BMW X4 revealed before Geneva show

2018 BMW X4 revealed before Geneva show

Is BMW's fresh X3 not sleek enough for you?

BMW has launched a new version of its coupe-inspired X4 SUV. The new model is around 50kg lighter than before and provides more boot space as well. If you're able to wait until later in the year, then you'll be able to buy the even more powerful M40i version, which can cover the same distance in 4.8sec. The 2018 BMW X4 is also longer and wider than before in a bid to boost practicality. The coupé-like SUV shares a lot in terms of powertrain, chassis and equipment with the X3 SUV.

There's a wide array of available powertrains - three petrol and three diesel units, with power outputs between 135 kW/184 hp and 265 kW/360 hp (fuel consumption combined: 9.0 - 5.4 l/100 km [31.4 - 52.3 mpg imp]; Carbon dioxide emissions combined: 209 - 142 g/km). That range does include petrol engines, but despite the current anti-diesel sentiments in the United Kingdom, they won't initially come here, if at all. There is no word on if and when the petrol models will arrive.

All X4s direct their engine's power to the road via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard, while Experience Control lets the driver choose from Sport, Comfort and Eco Pro set-ups. A collision and pedestrian warning system and automatic emergency braking is standard, as is cruise control.

"With its trademark free-revving performance, maximum output of 355 hp and peak torque of 365 lb-ft, the power unit in the all-new BMW X4 M40i enables it to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds", the company boasts. The new X4 is nearly three inches longer, more than an inch wider, and incrementally shorter than the outgoing model, but most importantly, the new X4 grew more than two inches between the wheels. It also has a 50:50 weight distribution to optimize the handling.

The interior of the X4 shared with the X3 including a redesigned fascia with a freestanding infotainment screen. Paddle shifters are standard for higher-spec trims. 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.

The auto is 81mm longer than the outgoing model, with 54mm added to the wheelbase and 37mm of extra width overall. Wheel sizes range from 19-21 inches.

The all-new 2019 BMW X4 is expected to go on sale in July 2018 with pricing starting at $50,450 for 30i, and $60,450 for M40i plus destination fees. If the range-topping 360hp petrol version also comes to India in the form of the X4 M 40i, this model will rival the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 Coupe, which was launched at Rs 74.8 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
