BMW is generally associated with making premium cars that majorly cater to families with their rather spacious sedans and SUVs. However, the Bavarian automaker holds a long history of winning races such as Le Mans and still holds the title of making the car to win the most number of titles. The BMW M4 coupe is basically a 2-door variant of the BMW M3 sedan and is based on the second generation of 4-series that was introduced back in 2021. The exemption of the two rear doors does not make this any less family-friendly as the rear seats unlike other 2-door copes are spacious and comfortable in the M4. However, what the 2023 BMW M4 is really known for is its sheer power and handling as the car comes standard with a 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline-6 cylinder engine mated to a traditional 6-speed manual transmission on the standard variant that puts out a total of 437 ponies and 406 lb-ft of torque. 2023 is the 50th-year mark for the M performance line of vehicles and to make the occasion special, BMW will launch the M4 CSL which will be limited to only 1,000 units and is 240 lbs lighter than the M4 Competition models.
With the kind of package that BMW offers, rivals like the Lexus RC F, the Mercedes-AMG E53 coupe, and the Audi RS 5 have a tough run for their money. The M4 offers its drivers an overwhelming number of driving modes and that at times becomes a problem as drivers would find it difficult to identify the ideal setup but that aside, the M4 carries almost all that is needed in a car of this format and also has a variant that still offers a manual transmission, making it one of the very few cars that still offer a stick shifter.
