2021 BMW M4 vs. 2021 Ford Mustang


The 2021 BMW M4 is a sleek and sporty sedan that comes with incredible performance specs. The M4 is finely tuned to deliver a thrilling ride on and off the race track. The 2021 M4 features a superb interior that is plush with premium materials. The 2021 edition has also seen its exterior retouched to make the kidney-shaped grille more prominent. When it comes to the 2021 Ford Mustang, you get an iconic muscle car that is incredibly powerful. While offering thrills in spadefuls, the Mustang has some critical flaws. Here is a comparison of these two powerful sports vehicles.

Design & Style

Given that the BMW M4 borrows many of its design cues from the 4-Series, it is hardly surprising that these two cars look the same. But the 2021 M4 has a distinctive edge that makes it look sportier. It features sharper curves and a more aggressive stance. Inside the M4, you get a thicker steering wheel for enhanced grip as well as comfortable bucket seats. The 2021 M4 also comes with a spacious interior that is designed to make the car more functional. With the 2021 Ford Mustang, you get the same iconic look that has made the Mustang famous in the motoring world. The interior is comfortable though Ford opted to use sub-premium materials. The cabin is small and the trunk space even smaller.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to standard tech and safety features, the 2021 M4 comes equipped with a 10-inch infotainment display that responds to gesture and voice commands. This enables operations even when driving the car. Smartphone integration is also standard, featuring both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On the 2021 Ford Mustang, buyers get a dial-controlled infotainment system among other things. However, if you need more tech, you have to cough up more cash for it. This is surprising given that the 2021 Ford Mustang has a pretty hefty price tag.


With a 3-liter turbocharged engine, the 2021 M4 is blistering fast. The base model churns out an incredible 470hp which sends the M4 flying. If you want more power, BMW offers you the option of even more powerful engines. Ride quality is superb as one would expect from a BMW. When it comes to the Ford Mustang, the base model comes with an enormous 5.2-liter V8 which also makes the 2021 Mustang incredibly fast. Handling however is an issue and ride quality is not what you would expect from such a muscle car.

The Bottom Line

If you just consider the thrill of driving these two cars, there is very little difference between the 2021 Mustang and the 2021 BMW M4. However, the quality of the ride matters, and here, the 2021 M4 is far better engineered than the 2021 Mustang. It rides better, corners better, and is significantly more comfortable to drive. This makes it the winner in this comparison.
