It’s been two years since BMW completely redesigned its legendary 3 Series sedan. Now it has revamped its 4 Series Coupe, and the latest, greatest, and hottest version is this, the new 2021 BMW M440i xDrive.
It’s a mechanical twin to the spectacular BMW M340i, which was also developed by BMW’s M division — the German automaker’s in-house tuner shop. Over the last few years, M has been sprinkling its magic performance dust on a broader range of BMWs, adding considerable power and handling to more models. The result is the expansive M Performance line of cars and SUVs that now includes about 10 distinct vehicles, including the M550i, X5 M50i, and X3 M40i. They aren’t hardcore M machines like the M2, M3, and M5, but they offer significantly more speed than the German brand’s mainstream models. The new M440i xDrive competes with the Audi S5, Lexus RC F, and Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 Coupe.
