2018 BMW M3/M4 explained in details

2018 BMW M3/M4 explained in details

BMW took the opportunity at the 2018 Auto Expo to bring in the 2018 MY M3 and M4 in India. On display in the corner of the BMW stall was the sinister M4 coupe finished in a matte black finish riding on the awesome GTS-spec wheels. The 2018 M3 was launched in India at the price of Rs 1.30 crores, while the two-door coupe M4 is priced a tad expensive at Rs 1.33 crores (ex-showroom Delhi).

The dynamic duo got the subtle update last year which are easy to miss even with the keen eyes. Under the hood is the same 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six producing 444bhp redlining at 7000rpm while the twisting force of 550Nm is accessible between 2350-5500rpm. All the madness is channelled to the rear wheels via a seven-speed M-spec double-clutch transmission. In the Competition Package, the dynamic duo can hit the 100kmph mark in just 4 seconds from a standstill. Meanwhile, to enjoy the BMW promised sheer driving pleasure, it can also be had with a six-speed manual transmission as well. There’s an M Differential for the tail-happy duo along with the adaptive M suspension.

The 2018 update adds the new adaptive full-LED headlights and stylish new LED rear lights as standard. It also gets an updated navigation system and ConnectedDrive features, new leather upholstery and interior trims with the Multifunctional Instrument Display. Apart from these minor updates, there isn’t anything else to report about the pair. However, the M4 on display at the Expo stage was wearing a large carbon-fibre rear wing and was sitting gracefully on the 20-inch Star-spoke GTS-esque wheels. Both can be had in seven standard colour options apart from BMW Individual custom paint job. There is a rich choice of upholstery packages as well.

The M3/M4 are proper driver’s car which can double as a daily one should the need arise. A proper sleeper if you may call it. These M powered cars go up against the likes of the Porsche 911 in the Carrera guise, Jaguar F-Type Coupe and its archrival the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S in its price tag. However, the former two are the basic variants of their kin and can be had with a more powerful variant and even exorbitant prices. The C 63, on the other hand, is a tad outdated model and is awaiting an update. There’s no Audi equivalent rival to the M3/M4 on sale in India at the moment. Meanwhile, if at the price of the M beasts you don’t need heart-pumping, adrenaline-racing performance, then there are the entry-level Luxo-barges at the same price tag. So there are the BMW 740Li DPE Signature, Audi A8 L, and Mercedes-Benz S 400. If SUVs are your thing, then there are plenty of options such as the Range Rover Sport SDV8 HSE, Volvo XC90 Excellence, Lexus RX or the top-spec Range Rover Velar.
