The BMW M4 Competition will receive a few changes for the 2025 model year. While the majority of the revisions are focused on small external and interior adjustments, the most exciting development is that the M4 Competition xDrive will gain extra power.

BMW M4 facelift: Powertrain

The new BMW M4 is powered by a straight six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology, and it has 480 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission. The upgrade comes to the BMW M4 Competition (the one that will come to India) with 530PS, a bump of 20PS over the outgoing model. Torque figures continue to be rated at 650Nm.

The boost in power for all-wheel drive M4 Competition cars does not result in better acceleration or higher peak speeds. The updated M4 Competition xDrive coupe will still accelerate to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds, just like the previous model. The top speed is limited to 250 kmph as usual, but the optional M Driver's Package raises it to 290 kmph.

BMW M4 facelift: Design and Interior

The majority of the aesthetic improvements are updated LED headlights and taillights. There's also a new set of DRLs that are now more arrow-shaped and also double up as turn indicators, but apart from that, most of the car looks largely untouched.

Inside the new M4, drivers will discover a flat-bottom leather steering wheel with a red stripe, but an Alcantara microsuede steering wheel is also available. The M4 keeps its dual-screen infotainment and instrumentation displays, which measure 14.9 and 12.3 inches, respectively. The system now operates on BMW Operating System 8.5, rather than 8.0. There is also a revamped instrument panel, new toggles for the dashboard HVAC vents, and more ambient lighting.
