massage six more ponies, bringing the total production to 431 between 5,500 and 7,300 rpm and 406 lb-ft between 1,850 and 5,500 rpm. As a result, the same transmissions are also transferred. So you can choose between a seven speed automatic clutch M or a six speed manual. The dual clutch is the ideal solution for those who want an optimal acceleration of the line, but with fast changes of speed, but you will clearly find more enthusiasm if you choose to row alone and with the six speed manual gearbox. According to BMW, the new 2018 BMW M4 achieves a combined fuel economy of 32.1 miles per gallon, regardless of the transmission you choose, and pumps 204 grams of CO2 per km. The optional dual clutch transmission comes with the BMW Drivelogic system that lets you choose between a manual gearshift mode that offers crisp and fast changes for more aggressive driving or you can leave it in fully automatic mode and enjoy smooth and comfortable changes. The return trip The DCT also includes a launch control function that limits the rotation of the steering wheel and prepares you for a perfect race at 100 km / h each time. The carbon fiber transmission shaft and the M active differential are transferred to the new model of the year, as is the stability control system that distributes the torque between the rear wheels and the dynamic mode M that help to burn some rubber if you are willing to smoke tires occasionally. Finally, if 431 ponies are not enough and you want something else without updating the next model of the range, you can opt for the competition pack that offers a special melody in ecus. Increase the power of 19 additional ponies to bring the total power to 450. With the Competition package, fuel consumption remains the same at 32.1 mpg (31.0 mph in the convertible), while CO2 emissions increase 204 grams. per kilometer in coupe or 213 grams per kilometer in convertible. However, the most important is that its speed is reduced to 100 km / h to 4.0 seconds with the double clutch or to 4.2 seconds if you want to row yours. Meanwhile, the convertible performs the same sprint in 4.3 seconds with the DCT or in 4.5 seconds with the six speed manual transmission. As usual with these German masterpieces, the maximum speed is limited to 155 mph.
