2021 BMW M3 and M4.

  • BMW just unveiled the brand-new 2021 M3 and M4.

  • In Competition guise, the cars make 503 horsepower.

  • You can get the non-Competition models with a six-speed manual, though.

  • BMW will launch the M3 and M4 in March 2021 with a starting price of $69,900 for the M3 sedan and $71,800 for the M4 coupe.

  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

First things first. Yes, the new M3 and M4 wear the big grille. Much like death or taxes, the big grille — this diptych of doom — is inescapable. But, hopefully, the high-horsepower engines and option for a six-speed manual make an attractive enough trade-off for you to get into BMW’s latest rides, unveiled on Tuesday.

As a quick recap, the M3 was historically the performance-version of the 3 Series. It came as a coupe, convertible, or sedan. Then BMW sectioned off the 3 Series coupe to become the 4 Series. So now we have the M3 and M4. 

The new M3 and M4 mark the current sixth generation of the 3 Series, internally called the G80 and the G82 for the 4 Series. (More numbers were, obviously, necessary.) More importantly, both use BMW’s 3.0-liter, twin-turbo straight-six engine that produces 473 horsepower in the regular models and 503 horsepower in the higher-performance Competition models, according to a company press release.

The M3 sedan will start at $69,900 and the M3 Competition sedan will start at $72,800. The M4 coupe will start at $74,700 and the M4 Competition coupe will start at $74,700. BMW also notes that a $995 destination fee will apply to all pricing.

The cars will be launched globally in March 2021. Keep reading to see them both.
