Both drivers were from Swindon.
An elderly passenger in the Mazda was today in a critical condition in hospital.
No one else was in the Passat.
Sgt Dick Thorpe, who is leading the investigation, said: "At this stage we are investigating the possibility that one of the vehicles was travelling in the wrong direction against the flow of the eastbound traffic.
"I am keen to hear from anyone who was on the M4 at this time and witnessed the collision, or saw a vehicle travelling in the wrong direction."
