The new BMW X4 will be available in South Africa in the third quarter of 2018.
We're in the middle of an avalanche of BMW X-cars. While styling has generally remained evolutionary, the new X4 arrives with different dimensions, growing by 3 inches (76.2 millimeters) in length, 2.1 inches (53.3 mm) in wheelbase, and 1.4 inches (35.6 mm) in width. All of these elements come together to give it dynamically stretched proportions which are claimed to emphasise 50:50 weight distribution.
BMW has digitally taken the wraps off its new SUV - the second-generation X4.
BMW has also gone to the X3 for the X4's interior, the two virtually identical.
The 2019 BMW X4 xDrive30i is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. 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. Fold the rear seats down (in a variable 40:20:40 split) and that figure expands to over 50 cubic feet.
Sporty new seats, a larger navi display, a bigger HUD and a standard panoramic roof.
There's also a Driving Assistant Plus safety package available with features including steering and lane control assistant at speeds between 0 and 130mph, lane-keeping assist with active side collision protection, and crossing traffic warning and crossroads warning systems. Also from the front and back, it is wider in its span. Every model features a high resolution 10.25-inch infotainment display with touchscreen navigation. "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.
BMW has made LED headlights and taillights, twin exhaust tips and 19-inch alloys standard across the range. The quickest of them, just, will be the X4 M40i, with its gasoline-fueled and turbocharged inline six's 355 horsepower and 369-pound-foot pushing it to 62 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds. All are connected to BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system and the range is topped with the aforementioned M Performance models. The Bavarian automaker will also offer an array of packages - including xLine, M Sport X, and M Sport - to help customers cater their vehicle to their taste. Adaptive suspension is on the options list, as are more powerful M Sport brakes. The vehicle also has standard Active Guard with Front Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation with Braking, Pedestrian Warning with City Braking, and Speed Limit information. In the U.S., the new X4 is available in two flavors.
