Engine & Performance
This new convertible uses the same engine as the coupe. This means itâ€™s powered by a high-revving, twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter engine. This engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed manual M dual-clutch transmission.
The engine produces 425 hp and a torque of 406 pound-feet. According to BMW, this car can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds when equipped with the manual.
The 2015 M4 convertible is similar to the coupe. It carries on the hardtopâ€™s athletic stance with its long wheelbase, aerodynamic mirrors, short front overhang and some optional painted brake calipers.
To reduce weight and preserve rigidity, this car features carbon-fiber reinforced plastics in some areas.
The top takes only 20 seconds to raise or lower and can even be operated at up to 11 mph. Once the top is stowed, the cargo space in the trunk is reduced by almost half; 18 inch trims are standard, while 19-inches are optional.
Inside, you will find driver-friendly analog gauges together with a 6.5 inch display screen that is mounted at the top of the dashboard. The screen displays audio and car information.
Redundant controls are on car's steering wheel and the dashboard provide alternate ways of accessing all the electronics. Optional navigation is also available with the Google point-of-interest -search and real-time traffic information.
The navigation system also comes with a touchpad on iDrive knob that allows you write phone numbers, your contact names and all your navigation destinations.
The cargo space measures 13 cubic feet when the top is up and about 7.8 cubic ft when the top is down.
