2017 BMW 4-Series vs. Its Competition

2017 BMW M4
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe is the likely challenger to the M4 crown, and we've actually preferred it in earlier iterations over the BMW.

The 2017 Audi S5 will be a limited production run ahead of a completely new S5 due next year for 2018.

The Cadillac ATS-V Coupe feels just as insane as the M4 at some points, but its manual transmission can let it down.

Porsche's 718 twins are more natural competitors against the two-door M4 (rather than the four-door M3), particularly in "S" guise.

Quick Specs
The 2017 BMW M4 is a near-perfect performance coupe that can be hugely rewarding to competent drivers.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class adds to the impressive roster with a convertible version this year and a newly minted AMG C43 version. Bavaria is even better now.
The 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman remains some of our favorite performance cars; they're thrilling to drive, and in base form they're exceptional sports car value, too.
