BMW X4 is Ready to Rock, Roll, and Repeat

2018 BMW X4

Whether or not you agree with BMW's "sports activity coupe" nomenclature, the truth is, weirdo swoopy crossovers are a hit around the globe.

The X4 also gets bigger, growing by 81mm and helping make the new X4 look slicker, there's also an extra 27mm of legroom in the back and more room in the boot too, and with an interior pretty much the same as the new X3. The X4 has received a more premium feel for the 2019 model year.

What materials you'll find inside the new X4 depend on which version you go for, but many features are shared with the latest X3. The X4 will also offer adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot warnings, and cross-traffic alerts front and rear.

However, the claimed reduction in weight of the X4's body structure is offset by an increase in size, leading to a kerb weight for the base X4 xDrive20i that is just 15kg less than its predecessor at 1720kg though it claims a flawless 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution. Boot space has also been upped by 25 litres to 525 litres. With its more coupe-like body, the goal was to come up with BMW describes as the look of an "eye-catching athlete". BMW says iDrive now comes with improved voice recognition; just say "I'm hungry" and a list of nearby restaurants pops up. The M twins are called the X4 M40i and the BMW X4 M40d. There's also a next-generation Head-Up Display option that's 75% larger than on the old ute.

Sporting a lower stance and wider tracks, BMW's compact luxury SUV with that fastback styling is all-new for 2019 and arriving at dealerships this July 2018 starting at US$50,450 for 30i and US$60,450 for the M40i (plus fees, charges).

The most frugal option, and our recommended choice in the current X4, is xDrive20d, which has claimed Carbon dioxide emissions of 142g/km and fuel economy of up to 52.3mpg.

BMW's X4 M40i model features an inline six-cylinder engine that offers 355 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque.

The BMW X4 will be available with a range of four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, and all come with xDrive four-wheel drive as standard.

This latest generation of the system adds less weight, while its internal efficiency has been increased while the intelligent all-wheel drive systtem also splits drive power to maximise sporting performance with the rear-biased set-up producing a highly rewarding driving experience, especially when powering through corners.

The understated xLine trim features sports seats covered on a mix of leather and fabric, an d high-gloss black trim elements (including the audio and air conditioning control panels) with pearl-effect chrome surrounds and accent strips.

The new X4 will hit USA showrooms on 15 February and will have a starting price of $50,450 for the xDrive30i and for the M40i the customers will need to spend extra $10,000. A 10.3ins version is available as an optional extra.
