2022 BMW M4 Competition Convertible First Look: Drop-Top Demon


2022 BMW M4 Competition Convertible First Look: Drop-Top Demon

If you’re like us, you’re probably not too happy with the Godzilla-size kidney grille that the BMW M3 and M4 Competition wear. However, look at the 2022 BMW M4 Competition Convertible xDrive and your opinions might change. The grille is growing on us, and the topless profile certainly helps the two-door achieve a sportier, more appealing look.

If you still can’t get over the front end, how does a twin-turbocharged I-6 that makes 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque sound? Or maybe the fact that BMW expects this topless wonder to hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds? See, we’re already starting to forget about the grille.

Like the regular BMW 4 Series Convertible, the Competition gets a soft top that’s said to be 40 percent lighter than its predecessor’s retractable hardtop. The new roof lowers the center of gravity and improves its agility, according to BMW. The automaker also says the soft top is made with acoustic and thermal elements to make the ride more enjoyable should you drive with the top on. Available in black or Moonlight black (which has a shimmering effect), the soft top is said to reduce wind noise in the cabin while optimizing aerodynamics. Opening and closing the roof takes 18 seconds, and can be done at speeds up to 31 mph. The soft top also uses less space in the cargo area, which leaves 9.0 cubic feet of usable space—an increase of 1.2 cubic feet over the previous M4 Convertible.
