Which M4 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.3 / 10
Comfort and high-performance are often on opposite ends of the automotive spectrum. A soft suspension is great at soaking up ruts in the road but not on a fun mountain road. A stiffer ride instills confidence in the curves but tends to be harsh for everyday commuting. Yet the 2019 BMW M4 finds an elusive balance between the two.
There are more seemingly improbable combinations inside. The seats are excellent for holding you in place, but they won't numb your backside, even on long road trips. Cargo space is admirable, and there's plenty of room in the front of the cabin for tall drivers. What's more, the interior quality is excellent thanks to high-end materials and a logically laid-out cabin.
On the performance end of the ledger, the M4 packs a turbocharged six-cylinder engine pumping out up to 444 horsepower. The M4 also tenaciously grips the tarmac and has more powerful brakes than the standard 4 Series on which it's based. We wouldn't mind a little more passion from this car, though. The engine doesn't sound all that great, and the steering lacks the road feel older BMW M division cars used to be known for.
2019 BMW M4 models
The 2019 BMW M4 is based on the company's 4 Series and offered as a coupe or a convertible. We're big fans of the M4's excellent balance of performance and comfort. And while we'd recommend buying a few optional extras, the M4 is going to be a joy to drive every day regardless of how you equip it.
As you'd probably expect with a high-end two-door such as the M4, there's plenty of standard equipment. For starters, you get a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine (425 horsepower, 406 pound-feet of torque) and either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Also included are launch control, automatic rev-matching on downshifts, 18-inch wheels with summer tires, power-folding and auto-dimming heated mirrors, parking sensors, an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, an electronically controlled rear differential, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front sport seats with heating, driver-seat memory settings and split-folding rear seats.
In addition to the performance and cabin basics, the M4 has a decent amount of standard tech equipment, including an 8.8-inch display screen with BMW's iDrive infotainment interface, Apple CarPlay (subscription-based), a rearview camera, a navigation system, a suite of smartphone and online applications under the BMW ConnectedDrive banner, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system with satellite radio.
A few key optional packages are available for the M4 as well. The Competition package ups the M4's power rating to 444 hp and adds 20-inch wheels, revised settings for the adaptive suspension, an even sportier exhaust, and some interior trim upgrades such as M stripes on the seat belts. The Executive package offers adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, side- and top-view cameras, an automated parking system, a head-up display, and speed limit information.
Other options include 19-inch wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, a heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, a power rear sunshade, a head-up display, and wireless device charging. You also get your choice of either a roof made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic or a traditional steel roof with a sunroof.

BMW M4 vs. the competition
BMW M4 vs. Audi RS 5
Deciding between the M4 and the newer RS 5 will still likely come down to personal preference instead of an objectivity. The RS 5 comes standard with all-wheel drive, which is great for high-performance traction as well as driving on slippery surfaces. The M4 is rear-wheel-drive only, which may be more entertaining for performance-oriented drivers. You can also get it with a manual transmission.
BMW M4 vs. Mercedes-Benz C-Class
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class received a recent refresh and added features but not enough to tip the scales in its favor by a significant margin. The C 63 has a power advantage and a wonderfully burly V8 engine. But when it comes to overall performance, it remains a very close battle. The Mercedes has a greater bias toward luxury, while the BMW is a bit more focused on performance. Neither of these will disappoint.
BMW M4 vs. Cadillac ATS-V Coupe
The Cadillac ATS-V coupe heads into its final year of production as the only direct BMW M4 rival that offers a manual transmission. And just like the M4, it is rear-wheel-drive. Thanks to the Cadillac's Magnetic Ride Control suspension, the ATS-V can be set to be compliant and comfortable or sportingly stiff for cornering performance, and the differences between them are noticeable. Some interior and ergonomic shortcomings hold back the ATS-V.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 BMW M4 Coupe?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
