BMW M4 facelift

Not only the regular BMW 4-Series models, but also the refreshed 2025 BMW M4 coupe is getting ready for a facelift.

Recent spy shots captured the 2025 BMW M4 undergoing high-speed track testing at the Nürburgring. Following the changes seen in the upcoming 2024 BMW 4-Series, the updated M4 will receive minimal updates to its front and rear ends, as well as enhancements in interior technology.

The current M4 made its debut in 2021 as a 2022 model year with controversially tall and narrow twin-kidney grilles. Based on the prototypes, it seems these grilles will be retained. However, the headlights and possibly the hood will be updated. The inner lighting elements appear to be more upright, similar to those on the 2024 5-Series sedan. The front portion of the prototype’s hood was camouflaged, making it difficult to determine if the current model’s dimples will still be present. At the rear, the changes seem minimal, with revised taillights.

Inside the vehicle, the dashboard remained covered during the spy photographer’s session, leaving it out of view. However, it is expected to feature BMW’s latest iDrive infotainment system, seamlessly integrated with a digital gauge cluster and touchscreen under a single curved glass pane, resembling the setup in the XM crossover SUV. Like the 2023 3-Series, most physical buttons will be replaced by the touchscreen interface, with the exception of a volume knob.

Powering the M4 will be the S58 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine, though the exact power output is still uncertain. The current Competition model delivers 503 hp, while the CLS model offers 543 hp, thanks to increased boost and modified engine mapping. Torque currently stands at 479 lb-ft and may see a slight increase.

Most M4 models will continue to feature xDrive all-wheel drive, although a rear-wheel drive variant is expected to remain available. M4s equipped with xDrive will come with an 8-speed automatic transmission, while rear-wheel drive versions, excluding the Competition trim, will offer a 6-speed manual transmission. Although a BMW M executive confirmed that the manual transmission will eventually be phased out, it is expected to continue with this mid-cycle update and be discontinued when the next-generation M4 arrives later in the decade.

While the M4 convertible is set to make a comeback, it has not yet been spotted during testing.
