BMW X4 gets bigger, faster and stronger

Like the X3, the X4 is underpinned by BMW's CLAR platform (first introduced on the new 7-series), which has resulted in weight savings of about 50kg, as compared to the previous model.

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. But, as these pictures show, the X4's genes are obvious from the front, with the grille, bumper and LED headlights identical to the X3's.

BMW has launched a new version of its coupe-inspired X4 SUV.

Globally, the new X4 will be offered with three gasoline and four diesel engine options, ranging in output from 184 horsepower and 360.

Powering the BMW X4 xDrive30i is a four-cylinder powertrain making 248-hp, propelling this rocket from 0-60 in a respectable 6-seconds. The now sole petrol option is also the most powerful, the M40i with 360hp and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.However two more mainstream units are expected to join the range with 186 and 255hp respectively. The boot has a capacity of 525 litres and the load space can be expanded to a maximum of 1,430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40:20:40 split. These include a panoramic glass roof, as well as three-zone climate control, and heated and cooled seats.

The new X4 includes BMW's latest infotainment hardware and software, which includes a 10.25-inch touchscreen. Dubbed a Sports Activity Vehicle by BMW, the original X4 received surprisingly good reviews, with solid engineering underpinning its junior X6 liftback styling.

It goes from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. That vehicle will get from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds.
