September 23, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The new M3 and M4 have received an aggressive appearance, and in terms of technology they continue the traditions of their predecessors and will become one of the best models of the brand.

BMW has officially unveiled the updated sports models M3 and M4. Pictures of cars without camouflage appeared on the Web on the eve of the premiere, and the official details were released on Wednesday, September 23rd. At the start of sales, the new BMW M4 will be offered in 3 versions. Both models will arrive in the United States this March and pricing starts at $ 69,900 for the M3 and $ 71,800 for the M4 Coupe. The M3 Competition will retail for $ 72,800 while the M4 Competition will cost $ 74,700.

Prices for other configurations will be announced later. For the first time, the sporty M3 and M4 will have the M xDrive all-wheel drive system. However, the classic rear-wheel drive version will also be in the model line, but the Russians will not be available. In this case, the system will become intelligent – the driver will be able to choose one of four modes of distribution of force between the axles.

The BMW M3 and M4 Competition will be powered by a V6 engine capable of delivering 510 hp. at 650 Nm of torque.

At the same time, its capacity is not the only advantage – special materials and technologies allow it to withstand the greatest overloads. In the basic version, the new cars are equipped with sports brakes, but for a surcharge they can be replaced with improved carbon-ceramic ones.

BMW has prepared a new dynamic stability control system, which offers ten different levels. From the outside, we note the bright front part of the cars, which after the first tests became the subject of controversy – in it, the main place is given to a large radiator grill. We also note the appearance of stampings on the bonnet and a new pattern of front and rear lights. The car interior is made in the classic version for the M Series. We highlight the presence of comfortable sports seats, a digital dashboard and a modern multimedia system. The finish is made from a combination of black and pale blue shades.

The central place is occupied by the M Mode key, which allows you to change the sporting settings of the car and adjust it to specific conditions. Compared to previous generations of cars, the new BMW M3 and M4 received an expanded range of driver assistance assistants. The car will be able to recognize signs, emergency brake and keep the lane. A special offer from BMW will be free car service including spare parts. It will be available for the first 4 years or 80 thousand kilometers.

Previously, an updated crossover BMW X7 was caught in the lenses of spy cameras. The car was spotted at an auto transporter. Based on the camouflage film, the front and rear of the car will undergo changes. And the main innovation will be the shape of the headlights, atypical for BMW.
