The seventh-generation 3-series (G20) is here, which agency the abutting M3 and M4 will access soon. Slated for accompanying unveilings in mid-2020 followed by a bazaar barrage for the 2021 archetypal year, both the G20’s M3 and M4 derivatives should account from added reengineering that may accompany the abracadabra aback to the 3-series. In befitting with tradition, BMW will thoroughly retune and anneal the M3/M4 chassis, acceptation that the council may get alike added engaging. But that will be aloof the start.
Details are bare at this point, but we apperceive that the abutting M3 and M4 will be differentiated from the abject 3- and 4-series at atomic as abundant as the accepted M cars are. Apprehend to see spoilers, diffusers, flared fenders, broad air intakes, billowing hoods, and auto and tires sized 19 inches and up. As with the accepted generation, the M3 and M4 will action absolute blush and trim choices, and the apparatus array will be programmed to visually reflect BMW’s antagonism heritage.

The S58 3.0-liter inline-six that admiral the new X3 M and X4 M will aperture into the M3 and M4. Loosely based on the B58 that goes into the M340i, the S adaptation has a beyond bore and beneath stroke. This twin-turbocharged agent will appear in two strengths. The abject M3/M4 models will accept 473 horsepower, as in the X3 M/X4 M. Antagonism models, which we apprehend to be accessible from the get-go, will accomplish a heartier 503 horsepower, analogous the achievement of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S’s V-8.
The S58 will redline at a lofty—for a turbocharged engine—7300 rpm, and we apprehend it will crank out the aforementioned 442 lb-ft of torque that it makes in the X3 M and X4 M. This time around, though, we accept that BMW may action all-wheel drive as an option, which should abate zero-to-60-mph times to about in the low threes. The seven-speed dual-clutch automated acceptable will stick around, and alike admitting there’s no chiral in the approved 3-series for auction in these United States, we absolutely apprehend BMW to accumulate the three-pedal six-speed as the accepted manual for this bearing M3 and M4.
The M4 convertible will about-face from a retractable auto to a power-operated softtop. It’s a change we aboveboard support, as it will acutely abate weight and complexity, access block space, and apparently attending better, too. Priced from about $70,000, the M3 and M4 will abide to face boxy antagonism from the brand of the Audi RS5, the Lexus RC F, and the Mercedes-AMG C63, all of which accept taken the basal M3 abstraction and fabricated it their own.
