Sneak Preview of the 2021 BMW M4 Convertible

One of the most intriguing models in its segment, the 2021 BMW M4 Convertible, arrives as the latest addition to the M3 and M4 lineup. Not only does it look much better than we had expected, but it also showcases a different roof framework than the previous one. Enthusiasts don’t often favour convertibles, but they should be because of the enhanced exhaust noise, excitement factor, and the road connection that they provide. And that should be the case with this latest BMW M4 Convertible.

2021 BMW M4 Convertible’s Soft Top

In terms of aesthetics, this convertible obviously is based on the M4 Coupe, but the roof chopped off. Surprisingly, it looks rather good, which is unusual for coupes-turned-convertibles. The sleek body lines, smooth surfaces, and gracefully swollen wheel arches offer it an elegant yet muscular look with the roof down. It looks like a classy, performance GT car with the roof up, which is now a soft-top. Instead of a drop-top M3, imagine a mini-M8 Convertible.

This new roof opens and closes in eighteen seconds and can travel at speeds of up to 31 mph. So it’s quick and can be used on the go, which is convenient. You can also operate the roof with the key, allowing you to fold the roof down while the vehicle is parked before entering. It is also ideal on hot days when you want to get the hot air out of the cabin.

Along with its impressive appearance, it also offers practicality and functional improvement. It enables BMW to incorporate the additional structural bracing needed when the fixed roof is removed without increasing the overall curb weight. Compared to the previous vehicle, it reduces the lower centre of gravity, which improves agility and driving feel.

Same Monstrous Engine

As expected, the 2021 BMW M4 Convertible will only be available in Competition trim. It will come with its 3.0 litre twin-turbo I6 producing 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. Only an eight-speed automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel-drive will be available for that engine. The drop-top M4 isn’t available with a manual transmission or rear-wheel drive. BMW also claims that 0-60 mph takes only 3.6 seconds.
