BMW X4 - price, specs and release date

BMW X4 - price, specs and release date

The M40i is the first of two performance variants from the M skunk works, boasting a three-litre straight-six turbopetrol rated for 265kW at 5500 revs and 500Nm from 1520-4800rpm. Naturally, the six-cylinder x30d is the quicker of the diesels, with a 0-62mph time of 5.8 seconds, but the x20d (which can hit 62mph in 8.0 seconds) is more economical, with claimed economy of up to 52.3mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions as low as 142g/km. The anniversary vehicle, a BMW X4 xDrive20d (combined fuel consumption: 5.6 - 5.4 l/100 km; combined Carbon dioxide emissions: 149 - 142 g/km) in the paint finish Alpine White metallic, will be delivered to a customer in Asia.

Based on the same platform as the all-new BMW X3, the sportier X4 looks to be a bit more grown-up with softer creases and rounded edges.

All engines are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive as standard. This performance-orientated model produces 355bhp and manages 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds; economy of up to 31.4mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions of up to 213g/km are the trade-off. The 0-62mph sprint drops to 6.3 seconds, economy only gets as high as 39.2mpg on average and Carbon dioxide emissions are as much as 168g/km.

The X4 seats three in the rear with full-size seats, with a claimed 27mm extra legroom over the previous model. For the ultimate in personalisation, items from the BMW Individual range are also available, including metallic paints and wheels up to 21 inches in diameter.

The BMW X4 shares with these models not just the production location but also a leading role in terms of innovative concepts.

An M40i, much like the X3, and a 30d diesel will be available later in the year, and xDrive will be available. This can be expanded to a maximum of 1430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40/20/40 split.

Meagan Duhamel , Kaetlyn Osmond, Patrick Chan, Scott Moir, Tessa Virtue and Gabrielle Daleman were also on the winning squad. Other social media commentators have since debated whether the sexuality of an athlete has any relevance to their success.

All X4 models come as standard with a good range of active safety kit.

The one we fancy, however is the optional Display Key, with a 5.5cm touch display that shows you fuel level, remaining range, and service information, and can remotely close the power windows and operate the auxiliary heating system.

Apple and Android phones are fully supported, as are their respective smart watches, along with Amazon Alexa and Google Home personal assistants; BMW suggests that a route could be planned via any of these methods before being transferred to your auto, based on calendar entries and other information.

Like the latest X3, the new X4 gets the latest iDrive system, which centres on a free-standing 6.5-inch display on top of the dashboard.

For the second-generation model, BMW's "Sports Activity Coupe" has had a growth spurt, measuring 76.2 millimeters longer and 35.6 mm wider than the last model, while also riding on a 53.3 mm longer wheelbase.

Inside the 2019 BMW X4 gets a standard 10.25-inch infotainment system and it comes with the latest driver assistance systems, like Driving Assistant Plus including Steering and lane control assistant plus Lane Keeping Assistant with side collision protection.
