The most important thing about Indian automobile customers is that they do not buy cars that will be exclusively used by tjem as in case of USA or UK. Rather, the vehicles bought by Indian customers are meant to serve as a car for their family too. If you take a look at the overall dimension of BMW M4 based on this special requirement of Indian customers, you will find that the sedan comes with an average of 6 feet 1.6 inches width by 15 feet 3.9 inches length by 4 feet 6.4 inches height. Among the key measurements of its interiors are its rear and front headroom, which are 36.1 inches and 39.8 inches respectively. Likewise, its front and rear legrooms are 42.2 inches and 33.7 inches respectively. Again, while it has front shoulder room of 57.7 inches, its rear shoulder room measures 55.1 inches. All these algorithms suggest that the car can accommodate four adults very conveniently.
An important aspect that you need to take care of as an Indian car driver is the water clogged condition of the Indian roads in the rainy season and bumpy and uneven road condition throughout the year. Thus, as a car ideal for Indian roads, BMW M4 comes with ground clearance of 4.8 inches, wheelbase of 9 feet 2.7 inches, front track of 5 feet 2.2 inches and rear track of 5 feet 3.1 inches. These specifications make it clear that driving BMW M4 through the water clogged roads of India during the monsoons will not be inconvenient at all. On the other hand, the MacPherson strut front suspension, Multi-link rear suspension, Four-wheel independent suspension, and Front and rear stabilizer bar along with 18 x 10.0 inches alloy wheels that are equipped with 275/40R18 99Y performance tires give the vehicle a smooth ride even through the rockiest roads of India.
While availability of some integral safety features is of paramount requirement for any vehicle, Indians look for extended safety parameters in their cars. This is because most of the cars serve as a family car for the car owner. Secondly, the congestion in the roads and the dense traffic at the metro cities during traffic hours make things more vulnerable to road accidents. If BMW M4 is judged based on its safety parameters, the car owners will get specifications like 4-wheel ABS, Dual front side-mounted airbags, Remote anti-theft alarm system, Daytime running lights, Electronic brake force distribution, Emergency braking preparation, Self-leveling headlights, Parking Assistant, Front and rear head airbags, Child seat anchors, Emergency braking assist, Xenon high intensity discharge headlamp, plus a lot more. Thus, BMW M4 is definitely a car that fits the preferences of Indian customers well.
