BMW M5 vs BMW M4

Two Crazy Cool Powerhouses

There were so many cool BMWs on display at the Labadi Beach Hotel during the August BMW The club met for an interactive session with Eng Ibrahim Mahama, owner of Dzata cement and other prominent businesses and also a BMW enthusiast. At the meet, there were some cool Bimmers, like the F82 M4, F10 M5, X7 M50, and Alpina B7, the latter owned by Mr. Mahama. We are going to talk about two of the powerful BMs that were there; the BMW F82 M4 and F10 M5.

BMW Club Ghana is a community for BMW lovers and drivers, and the Club aims to foster a close relationship within the community and provide expert technical advice and other support to its members and society at large.

Throttle: A Speaker Series is a networking initiative to bring its members close to business leaders.

Before we get into that, let’s do a little bit of history.BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke AG) is a German Auto company founded in 1917 that makes luxury cars and motorcycles. BMW launched the F82 M4 coupe as a five-trim level series and produced them from 2014-2020. The trims available were the F82 M4 standard, cabriolet, competition, CS, and GTS. As for the F10 M5, it was released as the sports variant of the BMW 5 Series from 2010 until BMW stopped its production in 2016. These comparisons are based on the BMW F82 M4 and F10 M5 Design, features, engines, interior, and storage.

Looking at the F82 M4 from the front, you’ll notice that the adaptive headlights swivel with the steering wheel, a rear spoiler at the back, and the tail lights come with LCI LED lights. Also, BMW offered the option to add carbon fiber in the form of a front lip and on the intercooler air vents. In addition, carbon fiber side skirts, power-folding side mirrors, and a rear quad-tip exhaust.

The F10 M5 has a center-open twin grill, optionable carbon fiber front lip, and a large rear diffuser at the back. Also, it has active xenon-led running and corner lighting, power-folding side mirrors, 19- inch wheels, and a quad-tip exhaust. The M4 gives a stylishly aggressive appearance with its two doors and side haunches, while the M5 appears muscular but sleek.

The M4 has comfortable leather seats, an adjustable headrest, an optional performance shift knob, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and a comfy leather steering wheel. Also, there is quality leather on the doors and dashboard.

The M5 has  5 comfortable leather seats, a leather steering wheel, a 10.25-inch display, a foldable armrest with rear cup holders, and an OEM performance shift knob. Also, it has spacious back seats with climate control.

The M4 comes with a 3-liter M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder packed with 550 Nm @1850-5500 rpm and 425 bhp @5500-7000 rpm powering the rear wheels. The M5 on the other hand has a 4.4 liter, twin Turbo V8 engine making 560 bhp @6000 rpm, and a 7-speed automatic transmission powering the rear wheels. The M4 has a fuel mileage of 10.75 km/l and a fuel tank capacity of 50 liters, while the M5 has a 70 liters tank capacity and 9.9 km/l mileage. Both cars have large fuel tanks that can take you on long journeys with impressive fuel economy.


The M4 has 2 front cup holders in front of the gear selector, a 15 cubic foot trunk space, and lots of space to store your supplies. The same goes for M5, but with an 18 cubic foot trunk and rear cup holders. Both cars have adequate trunk space, multiple cup holders, and deep armrest storage.

BMW M4 and M5 both have interesting features installed. Starting from connectivity, they both have an AM/FM radio, Apple car play, audio system, CD/DVD player, Bluetooth, Aux-in, and USB support. The F10 M5 comes with a 360 camera, an electronic dust steering adjuster column, and SAT navigation. Both have BMW car assistance and safety software installed to guide and offer assistance to drivers.

From the information above, it’s clear to see that both cars are quite powerful and are capable of reaching high speeds. Both are limited to a top speed between 250-270 km/h and are unrestricted, the M5 is capable of reaching 300+ km/h. M4 can go from 0-100km/h in 4.2 sec while M5 will do a time of 4.4 sec. Deciding on which is more desirable depends on your preference, you know the one that will be better and suit your needs. Personally, the M4 is my ideal choice because I prefer coupes to sedans!
