2022 BMW M4 Competition Convertible With M xDrive Competition
Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Cabriolet
BMW has ‘Competition’ (pun intended) in the form of the AMG C63 S. Sadly Audi doesn’t have a like-for-like rival as the S5 Cabriolet doesn’t match-up with it and the RS5 doesn’t have a convertible model. The AMG C63 S measures pretty much the same with the BMW M4 Convertible in terms of exterior dimensions, save for a few inches here and there. Even this comes with a soft-top. On the inside, it is filled to the brim in terms of creature comforts.
If you’re a ‘no replacement for displacement’ guy or gal, then the Merc will please you. It is powered by a 4.0-liter, V-8 bi-turbo engine, unlike the Bimmer’s six-pot mill. It makes the exact same horsepower – 503 – but cranks out 516 pound-feet of twist, which is 37 pound-feet more than its rival. Also, the peak torque has a lower bandwidth from 1,750- to 4,500 rpm when compared to the BMW. So, if you are someone who loves to speed off the line, the strong low- and mid-range of the C63 S will please you.
The major difference here, however, is the drive layout. BMW has introduced the all-wheel-drive system of the M4 Convertible for the 2022 model, but the C63 S still comes with a rear-wheel-drive configuration. In terms of weight, the BMW would’ve been lighter if not for the all-wheel-drive system. But, it’s well-balanced that way. One’s got a bigger, heavy engine, and the other, a heavy drive system. The C63 S is just 29 pounds lighter than the M4 Convertible. Despite this, the AMG is 0.3 seconds slower to 60 mph, taking 3.9 seconds, unlike the BMW’s 3.6-second time.
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG C63 S starts at $85,600 before destination, making it $700 cheaper than the BMW M4 Competition Convertible xDrive.
