BMW M4 facelift: interior updates.
The BMW M4 Competition has received a range of tweaks aimed at keeping it at par with the sports car opposition, boosting its engine's output and adding more features.

The new 4 Series and M4 are visually distinguished from the previous models by new lights at either end, with the rear set featuring the same glassfibre bundle technology featured on the limited-run BMW M4 CSL.
BMW M4 facelift: powertrain highlights
The twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six gains 20hp, up from 510hp to 530hp. This peak is delivered at higher revs than previously: 6,250rpm, rather than 5,600rpm. Torque is unchanged, at 650Nm, but this level is held for an additional 230rpm, peaking between 2,750rpm and 5,730rpm.
Rear-wheel drive has been dropped from the M4 line-up, leaving the four-wheel-drive xDrive version as the only option. This is capable of sending torque exclusively to the rear wheels, doing so when the stability control is disabled. Despite the increased output of the new M4, its on-paper performance is unchanged, with BMW claiming 0-100kph sprint times of 3.5sec for the coupé and 3.7sec for the cabriolet.

Inside, the M4 retains its dual-screen infotainment and instrumentation displays, measuring 14.9-inch and 12.3-inch, respectively. The software has been updated from version 8.0 to 8.5, with enhanced voice controls for the climate functions. The ambient lighting has been extended into the area above the central air vents, with a choice of nine different colours that automatically respond to stimuli such as an open door or an incoming phone call.
