BMW M3 Sedan Competition
The standard-bearers for racing-car exhilaration in everyday driving are primed for action in new-generation form. 35 years after the first BMW M3 took to the stage, BMW M GmbH is presenting the latest generation of its high-performance models at the premium end of the midsize class. The new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupé stand shoulder-to-shoulder in their interpretation of dynamically thrilling driving pleasure - characterised by a time-honoured sporting spirit and executed with cutting-edge technology. The two cars occupy very different territory: one a sedan with space for five occupants, the other a four-seater coupé. And the powertrain technology at work also offers drivers greater scope than ever for indulging personal preferences. The high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology at the heart of both models is available in two output levels. Nowhere else in this segment can customers choose a six-speed manual gearbox for their high-performance sports car, while an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and the intelligent all-wheel-drive system M xDrive - as an alternative to classical rear-wheel drive - both also find their way onto the specification sheets.
A variety of powertrain options unsurpassed in their segments provides both the new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupé with three distinct character options. Offering a performance experience of authentic purity are the examples of the new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupé which channel the six-cylinder in-line engine's maximum output of 353 kW/480 hp to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. In the new BMW M3 Competition Sedan and new BMW M4 Competition Coupé, meanwhile, the 375 kW/510 hp version of the straight-six teams up with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and sends its power to the rear wheels as standard. The two Competition models will also be available (est. from summer 2021) with M xDrive, handing them even greater directional stability and supreme traction without compromising on agility.
