Mild update brings new headlamps graphics and new interior trim to BMW’s range-topping compact coupe

In a move of desperation to separate its sedan and coupe models, BMW decided to quit manufacturing two-door models under the 3 Series name, and instead call them the 4 Series. As such, the M3 Coupe became the M4 Coupe from model year 2012 forward. The model carried on practically unchanged for the first few years of its young life, but for the 2017 model year (2018 here in the U.S.,) BMW has brought a number of improvements to the M4 that includes LED headlights, 3D LED Taillights, and an updated navigation system as standard equipment. There is a mild power upgraded afforded as part of the facelift that increases output to 431 horsepower, a seven-horsepower increase, to go with a combined fuel economy rating of 32.1 mpg.

Of course, BMW didn’t see fit to do much in terms of visual updates, so don’t expect anything else on the outside to change outside of what I’ve already mentioned. The facelifted M4 carries on with the same front and rear fascias, as well as every single body line that emphasizes the car’s sporty character and dominant power delivery. But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing as the M4 was pretty damn attractive to begin with, so the few changes that come as part of this facelift should keep the model fresh through the turn of the decade when BMW will usher in the second-gen model.

Until then, however, let’s take a look at the updated model, talk a little more about it, and the competition that it’s forced to go head-to-head with in a demanding market.
