Compared to the rear-wheel-drive model, it reaches 60 mph in 60 seconds.

We know that the xDrive version has been available. Since BMW launched the rear-wheel-drive M3 sedan and M4 coupe in September 2020. The AWD is reserved for cars, so if you don’t mind losing the gear lever, it’s finally here. These versions are competition versions only. Also and are much faster than the RWD version specified in the competition. Before delving into all the juicy data. Remember that these are the first M3 and M4 models to offer AWD.

The M3 Competition xDrive and M4 Competition xDrive. These are dedicated to the ZF-developed 8-speed torque converter automatic transmission. And share a twin-turbo 3.0-liter in-line 6-cylinder engine with the RWD competition model. The power remains the same at 503hp and 479 lb-ft (650 Newton-meters) of torque. But the 0-60mph time is reduced by 0.4 seconds to just 3.4 seconds. The maximum electronic speed is limited to 155 mph (250 km / h). But the optional M Performance package relaxes the limiter to 180 mph (290 km / h).

It’s worth mentioning that the US model weighs 3,990 pounds (1,809 kg). As some have expressed concern that the latest generation M cars are significantly heavier. Needless to say, the hardware controlled by Drive. It has increased significantly, but BMW believes its benefits outweigh the extra volume.

how is it? In addition to faster acceleration. The M3 and M4 competition models equipped with AWD also “have a wider torque range between acceleration and dynamic driving.” The rear-biased xDrive automatically transfers torque. Also between the two shafts via an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch. There is also an Active M brand differential used to distribute torque to the rear wheels.

During normal driving with the 4WD default settings enabled. Torque is distributed to the rear axle and only transmitted to the front wheels when additional traction is required. Switching to the 4WD Sport transfers more torque to the rear axle. But the 2WD can provide a pure rear-wheel-drive experience to the pure brother M5 with dynamic stability control turned off.

When it comes to pricing subtleties, the 2022 BMW M3 Competition xDrive starts at $ 76,900. Which is $ 4,100 higher than the equivalent RWD model. If you choose the M4 Competition xDrive. The price increase is the same. That means you have to pay $ 78,800. The price does not include the $ 995 destination and fees.

BMW will launch Dynamic Duo in the United States in August. The current M3 / M4 lineup will be further developed with the addition of the M4 Convertible. And also the constant M3 Touring, but unfortunately, the latter is not available in the United States. Recently, there are rumors that the hotter M4. It has returned to the “CSL” nickname. Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that it will be an exciting time for loyal supporters of these performance machines.
