What’s New For 2022 ?
BMW chose to make a return for the convertible model with an addition of an all wheel drive option for the M4 Competition (which we’ve seen in the M3 Competition too), for its 2022 M4 lineup.
Engine, Top Speed, 0-60mph & Performance
The new 2022 M4 offers a 3.0 Litre twin-turbocharged inline six engine which comes in two power outputs. The base M4 which makes 473 horsepower with 406 lb ft of torque and offers a six speed manual transmission with rear wheel drive and can blast off from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds And the M4 Competition which makes 503 horsepower and 479 lb ft of torque and offers an automatic transmission with rear or all wheel drive which makes it even more quicker at 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 155 mph.
Both are equipped with adaptive dampers and adjustable brake pedal feel and electronically controlled exhaust system with variable level of loudness and many drive modes to choose from. The M4 is just great on corners with loads of power to show on the straight roads with stability from the chassis and good suspension setup with precise handling and a great steering feedback with carbon fibre roof which reduces the centre of gravity even more helping the car to stay stuck to the road. And could hold the car with even more strength with its carbon ceramic brakes.
Mileage | Fuel Economy
The 2022 M4 will deliver a mileage of 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with it’s rear wheel drive. And the M4 Competition will deliver an estimated mileage of 18 mpg combined.
