BMW reveals new X4 SUV

BMW reveals new X4 SUV

The BMW ConnectedDrive will offer Real-Time Traffic Information, On-Street Parking Information and the Concierge Services.

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 2019 X4 is now just over 3-inches longer than its predecessor, while its wheelbase has grown just over 2-inches longer and its now 1.4-inches wider. Wheels range in size from 19 to 21 inches, and further options from BMW Individual stand to make it even more personal. BMW is not a auto company to be left behind in the crossover stakes.

The BMW X4 will receive two new, more powerful engines when the redesigned compact crossover goes on sale in July in the U.S. All lighting, incidentally, is LED. The shoulder line runs from the front fender all the way to the rear taillight, which gives it a low and aggressive look. That coupe-like roofline, meanwhile tapers rearward, flowing into the back glass.

Although not announced yet, the X4 is expected to spawn a hotter M model for the first time.

The M Performance package adds sporty details like front and rear aprons and side skirts, as well as High-gloss Black accents. A 10.25-inch touchscreen can be had along with a head-up display and three-zone climate control.

From the front there's nothing to choose between the X3 and X4, there's a bit of a tweak down the flanks with restyled wheelarches, but at the back it's much better, with a smooth and nearly rounded look, new slimmer lights, relocated number plate and twin exhausts.

The BMW X4 shares a lot with the third-gen X3, including the new iDrive infotainment system that features voice and gesture control, as standard. What's more, the available heads-up display is now 75 percent larger than before. United States buyers will choose between two models: The xDrive30i packs a 2.0-liter turbo four rated at 252 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque to deliver a 0-62 time of 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 149 miles per hour. Top dog of the range will be the M40i that packs 360bhp and gets from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds. Both xDrive packages bias torque to the rear under normal driving conditions.

The visual differences between the new X4 and old X4 could be rightly considered an eye test.

BMW " s relentless focus on the SUV/coupe sector shows no sign of waning with the release of an all-new BMW X4.

Four-wheel drive is standard across the range. It may be larger, but the new X4 is much lighter than the last model, as BMW has managed to trim 110 pounds of fat off the curb weight thanks to increased use of aluminium in the car's construction, resulting in a lower center of gravity that enhances the coupe SUV's cornering abilities.
