Facelifted BMW 4 Series and M4 Debuts In Singapore

The LCI facelifted BMW 4 Series and M4 models come with enhanced looks and performance, plus an improved BMW OS8.5 infotainment system.

BMW has just rolled out the updated 4 Series and M4 models in Singapore. There are 4 new models in total – 2 coupes, 2 cabriolets.

The 4 Series range features the sleek 420i Coupe and the elegant 420i Convertible, while the M4 family boasts the M4 Competition Coupe and the M4 Competition Convertible, both equipped with M xDrive (all-wheel drive).

What’s new? The refreshed 4 Series Coupe and Convertible sport redesigned headlights with chevron-shaped daytime running lights.

At the rear, the once-optional LaserLight technology is now standard, making those taillights pop. This is a first for BMW’s volume-produced models.

The M4 Competition models too get the headlamp and taillight upgrades. As the crème de la crème of the lineup, they also flaunt redesigned BMW and M logos with a silver surround, complemented by new 19-inch forged alloy wheels available in a sleek silver finish.

The M4 models can be further tailored with the M Race Track Package, which trims the weight by up to 25kg thanks to features like M Carbon ceramic brakes and M Carbon bucket seats.

And for those wanting to make an even bolder statement, optional M design graphics for the bonnet and boot lid are available.

Step inside the M4, and you’re greeted by a new flat-bottom steering wheel, illuminated air-con vents, and M-specific details.

The infotainment system has been upgraded to BMW’s OS 8.5, faster and more intuitive than ever before. The 4 Series models also benefit from these interior enhancements, minus the M branding.

Performance-wise, the 420i Coupe and Convertible are powered by turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engines that churn out 181bhp and 300Nm of torque.

Now, with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, the integrated starter generator adds an extra 11hp for smoother take-offs. The 420i Coupe sprints to 100km/h in 7.5 seconds, while the heavier Convertible does it in 8.2 seconds.

Both models feature a 50-50 weight distribution, M Sports suspension, and M sport brakes.

For the adrenaline junkies, the M4 Competition models pack a punch with their twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engines, now producing 523bhp and 650Nm of torque, thanks to a modified engine control system.

The M4 Coupe rockets from 0-100km/h in just 3.5 seconds, with the Convertible close behind at 3.7 seconds. The M xDrive system enhances traction but can be turned off to enable some serious oversteer and drifting action.
