X appeal? New BMW X4 SUV unveiled

2019 BMW X4 Revealed

The second generation BMW X4 debuts today as the BMW X4 M40i and the BMW X4 xDrive30i

All engines come mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel drive as standard. Both are almost identical to the old X4, but a high-power X4 M is in the plans for this generation.

Three full-size seats are fitted in the rear compartment of the X4, providing passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model. A 10.3ins version is available as an optional extra. A more powerful version of the same engine is fitted in the xDrive25d, with 228bhp and 0-62mph taking 6.8 seconds. This means the 252hp, xDrive30i four-cylinder petrol, the 190hp, xDrive20d four-cylinder diesel and the 265hp, xDrive30d six-cylinder diesel are expected. These seats can be split 40:20:40 (using buttons in the boot) as standard; doing so will increase the car's 525-litre boot to 1,430 litres. Combining robust all-round qualities with the sporty elegance of a BMW coupé, the model succeeded in arousing the enthusiasm of new target groups for the unique driving pleasure offered by a BMW X model.

True, the X4 has been on the market for only four years, and models usually last around 6-7 years in one generation before being renewed. Both it and the M40d will be available from launch, but the 30d and M40i only go into production in August 2018. 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. CO2 figures for the xDrive30d range from 156 to 163g/km depending on spec, with the less efficient M40d pumping out 170 to 173g/km.

BMW has revealed the 2018 model of its "Sports Activity Coupe" or say SUV-coupe, the X4, with a host of significant updates.

The vehicle is 81mm longer than the outgoing model, with 54mm added to the wheelbase and 37mm of extra width overall.

Other new features include BMW's display key, which can show you the car's fuel level, remaining range and service information on a small 2.2in display, as well as an air purification system.

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. The BMW X4 also stands a bit lower by a tenth of an inch to come in at 63.8 inches. The BMW plant in the USA state of SC is the "Home of BMW x models" for the BMW X models within the BMW Group's global production network.

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.

BMW is promising better comfort and luxury, compared to the old X4, with acoustic glass to reduce road noise and leather trim fitted as standard.
