Offered exclusively in the Competition trim with the xDrive all-wheel-drive system, this new 2022 BMW M4 Convertible makes 502 bhp and 650Nm from a 3.0-litre six-cylinder motor. And this one too comes with the M Drift Analyzer
BMW has just taken the wraps off the 2022 M4 Convertible and it will be only offered in the fully dialled up Competition trim. Just like the Coupe iteration, the Convertible too has been plonked with a 3.0-litre straight-six motor that produces an identical 503bhp and 650Nm. In comparison to its predecessor, the 2022 version makes 59bhp and 107Nm more. All of this firepower takes it from zero to 100km/h in under 4 seconds and it can record a top whack of 280km/h. Given that the M4 Convertible will only be offered in the Competition trim, you can only have it with the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission and the xDrive all-wheel-drive system. And to the delight of fans and enthusiasts, this one too – like its coupe sibling – can be had with the M Drive Profession kit that includes an M traction control with 10-step adjustable limited-slip and the popular M Drift Analyzer.
As far as design goes, the new M4 Convertible Competition looks more or less identical to its hard-top sibling. The front-end is pretty much a carbon copy of the standard M4 with the flared nostrils grille, the sportily sculpted front bumper and the nicely chiselled bonnet. The side profile too remains largely unchanged, except, of course, the roof. While the roof of the coupe blends seamlessly into the body, this one has a more squarish boot.
Unlike the previous iteration of the M4 convertible, this one gets a soft-top roof, and it can be opened/closed in just 18 seconds. BMW claims that the soft top is 40% lighter than the old model and it has also allowed an increase in boot space by an impressive 80 litres. Moving on to the back, with the exception of the small boot-mounted spoiler, everything else at the back, including the quad exhaust is identical with the standard M4.
BMW will start production of the 2022 M4 Convertible Competition in July and with the global launch following soon after. Our Italian partner, Quattroroute, recently got their hands on the 2021 BMW M4 Coupe. Follow the link below for an extremely detailed road test report.
