BMW India has launched the new M3 sedan and M4 Coupe at introductory prices of Rs 1.30 Crores and Rs. 1.33 Crores (Ex. Showroom, India) at the 2018 Auto Expo.
It was just more than a year prior that BMW introduced the mid-life-cycle M4 and M3 facelift. They have finally made their way to India and sport some minor cosmetic revisions. The greatest feature for both cars are the redesigned standard adaptive LED lighting system along with the updated set of full LED tail lights.
Both the BMW M3 and M4 come stuffed with a large group of highlights including automatic start/stop function, brake energy regeneration, electric power steering, 50:50 weight distributions along with multiple airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Anti-lock Brakes (ABS) and Park Distance control. The interiors of the M3 and M4 are draped in leather with the large 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that incorporates support for Apple CarPlay along with Bluetooth/USB connectivity and 3D maps and can be controlled by touch or by using BMW's iDrive controller.
In terms of design, the new M3 and M4 are a more aggressive version of the regular 3 Series and 4 Series cars. The M3 and M4 sit lower and to the ground and get overhauled bumpers while a high-gloss black finish is applied to the side window trim, window recess finishers, exterior mirror frames, BMW kidney grille, the side gills and the model badge on the tail. The Competiton package likewise includes the Adaptive M Suspension setup to the M3 & M4 which BMW claims have been tuned to enhance the performance and handling of the two performance cars. The adaptive m Suspension brings new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars, along with reconfigured driving modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+).
Under the hood, the power figures continue the same as well. The 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six produces 425bhp of power. The tyre ripping power numbers is channeled to the rear wheels by means of a seven-speed M-spec double-clutch transmission thus shooting the coupe to a 100kmph in just 4.1 seconds from standstill.
