2021 is going to be a year of changes for the BMW M Power line-up as we see the new 2021 BMW M3 replace the current BMW M3 and the 2021 BMW M4 replace the current BMW M4. And for the first time ever a BMW M3 Touring will join the M Power line up.
Whilst release dates for the M3 Touring are yet to be confirmed, here is what we do know about this exciting new model.
If you want performance and practicality, the M3 Touring will have it all. The BMW M3 Touring will have M-specific performance combined with the functionality a Touring model provides – which was previously only reserved exclusively for the BMW M5.
The M3 Touring will be powered by a 6-cylinder M TwinPower turbo engine. Never before has a premium mid-range class estate car offered so much driving fun and precision. Wide axles, conspicuously large front air intakes and four exhaust tail pipes at the rear leave no doubt that the iconic M DNA will be fully perceptible despite the car’s new body design.
BMW M3 and BMW M4
Due to release in March 2021, the new BMW M3 and new BMW M4 are all about performance and cutting edge technology. The M3 has come a long way since its release 35 years ago.
The 6 Speed Manual gearbox will be available in the BMW M3 and M4 models and will come equipped with an 8 Speed M Steptronic transmission. Competition models will be available from Summer 2021 and will come with M xDrive all wheel driving system, for the first time ever on an M Power car.
New BMW M3
This superb new model is no shrinking violet. The new frameless kidney grille, contoured bonnet and new paint finishes means you really will stand out from the crowd.
The carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic roof, distinguished high-gloss black runner boards beneath the doors and the choice of colour with brake calipers show that the small details really do make the difference. However, the stunning aesthetics are not just reserved for the exterior of the new BMW M3, ambient lighting, heated seats, M seat belts and acoustic glazing all add to the overall premium feel of the BMW M3.
The BMW M3 Competition is high performance in every regard, including its superior levels of connectivity and driver assistance systems. It boasts, to name but a few features, a 10.25” Central Information Display and a 12.3-inch screen behind the steering wheel, Gesture Control, and High Beam Assistant. Get ready for a new era of digitally-focused high-performance driving.
Under the bonnet, the 3.0 litre straight-six cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine, comes equipped with two turbochargers, and the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission (the x Drive 4 Wheel drive version will be launched in Summer 2021). 0 to 62mph is achieved in just 3.9 seconds for the M3 Competition model.
Active M Differential and other new track-inspired technologies, deliver powerful performance and sporty handling can be expected in every turn of the wheel.
The new BMW M4 Competition is something truly special. Like the BMW M3, it is available with a new choice of exciting paint finishes, three colour choices of brake calipers and a wide selection of optional enhancements for wheels and seat colour combinations. High-performance driving has never felt so good.
The BMW M4 comes equipped with a carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic roof and distinguished high-gloss black runner boards beneath the doors, and you are sure to grab attention. The 19” (front) and 20” (rear) wheels improve handling on and off of the track.
The interior is just as impressive with ambient lighting, heated seats, M seat belts and the acoustic windscreen. The BMW M4 Competition embraces all the latest track developments, including connectivity and driver assistance systems. This is why it boasts, to name but a few features, a 10.25” Central Information Display and a 12.3-inch screen behind the steering wheel, Gesture Control, and High Beam Assistant. Prepare yourself for a new era of digitally-focused high-performance driving.
The new 3.0 litre straight-six cylinder M TwinPower Turbo engine, comes with two turbochargers, and an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and with a 0 to 62mph in only 3.9 seconds.
The racing-inspired BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine unleashes 510hp and delivers 650Nm of torque. Combined with the Active M Differential and other new track-inspired technologies, powerful performance and sporty handling can be expected in every turn of the wheel.
